About me

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?
