In all seriousness, I'm somebody who enjoys company, enjoys conversations about a range of topics and, I hope, rarely find myself without something interesting to say about those issues. (Pressures on, eh?)
Mostly, I'm enjoying the company that having good friends affords and want to get to know someone that I can share that with.
I like to think that I am fiercely loyal and will go out of my way to make sure that the best things happen for those I care about. This often leads to me being able to hold a conversation about most topics, so try me!
Ah- I tried. But sod it, just talk to me and make your own mind up as to what I'm good at.
Book would be something by Peter F Hamilton, he's a sci fi opera writer and we're talking intense geekery here!
Shows, well... not been to a huge amount of live stuff, so having just been to see Les Mis at the cinema and thoroughly appreciating it, I'm guessing that would be right up there.
Music is a wide variety of everything, to be honest I usually listen to whatever the person or people I'm with are listening to.
Food... Chorizo probably, makes everything taste a notch better.
How to manage work so that it doesn't have to affect my social life...
I'm fairly liberal, so honestly, I spend a lot of time trying to work out why people can be so wilfully intolerant of people.
