My self-summary
Geeky, arty, foodie with a penchant for dark, absurdist, self deprecating humour seeks similar girl to form a two person think tank to determine who would win in a fight; Han Solo (captain of the Millennium Falcon) or Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (captain of Serenity "Firefly-class"). This working group could meet at local bars, restaurants or cantinas to establish which is the best fictional inter-planetary smuggler with a heart of gold.
What I’m doing with my life
For the last year I have been working in a butcher. This has meant learning a lot of new skills and uncovering ones I didn't know I had. (Oh dear it feels like this sentence has been copied directly from my CV). Any way it turns out I am quite good at flirting with old grannies and convincing them to buy a little bit more than a half pound of mince.
I’m really good at
I can cook. Given my profession it is kind of essential. Dishes of note are: Tuna Carpaccio, green Thai curry, roast venison with chocolate gravy (better than it sounds) and not to blow my own trumpet but my home-made hummus is like crack cocaine made from chickpeas. Also good at Juxtaposing. Placing two things together so they become more than the some of their parts and force an interesting dialogue between both objects. Sometimes I draw these things and call it art. What els hmmm well let's be honest. Procrastinating

On a typical Friday night I am
Although it is very rarely Friday night, as I don't have the typical 9-to-5, I spend free evenings with friends doing the usual things that people do.
The two of us
