Here are some adjectives I might use to describe myself:
caring, reliable, calm, witty, quirky, shy, happy, warm,
thoughtful, reserved, resilient, youthful.
Here are some I wouldn't use to describe myself:
brash, assertive, aggressive, loud, insensitive.
Will that do for starters?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm kept pleasantly busy by my work and children. I still have time
to do a bit of running, learn to play the congas, read a good book,
water the plants, go to a gig, travel abroad, see friends and
family, fill out profiles on OK Cupid (oh joy!)
I’m really good at
Not blowing my own trumpet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have most of my own hair.
I have all of my own teeth.
I could do with putting on a bit of weight.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read Hillary Mantel's Wolf Hall recently which I thoroughly
enjoyed. To my surprise I also found myself really enjoying the
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I thought the film adaptation was
pretty good too. I gravitate towards art house/world cinema rather
than Hollywood blockbusters; a favourite of mine is the Spanish
supernatural thriller The Orphanage.
I don't do shows very much; I like a bit of comedy - Jo Brand, Bill
I'm a bit bored of mainstream pop/rock/indie these days; the Young
Knives have their moments. I used to listen to a lot of Nick Cave;
he makes me laugh. The last concert I went to was a flamenco hip
hop band called Ojos de Brujo. I'm listening to Classic FM as I
I like to cook and eat out; Chinese, Indian, Mexican, vegetarian,
The six things I could never do without
Okay I'm getting really bored of this now. I can do without pretty
much anything except human contact, though I do have an unhealthy
relationship with the BBC World Service at times.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my next holiday
On a typical Friday night I am
looking forward to the weekend with a glass of wine nearby.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a list maker.
You should message me if
you know what is good for you. Sorry! That sounds like some kind of
veiled threat. Oh well, I'm tired and it is late so time to unplug
from the matrix and go to bed.
