My self-summary
Hi, I'm Rich.

I work in exciting and crazy world of medico-legal reporting. It's so boring I literally can't think of a joke. It sucks the humour from you. Which in my case might not evenbe a bad thing, my humours terrible anyway. But it pays the mortgage, so I can't complain.

I read absolutely anything, but have a soft spot for crime/horror/fantasy/sci-fi. Those options tend to spread out across the other forms of media too. Though film-wise comedy tends to be my fave. Monty Python, and the Holy Grail, best film ever. The scene with the black knight gets me everytime.

I love writing. Short stories are my fave. A lot of people ask me what I write, so here is a link to a blog - full of very badly edited stuff that I am no longer working on :- http://thedreamsofbarddom.wordpress.com/. A couple are a little dark, was working at the crown court, and sifting through alot evidence at the time.

But I suppose that doesn't tell you much about me does it - but what I am doing?!

If I could be any magical creature I would be a unicorn...... lol I'd have loved to see your face as you read that sentence. That was a joke, wouldn't choose something so girly - I'd be a fairy!

Erm, very easy going, a little quiet and reserved but childish on times. Love wandering aimless in the sun. Weirdly tolerate of everything - stoic is the word - takes a lot to shock me. Though not a lot to puzzle me. Things like doors mystify me for hours - do you push/pull/ slide/fold.... oh no it's automatic.
What I’m doing with my life
I am spending a lot of time writing at the moment.

I have three novels on the go, which maybe a little ambitious. Especially as they are world building fantasy novels.

Actually working on a few Gestalt entities at the moment, and would love to talk to someone that knows Gestalt theory. Am pretty clueless on it, just picking it up from websites.... so a philosophy tutor is much needed.

Also saving so for my PGCE, English teacher has to be so much better than medico-legal, right?
I’m really good at
Breathing. I haven't stopped yet!

Lame humour. See above.

Crosswords, got two whole clues in a cryptic puzzle in The Financial Times once upon a time.... :) But seriously like cryptic crosswords as the clue is like a story you have to decipher.

Actually came across one of the most wonderful cryptic crossword clues ever the other day, something like 'Small vessel for soldiers to enter.' 3/3. Egg cup. So it's another reason I love cryptic clues, just showcases some of the most wonderful perspectives on the world ever.

I'm also a great listener. Awful at giving advice but can listen.

Ranting inanely.

Over complicating situation through over thinking ever. Try to apply chaos theory to everything. Doesn't work, just usually stand there mute, afraid to move, and crazily socially awkward.

Abstract doodles, my work-time pass time.

Rambling on.
The first things people usually notice about me
Before opening my mouth it is usually my eyes that get the comments. They be blue.

After I start talking to someone it is usually that I make strange faces, and flail limbs about randomly - as if I am playing the weirdest game of charades ever. Weird looks, laughs and apologise usually ensue.

I also have freakily curvy fingers. Actually hyper-mobile in all my joints. Had to see a physio once, and she assured me, my flexibility is on freakish scale.

If only I was a petite cute blonde, could have made millions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movie:- Either Princess Bride, Dark City or Monty Pythons Life of Brian. Or Mars Attacks. I also love the Bill and Ted movies. Goonies.

Book:- Too hard to choose. Dark House by King is good although the Stand has to be his best.. Name of the Wind, by Rothfuss. Nueromancer by Gibson. Life of Pi. Anything by Lovecraft/Pratchett/Giamen/Melville/Gemmel/Moorcock/Asimov/Dick
Am actually doing my dissertation on Terry Pratchett.... so he gets too mentions.
Erm, Robert E Howard's Conan Shorts, The Amber Chronicles by Zealanly, Portrait of Dorian Grey, Dracula, Frankenstein. Oh Shelley, Keats, Byron, Coleridge and Wordsworth. Have to love the romantics. And Tennyson... and Yeats. Quite fond of Shakerspeare - though thats more play.....
Yeah, I read too much.

Shows:- Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Supernatural, Documentaries, Being Human, Game of Thrones, Castle, NCIS, Blake's 7, Revolution, In The Flesh. And the channel known as Dave - tis on almost constantly in my flat. :) Sucker for topical (well was once topical) panel quizzy comedy shows. Comdey shows too. Russell Howard... ect.

Music: The Postal Service, Super Furry Animals, The Manics, Tom McCrae, The Brakes, Weezer, Pavement, Beck, Bowie. Wolfmother, Airbourne, Silver Chair.

Food. My fave would be Italian or Cake. Its a hard choice. I also like indian, and chinese. Thai is okay. Tapas is also cool....... I just like food.
The six things I could never do without
An oxygen/nitrogen atmosphere..... I do breathing jokes a lot don't I?

Dunno, a pen, a blank piece of paper.
My freedom maybe, think thats important for everyone.
Something to do.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I tend to think about everything a lot. I am slow so it takes a while for me to figure things out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Until very recently I was in work...... how much does that answer suck?!

Now its usually tea, candle, sofa and book time! I am getting soooo old.
You should message me if
You want to ramble inane about the lizard man invasion. its best to find these thing out before the first date, getting too old to climb through windows. Actually tried to scale a sewage and walk across it the other morning, as I was late for work. Fell face first into a patch of nettles, whilst manage to rip a great hole in the crotch of my trousers. Mr Bean impressions so should of gone in my good at list.

You just want to ramble insanely on about nothing, or imaginary stuff, that has no real worth at all.

So of the bat conversations I have had, has revolved around tap dancing care bears of doom, stealing people's picnic hampers to summon their evil overlord from the nether realms.

I am just saying I am not on here on a narrow minded quest for the one and true love of my life, I am looking to chat, expand my horizons a little. Get to know people. So if you don't mind if I am not in a hurry to date you or anything. Will chat to anyone, can never have too many friends. But what will happen will happen, not forcing anything. If I find it, definitely a bonus.

You can stand the bad humour.

You need a chess/Gin Rummy partner.

If you want to tell me what fruit you be, and the reason why you would be that fruit?
