My self-summary
I could describe myself as an adventurer. You know, the type that likes trying new things, going to strange places, and generally living somewhat of an exciting life. I even like eating things that would be considered somewhat out of the ordinary (as long as they're edible of course). That's how I discovered that vegan food isn't all that bad.

Sometimes I masquerade as an archeologist, not so much digging holes in the ground and getting all dirty type of archeologist, but going to cool places (such as Greece), and looking at what other people have dug up. It's not really a job though because nobody pays me anything to do it - that is my other job.

I'm also a bit of a literature buff; you know theatre, good movies, books, and that type of thing. Occasionally I even post my thoughts up on the internet for the world to stumble across.
What I’m doing with my life
Making the most of it.
I’m really good at
Untangling knots.
Haggling at markets to get a good discount.
Giving directions to people in a city that I have only visited twice.
Getting into places for free (legally that is).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I have a very eclectic taste in literature, ranging from Ovid to Kurt Vonnegut. I like some modernist literature such as Satre, and Hemmingway, but I also have a secret love for ancient authors such as Euripides and Homer. I am also currently rereading my Mr Men collection.

Movies: I like movies where I can get a good belly laugh (such as that offered by Tarantino and Guy Richie). I also like movies that are a little more fantastical, particularly science-fiction movies that mess with your head (such as Looper and Inception). However I am willing to give anything a go.

Shows: I managed to beat my television addiction years ago, but I do enjoy some shows such as Orphan Black, Doctor Who, and I have just am currently hanging out for the next season of Mr Robot.

Music: Anything as long as it is not country and/or western. I also don't particularly like Rap and Hip Hop, but then again I don't define that as music.

Food: I love anything containing beef, lamb, and kangaroo (no, I'm not a vegetarian), though I am always open to new things. Oh, I also have a fondness for Thai curries and burritos.
Six things I could never do without
Well, quite a lot of people are going to say friends and family, and I have a feeling that everybody is going to say Food, Water, and Oxygen (and I'll throw Salt in to make it six), so I won't include any of them.

1) Wikipedia – How else am I going to find stuff out?
2) Monet - Well, art in general.
3) Trains - Trains are cool, buses not so much.
4) Freedom of Speech – What more can I say?
5) Beef Schnitzel – My favourite meal
6) My Brother – He's cool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If a James Bond super villain were to poison our petrol supply whether the insurance company would cover the damage to our cars.

Can one consider a Hong Kong action movie a foreign film.

Hegel's Dialectic.

Is that guy who is driving the BMW able to make his monthly repayments.

Whether I could realistically swim across Sydney Harbour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once blew up the high school chemistry lab and got away with it.
You should message me if
You don't have a problem spending time looking at a painting of a woman carrying a parasol.
