My self-summary

Writer, drinker, skilled cigarette roller, laughs like a witch and falls over frequently.

I like breakfast dates, I dislike being out of my house-gremlin when the night buses are running unless I have a full pack of tobacco, a notebook/pen and just the sound of my footsteps to keep me company.

I can imitate a fifteen year old boy quite well, but tend to stick with the aesthetic of a person in their early twenties most of the time for the purposes of not being ID'ed.

If you want to play Just a Minute with me, you are on my list of good human beings.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m a student four days a week for a couple of hours at a time. Insert studently procrastination activities here, including but not limited to: borrowing UCL union because my Uni has no union bars near campus; sitting outside campus with a cigarette staring at the divorce court opposite in hope of some inspirational drama; working out whether to use a full rhyme, demi-rhyme or no rhyme; crying into my fingers two hours before a deadline then pulling something out of my pirate hat.

Other than that, I’m often to be found in a cheap cafe with a coffee and busy writing fingers, or in a cheap pub with juice and busy rolling fingers. If at home, my hands are designated cat-soothing territory and you have a huge fluffy monster to circumvent before we can play rock-paper-scissors.

I’m also half heartedly looking for a steady job as I earn my rent and pocket money through either bizarre smoking-fetish work or scowling at a camera and trying not to fall out of a tree in Hampstead Heath stark naked. Although that was just one shoot in particular, it stuck with me. Lots of anecdotes there...

Aside from that, I dance around my room doing yoga in the middle of the night. I have long, inane conversations that my conversational partner and I momentarily believe are pseudo-intellectual, and then realise the following morning they were just... well, inane. We have the 'clever' ones in daylight hours. Writing work if any interest -

I oscillate wildly between drinking gin like water and praising Mary-Jane a couple of times a week whilst writing sonnets frantically and waving my arms around enthusiastically, and going on periods of tee-total'ness and pulling an all-nighter every other night in order to write blank verse and be out the house in time to watch the sun rise from Greenwich Pier or similar places. If you want to join me for either, ahoy.
I’m really good at
Rolling cigarettes and cupboard-cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tattoos, piercings and the fact that I tend to dance more than I walk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - James Frey, Lorrie Moore, Pat Barker, Barbara Trapido, Tracy Chevalier, P. D. James, Angela Carter, Sylvia Plath, do I really have to keep listing. I like books.
Favourite movie - recently began to get more into movies after the latest attempt at getting sober. Apparently not being off my face does absolute wonders for my attention span. V for Vendetta, pretty much anything with Pegg and Frost as a two-part metaphorical comedy horse, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Wristcutters: A Love Story, The Green Mile, Withnail and I, The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears, The Prestige, But I'm a Cheerleader and similar serious spoofs (let's not forget The Plank), The Sixth Sense (ohh, Bruce Willis... So versatile), and that probably gives a good shape on my taste.
Favourite shows - House, Archer, Doctor Who, Black Books, Californication, The Mighty Boosh. I don't own a television or a working laptop right now though so this is theoretical.
Favourite artist - Belle and Sebastian, Jim Croce, God Help The Girl, Catatonia, Kirsty MacColl, Tom Waits, etc
Favourite food - eggs poached in some chopped tomato concoction that tends to involve chickpeas/lentils/similar and lots of herbs.
Six things I could never do without
A pen.
A good book.

Given that all day to day essentials such as water, food etc are not accepted socially as an answer in this box and are automatically assumed to be accessible, that's really all - I could happily exist on those three. [Tobacco counts as an essential, right?]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be more productive.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pub. Home. Elsewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you stroke my head, I immediately become almost pure cat.
You should message me if
you would like to.
The two of us
