My self-summary
I am from Glasgow but living in the West Midlands. I still have the accent, thankfully.

I am a sarcastic and dryhumoured geek. I know plenty of stories, enough for most situations. Telling them is fun.

I am a lot clumsy. I run a lot. Currently I am somewhat bearded.
What I’m doing with my life
Keeping it real. Accidentally becoming a manager, having to show responsibility and deal with lots of spreadsheets. Throwing down witty lines about people's faces or mother.

Usually I am planning some other big-backpack-type trip that will chop and change so many times before I arrange a different one as a last minute thing.
I’m really good at
Telling stories, I love a good story telling. I am good at listening and keeping track of a few conversations. Other people tell me I am good at photography. I can act really insulted which is always hilarious (for me). I freak people out by typing without looking at the keyboard and holding a conversation with them.

My friends will also insist I am good at getting injured.
The first things people usually notice about me
My flowing curly locks I suspect. Just before manical laughing and a Scottish/Scotch accent. Some people have commented on my posture being good.

When running it is that I am wearing shoes with toes on them.

A friend said I am "very sarcastic and very dry".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like Iain M Banks(mainly the Culture novels, favourite being Use of Weapons), Terry Pratchett, The Raw Shark Texts, Born to Run and Neil Gaiman. My favourite series is The Dark Tower.

Movies: True Romance, Pan's Labyrinth, Spirited Away, Fight Club, Event Horizon, Melancholia. Many things. I dig a lot of foreign films.

Music: http://www.last.fm/user/kiwiaschips
A bit of a mix. I used to listen to mainly metal, now I listen to mainly not metal.

Shows: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, Firefly, Venture Bros, Arrested Development, Daily Show, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, The League.

Food: In general, I like food. Spicy food is lovely. I can cook well, but rarely bother as it is too much effort to cook for myself. I eat a lot of veggie dishes as they taste good, vegetarians have complimented them. Just about any food plus wine. I run a lot to balance the eating of cake.
The six things I could never do without
music - I live with it everywhere, at home, running, in the car, walking the streets, in bed, on Tuesdays, dancing in the kitchen at 4am in thick socks so I slide along the floor. Music always comes first.

my Friends - These people make my life, all of them in their different shapes and faces and voices and skins. Worth more than all their flesh and blood combined in a big pot. Added bonus is they stop some of the more ridiculous things I attempt.

caffine - I will admit to being addicted to it. I am very bad at mornings.

computers - Geeeeeeeeeek. This also includes internet, as what use would an internet be without a computer to use for it? And modern computing is the internet.

A camera - I take plenty of photos. I really do mean plenty. Enjoying my EOS 50D right now.

Running shoes - I run a lot. Even if my shoes are barely there, I really like them. Getting back home with mud splattered all over them is great.

Honourable mentions go to Kindle, red wine and eye masks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next big trip.

How funny it is when I talk and use words that are Scottish.

Running routes.

The two inch rule where some men add two inches to their height, but women are aware of this. Should I add two inches to my height? If a woman sees that I have listed six foot, do they think "nah, he is five ten"? If I list six two, will it be expected I am six two or six foot?
On a typical Friday night I am
Grinning.

Gym session, meaty meal and then usually pub or playing games. I promise I will go to bed early, do not, then get up early the next morning to go running. It sometimes helps a hangover.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Some days I have ice cream for breakfast then go back to bed feeling guilty.
You should message me if
You are a borderline alcoholic who enjoys exercise, not having children and romantic walks to the pub. Sarcasm and bluntness are bonuses.
