My self-summary
I'm Dan

Ok, as you probably gathered from my profile name, I'm a Vegan. So, yeah, I love animals (&, obviously I HATE plants).
My family and friends mean alot to me, and I like spending a lot of time with them - though I am happy in my own company too.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly reading, I like learning about lots of different things. I'm also working on getting my health back on track after 5+ years with Multiple Sclerosis.

Basically I'm trying to figure out what the hell I actually want to do with my life.

Any suggestions are very welcome.
I’m really good at
Pub quizzes! I'm a font of useless knowledge.
I also spend a lot of time cooking awesome Vegan food, singing along to Johnny Cash songs, guessing correctly how movies and TV shows will turn out, sketching, making a mess, forgetting stuff, always being there to listen and help when the people in my life have a problem they want to share with me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably they don't notice me at all & focus on the adorable big Collie Rott I'm usually walking with.

I've been told I have nice eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love books. I read a wide variety - some more serious, like Night by Elie Wiesel, The Ancestor's Tale by Richard Dawkins, and Feminism is for Everybody by bell hooks - some less so, like Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis, Coraline by Neil Gaiman and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and some I'm ashamed to mention! If you're interested, I keep a list on Goodreads - my target for this year is 200 books!

Movies - again, I watch a lot of different kinds of film - everything from Superhero movies, classics, drama, comedy - to many to name really!

TV - Breaking Bad (Walt is the bad guy people!), The Wire, Game of Thrones, Adventure Time. Better Call Saul.

Music - again, lots and lots of different artists (thank you Spotify [actually, now Google Music] !) - just a random(ish) few : Johnny Cash, Billy Bragg, Leonard Cohen, Bad Religion, Joni Mitchell. I saw Against Me! live last year - they are awesome; I LOVE Laura Jane Grace ;-) x
The six things I could never do without
I don't know why, but this always throws me.
Books (curse you eBay!)
Friends & Family (which includes my animal companions)

Oh, and Industrial strength pain killers!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The books I read.
Political and social issues. (I did mention I'm boring, right?)

How come we don't have hoverboards yet?
What happens if you press the big red button that says "Don't Press"?
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, reading, cooking for one (I would prefer to cook for two though ;-), listening to music and playing with Rufus (dog) and Ella (cat) and trying not to get bit by Moya (bearded dragon)!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really keep much private - if someone asks my something, I tell them.
Erm, I cry at sad movies & books. (The Iron Giant always makes me cry!)
I know WAY to much about comic book characters.
You should message me if
If you like to talk, hang out etc. I want more brilliant people in my life, and this seems a great place to meet them!
