My self-summary
I love to travel - it's one of the major drivers in my life right now. I want to explore more of Asia - more of Japan and China, Angkor in Cambodia, and Myanmar, along with Europe. As well as, increasingly, any damned place I can get to! My long service leave is over three years away, and I can't wait - I currently have my heart set on an 80-ish day package adventure tour from Xian to Istanbul, along the silk road.

I love surrealist and/or absurdist humour. This probably doesn't belong here, but it tells you something about me, I think. Or at least about what I laugh at. I like the Goons and Monty Python. I like Terry Pratchett's novels. I like things that make me laugh and things that make me think, whether separately or together.

I like tight, witty writing. I love broad vocabularies and good diction.

I like music. I get really excited when I meet people who enjoy the bands I do. I get even more excited when I introduce someone to a band I love and they take to it.

I am well-read, amusing, and honest.
What I’m doing with my life
Travelling. I went to Cambodia and Laos early last year, and I want to go to Vietnam this year.
I’m really good at
I've been told I'm a good listener. I maintain an open mind. I'm really not too comfortable with this question, to be honest.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short and loud. That'd be my guess!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) Anything by Pratchett or Gaiman. A Clockwork Orange. Patrick Rothfuss (<3!). Scott Lynch (More Gentleman Bastards, please!) Snow Crash was excellent. I wanted to like Cryptonomicon more than I ultimately did. Charles Stross, although Accelerando hurt my brain - I think I need to do it in one sitting to really appreciate it.

(b) Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, A Clockwork Orange, Kevin Smith's films, Monty Python's The Life of Brian and The Search for the Holy Grail. I've also really been enjoying Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Jet Li films, and other similarly fun kung fu films, lately. I don't have much time for stuff along the lines of Ong Bak - really gory and serious, but I did enjoy both Fearless and Hero, which are intensely aesthetically pleasing, without any humour, and have rather good plots.

(c) Daft Punk. The Decemberists. The Flaming Lips. Modest Mouse. Broken Social Scene. Joanna Newsom. MC Frontalot. I've been in love with lyrics - whether fun or funny or clever or thought-provoking or just well crafted - more than sounds lately.

(d) Potatoes! I love potatoes. You name it. I also like most seafood, Japanese and Thai food, and pasta. I'm 50/50 on westernised Chinese food, but I really loved the food in China. Greek food can be lovely, too, as of course can Italian. I have no familiarity with French but I'd love to change that.
Six things I could never do without
I've never liked this question. Travel, a good (or bad!) book, my friends and family, good food, a good film and free time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sometimes music. Sometimes books or film. The things I have strong opinions on - religion, sex and sexuality. Mostly, I suspect, inanity that I don't remember too well later on. I tend to mostly recall interactions with people and noteable events in my day, not what I thought about while I was driving home from work!
On a typical Friday night I am
I meet up with my gaming group on Fridays now!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find sexuality endlessly fascinating.
You should message me if
You like to travel, or want to travel, or want to talk about travel. We share a taste in film or books.

Long term, I'd love to be in a relationship with someone who I can share my travels with.
