My self-summary
I'm a just-turned-thirty, faintly disillusioned, cheerfully pessimistic, recovering indie kid. I spend far too much of my disposable income on books and music and have minor pretentiousness issues. A bit too loud, and a little lacking in tact as well. Probably a socialist by most people's standards and an avowedly weak atheist, but have long gone off the idea of converting people to either religion. OK Cupid seems to think I'm not geeky, but I suspect its definition of geeky is not the same as mine.

I am grumpy, enthusiastic, and overanalytical
What I’m doing with my life
Worrying about things.
I’m really good at
Procrastination. Putting IKEA furniture together. Talking bollocks. Map reading.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I've got a big mouth on me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Everything You Need, Mason And Dixon, Life: A User's Manual, Finn Family Moomnintroll, The Earthsea Trilogy, Perdido Street Station.

Films: I don't really do films as such but Shaolin Soccer recently reduced me to a giggling mess.

Music: micro/electrohouse, old arty indie nonsense, post-metal, mainstream pop, folk. Superpitcher/Throwing Muses/Isis/Rachel Stevens/Steeleye Span.

Foods: cheese, whisky, proper beer, lentils, really good white crusty bread, pork pies, curry, cake, Tunnocks Caramel Wafers.
Six things I could never do without
Open spaces, cities, hearing, literacy, a good pair of shoes and some way of getting out of myself.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recently: London, love/romance/teenagerishness/being not-young anymore, dancing, what it means to be a fan.
On a typical Friday night I am
In the pub, laughing at the drunk people. Or flaked out at home with a book. Or playing Scrabble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once danced to Baxendale for a whole 30 seconds. I'm also much more of cultural snob than I admit to people's faces.
You should message me if
You don't mind if I message you back.
