Pottering about - I always find something to do.
Research - restaurants, bars, holidays, work - I like to have a dig around throw options out there. Generally, I'm not the sort of person that responds to" what do you fancy doing" and I say "I don't know;" It's always great to have something to look forward to.
Stumbling across places where there's free bubbles and canapes... it just seems to happen. Even an Ambassadors reception and no, not a Ferrero Rocher in sight. Non excellenté.
I'm a very warm, kind-hearted person -even if I am judged to be cold from afar. Probably a London thing: no eye-contact/head down... has held me in pretty good stead as there are quite a few nutters flitting about. It always means I'm pleasantly surprised. This state of affairs has no bearing on me being single whatsoever! Ahem.
Love Japanese and SE Asian Food.
Films:The Big Lebowski, Sound of Music, The Odd Couple, Man for all Seasons, In Bruges,Where Eagles Dare, Rebecca - if I had my time again I would be calling myself "Broadsword calling Danny Boy."
Shows: NO SOAPS whatsoever; Flight of the Conchords, IT Crowd, Pulling, 6 Feet, Sopranos, QI, Lost, Mad Men, Battlestar Gallactica. Prefer box sets/ on demand, to being tied to TV at particular times
A smattering of Documentaries/ Nature, Science, Space and the human condition - Politics and news a close 2nd - some crap TV now and again to see how low it has actually got & then moan about it like some old curmudgeon!
Music: well I'm still transferring all of my CDs to iPod that's how broad it is; Goldfrapp; Depeche Mode; Classical /Choral Music; Radiohead, Babs, Kate Bush, John Barry (Midnight Cowboy/ 007 theme fame), Electronica, new wave/ indie, dance. Easier to say I don't like what they call R&B now, country, bar Jolene of course).
Books: Brideshead Revisited; A Fine Balance - reading Madame Bovary at the moment after a couple of recommendations. I enjoy sitting around reading the Sunday papers.
2. A good bed (esp. cotton sheets with cold patches in the summer - small pleasures)
3. Not sure if anyone has mentioned meeting up with family and friends
4. Music (and quite partial to cutting the rug up)
5. Animals and nature, walks
6. Laughing at the ridiculous.
Whether or not I should go to the gym tonight or tomorrow
Humanity and world poverty -seriously - its what makes me feel gulity about thinking about stuff and nonsense.
Ok a snippet - I took 3 wine tasting courses so everyone thinks I'm an expert on wine or an wine snob - I am neither.
Can still afford a 1st class stamp;
Get cultural references to the 80s
Don't: lie about your height/age here; wear necklaces/ man bracelets; think indoor, shirtless photos of yourself or just your motorbike is a way to a woman's heart. Your hair is natural (even naturally bald!)....spikey hair on any man over 35 is just wrong! The Chuckle Brothers look has no appeal.
Think I haven't completely blown it here? ("Ere Dad, I fink I got it wrong again." Ok the odd 70s cultural reference too).
You're genuine, like conversation and are good company.
