I'm a theatre technician, with an astrophysics degree, and an
obsession with history, also I might be a bit of a geek, opinion
I like to think I'm practical and I love puzzles and problem
solving, but even better if those problems can be in an imaginary
universe, however I'm dreadful at cryptic crosswords.
I'll happily argue or debate anything but it's best not to let me
get started into full lecture mode on a topic I love unless you
really wanted the answer to your question.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm settling in to my new home and trying to work out what I want to do next. Next up is my bathroom, I'm taking suggestions for nice showers and colour schemes. I never liked bathtubs, my knees get cold.
I’m really good at
Talking to new people - yet terrible at going to new places. You
lead the way, I'll do the talking!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read almost anything, I'm a huge fan of sci-fi - Iain M Banks,
Peter F Hamilton, Richard Morgan, Clarke, Asimov, Gibson - I also
like fantasy/historical stuff - Gaiman, China Mieville, Patrick
O'Brian, CJ Sansom.
I watch much less - no TV - but I get box sets! West Wing,
Deadwood, Babylon 5, BSG, Blackadder - that kind of stuff.
I will watch literally anything at the cinema, I have no standards!
The six things I could never do without
Internets (and all that comes with them).
A sense of humour (Day to day you need it!)
Books (or the kindle - but really the books)
A washing machine - Of all the modern conveniences and gadgets I
think I'd miss it the most.
A warm bed - really if you've got a snug the world is better.
Glasses - I tried contacts, they hurt, I like being able to see.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ideas for things which will likely never happen, Space colonies,
bookshelves, new carpets, what I should have said, making long and
detailed plans and then never getting started, solving maths
I like thinking about history and current events and trying to
figure out what happens next. I sometimes use this to write
terrible stories or as fodder for fictional worlds, which I then
never use for anything. I spend a fair bit of time working out what
I'd do if I was in the bronze age.
I spend a lot of time alone, sometimes I just think about food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sadly I'm probably at work, I'll be sitting at the back of the room
working while everyone else listens to the nice music or watches
the interesting drama. Sundays are the new Fridays!
You should message me if
You want to? If you want to ask me something? If you feel like suggesting a use for my hat?
You should just message me for giggles, I could do with the conversation!
