My self-summary
Joined OkCupid a while ago with a friend out of the comradery born of singality and a few glasses of wine, so after some mutual bullying here I am!
What I’m doing with my life
After stumbling into my first archaeological job a couple of years ago due to the need of the company to hire anyone with a degree and basic hand eye co-ordination (I lied on my cv about that part). I am still doing it. Mainly work in the city with occasional jaunts to the far reaches of the london zone system and currently still enjoying it, even though mornings are becoming more of a pain!

Currently attempting to further past hobbies that fell at the wayside due to getting easily distracted by shiny things, expanding my skeletal reference collection and attempting to draw a lot more!
I’m really good at
Procrastination, It is both a skill and a curse!
Pretending to be good at backgammon.
Preserving the illusion that I can do crosswords.
Production of wonderful looking breakfasts (see below).
Poorly punctuating sentences.
Playing many board and card games.
Perpetually beginning sentences in this section with P-words.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, I have been dubbed a giant by my short friends.
Eventually my eyes and the fact I keep two colours hidden within them (central heterochromia ftw).
If you catch me after work then I will bear and uncanny resemblance to a particularly muddy construction worker/hobo/mud butcher.

The six things I could never do without
Coffee, all the coffee!
Pens! All of the pens!
Sketch book (it gets used, sometimes!)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The complexity of anatomy, designs I'd like to draw and then forget to actually draw them, How things work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Down the pub or staggering back home tired, or both! Depends really :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a tendency to steal stationary, both consciously and subconsciously.
You should message me if
You fancy a natter, a chat, discussion on how skittles are amazing both as a food stuff and game, leading to the same over a large coffee, or alcoholic beverage. Prefer to actually meet people than converse on-line for eternity, so take the risk, What's the worst that could happen?
