Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Anyone going hiking, skiing.. or any kind of outdoor sport/motion
that I could tag along with ? :) Also looking for someone
interesting in joining me for a show.. or some music.. or a drink
at a pub.. or.. ?
Wow.. well I guess I'm me. I've never been too good at the "tell me
who you are in under 30sec" type thing. Much easier via Q&A.
I'll just say that I'm Scottish(Brit), Canadian and Swiss (3
passports.. that's normal right? :)). Currently living in Bp,
Hungary - been there for a while now, but not determined to stay
forever :) And I'm looking for ... friends. more.. however things
work out.. I prefer to meet up without preconceptions as to who we
are/will be and 'where its all going'
Currently diving into the morass that is my subconscious.. trying
to find out what makes me tick.. or tock ... why I have issues and
how to work with them. Exciting stuff.. and scary as hell all at
the same time.
I was born in Scotland and spent the first formative part of my
life pretty much IN a Buddhist center.. so a lot of stuff just
seems normal to me that may seem a bit odd.. and I've noticed that
my view of the world is often slightly askew... or maybe everyone
else's is? :D
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, making ends meet, trying to instill some sense of values
in my daughter. Looking for true love and happiness. I'd love to
have more children... just not that easy for a single guy..
although I guess I could hang around the playground a bit more...
maybe they wouldn't miss one? :D Ok.. that sounds a bit creepy...
much prefer our own .. really!
I'm also treading the slow path to realization.. maybe slower than
a lot of you.. but at least I know the path is there... (as if that
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, talking, listening, procrastinating.. sleeping.. cooking
(love to cook...),and making things, and well.. stuff :) and
understanding cat-speak.. I think that counts as a skill ..
Kindof a funny question - requires a certain amount of ego to say
I'M GREAT AT ... don't you think? :) I'm good at a lot of stuff
though :) Languages for instance....
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Slightly missing eyebrows (bad habit - working to break it), and my
sense of humour - anything else? Plz let me know :))
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Skip the laugh tracks - I love humor.. the intelligent British kind
especially - love Monty Python.. and absurd humour :) And well...
also can skip romance novels etc, otherwise pretty much anything
goes from classics to modern - from traditional to eclectic. I love
good food and wines, and well... sci-fi, fantasy, classics, other
fiction - I think I'm currently reading about 3 books.. I love art
and theater(although rarely get the opportunity to go).. and
concerts and.. for music - other than house/trance (which i guess
has its place with mood enhancers), I'm an omnivore - no absolute
favourites - more of a bit of everything :)
I'm actually using OKC as a hint list for books that I might like..
I hope that's not infringement on anyone's rights or anything
I think I'll watch almost anything with zombies, superpowers,
supernatural things and/or vampires :) But I do have a limit as to
how much camp I can take... :)
Salt & vinegar crisps make the world go round!!! Can't for the
life of me figure out why no-one makes them outside of Britain
Love wine... and other mixed things.. but beer is a no-no. I have
kind of a reverse Pavlovian reflex instilled in me from an early
teen experience.. and ugh.. nope... just can't do it... anything
but beer! :D
Update: I DRANK BEER!! Ok.. only 2 - I didnt want to push my luck,
but it's a start :) 1 red ale made by Kell's in Seattle and 1
Killkenny. St Paddy's day was the perfect testing grounds :D
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
family + daughter, friends, books, my cats, women, sex(or rather
intimacy - w/o that its just mechanics) and um.. oh yes.. good wine
and food.. (boooring.. I know - Its a work in progress :)) Sex is
important.. but not indiscriminately!!
And no travelling without my kindle!! :)
oops.. thats more than six... too bad :P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, love, happiness. Injustice, global warming. Why am I still
single? Problems with the government, corruption, food, wines,
moving to the countryside somewhere.. and so on. :) I'd still like
to write a book - just need the inspiration and the time ;)
Why things are just so f****d up in general in Hungary, and is
there any chance for change... UPDATE - nope.. no chance... just a
downward spiral currently....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not partying. Either at a friend's place for wine/food, or with my
daughter, or with a book at home. I hate cigarette smoke, and most
of my friends have new women/wives/kids, so the party group has
evaporated. No worries - at least I don't have to burn my clothes
at the end of the evening :)
Love to get out and dance.. listen to some music... get myself
moving.. but sometimes need a little push/pull to get started...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Do I really have to choose ONE thing? :-)
hmm.. well how about that as a child I used to knit and sew clothes
and outfits for my action men figures... :) I don't remember how to
knit however... so relax... no socks or sweaters for xmas :)
