'But the owls, so many owls, I'm never alone...Oh, the owls, the owls, with their feathers of silk.. the owls they mock me and have stolen my pills..'
Aspiring aesthete, belletrist, bon vivant & quasi-sophist....will admit to having man crushes on Michael Fassbender, Prof B Cox & Hugh F-W.
I am a shallow individual of extremely dubious morals & no sense of irony. Quite partial to aesthetic, Epicurean & hedonistic shenanigans, not to mention miscellaneous hi jinks. I am seeking an intelligent, attractive voluptuary with similarly dubious morals & sense of irony. If you too have a predilection for sampling the capital vices, I'd like to hear from you. Aficionados of all-round mischief-making, tom foolery & jackanapes will also be considered.
I originally grew-up in rural NSW before moving to Canberra to study journalism & ended-up working in fashion retail. I then moved to Sydney to complete my social work degree & remained there until I left for the UK early 2003. As a social worker I have mainly worked in child protection & social welfare.
I lived & worked in the UK for over 5 years. I travelled extensively throughout the UK, Italy, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Sweden & Greece. I moved to Melbourne from the UK in early 2009, & now consider myself an honorary Melburnian.
I'm intermittently gym-toned, sometimes prolix-prone, usually reflective, mostly compassionate & always idealistic. Left-leaning politically, but can experience bouts of Stalinist megalomania every now & again.
I love live music, robust conversations/banter, rustic free houses, good wines & real ales, collecting/wearing natty patterned socks, art galleries, bohemian cafes & good coffee, cooking, watching rugger, eating chocolate & kissing [reputed to be an excellent kisser]. I have supped with serving & aspiring PMs, & starred [the term is used advisedly] in a Tropfest film [with unscripted nude scene].
