About

A gargantuan salutation to the geeky microcosm of the idiocy of this world that is Mr Watkins. I am the epitome of physical lethargy. I am the essence of applied brain-power. I am something of a manic-depressive; in my better moods I am quite mad, in my worse I am a bastard. I can range from being inconceivably narcissistic to inconsolably self-deprecating. I act often as agony aunt to friends, especially and usually regarding relationships, which, until recently, I had as much hands-on experience with as I do with professional cricket. Though I doubt professional cricket makes anyone feel quite as terrible. Suicidally bored, perhaps, but not that bad. I am opinionated and anal, but I mostly like to think not unbearable. I warmly accept the label 'geek'. It's what I am; big whup. Here's confirmation of that: GAT/C/CS/CC/ED/H/L/PA/S/SS/O d-- s+:+ a---- C++ U++ P+ L E W+++ N+++ o+ K w+ O++ M++ V PS++ PE- Y+ PGP t* 5 X++ R++ tv+++ b++++ DI+++ D+ G++ e h r !z+ 

I have been interested in acting since I was a repugnant nipper, so have continued that throughout my life. Hopefully this will provide a career. If not I shall sob copiously and resort to being sullen in print. Which is what I'm doing here.
