"It's like an alarm clock's gone off and I've just got to get away. I think it was John Lennon who said 'Life is what happens when you're making other plans.' And that's how I feel...although he also said 'I am the Walrus, I am the Egg man,' so I don't know what to believe."
-Tim Canterbury, The Office (UK)
What I’m doing with my life
Retail management is a wily game of cat and mouse.
I’m really good at
opening jars for other people...bar trivia...making the best out of bad situations...washing dishes...
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to say that they are thinking "I'm so excited that this handsome young man is talking to me." but they're probably just enjoying my rich conversational skills and witty banter...I've been told I have nice eyes and eyebrows but I think people only say that because they are grasping for compliments.
