|Location||San Francisco, California, United States|
|Introduction||I'm a progressive, left-wing Brit living in California. I used to be a high-tech sales guru, but got tired of that and am now thinking about going back to school to get a Masters in Journalism. My undergrad is in Psychology, but I have never used this in any constructive way. This is typical for me. I grew up mostly in the Middle East, was educated at a very fancy Scottish boarding school, moved to London at 18, and have lived in the Bay Area for the past 8 years. I am now suffering from a serious case of itchy feet, and am feeling that 8 years is quite long enough to stay in one place. Again, this is typical. If anyone really wants to figure me out they should Google "third culture" - I fit the prototype pretty closely. If any other Third Culture kids happen to stumble across this blog, write to me. There aren't very many of us.|
|Interests||Literature, from sci-fi to Shakespeare to horror to the Russian Absurdists. Right now I'm particularly partial to Terry Pratchett, Victor Pelevin and Ian Banks.|
|Favorite Movies||The Big Lebowski, Hellraiser, Farewell My Concubine, Rouge, Tetsuo|
|Favorite Music||Indie, punk|
|Favorite Books||Far too many to list|
If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying "poop deck"?
Why not laugh?
