My self-summary
I can tell already -- you're sick of the same meatheads and mimbos. Guys that have trouble with polysyllabic words, who list their biceps as their greatest asset after their ute, and who drift aimlessly through life. Rest assured, you've found something a little bit different.

Much has changed since this was last revised. I've lived the best part of 2 years in a town that prides itself on its beef and its ever-expanding waistlines. I have just 6 days left here before I trundle back to Brisbane for good, in order to plant some new roots, and pick up from where I left off. And while I'm keen to reconnect with long-lost friends, there's a new opportunity for big adventures in the big smoke, and for meeting new folk along the way.

But even intrepid explorers need to recharge sometimes. Perhaps with a cool Sunday brunch, warmed by the sunlight through the window of a cafe. Or a picnic by the river on a warm summer's afternoon with a big group of friends and the inevitable guitar. But we can't sit for too long, because there's so many more places for us to go, people for us to meet, and things for us to see and do!

You can read the rest of my profile here, but there's really just one way to find out more about me -- send me a message! There's no rule saying you're not allowed to, you know...
What I’m doing with my life
I can confirm that the rumors are true -- I'm a member of the university's frequent learner's program (which entitles you to free upgrades to the business-class seats in the lecture theatre), though not from any lack of decision or enthusiasm. Instead, I'm rapidly approaching the end of a well thought-out plan.

Next comes something called "the real world". Lots of people seem to manage fine. And then I get to catch the ones that don't. Thankfully, it doesn't start until January, leaving an entire silly season to ignore it and its responsibilities.
I’m really good at
Making up words. Having grand ideas. I also make a fantastic vanilla slice (my icing needs work, though). Harmonizing. Guessing the next line in movies.
The first things people usually notice about me
It could be that I'm always smiling or laughing.

What will you notice first?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: Of novels, Huxley's Brave New World might be close to the top (need to explore some of his other works too). I did eventually manage to read some of Edward Tufte, and was somewhat disappointed. His last book ended with pages upon pages of ads for his own sculptures. Looking forward to putting down the non-fiction in a while and starting on the growing pile of christmas present books I've been accumulating over the years.

Films: Young Einstein, The Life Aquatic and many more. I'm not at all interested in horror/thrillers though. And truth be told, I find it a little difficult to sit through an entire movie these days. Perhaps I just need some incentive.

TV: Scrubs, Arrested Development, Dexter (my one exception to the thriller rule). I talk back to reality TV, so if you're a fan, best to ban me from TV time.

Music: Classical, alternative, and just about anything in between. Nothing popular though, particularly the "latest female pop sensation". See:

Foods: A crispy wood-fired pizza, a great pasta, a Chinese banquet, or even a burger-with-the-lot from a fish and chip shop. Slowly expanding my cooking avenues.
Six things I could never do without
Laughter, giggles and occasionally sniggering when perhaps I shouldn't
Great friends
A challenge
A way to help people
Exquisite food (including strawberry milkshakes)
My drafting pencils
On a typical Friday night I am
When I'm with good company, the options are truly limitless. From Florsheim's for the theatre, to huties for the sofa, a quiet meal to a noise groove, and anything in between.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My imaginary friend's name was Charlie Dickson. His father built Disneyland.
You should message me if
you think it's about time I was distracted by a new email.

Please think before you "Wink". Those electrons could be better used writing a real message.
The two of us
