My self-summary
Born in the Caribbean; raised in England and Canada. Spent some pretty wild years in New York City. Got married and moved to Japan. Got divorced and stayed in Japan. Quirky sense of humour; independent. Love single malt scotch, red wine and Belgian beer. Have a lot of books -- and hope to write one someday...
What I’m doing with my life
Currently in transition. Considering (but not yet committed to) leaving Japan this summer. Possible destinations: China, Europe, Canada.
I’m really good at
making up alternative irreverent lyrics to karaoke songs.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big, almond-shaped eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Like books and short stories by Haruki Murakami, Flannery O'Connor, Dorothy Parker, David Sedaris, Will Self, Mary Gaitskill, A.M. Holmes, Jessica Mitford, J.G. Ballard. Also like science fiction/fantasy and memoir.
Movies: Like dramas, science fiction and fantasy, and action films. Preference for somewhat dark/twisted/quirky films (American Psycho, Requiem for a Dream, Donnie Darko) but also enjoy whacked out comedy (Borat, Raising Arizona).
Directors: Tarantino, Jim Jarmusch, Guy Ritchie, Wong Kar Wai, Miyazaki Hayao, Akira Kurosawa
Music: from jazz to punk
Food: Thai, Indian, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Caribbean
The six things I could never do without
family, friends, books, music, travel, nature
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
1. I've never had a driver's license but fantasize about getting a motorcycle.
2. I don't understand or have much in common with most women I meet, which makes me simultaneously sad and relieved.
3. I've seen Scarface about 30 times!
4. I think Louis Vuitton and most other branded crap is tacky as hell and I don't like diamonds -- unless it's just a big, raw unpolished hunk of rock that I can use as a paperweight.
You should message me if
a woman who is intelligent, independent, but doesn't know how to use an eye lash curler (torture device) thingie doesn't make you crap your pants.
