My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a straight cut thoughtful guy with a playful streak a mile wide. I hail from South Africa (left for good at age 24) and suspect this tangibly flavours me.

I am also an imposing (dashing?) 6'2" in OKC units, which are clearly a little more petite than their real world counterparts.

If you are into Myers-Briggs, I am a Leo conceived in Virgo in the year of the rooster.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living abroad, finding a haven which strikes a nice balance between stimulation and security. South Africa is looking a little woolly these days, so I set my caravan rolling as soon as I graduated to adulthood.

1981-1999 (Durban, South Africa)
2000 (Lillehammer, Norway)
2001 (Durban/Milwaukee)
2002-2005 (Grahamstown, South Africa)
2006 (London/Oslo)
2007 (Oslo/New York)
2008 (New York)
2009-present (San Francisco)

I have dropped anchor here and am really taken with San Francisco. I acquired 2 (hand-me-down) cats in New York and have every intent of making myself part of the furniture.

If I had to live elsewhere (as a foreigner living on an ephemeral visa, I have to have contingency plans lest the INS load me into a trebuchet) I would probably descend on Oahu, Berlin, Barcelona or Brisbane, in that order.

run, boulder, traipse, bike, snow board
use a motorbike as my primary means of motorized transportation

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
butchering the Queens tongue
non sequiturs
calling bullshit
spouting bullshit (like a teapot)
licking my plate clean
tearing the bottom out of my pants
seducing animals (Like a ballsy snow white)

food: larb ped, lamb stew, squid ink risotto, pork chops, Dolsot bibimbap

music: Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, Bjork, Springbok Nude Girls, Beirut, Portishead, Broken Social Scene, Daft Punk, The Flaming Lips, Paul Simon, Queen, Rodriguez (I listen to a wide range of crud, I am not going to articulate every musical strain which rocks my tits)

This is South African and rocks my world:

(Finding South African music clips on youtube is like searching for dodos (Raphus cucullatus) in thick scrub; pretty fucking unrewarding)

The Flaming Lips' "Do you realize" is the most bitter-sweet song I have ever heard:

This displaces me:

books: Dune series (latter books), The Devils Dictionary, A Fire Upon the Deep, Jitterbug perfume, Sprout Mask Replica, Kalki

movies: Being John Malkovich/Big Fish/12 Monkeys

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Always hinges on the audience; For broad public consumption: I developed an insanely intense fear of death at 5 or 6 after my father made a tax related joke, which left me sleepless for several months and prone to night terrors: the realization that death is truly inevitable. This passed with the death of my favourite dog to date; we share the inevitability, it is a common experience.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have some curiosity about the world and have had some success (or at least the gumption!) in exploring it.

You suspect you can make me snort milk out of my nose with a well placed punch line or a well placed punch. (younger brother masochism ahoy)

You have pluck.
