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