My self-summary
Living in London, breathing air, trying to act intelligently but failing to take anything seriously.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a research charity telling people the facts about the science and using the facts to make sure evil scaremongers don't ruin people's lives with their lies (this is an overly idealistic view of my job).

Other times I walk around London investigating things and places, attempt to be intellectual/cultured, and go to some gigs and cheap comedy nights.
I’m really good at
Staying up late but bad at functioning without sleep, bit of a design flaw.
The first things people usually notice about me
The height, the curls, the height and curls.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I seem to have a constant pile by the side of my bed that never goes down. Normally a mix of fiction and sciencey nonfiction. Even though I recently joined the kindle cult. I have 3 copies of Bad Science, all were presents, feel free to borrow a copy. Anything dystopian is good. Margaret Atwood.

Movies - My small dvd collection generally gets described as "foreign and/or depressing". I do also have Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Someone once told me off for thinking that Amelie could be real life (damn it). Not massively into films but appreciate good ones.

Music - 65daysofstatic, Mogwai, Bowie, Einsturzende Neubauten, The National, Why?, PJ Harvey, Jimmy Eat World, Bjork. This could be quite a long list. To summarise: most intelligent things with guitars, some electronica, some plain old noise and random other bits. If it's "post-rock" I probably like it.
The six things I could never do without
Air, water (or coffee/tea), food, family/friends, music.

Intelligent thought and laughing at ridiculous nonsensical in-jokes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Learning every language going then hitch-hiking around the world.

How to set the social and environmental injustices of the world to right and whether I can get away with pressing snooze on the alarm again.
On a typical Friday night I am
It usually involves friends and drinks in various locations or combinations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once did hip hop karaoke and was crap (not private), but the private ambition is to one day learn the whole of OutKast's Bombs Over Baghdad (amazing song) and claw my way to hip hop glory!
You should message me if
you want to...go to a gig, see some comedy, go to a pub quiz, lose at Scrabble, see the blue whale in the natural history museum, get drunk and do hip hop karaoke, put on your red shoes and dance the blues.
