I can be a little introverted sometimes, and I think I take a little time to get used to someone, and what they enjoy talking about After that, I can be quite opinionated and vocal. I'd like to think I'm best at lending a sympathetic ear, even though this sometimes requires me to bite my tongue.
I always have a lot of time to spare for my friends. I'm very much of the opinion friends are the family you get to choose. I only have a small circle of friends at the moment, but I'm always looking to expand it.
forgetting important facts
being very un-photogenic (I'm mid blink in about half the photos people take of me)
I've been reading a lot of David Webber recently (The Safehold and Honnor Harrington series)
I'm also listening to an audio book version of Glen Cook's "the black company" - its really good and the narrator really makes it click
Movies; Monty Python Movies, Enemy at the Gates, Serenity and Ghibli films, but I'm not too picky, though I don't like many horror films.
Music; I like rock music, mainly the more glam rock artists like David Bowie or Queen at the moment, but I also enjoy some of the more modern bands. I also enjoy some soul, motown and so on, and I also listen to some classical music every now and then, i particularly enjoy the Baroque style. I'm also trying to get into Jazz. I like some of it, other bits not so much.
Television; I've stoped watching much tv nowadays. Still, I love yes minister, yes prime minister, life on mars, red dwarf and Star Trek.
Something to read - I'll often find myself at an odd end without a book
Satire - I like to keep up with politics, and the things that are worth making jokes about are almost always important, so editorial cartoons and private eye are things I love
Radio - Old fashioned enough to have one, modern enough to make sure its digital. I have it on all the time, I love having music in the background.
Games - Not just computer games, I mean anything from board games to crosswords, just something that requires a little bit of thought to keep me occupied - if anyone out there wants to play go with me Im trying to learn but have no one to play with but the internet.
Internet - Sad, but true. The internet provides me with access to pretty much everything in the previous five things, music if I don't want to listen to my radio, games, political satire and lots to read. Skype also let me keep in touch with friends I cant see all that often, so I'd say its very important to me.
You have a burning passion for Jazz music and want to tell me all about it, because I know nothing but I'd really like to know more about it.
If you just want to talk with someone or you're looking to make a new friend, I could do with some more since all mine no longer seem to live round here.
Or you just want to
