My self-summary
Dear reader,

Let's see, what can I tell you ...

I was born at a very young age in the fair city of York, but have since lived in various places in Europe and beyond. I'm politically left wing, good in a crisis, and a man of gentle manners. On the minus side, I am absolutely terrible at directions, and can be disconcertingly frank!
What I’m doing with my life
The job involves lots of thinking, writing, and looking things up. (Surprisingly little reading as such).
I’m really good at
A not insignificant part of my life involves writing letters to friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my voice - not clear how or why this came about, but it sounds hopelessly posh. After that, probably that I use expansive hand gestures à la méditerranéenne.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: we all hate lists, do we not, but to give you an idea -

Foucault's Pendulum (the first half of which is the funniest book I've ever read)
Barney's Version
the Hornblower stories
My Family and Other Animals
the Alexandria Quartet
several speeches from Shakespeare.

A special place for Asterix and Tintin.

Music: mostly Classical, esp. piano.

Orange is the New Black is amazing (and personally I prefer Piper over Alex, though I am well aware the matter is not universally settled).

Watching the Mentalist was for most of its running almost a spiritual experience.
Six things I could never do without
My favourite travel-spot has to be Naples. The city, the catacombs, the Roman sites, the bay, Capri/Procida/Ischia, the palace at Caserta - ahhh ... simply glorious! Shall we go tomorrow? :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why does OkC rank me as more thrifty than average? More evil, uncouth, illiterate, strong, weak - fine! But thrifty. Hm.
On a typical Friday night I am
The unexpected claims quite a large role in my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I like you, I'll admit anything. Ask away ...
You should message me if
I'm interested in meeting great people - coffee, weekends away, wandering round the National Gallery, whatever. If that resonates with you, get in touch!
The two of us
