My self-summary
It is in my nature to be self-depreciating. However I doubt that is helpful to a dating profile so for the moment we'll skip that shall we?

Much better. I'm mostly cheerful and loyal to a fault. I read voracious on a variety of topics. I enjoy the theatre, the cinema and museums of all sorts.

I'm ambitious but at the moment hesitant at where to aim that ambition. I'm seriously considering where best to tread next on my career path.

I aim ever to be self improving. I play squash, both for my health and because I enjoy it. I used to swim regularly and am considering returning to doing so. I'm designing and building a telescope (mostly at the designing stage, I need to work out how to roll the brass and save for the lenses).

I'm also faintly eccentric and play board games, card games and games of nearly ever sort.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I work in Information Technology, supporting print management systems. I don't plan to do this forever. I just don't really know where I want to go next.

I spend my spare time working on a variety of interests and hobbies or with friends.
I’m really good at
I'm a good, if recently rather uninspired cook. Recipes welcome. Otherwise I tend to be quick to daydream and have a decent talent for improvisation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my accent, though I do try to dress strikingly (more often comically, despite my best efforts). I spent some time living in the US as a teenager and a slight twang in my speech has never gone away.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Song of Ice and Fire, The Splintered Kingdom, The Brothers Kazamarov, Paradise Lost, Gulliver's Travels, and any short story by D.H Lawrence.

Movies: Almost Famous, Blade Runner, Brick, Gattaca, Hot Fuzz, Kontroll, Inception, Millers Crossing, the Seven Samurai, Scott Pilgrim Versus the World, Sydney/Hard Eight and Unforgiven.

Musically there is very little I don't like, but left to my own devices I tend to listen to 60's, 70's and 80's Rock, some Metal, some Grundge, some Punk, some Jazz, some Funk and Classical Music.

As for food, well I like just about everything.
The six things I could never do without
* My mind, my ability to think makes me happy, nearly as much as it makes me miserable.
* Imagination. The world isn't a drab place (in fact it is amazing) but a good imagination makes it so much more fun.
* Books. I love books.
* People. I'm a social person (despite any indication to the contrary) and I enjoy the presence and company of other people.
* Sleep, per chance to dream.
* My glasses, as it would be extremely difficult for me to see without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the sense of deja vu I occasionally get might just mean I'm remembering my entire life from somewhere near the end of it.

My growing disappointment that I can't possibly have invented a time machine in the future, because I'd have taken it back in time to show myself. And this hasn't happened yet..
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully somewhere more interesting than home.
