My self-summary
If I could use one word to describe myself, it would probably be "Um?". If I could use more I might be a bit more eloquent. I'm an old-fashioned gentlemen, in the sense that I am considerate, polite, somewhat shy and reticent, like scintillating conversation over fine vintages of port, and also in the sense that I own several foundries in Lincolnshire, don't like going outdoors and don't know what a cow looks like when it's not covered in pepper sauce.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, trying to learn various languages.
I’m really good at
wording. I am grate at wording. No, wait...
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice - I've an unusual Anglo-Irish accent and I speak quietly, which makes people make an effort to understand me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like history, popular science and fantasy books. I'll watch anything smart and funny, and I like modern Irish music like the Frames, Lisa Hannigan, Bell X1, etc. I love Indian food, though I'm a cripplingly picky eater. I'm happy to try new things, but I tend to settle into the same kind of stuff - I re-read books constantly.
Six things I could never do without
Comfortable socks
Something to read
Something to play
Someone to talk to
The sum total of human knowledge accessible near-instantaneously

Since the last four could be replaced with "a phone", I'll do that, and fill the remaining slots with Mint Viscounts and chicken madras.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, philosophy, travel, which Avengers roster was the best. You know, deep stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the cinema, catching up with friends, or catching up on sleep - I often work early on Saturday mornings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I play computer games, more than I read or do other worthy things. I wouldn't describe myself as a "gamer", or identify with any of the associated awful cultural fallout of that term.

Also, my "Recommended for you" selection on Netflix includes the Big Bang Theory, overly-gritty police dramas, and Ru Paul's Drag Race. I have no idea what this says about my taste.
You should message me if
You would like to discuss further your keen interest in affected disinterest. Or if you have more curry than one person can reasonably eat and would like to share. Or if you've just finished The Wire and can't find anybody else who has seen it but won't judge you for not having watched it years ago.
The two of us
