My self-summary
I am a confident, outgoing, happy-go-lucky guy who lives life to the max... is not how I would start a description of myself. More like an introspective, sardonic, procrastinating geek who'd rather pick up a comic or an xbox controller than a football. Funnily enough, that doesn't get me a lot of interest. No idea why.
What I’m doing with my life
Part-time pixel-monkey, part-time looking after house, home and kids, 1950s housewife style (see? that's why the name).
Also have been known to sing bass in choirs and save the universe from Reapers (though not simultaneously). If you understand the very last part of that, we will definitely get on.
I’m really good at
Listening, hugs, making coffee, massage, naming a movie playing on TV a few seconds after walking into the room, finding less important things to do, punctuation, and I can put a whole Jaffa Cake in my mouth and remove the disc of orangey bit intact. None of these ever helped get me a job
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm a bit shy initially
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Is it not boring reading about other people's favourite books, bands, movies etc?
Yes - go to next entry
No - oh well:
Books... Big on graphic novels at the moment (yes, comics) especially Grant Morrison's Batman work. Michael Chabon's Kavalier and Clay, His Dark Materials trilogy, Ready Player One (which was written especially for me), American Gods, Readers' Digest Extraordianry Uses for Everyday Things

Movies... Oh god, such a long long list: all Coen Brothers as far as Fargo, most Woody Allen, The Chrstopher Nolan Batman trilogy, Withnail & I, Field of Dreams, Singing in the Rain, early Tim Burton, The Princess Bride, Shame, Repo Man, Tery Gilliam, Jim Jarmusch, The Marvel Avengers universe, Blues Brothers, The Tall Guy, The Matrix (not the trilogy), Grosse Point Blank... I really could go on for far too long, and maybe I have already

Music... Same again - Tom Waits, Yann Tiersen, The Bluetones, Ani Difranco, Frank Sinatra, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Lisa Gerrard, Hans Zimmerman, J.S Bach, Elvis Costello, The Spooky Men's Chorale, Belle & Sebastian, The Cure, Daniel Licht, Flight of the Conchords, Orbital, Moldy Peaches, The Correspondents... I'll stop now.
