Who I Am, In Picture Form

Let’s break this down, in case the banner menu across the top isn’t clear enough. This is my blog, it’s where I do most of my blogging. I also tweet, and I do that somewhere around here, I take Instagram photos that I post in this approximate vicinity, and I have a Facebook page, which tends to loiter in this general area. As for the rest of me?

Hi. I’m Felix, I’m 25, and I occasionally write things on the internet.

20120105-130639.jpg

This is a picture of me. That’s what I look like, with my face and head and legs and the various other bodily appendages that define a basic humanoid form.

IMG_2459

I’m a simple creature: proud yet majestic, like a lonesome moose, or some kind of hardworking buffalo.

IMG_2721

I sometimes wear glasses. If you’re going to say that they remind you of Harry Potter, we won’t be friends. If you’re going to say that they remind you of Rupert Giles, we definitely, definitely will be.

20120105-130745.jpg

You’d best not be fooled by how cool I occasionally look; I’m actually kind of a loser. I play guitar, as well as piano and ukulele, but you probably needn’t know that, because I only possess varying degrees of terribleness in all three.

I can often be spotted in an exceptionally stylish outfit. I know that a small brown waistcoat may not keep me safe during the long winters of the soul, but it can at least make pretty girls smile at me while I slowly rot away on the inside.

Call me lazy, but I’m shoehorning this one in here for no other reason than because it’s awesome.

20121207-181206.jpg

I occasionally like seeing stuff and looking at stuff, and even more so when I’m adorned with a thin, functionally useless in terms of keeping warm, but stylish none the less, scarf. I don’t know who ‘Pinky’ is, or why he defaced this plant.

IMG_0380-0

This is my cat. He likes siting in draws and posing. He doesn’t like seeing feet poking out of the end of a bed and insists on flaying them. I’m 6’1” and this has become a problem.

IMG_3001

This is my brother Marcus. I let him borrow my hat once, but only for a minute. It’s mine. He’s a detective in the London Metropolitan Police Service. That’s the tough one with all the drug busts and nightsticks.

20120105-125928.jpg

This is my brother Daniel. This is him begging to borrow my hat, probably. He’s an officer in the RAF Regiment. That’s the crazy one with all the yelling and the sleeping in mud.

IMG_2823

We all used to look like this, but then things started going wrong. This picture suggests that they both suspect me and the chaotic demons that dwell inside.

20140116-104255.jpg

This is my (only) friend, Charlie. He looks less like an unkempt school dinner lady in real life. We both own sunglasses and a need to make dumb faces when someone is taking a picture of us.

20140116-102948.jpg

This is my girlfriend Rebecca. She’s kind of cute. My whole family calls her ‘Disney’ and I’m pretty sure birds sing to her when no one else is around.

IMG_6061

We’ve been together for seven years. Occasionally she lets me speak; more often, she tells me to be quiet. Also, we’re crazy fashionable.

20120105-123419.jpg

I like writing stuff. One day I’ll figure out how to actually make some money off of it. Maybe. I’ll try to pop in and write you all some silly little jokes and rants and whatever other nonsensical garbage I find rattling around inside my seldom-used brain. In the meantime however, I’m busy, so as long as you keep the noise to a minimum, you’re free to take a look around. Read it, comment on it, subscribe to it, and generally enjoy all of the world-weary winging that can be found in the land of Grumpy Comments.

  26. We have two things in common – playing guitar terribly (though you look as though you probably play it quite well) and having great cats. Oh, and being grumpy sometimes. That’s three. You can read about me and my guitar and songwriting experiences by searching ‘guitar’ on my blog.

  29. Enjoyed reading and looking at your “Who I am in picture form” it’s witty, well written and concise, the best inroduction to a blog I’ve read so far. I wish you to figure out how to make money using your writing talent soon) Grumpy is a sign of lucidity, when it’s used with moderation. Good luck! ;-)

  44. Your grumpy complaints and grievances are award-worthy. That’s why I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. Feel free to check out the details of the award here http://randomdeviations.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/an-award-and-a-request/ :)

  45. Hello Felix,

    Sorry about the comment I made just a few seconds ago. The word “go” got added to the link making it null.

    I have been nominated for the ‘Sunshine Award’” by fellow blogger Thelma Cunningham.

    In turn, I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award.

    Please read my post “I have been nominated for the ‘Sunshine Award’” –

    http://tvaraj.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/i-have-been-nominated-for-the-sunshine-award/

    If you are interested, and feel that this is not gibberish, then copy the logo for posting on your site. Also I have included the instructions penned by other bloggers who have been nominated for the award before me.

    For those who do not know what a Sunshine Blog Award is (and that included me), it is a prize awarded to “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”. This is a sort of chain letter that we can never resist.

  58. Awesome about me page. I wear odd shoes too, people always come up to me and say “are you wearing odd shoes?” and I say yes and they say “good… I thought there was something wrong with my brain”. It’s a good conversation starter but only works with people who doubt their own sanity.

  59. Hi Felix,

    I have no idea why you followed me when I first started my blog a year ago, but I’m glad you did, because then I followed you, and you make me laugh on a regular basis. There are a few bloggers that come to my email in-box, and you’re one of them, so I often read your posts while I’m standing in line at the grocery store and such. Keep going, you’re funny. I’m going to put you on my blog roll. You never know, you might get a hit or two as a result of this!

    Cheers from a middle-aged Seattle mom…

  71. Your photo journaling on this page is brilliant, I really do get feel for being introduced to you. That’s very cool and very unique. I sense if you don’t mind me saying that you have an eclectic style about yourself, and that is a very easy thing for me to relate to.
    Some refer to me as eclectic and some even cal me eccentric, and I wear that with pride.
    When I was 24 we called that being a ‘Free Spirit” And it took courage, not something a loser could do.
    No disrespect meant to your own words, but II think you have courage.
    Peace ~ BB

  75. May Rebecca long tell you not to speak…if it means you’ll keep on writing. Fresh, bratty, witty, humourous – and a great respecter of cats. What more is there?

    Reply
  76. The name Felix: zesty.

    The About section: one of the top three coolest I’ve seen yet and I’m addicted to WordPress.

    The girlfriend: cute as hell. That hair should be insured by Lloyds of London.

    The style: make peace with people’s jealousy because you’ve got a long stretch of it to endure.

    The brothers: are you sure you’re related? I mean, was there DNA swabbing at any time?

    The kitty: only the most awesome people can handle cats. Those who have failed the test are given dogs until they learn enough to take the test again. The cats proctor.

    The writing: tight; book worthy. “I’ve found that while a small brown waistcoat or a jacket with elbow patches can’t keep you safe during the long winters of the soul, they can at least make pretty girls smile at you while you slowly decompose on the inside” is pretty damned good.

Also, you remind me of some of the pop stars of the 60s and 70s — back when I was growing up. Dare I even say you remind me a bit of the Beatles. :) Anyway, it’s nice to “meet” your family and your sweet girlfriend, Rebecca. I hope you make tons of money from your writing.
