My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I thought it might be fun to join OkCupid. Always fun to talk with and meet interesting new people, don't you agree?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hitting the town with friends and enjoying life. Reading stuff and writing things and wanting to be an incredibly good writer and currently being an okay-to-mediocre writer. Busting the tyrannical bullshit of the Madonna/Whore spectrum. I've always loved learning fascinating things - jumping into books at random and soaking up every last bit of info in there; or more in the last few years, simply sitting down and talking to people, especially those of us more elderly than most. Sure, oral histories will never have the precision and permanence of written prose, but wow, they're fascinating! Done well, the gentleman or gentlelady in question will splurge forth these amazing, riveting stories of decades past, and giving this incredible insight into how their childhoods were so alien yet so similar to our own.

What, you may ask, the hell does this have to do with the "What I'm doing with my life" section? Simple. Big Stories. It's incredible just how much depth of knowledge there is in, say, the WW2 Pacific Theatre, or the social implications of advanced neurology. I keep discovering this amazing joy in communicating to others just how absorbing and substantial and *important* these things are, not just for reasons of general curiosity, but because they affect us directly, in our everyday lives. The phrase "Those who are ignorant of history are condemned to repeat it" is so true. So why not write gripping, visceral stories about them?

Let's see, what else. Throwing parties and cooking gigantic and idiotic objects. You know the Food Pyramid? For a party last year I made one. Fully half a metre high. It was incredible. Hordes of Aztecs kept trying to crash the party and sacrifice little chocolate virgins before it.

And there's this.

Holy shit, where do I start? Books: the Discworld novels, Iain M. Banks (The Hydrogen Sonata was blah, The Player Of Games holy shit), Kim Stanley Robinson (2312 blah, that one with Future-Galileo wasn't half bad, although if I can't remember the title clearly not that amazing), Tim Ferris, Frankie Boyle and Andy Zaltzman (a recurring problem with comedians' books - they write shit that you just know would be fantastic when performed by them, but on paper lacks oomph). If I mention every book I like, it'll take 27 years.

TV shows: I've developed quite the taste for UK comedy panel shows. QI, Mock The Week, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Would I Lie To You, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, quite a few others. Finding decent torrents for all of them is ever so much fun, but I got every single episode of the first four some time ago.

Standup comedy: The UK scene is going through one hell of a boom :D Too many to list here. If you got a Top 50 UK Comics list together, I'd probably love love love the lot. Except Michael McIntyre and Peter Kay. I find them as funny as bowel cancer. But what better way to point out the completely subjective nature of a good bit of standup by noting the packed stadiums of people who love them? Each to their own, I say.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
As you might have guessed from my photos, booze, suits and horses. Hmph. That's only three. Writing stories that make my friends simultaneously collapse in giggles and go "What's WRONG with you?" GOOD sex. Friends and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having dinner with friends, or programming, or writing, or riding my motorbike and making a point of riding extra-fast over speed bumps, or re-enacting that scene from Bram Stoker's Dracula with the sexy lady vampires.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One of the most idiotic things I've ever done: some years ago, I ran through the Haitaitai bus tunnel to try and shave 15 minutes off my walk into town, and got nabbed halfway through by a furious bus driver.

Although there are those who think messages along the lines of "hey" and nothing else are just fine and dandy, so I take the piss and reply "Oh you're such a scholar!" and then add the Hamlet "To be or not to be" soliloquy, and I encourage you to do the same.
