Secondly, about myself...Most people find me odd, sometimes random and sometimes shy. Depends on the person. I am odd, I recognise it and embrace it, because everyone's odd in different ways. It's too long to describe why here, but it's just an overall thing, a combination of everything. I also like to be random, which stems from my love of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Shy, well, I don't love that, but it's something I'd have to deal with in a place like this. Although not really in this place, because this is online and that's mostly okay. It's if I were to meet any of you, being shy becomes a hassle at that point.
I like to think of myself as thoughtful, humourous, and odd.
Beyond that, I just do what I can to pass the time. Whether it's seeing friends, reading books, playing video games or playing/watching sports...just whatever I feel like that I can do at the time. I take a lot of walks and have started taking pictures of creatures (mostly birds) that I see on those walks.
I think I would say my blue eyes, as many tell me they are rather nice... Although it does appear as though more and more people like my nose, so maybe that's the first thing they notice. I don't know why they like it, but hey, I'm not going to complain.
Movies vary, as I like all sorts of ranges...It more depends on quality than type. Some of my favourites include The Rocket, the Prestige, The Bank Job, Lord of War, and Layer Cake. I rather like the Guy Ritchie style of movies such as Rocknrolla, as well as more challenging movies like Moon or Agora.
TV shows may not be mentioned, but I'd have to mention Top Gear, Doctor Who, Broadchurch, Luther, and panel shows like the Big Fat Quiz (the British can be wonderful), as well as some North American things like House (although Hugh Laurie is a Brit, so maybe that doesn't count as North American?), and the old, but still great, M*A*S*H. More recent shows like Game of Thrones, the Expanse, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and iZombie are also good. Plus low budget Canadian sci-fi (Dark Matter and Killjoys), and I try to watch anything with Robert Carlyle in it.
But ya, things that are very important to me...hmmm...Computer comes to mind...but I'm not sure if there's much else. Books could be replaced by renewing my library card...Hmm, okay, I'll go with:
-Blueberries (and a freezer to keep them in)
-Milk + Cereal (the only thing I can eat in the morning, and I can't function without breakfast).
I'm politically rather left wing; I identify as something of a socialist, believing that everyone is equal (and we need to work to ensure that, because obviously some groups are more privileged than others), and that we need a strong state heavily involved in industry (fuck privatization). I do not, however, ascribe to any particular theory. I am not a Marxist, Leninist, Maoist, Trotskiest, etc etc. I do rather like Gramsci though, because he was an interesting guy and his theories regarding hegemony were fantastic.
Okay, another thing I spend a lot of time thinking about is how do people get this question wrong?
"STALE is to STEAL as 89475 is to..."
Look, STALE = 89475. Thus S is 8, T=9, A=4, L=7, and E=5. So STEAL is 89547 (S8, T9, E5, A4, L7). I always see people with this wrong, and it baffles me. You are clearly smart, and yet you get that wrong? How? Why? I mean, all else fails, just google it?
Essentially, I have no clue. I like to ramble online, so if you're willing to listen to me ramble, that'd be good.
Beyond that, who even knows.
