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.

I recently realised that I've not read many fiction books in 2016, so I've had a binge and have tried to read one a week. So far, the trend is towards novels that are slimmer and slimmer, but recommendations are welcome.
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 narrative techniques.

Music: I'm always hopping between artists on Spotify. But maybe some Alt-J, The Books, Bowie, Bob Dylan, Low, British Sea Power, Godspeed YBE, Kate Bush, 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 also like dipping into poetry, and keep on buying the 'Poems of the decade' collection of recent poetry for friends.

- 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 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.
