Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You know, I'm not really sure. I think I broadly fit the awkward

I'm just pissing in the wind. It's not what I set out to do, but
this place is so full of hot air that the gusts are altogether
unavoidable, and a man’s got to piss somewhere, or so they say, so

increase in the amount of "resonance" that this particular
patriarchal title had with target demographics, so that's what they

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm hunting for a reason to hunt. I don't suppose you've seen one

I am fundamentally lazy. As it happens, thinking of ways to avoid
hard work takes a lot of hard work.
I have a good mind for solving problems, and I love to create
things, though most of my skills could broadly be considered
useless when it comes to real life - I play a few instruments,
draw, design and program videogames, and do various other
multimedia things. I cannot cook or drive - though I'm pretty
decent at MacGyvering broken things around the house, for what it's

Whenever somebody describes themselves as a ‘happy’ or ‘upbeat’
person, I secretly hope that something bad happens to them. Not
really bad… but, you know, ‘bad enough’.
I am a little cynical, a little dysthymic, but the frustration I
