I live by two mottos: know thyself and seize the day.
As you might have guessed "Rollo Stanley" is a combination of two things: the name of my first dog as a kid growing up and the name of the street that I grew up on. And no, I don't moonlight as one of those kinds of "actors" in my spare time.
Been digging Glebe since about mid this year. Have tried other 'burbs (and inner city) but really like the eclectic crowd and the hip, hip coffee shops and small bars, especially a more relaxed vibe at times.
I'm bit of a foodie and wino, but I don't go on about the subtle notes of blah, blah. The appreciation of such pleasures came with growing up in Adelaide and having ready access to great wine and cheeses.
I'm a big reader. I have been since my early twenties when I studied a BA. I'm big on the classics, history, biographies, philosophy, and art, and all that kind of stuff. I have been labeled 'well read' and 'cultured' in the past but I'm more about the simple life now.
Music! Love it. Eclectic taste but I particularly enjoy hopping on the D-Floor and doing some damage and enjoying the music with my body. I also have a few friends who play in bands and I enjoy getting out and seeing live music too.
I'm keen on exercising regularly and running around my local park. It's a great way to tune out and think (or not think) about stuff, even though some people find running around in circles boring! Add to that the fact that I'm also a big walker. "Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time".
I work as a solicitor and I also do pro bono work down at Kings Cross so I've also got something of a social conscience too. I love analyzing the law and coming up with solutions to problems. I'm looking forward to being a barrister, making arguments in court and challenging the rules where they should be challenged.

What I'm looking for
I'd like a woman who knows how to laugh and get on that wave length where only we two know just how funny our own jokes actually are, whilst the rest of the world looks at us in total bemusement. But we just don't care, because we're having too much fun to care what the world thinks about us.
