Male, 29, London, overly self aware, pseudo intelligent, densely ironic,

My Listography Philosophy (rhymes)- I create lists which I myself want to see in other people's listography. I also like lists which detail the emotion, feelings, thoughts and experiences of someone rather than the tangible for it is what goes on in our head which makes truly unique.

  • Picking up new slang - which is then used in conversation and freaks people out
  • going into London and walking around an area where I have never been
  • Going supermarket shopping with the family - we usually start hitting each other with stuff of the shelf or do a bob-sleigh hanging off the sides or ram the trolley into something while someone stands on the end or close the door on someone whilst they're getting something in the freezer or have a race through the busiest parts or get two chairs which the cashiers use and have races or stack cans in massive pyramids. we now have been taking to randomly pushing each other then one person yells something like 'lets take this outside' or 'dont turn this into a scene' and we storm off in a huff, not actually intending to fight, but making it seem so.
  • going to giant hardware shops and riding on trolleys which you can load stuff into.and getting in the baths in bathroom models. and do a whole setup where we have one of us hide in a shower lure another to the area and make them open it or just plain jump out in them.

  • playing games we just made up or being spontaneously being challenged to do something and competing - my favourite is tap race - in the science labs there would be water taps between desks and from them there were two taps. the aim was to see who could get their's to drip the fastest without making a constant stream. A game I first played with my crush.
