My self-summary
Just moved to Brighton in September, whee!

I'm weird. I have no idea what I'm doing in life, but I'm enjoying doing it. I have too many hobbies to name, most of which involve some stereotypically geeky component (fantasy, video games, anime, etc), and I write a lot, stupid, random stuff and most of it unpublishable, but hey, it's free and it keeps me entertained and (relatively) sane.

I'm quite comfortable alone, and tend to go my own way. I'm stubborn and obsessive, but generally not unreasonable and I can just about always pull away and see things objectively, even if the objective view sucks at times. I believe in honesty and kindness, and that they can co-exist.

My role model in life is Granny Weatherwax.
What I’m doing with my life
Studied law at Cambridge, somehow ended up working for a major American bank in Brussels. Am now back in England, trying to forge a career as a novelist in between temp work (I know, isn't everyone?).
I’m really good at
I'm excellent with most animals other than fish, and I can string a sentence together. That's about it. I also enjoy mindless banter, and am practicing to improve my skills in this area.

Also walking. Not sure why, I'm not actually very fit otherwise.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told I glare. People have been known to move away from me because of it. This is not on purpose.

Seriously, probably my curves. They're kind of hard to miss (and no, that's not a euphamism for fat).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Off the top of my head:

Books - authors I would read anything by: Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, Margaret Atwood, Robin Hobb

Other books/series: Jarhead, Song of Ice and Fire, Orcs, Harry Potter, Lost Souls, the Screwtape Letters

Movies: Fight Club, The Dark Knight, Donnie Darko, Spirited Away, the Bourne trilogy, Peter Jackson's King Kong, the first Pirates movie, Prince of Persia (so bad it's good!), Interview with the Vampire, Disney's Robin Hood (the one with the foxes...)

Music: Greenday, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Bon Jovi, Dido, Blondie, Boy George (with and without Culture Club), diverse cheesy boy bands, classical pieces I don't know the names of
Six things I could never do without
- Notebook
- Bottle of water (tap, mineral, sparkling, I'm not fussy!)
- The internet
- Art and beautiful things
- Animals
- Good food
- Fresh air
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether to quit my job and try to make it with nothing but a notebook and my cats.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home with a movie and some takeout/out with friends/going for a walk along the cliffs/something completely random

I kind of suck at 'typical'...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
KFC is my guilty pleasure. Shhh...
You should message me if
You actually want to meet up in person at some point (not in a year's time!). I have plenty of online friends, what I really need is more 'in person' friends.
The two of us
