My self-summary
For a start, I must be reasonably multi-faceted because thinking about this is giving me a headache. Here goes...

I'm easy going, open minded, quite deep but not too serious. I like to be stimulated so i have (and have had) numerous interests, none of which i spend an inordinate amount of time on. This has left me knowing a little about a great deal but not a great deal about anything.

I can be pretty internal but there's plenty underneath the surface. Sometimes a prod is required to break the surface tension of the bubble.

I work in metallurgy which isn't half as interesting as it sounds.

I am pragmatic, thoughtful, situationally hedonistic and tenacious
What I’m doing with my life
I attempt to take life as it comes, usually quite successfully. Work keeps me busy but i always find time to relax. I like mini adventures but need a companion to truly enjoy them. I guess this is why I'm here.
I’m really good at
Talking, listening, thinking, operating arms and legs to achieve motion. I like to cook and i'm pretty good (apart from the washing up bit - dishwasher does that). I also like to think i'm artistic, i have a vague feeling that i'm not, but don't let such piffling details stop me. So i play guitar, sculpt, sketch, scribe the odd bit of poetry and dream. Not all at the same time.
The first things people usually notice about me
One of my front teeth is gold, i guess this make me look a bit villainous when in close proximity to large globes or white persian cats, though neither as yet have given me the urge to laugh maniacally or hide nuclear weapons in the cellar. Also got a few piercings and tattoos - nothing extreme, but people seem to notice them (well, the ones you can see anyway). Also, I'm given to changing appearance as you can see above. The current look is that of of the zoo-bound lion; slightly unkempt but with a proud mane. I avoid cameras like the plague but a new photos do occasionally appear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These kind of things always degrade into lists, which I find to be highly dependent on mood at the time of writing. Therefore, and without the aid of a safety net, I shall attempt to describe my likes without citing any specific examples whatsoever. Drum roll please...

Books - I have always read. If I scan my bookshelves, there lies a potted history of my life thus far. I started with mainly fantasy, science fiction and folklore but quickly grew to love classical literature. In recent years I find myself more interested in the factual rather than the fictional, but it's mainly concerned with expanding knowledge of science and British history. However, I still maintain an (un)healthy collection of graphic novels.

Movies/TV - Anything that constitutes good cinema and quite a lot that doesn't too. I very rarely watch television channels but I do watch a great many films and will occasionally devour box sets in a couple of sittings. I guess you could say I watch with willful aforethought. For an idea of the kind of things I like, refer to the section above on books.

Music - Eclecticism is the word here (and a very good word it is too). Music is a very important part of my daily life and something I could not do without. It would be true to say that much of what I listen to is ostensibly rock orientated but I can turn my ear to most genres with one or two exceptions. For instance, mention reggae and I will look like a man sucking upon a lemon, mention manufactured pop and I will no longer be in the room.

Food - After a lifetime of omnivorous eating, I've decided to remove meat from the equation. This is entirely an ethical choice, born of an abhorrence of intensive farming methods. I've always tried to buy responsibly, but my conscience has been pricked to the point where this seemed the logical progression. I have a great love of food, so it's been an interesting prospect to alter old habits and reevaluate my epicurean ideals. I can honestly say it's a choice I have never once regretted.
Six things I could never do without
1 - Music

2 - Freedom

3 - My cats

4 - My guitar (acoustic)

5 - Contact lenses

6 - Sex (Erm, Freudian slip; I meant tea)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything. From specks of dust on an infinitesimal void, to the name of the plastic bits on the end of shoelaces (I later learned this was called an aglet; which somewhat messes up the aesthetic of the statement).
On a typical Friday night I am
Haven't got a typical Friday night: i'm not really one for routine. Quite often it's spent tunelessly trying to bring out the inner musician with or without the company of friends. Some form of alcohol is usually a feature; it is Friday after all.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't sleep with the curtains closed and i find clowns vaguely sinister: even more so as they now seem to have taken to the streets.
You should message me if
You find any of the above remotely appealing or intriguing. If you're a little alternative, geeky and vegetarian with a slightly odd sense of humour: so much the better (although these are most definitely not preclusions). I am by no means unhappy being single, in fact quite the opposite. Although, getting your own way all the time really does have limited appeal after a while...
