My self-summary
Rather a quick sense of humour, a passion for learning new things and generally finding stuff out. Fond of tea, conversation and a few geeky things.
What I’m doing with my life
In general: I studied Anthropology for a few years and have now ended up working in the registry of a London university. I find my evenings and weekends occupied pottering along to pubs, shows, films, plays, galleries and talks on things on my own or with friends.

In particular: Right at the end of October I saw the film Pan's Labyrinth at the cinema, which was great.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV Slightly surreal dark comedy like Rick & Morty, Chrildren's Hospital and Snuff Box. I'm a sucker for British comedy panel shows.

Films! Quite a variety, and I'm attempting to work through some of the 'classic' recent films and learning to appreciate cinema techniques.

Music: I'm always hopping between artists on Spotify. But maybe some Alt-J, The Books, Bowie, Bonnie Tyler, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Prince, Bob Dylan, Low, British Sea Power, Radiohead, The Fiery Furnaces, Godspeed YBE, Kate Bush, Philip Glass, Sufjan Stevens, Aphex Twin, Grimes and such.

I have a shitty memory for books I have read and usually flit between a few fiction and non-fiction at a time. So off the top of my head; Iain (M) Banks, Gaiman, Kazuo Ishiguro, D.Adams, Pratchett, Philip K Dick. I'm told that I ought to read the more recent Margaret Atwood books. I also like dipping into poetry, and keep on buying the 'Poems of the decade' collection of recent poetry for friends. I like Philip Larkin and Carol Ann Duffy because they are quite wistful. And concise.

Boardgames, party games, role-play games and computer games are all great.

I love the National Portrait Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts and the Prince Charles cinema. I read The Economist (for the articles, not necessarily because I absolutely agree with the politics or that I follow anything financial).

Please excuse the length (har har), but I spend a lot of time engrossed in one form of media or another.
The six things I could never do without
- Dressing gown
- Kettle
- To-do list and calendar
- Something to read
- Satchel/Man-bag
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Wait, what am I meant to be doing?"
or rather more abstractly:
"Why has that thing evolved like *that*?
On a typical Friday night I am
Going for drinks with friends, then trying to find a series of later-closing pubs in the West End that don't play music so loud that you can't chat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never really follow cooking recipes and tend to improvise.

Although I frequently go out to things around town, I have a terrible habit of sometimes just sitting in and binge-watching 'Would I lie to you?' and similar shows.
You should message me if
You've got a playful sense of humour and think it might be fun to meet up for a meal or coffee some time.
