I am both older and younger than my chronological years. I am argumentative and passionate about what I believe in, but willing to listen — and even to sometimes change my mind — to those who disagree with me. Innately monogamous, this past week I have been dumped by one woman and have dumped another (they both knew each other; I don't lie about such things). I love Doctor Who
and Henry V
, The Trailer Park Boys
and Battlestar Galactica
, Moby Dick
and Calvin and Hobbes
I am working on the second draft of a novel and looking for a job (no, I don't have my life planned out for the next 40 years). I believe in peace, love and brotherhood but am no pacifist; left-wing, but not doctrinaire; a nerd, but not a geek.
My journal ranges from personal exploration to book reviews to political rants to political musings (most of it is public). I drink, smoke and swear. If you're female and your brain intrigues me, I'll probably flirt with you. If your brain intrigues me I'll probably suggest we go out for a pint sooner or later. If I friend you, I'll read your journal (almost) religiously; if I have something to say, I'll say it.
I am looking for new readers, new writers to read and, in the ideal world, people to meet In Life. My info page
is fairly detailed and most of my journal is open to the public.
