My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Overexcitable hairy geek with a romantic streak and an open mind and heart. Full of childlike enthusiasm. Into board games, tea and cake.

I see beauty all around me. I love softly falling rain at night. I love the sound of the wind in the trees, or the laughter from a distant party. I love sunrises and sunsets, I love the sky when it's anything but grey, but love the grey when broken with thunderclouds, lightning or rain. I love kicking piles of leaves as I walk, I love tasting the air by the sea, I love being warm inside when it's cold out there, I love staring into and listening to the crackle of a real fire, I love to tease and be teased. I love to play and experiment, I love to learn, I love to grow, and I love it when someone changes my mind.

[edit: I may have been in a fairly whimsical place when I wrote the above. Take it with a pinch of salt, I'm not that serious]
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Never enough! I've an urge to explore, to experience new things and to do more! Taken to cycling around the quiet roads nearby, I find myself wanting to read more, but often failing, and writing instead. Crappy poetry mostly :)

Ran a business in the north for 7 years, selling Dice, Warhammer, D&D and more online. The past year I've been in a geeky job at a charity in Cambridge, surrounded by computery stuff.

I love car boot sales, charity shops, auctions, and wandering around new, interesting, and preferably picturesque places. Especially if they have a nice tea room, or funky little shops where you never quite know what you'll find.

At those picturesque places, I'd like to take more photos, a hobby that's been on the back burner too long, and I'm trying to get better at photoshopping the hell out of them afterwards.

I'm contemplating whether I can muster the focus to actually finish a degree. Had a couple of years of philosophy before dropping out, thinking now of psychology, literature, politics, philosophy again, classics, history, or something geeky. Really, all of the above. Maybe I could cobble together something with the OU....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Witty retorts.
Getting lost. I look on it as an impromptu adventure!
Bartering. With a twinkle in my eyes.
Smiling in bed.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Overwhelming enthusiasm. I approach the world with wonder and excitement. Then, I'm cursed by indomitable shyness with anyone I fancy - distract me. If you like me, just jump on me, I assure you the quality of conversation will improve.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I am shaped by books, as a child I read profusely. Not enough in adulthood, but working to remedy that, especially the classics. Around the age of 13 I flicked through Lady Chatterley's Lover, for the naughty bits obviously, but ended up reading the whole thing. Iain Banks and Bernard Cornwell fill a lot of my shelves. Love the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings I found a little too meandering. The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy is fantastic, and I've recently quite liked a few novels from John Scalzi. Finally started my first Terry Pratchett just yesterday, catching the end of a radio adaptation convinced me to finally do so!

A new section! I recently read my first comic book in about 20 years - and I loved it. Volume 1 (then 2 and 3) of Saga. Fantastic stuff. I won't list more because, quite frankly, it would just list every comic I've read, and that seems silly. Maybe when I've read enough to pick out more genuine favorites.

Some films that I remember, Dr Strangelove, Dogma, Barry Lyndon, Garden State, Thank You for Smoking, I know I've forgotten many, many more. I've liked most South Korean films I've seen, have a soft spot for a good romantic comedy, and I enjoy a clever action film too. Oh, plus Star Wars, AND Star Trek, at least until the recent reboot. Really, I'll watch anything, but reserve the right to forget it. Even if it was good.

Most admiring of British comedy, Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Yes Minister (the old one), Monty Python and more. American shows, House, Game of Thrones (the cash is green at least on both of those), Suits, True Blood, Castle < Firefly.

Mostly rock and metal, also folky. Flavour of the month is Germanic pagan folk metal. Rush, Rammstein, Nightwish, Neil Young, AC/DC, Seth Lakeman, Cat Stevens, Mumford & Sons, Kate Bush, Show of Hands, The Corries, and Depeche Mode, off the top of my head, there are many more.

Grew up vegetarian, now catching up on meat! Squeamish about seafood, I don't like it when my food can watch me eat it. Red wine, wheat beer, refreshing ciders, ice tea, fresh mint tea and chamomile too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The internet, sometimes undervalued, often squandered

Stories. To read, to watch, to listen, however they come.

Radio 4. I don't even turn off the archers anymore

Driving. More precisely, the sense of freedom it instills.

A modest of hoard of things I do not need. I'd love to be free of material possessions and invest everything into experiences instead, but I know it would leave a tiny hole deep inside

And finally, everything one actually needs to survive. Food, warmth etc. Seems to be a common cop out, I think I'll take it.
