My self-summary
A wandering Scot who's made it back to London after stints in Brighton, Bath, Chile and India. Originally left to escape the doldrums of 5 month long winters followed by the occasional sunny day when even a passing cloud sends you diving for the cover of your jumper, and am now only worry that my accent might be deserting me. Saw a saltire in the sky the other day and felt mildly patriotic before realising that the only reason we have sky blue in our flag is that we so rarely see it.

I love reading novels and poetry, writing, art, theatre, photography, music, making ridiculous and contrived puns and other language games, scrabble, wine, cooking (I find this strangely cathartic), cycling and walking, not necessarily in that order. I am open to trying combinations of the above. Also love watching films, but am terrible at getting round to doing it - would welcome any coercion in this direction.

I enjoy exploring and finding new places to go in London, especially where you can combine the arts, coffee and good conversation. Don't enjoy the tendency of some to create pitched knowledge-of-london-and-I've-found-the-cheapest-rent-in-the-East-'oh you're just settling in' competitions that sometimes seem de rigueur all too often.
What I’m doing with my life
During the week I work as an English teacher in an inner city secondary school. Love the students and being in a vibrant environment, but constantly fighting the ever encroachment of education into my time.

Creating new projects to get over-excited about.
Wondering what makes non-iron shirts non-ironable.
I’m really good at
Boiling the kettle and forgetting about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got two different coloured eyes. This can take some a matter of seconds to notice, others a lot longer...

The ensuing conversation can take various forms:
Person: "Mike, is it just me, or why on earth have you deemed it socially acceptable to wear one coloured contact lense?"
Me: "I've decided that I'm going to go goth for a week. Also I thought that by doing this I'd be able to see in 3d better."
Person: "Oh. That makes perfect sense then..." (exits stage left)

Person: "Wow, you've got different coloured eyes! Were you born like that, or did you suffer some horrific and deeply traumatic accident that could potentially cause a breakdown if you're forced to recount it in public.
Me: "No, I was born like this, although I could just be saying that to avoid said breakdown."

Person: "Wow... are you like David Bowie?"
Me: "No, sorry to disappoint you."
Person: "Can you tell me where he is?"
Me: "No. Goodbye"

Person: "Wow, you've got different coloured eyes. Which one is which?"
Me: "I'm not sure, you're the one looking at them. Plus, one of them decided to change colour some time ago, so I'm no longer sure. Occular fashion moves quickly, and we have to keep up."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've generally got a few books on the go at any one time, and would have to admit that I'm shamelessly geeky in my love of literature. Pretty open minded, but generally love anything from the twentieth century. Recently I've been reading Foster Wallace, Genet, Beckett, George Saunders, Ben Lerner, James Baldwin. Poetry - anything conceptual or modern from Pound to Ashberry. I guess my all-time favourites would include: Hitchhiker's Guide, Gatsby, Master & Margherita, Anna Karenina, Blake and Ginsberg.

Steve McQueen, Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Cohen Bros., Woody Allen, Chris Morris. Like old silent movies and screwball comedy, and absolutely love the Marx Brothers. Foreign language movies, especially Almodovar, Herzog, Wenders.

Didn't have a TV for years and didn't miss it & rarely watch is. The Wire & Boardwalk Empire, Breaking Bad and other 'you haven't lived till you watch this' TV. Anything by Chris Morris, Armando Iannuci or Charlie Brooker. Oh, and Alan Partridge.

This is getting too long, so for music I'm just going to say that I pretty much like anything from Django Rheinhart to Jeff Mills. House & techno for a shuffle. Love jazz, blues, folk etc. Bjork and Bat For Lashes are generally on at some point. Currently can't get Little Dragon off for long.

I'll eat and try pretty much anything. Lentils are my friends and I cook some damn good Indian.
The six things I could never do without

coffee

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The 6th thing I couldn't do without.
Whether anyone has made it down this far in what has become a pretty self-indulgent monologue...
Whether anyone who's made it down this far is actually paying any attention anymore...
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually in a pub somewhere with colleagues or friends. If not, I'll be cooking or going to the theatre. After a bad week though, I might just sit and stare at a blank wall for a bit as it is actually quite therapeutic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to think that America was another name for England. I was very young at the time...
