My self-summary
I'm smart, funny, good looking and creative. And modest, I'm told.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a composer, I teach a couple days a week, I work with a contemporary music ensemble, and I seem to write a lot for some reason. I didn't plan that bit. Actually I don't know that I planned any of what I do.

Lived overseas twice, and only once was it a complete disaster. I have a serious case of wanderlust so I guess I'm looking for someone who's either going to cure me of it or come with me.
I’m really good at
In no particular order:
singing. pretty good.
playing showtunes at 4am
being nice without being a fucking Brady about it.
housework. especially washing up. I get way too much pleasure from washing up.
being fucking funny as balls.
sex. all respondents give me a "good" or "very good" on the compulsory exit survey.
dealing with kids.
dealing with grandmas.
adapting to unfamiliar social settings.
making friends.
writing things. not my handwriting though. that's appalling.
being organised.
stressing about being organised.
spending money. I bought a speak 'n' spell on ebay and I still don't know why. I wasn't even drunk.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have grey hair. I mean, I guess this is the first thing, since it's the first thing my hairdresser says every time she sees me (and Mandy, if you're reading this, it's not getting any less grey. You can stop commenting on it, k thanks).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Again, totally random order of things I like in the order that I think of them (there's heaps more I guess but I haven't got all day):
any food from Vegan organic lentil puffs to delicious baby seal tears are fine by me as long as it's done well.
"Secret History" by Donna Tart
"Shipping News" by E. Annie Proulx
Whatever he writes by Bill Bryson
Ditto Margaret Atwood
My nerdy author is Terry Pratchett, whom I've been reading since I was a dorky unpopular gay kid in a country town.
Music, literally anything. Like, anything. Yes, even whatever shit music you can name, I'll find a reason to like it. I think.
The Alien Movies. Actually the first one. And maybe the second one. Then it got dumb.
Theatre. I love theatre.
The six things I could never do without
Music. My family. A decent night's sleep. Exercise. The stars. A hot cup of tea first thing in the morning.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How lucky I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't even know any more. Once I would have said drinking, but now it could be anything from working to socialising to collapsing in bed to a horrible combination of all three. Plus drinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I didn't know that the puppets on Sesame Street were puppets until I was ten.
You should message me if
I don't sound like a complete asshole.

You haven't seen the Lego Movie (I haven't either and I want to watch it with someone else who hasn't).

You're actually seriously looking for a relationship. I don't care where you are in the world. It's not that big.

You have poor impulse control like I do. Or maybe not. That could be catastrophic.

Or if you were a retarded child like I was and thought that Bert and Ernie were real people.
