I am gregarious, introverted and enigmatic.
converting animals into kinetic energy and ideas,
failing to distinguish between information and data (conversation),
wasting time doing online quizzes in the results of which I've nothing invested,
...(list is non-exhaustive)
TV - Star Trek (mainly TNG and Voyager), Always Sunny, Warehouse 13, Haven, IT Crowd (actually, anything with Christopher Morris in it), South Park, Peep Show, Extras, Top Gear, Monty Python (or anything funny with Pythons in it), Big Train, Happy Tree Friends, Jackass, MXC, etc.
Music - very eclectic. Recently it's been Braids, TEEN, Haerts, SVIIB, Crim3s, Chvrches and Purity Ring. Eternal favourites include Kraftwerk, Fields of the Nephilim, Radiohead, Laibach, Sisters of Mercy, British Sea Power and Red Light Company.
Books - I don't read much fiction (apart from the odd Steven Fry novel). Prefer non-fiction, particularly if it relates to my work. I really am a barrel of laughs.
However, just in case I've come across too much as a boorish oik, I'll give an example of my favourite piece of poetry from which, no doubt, you'll induce an hypothesis on my literary tastes.
There once was a limerick by me
that didn't rhyme at all.
It didn't have the two lines in the middle that are much shorter than the others.
There was no scansion.
That limerick by me.
And there was one line too many.
