Books - oh, far too many to count. Currently reading P.D. James and
John Le Carre, but also like Tolkein, Pratchett, and Heyer.
Movies - Some Like It Hot is my all-time favourite. Recent films
I've enjoyed include True Grit, Inception and The King's Speech. I
also like to go to the cinema fairly regularly.
Shows - I don't own a television, but I've enjoyed Mad Men, House
and Dexter when I've managed to catch them. I also like old 1960s
series like The Avengers, The Man From Uncle and Star Trek. Love
going to the theatre to watch a play, musical, opera,
Music: Favourites vary depending on my mood. If I'm happy, Buena
Vista Social Club, Sade, Jamie Cullum; if I want to get some work
done, Beethoven, Bach, Vivaldi or Magic radio; if I'm angry,
Radiohead, Rammstein or Portishead.
Food - I'm gluten intolerant, which causes me grievous anguish at
the thought of giving up bread, cakes, pasta and beer. Still, it's
given me further incentive to go out and find new recipes, and
develop a new appreciation of wines and ciders. Particular
favourites include Chinese, Indian, Italian, Greek and traditional
English. I really enjoy cooking (I can cook a mean Sunday roast and
full English breakfast) and will try anything at least once.
