My self-summary
For what it's worth, I'm not taking this particularly seriously. Happy to maybe date and get to know people and whatever happens can happen.
(I think OKC's hidden like function to be stupid - "What's the point? You can't see anyone")

All of this information below this is basically out of date.
If any of it reads like it's missing something, it's because it was probably deleted after rereading and thinking that the cringe levels went up.

I am open to conversing with people who are interesting and like to talk.

I love conversation. I think the best way to get to know someone. The moments when you get on a bus or a train and ask a random stranger what the time is, then it all clicks and you talk for half an hour about the silliest things.
Random chat and banter, anything to make you smile really and give you that warm feeling inside.

People seem to appreciate me for being me. I'm never too sure why and I don't think they can explain it either.
Enjoy coffee but attempting to cut down unsuccessfully. Favourite little coffee places like T'chai Ovna in the West End.
What I’m doing with my life
Aiming for happiness and trying to not mess up my zen.

- I've learnt to bake this year. I'm going to try making cookies this year - this has been accomplished
- I enjoy learning new things and improving myself and want to take dance classes this year because everyone in clubs dance terrible and that "wedding shuffle" dance that people do gets me irate (not that you can complain about that at a wedding...)
- I want to learn to cook a good macaroni cheese [edit] I am in the process of improving a macaroni cheese! I feel like it's not cheesy enough but I feel like I'm using a lot of cheese... [further edits] This endeavour has proven to be reasonably successful. My secret was to add even more cheese.
I’m really good at
I make a mean omelette.
Not getting subtle hints.
Being mean when not trying to be.
Organising people, long trips, holidays.
Card games.
Using 50 words to explain something when I could just use 4 instead.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look younger than I am
I like dorky stuff

I have a Scottish accent with some Americanisms. This tends to varies from person to person. People say different things depending on what accents they are used to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Back to the Future, Serenity, Stardust, Empire Records, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Morning Glory, The Notebook! (yeah!), 10 things I hate about you, Tangled, Definitely Maybe, Star Wars, About a Boy,

My favourite book is Yes Man by Danny Wallace (life changing)

Radio 6, Blur, Rilo Kiley, She and Him, The Goo Goo Dolls
Right now listening to Kyla La Grange.

I really liked watching Pushing Daisies when it was on. It was whimsical, bright and sunny. Almost sickly but it got me in the mood for smiling. It was like instant-formula for happy moments.

Community is (edit: was) one of the best things on TV just now and the first few seasons of How I met your mother were magical... shame the newer ones are not. Currently making my way through Modern Family.
I have discovered 30 Rock. Great show. Liz Lemons please get in contact.

Food brings so much comforts and warming thoughts. Macaroni cheese, home-made baked goods (fresh from the oven warm!), omelettes.
Recently made chicken fried pork chops in honey garlic (serves 2-3, add rice!). I also don't know why it's called that as there's no chickens involved...
The six things I could never do without
Coffee
Music
The need to relieve my angry side by ranting about silly things constantly to whoever is in earshot.
Dreams/aspirations
A sense of accomplishment
Laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My place in this crazy world
I like to read and learn about attaining happiness and the things you can do to make that happen
Affairs of the heart and what it all means
What I'm going to eat next
Where my time went
Card games
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm out I sometimes wish I was in.
If I'm in I tend to wish I was out.

Occasionally gallivanting around the country trying to win trips to countries far, far away.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is this not an oxymoron?
I can put both legs behind my head I guess. That's not very 'private' though.
I'm not especially worried about dying as much as I'm concerned about what happens after death.
It feels similar to the question of "if a tree falls in the woods but no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?"
You should message me if
You like to talk.
You liked reading my profile.
You want to complain about something!
You think we'd get along.
