Hullo! I'm Pete. I'm the bigger one in the picture, not the little
furry one with the tail. Wish I had a tail. Evolution has really
ripped us humans off in that regard.
I've spent the last couple of years working pretty hard, and
haven't done enough playing to match. My social life used to be a
small group of close friends, but they've spread out a bit, and I'm
looking to meet some new people.
I won't ramble on about myself too much. It just feels awkward.
Message me and ask things!
What I’m doing with my life
Loving my job at a challenging and fast-growing company.
Learning guitar, slowly.
Helping with research into penguins on weekends.
Riding bikes quite a lot. (The sort you pedal. Motors are for
Trying to get myself organised to use some of the vast amounts of
leave I have saved up. (I managed to take some time off to go to
Costa Rica last year, which was amazing!)
I’m really good at
knowing enough to realise that the Dunning-Kruger effect renders
this section pretty pointless.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've honestly no idea! I'm going to start asking people I meet now.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Always hard to pick favourites.
Some things that have been on the menu lately:
Reading: J.G. Ballard short stories, anything by Stanislaw
Listening to: Little Barrie, The Dead Weather, The Black Keys,
early David Bowie, Ray LaMontagne, London Elektricity
Watching: Old episodes of Blakes 7, Repo: The Genetic Opera, Game
The six things I could never do without
- Animals (they're the best people)
- Warm socks
- Incomplete lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How to get better at various things
- My friends
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to bed early, so I can get up on Saturday for a bike ride.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I always go straight to the "Unacceptable answers" bit of profiles
I look at.
You should message me if
you want to. The idea of this is to meet new people, right? :)
