You: whatever man, I'm not going to tell you how to be. Being smart and funny would probably be a bonus though.
I like the theatre, art galleries, cinema, museums (especially weird little ones,) aquariums and wildlife reserves, but I don't go out nearly as often as I'd like to. I prefer pubs and cafes to clubs, but I do like a good dance - even though I'm terrible at it!
- Remembering the useless stuff I've researched - like the cognitive capacity of crows, or why cold water is denser than ice, or the etymology of the word cappucino - while forgetting peoples' names and birthdays.
- Cooking (well, quite good. I wouldn't say I'm a master but I at least know the arcane art of making tasty stuff out of whatever I have to hand.)
- Chatting nonsense.

...I don't have very consistent taste in music, I'm afraid. Or films, or books.
- The internet
- Genuinely good coffee
- Great food
- A decent pair of boots.
Also I really fucking love birds.
You like a good laugh.
Also if you'd like to go out for a chill drink/coffee sometime.
* Like bad films and weird fan-art, not like, the Holocaust or whatever.
