My self-summary
Thinking too much, drinking too much and being thoroughly inappropriate in almost all situations.
What I’m doing with my life
Distancing myself from it.

I work somewhere in the intersection of publishing and technology, but mostly on the content/marketing side.

I like learning how bits of London fit together and then getting overexcited about it. Currently I'm exploring foraging, mudlarking and living alone.

I used to do a bit of writing (Independent, Sunday Times, New Statesman &c), usually on pop culture, current affairs, feminism, the internet. I don't really do that much now; I got distracted.

I also used to run comedy gigs with a political slant. Here is an article in the Guardian about them http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2012/may/31/dimble-dancing-bbc-question-time
I’m really good at
I can play the spoons, type at 120wpm and deliver a lamb. Studies suggest 9/10 men find these to be desirable traits in a partner.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Virginia Woolf, Jean Rhys, Jonathan Safran Foer, Mark Z Danielewski, Terry Pratchett, Jo Rowling, Douglas Adams, Philip Pullman, ee cummings, DH Lawrence, Meg Rosoff, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Ursula le Guin, John Wyndham, China Mieville, Jorge Luis Borges.

Fragments d'un Discours Amoureux by Barthes is my favourite self-help book. Histoire de l'œil by Bataille is my favourite book about someone putting eggs up her cunt.

Film: most anything involving Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, Charlie Kaufmann, Jan Svankmajer, Pedro Almodóvar. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is my favourite film.

Buffy > Dollhouse > Firefly
Borgen > Broen > Forbrydelsen
Doctor Who (Moffat notwithstanding)
Spaced, & all the obvious British comedies of that ilk.

There's probably no point me even bothering to cite Chris Morris or Stewart Lee, is there?

Stand-up comedy and (web)comics are also things.
The six things I could never do without
Time alone
I spend a lot of time thinking about

(Anything you can do, I can do meta.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Drunk, with friends, or catching up on my tellyshows. Occasionally all three.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once wrote slash fanfiction about George Osborne and Peter Mandelson. No, you can't read it.
You should message me if
I have a minimum required typing speed of 60wpm. This is a competitive marketplace after all & none of us are getting any younger.

Also: beard.
