Friendly geek. Can be treated like a cat, may purr when this happens.
Occasionally struggling with mental health. When this happens, if you bring me tea and a hug I will be grateful.
What I’m doing with my life
Clowning for the amusement of others.
Also geeking out - I am a computer programmer by trade - a job I love, and I tap dance, read, play computer games, sew and mess around on the internet in my spare time (hello internet!)
I’m really good at
Learning, helping people and teaching. So, if you want to know something, or want to know how to do something, look me up.
The first things people usually notice about me
perhaps my lime and purple glasses? or perhaps that I am looking around, wondering at the world.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite book: Good Omens. Closely followed by Anathem, and just about anything written by Iain Banks. I'm also pretty keen on Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Mercedes Lackey, David Eddings, Elizabeth Moon, Rachel Bach and basically if it's sappy fantasy I'm in.
Favourite shows? I liked Community, up to a point (somewhere around season 4) and I'm a definite fan of Orange is the new Black.
Favourite music: I rather like Fiona Apple, and I'm starting to collect Regina Spektor, Anais Mitchell and Ani di Franco's work, and Newton Faulkner is just brilliant.
Favourite food? I'm very fond of green thai curry, and cheese (not that I have tried them together)
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
making things, sex, mental health.
On a typical Friday night I am
Tap dancing, cooking, possibly sewing. Occasionally at the pub.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well now, that wouldn't be private any more, would it?
You should message me if
You like board games, want to find out about me, or just want to chat. Especially if you want to chat in spanish, as I am trying to learn to speak it.
Lovely people, I would actually welcome you messaging me first, just so you know.
