My self-summary
I'm never sure what to write in these things, so I'll just try being honest:

I'm not your average bloke - I'm a tad eccentric and exist in some kind of pocket-dimension between quietly reserved and obnoxious enthusiasm, depending on who I'm with.

I like Theme Parks and going to the theatre, and there is never enough time in the week to get everything done.

I dislike people not listening to me and awkward silences, since I will just talk to fill in the gaps, but I generally prefer to be the one who says one witty thing rather than says a lot and means little.

I am improbable, awesome, and modest
What I’m doing with my life
I write comedy and science fiction in my spare time, and like most normal people, yes, I enjoy eating out at restaurants and drinks with friends.

I work as a Customer Service Manager, which basically means I get to make people happy for a living, if you consider exchanging a chipped vase the route of all happiness (which a worrying amount of people seem to). Despite my cynicism, I actually quite enjoy my job.
I’m really good at
I enjoy analysing dreams, and dream a lot. I have a dream log that dates back to when I was 15. I can literally talk for hours about dreams I've had. I'm told I'm fairly accurate with my interpretations of other people's (although how would they know?).
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes are good apparently. Some people find my intelligence intimidating. I'm constantly surprised people notice it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like jazz and 80s music, but favorite artists are Frank Zappa & Shakira. I think lyrics are more important than tune, and feeling is more important than lyrics. Unless you're Zappa, in which case lack-of-feeling is probably more important.

I watch a lot of comedy, including Family Guy, Futurama, American Dad and Qi. My favorite comedian is Bill Bailey. Somehow I found myself dragged into the phenomenon of watching Lost and 24. I loathe reality television (possible exception: the beginning of X-Factor when all the contestants are rubbish).

I like science fiction and horror movies: Sin City, The Dark Crystal, Sweeney Todd, 28 Weeks Later and pretty much anything by Miyazaki. Horror is best at the cinema.

My favorite books are 1984, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Eats, Shoots and Leaves, and Last Chance to See, and my favorite plays: King Lear, Not I, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Waiting for Godot.

Guests at my fantasy dinner party would be: Shakira, Frank Zappa, Marilyn Monroe, Bill Bailey, and Gandalf the Grey.
Six things I could never do without
I'm not going to give you six, since I'll inevitably fall into the trap of saying things like 'air', 'friends and family' and 'a computer'. Let's face it, anyone who didn't list those things would be weird.

My digital radio.


Contact lenses.

Other than that, I think I could pretty much get by.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mythology, hieroglyphs, the occult, philosophy, theology... wow - I sound weird. I'm interested by fringe religions, but I don't practise any. I'm agnostic, although teetering on Unitarian Universalism.

To be honest, when I'm not deep in thought about any of the above, I spend most of my time thinking about how to make people laugh or happier. I'll admit it's an advantage that my job requires me to do so.

I like to argue, but only over trivial things.

I don't spend much time thinking about where to go or what to do, I just like to let things evolve. Never been much for planning my day.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical *thursday* night I'm (hopefully) having dinner with friends in London.

On a typical Friday night I work late.
You should message me if
You'd like me to try to analyse a dream.

You'd like to argue with me about philosophy, theology, etc, etc.

You like Miyazaki and want to talk about his best film (clearly Nausicaa).

You *don't* consider a mended vase the route of all happiness.

You want to.
The two of us
