I was an English Literature student in undergrad - finishing a Law Masters at the moment - and I don't think anything's better than arguing the toss with people who have flair and humour. I'm really into history, politics, music, and learning the meaning of a new word (the last one I learned was "Bumptious" - if you say bumptious, you often sound quite bumptious).
I'm also crazy about the guitar - I could sit and practice for hours. My idea of heaven is one of those DVDs about improving technique. I play in an electric blues band and it's my favourite thing in the world to do!
