My self-summary
Tall and cheeky with a pinch of sarcasm and a dash of geek.
What I’m doing with my life
Working rather too hard trying to build up enough freelance clients to quit the day job. Just moved into Reading and enjoying finding some new favourite hangouts and restaurants.
I’m really good at
Fixing technological thingamabobs, remembering incredibly random information, cooking the perfect steak, convincing people to teach me foreign swear words, teaching people to juggle badly, getting lifts home from strangers in foreign countries without getting mugged or murdered (100% success rate so far), forgetting peoples names, functioning on way too little sleep.
The first things people usually notice about me
You'd really have to be the one to tell me this surely? I would actually quite like to know, well aside from the usual "wow you're tall" as if I didn't already know that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Pratchett, Bill Bryson, George R. R. Martin, Tolkien.

Movies:
Memento, LOTR (now inclusive of the Hobbit, at least part 1), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Zatoichi, Labyrinth, Iron Sky (the best terrible film I have seen in ages!) B movie horror in general, and seriously too many more to list.

Shows:
Archer, American Dad, Robot Chicken, Walking Dead, Dexter, Spartacus, Mighty Boosh.

Music:
System of a Down, Incubus, Queens of the Stone Age, Rammstein, Jefferson Airplane, Jimmi Hendrix, mostly anything rock / metal though I will listen to pretty much anything except dubstep, well I will listen to that too with a confused and slightly disappointed look on my face.

Food:
Can't beat a good steak, sushi comes in at a close second and lastly everything is better with bacon, EVERYTHING!
The six things I could never do without
Friends.
Endorphins.
A giant and exceedingly comfy bed.
Adjectives.
Physical affection.
Parenthesis.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I miss sugary things. How to make my millions and buy my own island. What interesting place I should visit next. Where on earth all my socks keep disappearing to and what the hell did I wander into the front room to find again.....
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually having a quiet night in with some friends and a film, or off exploring for things to do near my new home (suggestions welcome).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once broke my finger in quite possibly the most stupid way ever, though you will have to ask to find out exactly how.
You should message me if
You like what you have read so far, and feel like breaking the taboo that seems to exist on initiating contact. Or don't.
