My self-summary
Cat-loving, marathon running, Brum-dwelling, book-devouring, procrastination-afflicted, grand-high-obscure-band-and-movie-knowing, UK-dwelling long-haired ferret.

The bit about the marathons isn't true. Nor is the bit about being a ferret, because that would be strange. Come on, I wouldn't even be able to type. Still, the procrastination bit certainly is true, which is probably why I never seem to finish anything I st

I have a sense of humour best described as distinctive. I really do like way too many things that nobody else has ever heard of. I also like to write creatively, but never get round to doing as much as I want to.

I am laconic, verbose, and contradictory
What I’m doing with my life
Applying for as many jobs as I can, in the hope that one of them will eventually take. Also reading, watching obscure horror films, and going out now and then when I can afford it.
I’m really good at
Putting off until tomorrow what I could do today. Reading fast. Amassing knowledge on obscure and largely useless topics which nevertheless fascinate me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't have the faintest idea. Maybe my hair, just because there's so much of it. I think I'm mostly just good at being inconspicuous. I do tend to be rather quiet and awkward when meeting people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The trouble with listing anything like this is that I have way too many. A real list of my favourites would go on for pages. Still, I'll do what I can.

Six of my favourite books

Christopher Priest - The Glamour/Alan Garner - Red Shift/Shirley Jackson - We Have Always Lived In The Castle/John Crowley - Little, Big/John le Carre - Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy/Almost anything by Terry Pratchett

And way too many others.

Six films

Bubba Ho-tep/The Trial/Wings of Desire/A Very Long Engagement/The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp/Memento

Six bands

Blind Lemon Jefferson/Devin Townsend/Kate Bush/Luke Haines/Diamanda Galas/The Residents

Generally I'd say I prefer rock-type things, but not exclusively.

This is exactly what I mean when I say that half the stuff I like, nobody else has ever heard of.
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen, water, protein, salt, vitamins, carbohydrates. Originality is over-rated.

Failing that - the internet, alcohol, tea, curry, music, obscure and elderly computer games. All the real essentials in life, I think. A close follow-up would be books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Universe, and all that surrounds it. What my next meal will be. The book I will one day write when I get round to it. Emus.
On a typical Friday night I am
It can vary. These days, staying in watching the tv or reading a book, unless I can afford to get out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I suffer from Exploding Head Syndrome. No, really. It's a genuine medical condition.
You should message me if
You're bored. Or you like strange things too.
