My self-summary
I'm looking to meet someone that's fun and funny. And intelligent. And hot. Clearly I don't ask for much.
What I’m doing with my life
A few years ago I left my job in publishing/advertising sales, and ran away to university. Now I'm all educated up and looking for a big boy job.

I train at karate, like to cycle, and I'm keen to get back into rock climbing. I also love surfing, but I don't have a car so don't get to go very often. Reading that back it makes me sound like some kind of clean-living exercise nut, so please be reassured (or warned) that I like to find a healthy balance between exercise and debauchery.
I’m really good at
Using unlikely objects to open bottles, and coining portmanteaus.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've honestly no idea, though I have been told that I'm usually heard before I'm seen.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot. I've just finished a degree in English Literature, so I'm finally able to tackle the teetering pile of books I've been to busy to read.

Musical taste is pretty varied. I'm a big fan of Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, White Stripes, King Crimson, Philip Glass, Elbow, Gorillaz, Midnight Juggernauts, Band of Skulls... the list is nearly endless. I'm currently loving Mogwai's latest, and the new Avalanches album.

I watch far, far too many films to try and pick out favourites. As for shows, I know it's pretty much obligatory but I have been loving Game of Thrones (having devoured all the books in a few weeks), and have more than a passing obsession with Archer and It's Always Sunny. Firefly also deserves a mention here, as does the timeless classic that is Garth Marenghi's Darkplace.

I love food, and have to say I'm a fantastic cook, nay, chef. Also perfectly happy with a Dominos, or some other kind of junk food which contains your calories for the week in one sitting.
The six things I could never do without
There is, of course, the Holy Trinity of alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine. Aside from that, friends, music, and apparently the Oxford comma.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How unfair it is that I don't own a castle, even a small one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working, or socialising in some capacity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sorry, but you're going to need to ply me with drinks first.
You should message me if
The information listed above hasn't put you off. Bonus points if you'd like to go on some kind of activity date.
