Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What could one write that hasn't been written? Let's start at the
Blank. A (web)page. Thoughts.
I am an intellectual. Shy. Reasonably witty: at least I amuse
myself. Or amused myself, once. Reasonably sporty in the sense that
I have discovered that I really like dance classes even though they
make it clear, on a daily basis, that I am (a) as flexible as a
stick of wood and (b) of the many talents I (think I) possess,
remembering dance steps is not one of them.
I look upon it as a way to keep me humble. Humbler. And it allows
me to set myself important and useful goals - like - I WILL do a
double pirouette without falling over before I die, and I WILL do a
I am a boat, against, and the current

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In the words of the play "frequently rushing around"
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Really good? Well, who in the world is _really_ good at
Not much. I'm pretty good at many things - a sort of fifth-rate
Leonardo da Vinci born about 800 years too late. (Except that I
can't paint or sculpt.) I'd make a good dilettante. An adequate
long-term house guest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This is such a silly category, but one can be as intertextual as
one likes, I suppose. Faves would have to include Nabokov. (I wish
I was as literate as him in just one language...) Tolstoy, though
NOT Anna Karenina apart from the one great line about happy
families. It's all downhill after that. Shakespeare but not all of
him - can't abide the histories (I don't find fat drunken men
_that_ funny...you can see them around town any Friday or Saturday
night you wish...)
Oh yes! - this was a _favourites_ category! Don't you think that
non-favourites are more interesting?
I have a soft spot for EE Milne and Pooh, and also one for Arthur
Ransome and Swallows & Amazons. (Active heroines! boats! - it's
why I took up dinghy sailing at the age of 10...and stopped it when
I almost got my brother and myself killed...)
I read my way through of all JM Barrie's plays and lived to tell
the tale. Austen (of course); Woolf. Salman Rushdie, but not much
of the later stuff. Speaking of which, I recently sampled some
Annie Proulx and decided I need to read more... I have really
enjoyed the Lessing autobiographies. Probably should get around to
Movies: I love classics. In the more recent genre, I really enjoyed
Sideways. I saw Gravity and was moderately impressed. I liked Blue
Jasmine but wonder about Woody Allen.
Music: classical _esssspeccciallly big lush romantic stuff,
broadway. mostly. have recently found myself liking more chamber
music than I ever thought I would. (Who thought one could get sick
(I'll drink to that/ And one for Mahler!)...anybody identify
food: I love spicy food, and I intend to go on loving spicy food
even though it doesn't love me any more. After all, this is a site
for unrequited love, no?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
not making lists.
not making shopping lists.
not making shopping lists that I leave at home.
not making shopping lists and forgetting the pen at home so I have
to tear off the corners as I buy groceries
not forgetting to put toilet paper on the shopping list.
not forgetting to check that my bus pass hasn't fallen _out_ of the
pocket of my jacket when I stuffed the shopping list back in. (Hey,
if anyone sees an old bus pass that has no name on it - it's mine!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why rorschach tests look like Jackson Pollock.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing the things I typically do. C'est typique, tuo tyyppi.
