My self-summary
Here are some adjectives I might use to describe myself:

Here are some I wouldn't use to describe myself:
brash, assertive, aggressive, loud, insensitive.
Will that do for starters?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm kept pleasantly busy by my work and children. I still have time to do a bit of running, learn to play the congas, read a good book, water the plants, go to a gig, travel abroad, see friends and family, fill out profiles on OK Cupid (oh joy!)
I’m really good at
Not blowing my own trumpet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have most of my own hair.
I have all of my own teeth.
I could do with putting on a bit of weight.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read Hillary Mantel's Wolf Hall recently which I thoroughly enjoyed. To my surprise I also found myself really enjoying the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I thought the film adaptation was pretty good too. I gravitate towards art house/world cinema rather than Hollywood blockbusters; a favourite of mine is the Spanish supernatural thriller The Orphanage.
I don't do shows very much; I like a bit of comedy - Jo Brand, Bill Hicks etc.
I'm a bit bored of mainstream pop/rock/indie these days; the Young Knives have their moments. I used to listen to a lot of Nick Cave; he makes me laugh. The last concert I went to was a flamenco hip hop band called Ojos de Brujo. I'm listening to Classic FM as I type this.
I like to cook and eat out; Chinese, Indian, Mexican, vegetarian, all sorts.
The six things I could never do without
Okay I'm getting really bored of this now. I can do without pretty much anything except human contact, though I do have an unhealthy relationship with the BBC World Service at times.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my next holiday
On a typical Friday night I am
looking forward to the weekend with a glass of wine nearby.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a list maker.
You should message me if
you know what is good for you. Sorry! That sounds like some kind of veiled threat. Oh well, I'm tired and it is late so time to unplug from the matrix and go to bed.
