If you're looking for excitement, thrills, all kinds of boistrous
activity... that'd not be me.
If you're looking for someone quiet, home-loving and generally
reluctant to go out, perhaps you ought to reconsider your
I'm a guy to go to dinner with. Even if it goes badly, at least
we'll have had dinner.
I am solitary, quiet, and weird
What I’m doing with my life
Discovering how little I need to do to spoil everything.
I’m really good at
electronics and typing whilst lying down. Well.... I have to sit up
to do the electronics.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that I have a nice face. I'm not sure what else that
implied, but it probably wasn't good. I understand I have a good
voice too. Also I have no taste in clothes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) 'The Prince' - Nicolo Machiavelli
(b) 'Metropolis' - Fritz Lang (1927)
(c) ...... silence .....
(d) Something comforting, but not pasta... unless it's lasagne; I
quite like lasagne. In fact... I might have some now!
The six things I could never do without
5. Smartarse remarks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the European Working Time Directive, and why it doesn't seem to
apply to me. The way that I either haven't got a job, and so don't
have the money to live a full and productive life, or I do have a
job and am expected to work sixty hours a week or more, and don't
have time for a full and productive life.
Right now I'd like to lend my former unemployed self some money so
he can go out and enjoy himself.
++++ THIS JUST IN +++++
I've changed jobs. I have more time now. I've taken a huuuuuuge
pay-cut, but I don't care! I'm sure I'll make it back somehow.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to find something to do. Having been a hermit for so long,
either from excessive work or the opposite, I've become somewhat
socially deskilled. Okay, I'll admit I was never brilliant in the
first place, but this hasn't made me any better. I'm sometimes to
be found in a certain wine bar with friends, chatting online or
eating somewhere. Why? What did you have in mind?
Working in a roughneck environment has meant that it takes me
longer to change into my more refined self, too. I'm working on my
Clark Kent impression though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hardly ever know what's going on. If I say the wrong thing, it's
because I don't understand. I don't understand women. That's OK
though, because I don't understand men, children, animals or plants
either. I'm quite good with stones.
Oh, and I once saved 150 passengers and crew on a flight to Greece,
when a madman tried (with a degree of success) to smash out one of
the windows at 20,000 ft. A girl from Minnesota and I, beat him,
trussed and cuffed him and tie-wrapped him to his seat... but it
didn't make the news. I did eventually get a letter of thanks from
KLM. They got my name wrong and mangled my address. It's nice to
You should message me if
you can explain why combat-trousers don't go with tweed
Oh yes; I'm a compulsive cuddler. If this is a problem, it's
probably best not to talk to me.
