My self-summary
Hello. My name is Michael and I like music and books and sitting around thinking about stuff and drinking tea and talking to cats and playing the guitar. Probably some other stuff too, I forget.
What I’m doing with my life
Brief summary of my life so far: went to school, did some A-Levels, went to Oxford, dropped out, played guitar in a band for a couple of years, worked at a crazy golf course, went back to uni (Salford), did a degree in French and Spanish and translation and stuff. Spent much of 2011-12 in Madrid and Paris, which was nice.
Then worked in a supermarket for a bit, then left. Now I have a nice boring job in the civil service. Good times.
What else...I like to run, I've done a couple of marathons and 10ks and stuff. I like making music and reading and food and all that good stuff. But that's enough about me, how are you?
I’m really good at
Wasting time, drinking tea, umm...that's probably about it. I'm terribly modest, wouldn't want to brag about anything...
The first things people usually notice about me
Sometimes I have a beard. Sometimes I have glasses. Sometimes I have neither. Sometimes my hair is long and sometimes it's short. I like to keep people on their toes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A random bunch of stuff I like, off the top of my head...

García Márquez, Dostoevsky, Tolkein, Orwell, Pulp Fiction, It's A Wonderful Life, Withnail & I, A Serious Man, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, I'm Alan Partridge, Breaking Bad, Radiohead, Kate Bush, Idlewild, Bob Dylan, spag bol, fish, bananas, ice cream.
Six things I could never do without
My guitar(s)
Books and films and stuff
My family
My friends

(please don't tell my family and friends I put them below booze in this list - I really haven't thought this through...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who has the stronger body of work - Taylor Swift or Carly Rae Jepsen. I remain undecided.
On a typical Friday night I am
Down the pub with my friends, at a gig or something, sitting at home on my own messing about on the computer, eating pizza, having a big crazy night out...anything, depends on my mood and what's going on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My middle name is Benjamin. Get to know me a bit better and maybe I'll tell you some slightly more interesting stuff :-)
You should message me if
You're a lovely person who might be interested in having someone with whom to sit around drinking tea and talking bollocks.
The two of us
