About Me


The phonetic alphabet for 'F' is not Tango!


I am not in San Francisco. I am in Saint-Petersburg, unless my location says something else.
I am not in Kaliningradskaya oblast either.

Social sugar-eater, occasional bed-slugger (If I might put it this way) and I like it when native English speakers omit articles :). I am also a vegetarian.

...And I've just realised that I love beeing, thanks to a hint unconsciously given by someone. In no case should it be confused with bumble-beeing!


My philosophy is not personal but societal.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By participating, quite obviously :).


A little bit irreciprocal - mostly surfing so far - quite a bit of 'coffee or a drink' - overall positive only!


Languages, cultures, travelling, mixture of all the three in random proportions, learning something new, religions in their glory and infamy, future and past, music, How Come This Is Here And Not There And What Can Be Done About It, writing - writing anything, often I just feel like writing, and life as such. But these are my favourites.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Placebo; Tricky, Radiohead, Muse, She Wants Revenge, Iggy Pop, RHCP, Depeche Mode, The Dead Weather, Nick Cave, ... and lots of others. I'd actually put Tricky forward, as he continually amazes me with his unexpressible talent.

What's to books, the ones I like vary widely but I can undoubtfully can name few people whose masterpieces influeced me a lot and that would be Terry Pratchett and Kurt Vonneghut - I personally call them the great humanists, wish people like them lived forever

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Remnants of the Waitaha people.
Risotto with prawns...yummy!

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn: mmm, truths sound nice, but they are better learnt by oneself, untruths would be good then!
...Now for that matter my interests embrace everything embraceable ;).
Share: thoughts and things, mood and food, ...living space and livelihood!

Countries I’ve Lived In
