I've realised that I've finally hit the age where I can't drink as much as I used to, function on 6 hours of sleep a night or work through a hangover anymore. These days I actually prefer the idea of staying in and watching a film over crazy mad nights out on the town. That said, I still try to do it every once in a while, just to remind myself that I can't drink like I used to or deal with the hangovers anymore.
I enjoy cooking but hate cooking for one so on the rare occasion that I do cook it's normally an event to behold. I have to clean the kitchen fully before I start and then once that's done I've normally lost enthusiasm and so just stick a pizza in the oven instead. Some people consider me to be an alright cook whilst others have actually tasted my cooking :)
I'm sure there's a lot more I could say here, like
I think that I'm very open minded but I still can't see the point of football or golf, I like all kinds of music provided it has a tune and I've even been known to read a book every now and then.
Well, enough for now, drop me a line and I'm sure I can find some random film quote to send to you and if you're really lucky, I may even come up with a witty and intelligent reply as well!
I'm supposedly a computer programmer (well that's what it says on my contract) which I've done for the last 10 years or so but previous to that I was a research fellow researching robot mediated therapy (multi-finger haptic rendering to be precise).
The rest of the time I'm trying to decide what new experiences to go out and have. I'm determined to do things differently this time and not spend all my time either working, sleeping or watching tv. I've made it as far as moving country, now I need to work out how to live it in this new place..
Cleaning the Kitchen when I plan to cook.
Making a mess in the kitchen when I'm cooking.
Sleeping in on the weekends (although I'm not quite as good as this as I used to be).
Convincing the people I work with that I'm actually really good at my job (it helps that nobody else understands what I actually do) (ok, not been in my job long enough to know if this is still the case).
Apparently, I'm also pretty good with computers (although it's not something that I admit to in public)
Favourite movies? Easy, the ones with easy to understand story lines and lots of big explosions! Typical hollywood trash really. That said, La Vita e Bella is one of my favourtie movies.
Favourite music? Either Jazz (Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong or pretty much anything else from that era) or Orchestral (both the Classical (e.g. Beethoven) to the modern (David Arnold and other film score composers)), depending on what mood I'm in when I wake up.
Favourite food? If I'm cooking then anything that I can put in the oven and forget about although I have recently fallen in love with Tacos. If I'm not cooking then probably would have to say either Italian or Chinese.
A decent cooker (well decent oven at least) (I don't have a decent cooker (or kitchen) where I am now and I've been suffering)
A decent bar of soap (you'll be surprised how hard it is to find a decent bar of soap these days!)
Toothpaste and a toothbrush.
My computer and the internet (well how else will I get to chat to all you lovely people?)
I used to have Coca Cola on here but I've finally managed to stop drinking it and now I just find it's really sweet and syrupy.
Why there are so few decent pictures of me.
How to fix the problem I've been having at work.
What I'm going to have for dinner.
