My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I go through life with my head in clouds of one sort or another, only occasionally bumping down to reality in order to take on supplies. I love listening to people talk about their passions, regardless of what those may be. Socially I am much like a hedgehog, being quiet and shy and quite fond of rootling in leafmould for delicious slugs. I'm interested in more or less everything, and consider Wikipedia to be humanity's second greatest achievement. When I walk past nice trees I try to give them a little pat so as to let them know that they're appreciated. I hoard secondhand books. I quite enjoy climbing up things, and sometimes I shoot arrows into other things. I have strong views about bad movies. I sometimes wonder if this is all a dream, and am sad for no explicable reason. I'd like to write a book, but I don't yet know what I want to say.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I sit in a stylish yet surprisingly uncomfortable chair and try to counsel people through their computer woes, which generally involves sympathising about how awful Office is while stealthily restarting everything, though every now and then I get to rescue hours of someone's work which they were certain was gone for ever which makes me feel like JASON FREAKING BOURNE. It's nice to help people, but at the end of the day there isn't much of a sense of accomplishment, so I'm scouting about for something new.

My original ambition was to wear a lab coat and fire lasers into things to see what happens because LASERS. Failing that, solar panels. Solar panels are magic. Sadly, what they don't tell you about science is that it's not all lasers and secret formulas and eighty-eight miles per hour. It's mostly (and by that I mean entirely) maths. And that's terrible.

My secondary ambition is to write, but as I read more and more I become less and less sanguine about the prospect of ever writing anything worthwhile, so I have reduced the ambition to just being Bernard Black.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Daydreaming. I see so many things wrong with the world, and like to imagine how things could be if they were different. I appreciate that this is not an entirely practical skill. I don't know what you want from me. I'm quite good at a few things, I guess - but really good? Youtube has made us realise that for anything we thought we were good at, there's a disgustingly cute six-year-old who is better than we can ever, ever dream of being. So daydreaming is all you get. Go figure.
The first things people usually notice about me

Is that I'm awkward to a Hugh Grant degree. Sadly, he's not popular any more. I'm ten years too late. Damn it.

It could also possibly be my accent. I'm from Oxford. I can't help it.

American barista: "Say, where are you guys from, anyway?"
My friend: "England"
Barista: "I heard guys from England before - they didn't sound like you."
Me: "Er, we're from Oxford. It's a bit different."
Friend: "Yeah, even other English people make fun of us".

I mean, really, what?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like old, yellowed paperbacks that smell musty and small, mysterious cloth-bound books that no-longer have any visible title.

I like movies that are in languages I don't understand which I leave not knowing entirely what happened.

I can eat my bodyweight in pistachio nuts, and have done on several distinct occasions.

On some days I like everything. on others, I don't like very much at all.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
What, never? People have endured much while having had so very little. I think that I'll instead list six things that I'd really rather not have to do without, if it's all the same to you.

* Nice, proper books, which are well printed and properly bound, as if you're having to worry about the type rubbing off or wrestling with the spine then you're always going to be distracted.

* Hot running water. I like showers that assault you. I always end up living in places which have showers that dribble on you. Life is not fair.

* Cold, outdoorsy water. Lakes, rivers or even - joy of joys, the sea - good for the soul. You can't be properly medative when overlooking a cornfield. Seriously. Try it. Boriiiiiiiiiing.

* Lime juice cordial. It keeps the scurvy at bay, you see.

* This is hard.

* I'll come back later.
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?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I left my heart in San Francisco.

I have been known to make passes at girls who wear glasses. Especially if they have short hair.

You will always find me in the kitchen at parties. Generally doing the washing up.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy a challenge.

You enjoy ducks (in a afternoon-at-the-park sense more than a crispy-with-pancakes sense)

You would like a conversation high in whimsy with no discernable point.
