I can be rather happy, and sometimes I'm just a grumpy old bugger. My kids are grown up, and they like my company, but also laugh at me, a lot - but kids are nice like that :) I like babies, but couldn't eat a whole one. I love kids, mine and most everyone elses, but I've had enough, and just simply love it that they are grownup, and frankly want no more spawn of my loins.
I love good food, good wine, good ale, good music, good times & good company. Some say I am a great cook. I worry that the food is great if I cook, so much so that I eat buggerall then.
I have an amusing habit of only liking the people I respect - but once they have won that I tend to be fiercly loyal, to the point of stupidity!
I like bright people, but I also value folk whose intelligence is not on an IQ scale, but shines out through their commonsense and decency. Rating people is weird. Rating myself is weirder.
I value passion, it makes no difference if I think it right or wrong, passion is always impressive.
I have been all over africa, and europe, done North and South to death over the years... I do wonder if I should do East/West on my own again or with somone? See the weirdness of getting older? N/S on me own - not a thought went through me head. E/W - gawd it makes me think loads! :)
I am Obtuse, Smart, and very stupid!
cooking, ~nurd alert~ IT :)
I like film a lot, if I hate it god but do I hate it, if I love it I rave like a maniac!
Pretty eclectic about music - I loathe Hip Hop and Opera, apart from those 2 I love most every thing - From Joy Division to Joss, from ABC to ACR, from New Order to Nirvana, from Zappa to.... not keen on boy bands, or girl bands, but that isn't really music - it's reality TV, and I hate all reality TV. I watch none of it at all, but, have nothing against anyone who does.
