Books: Last read: Wampeters, Foma and Granfalloons, Kurt Vonnegut
Jr; Grandville trilogy, Bryan Talbot; The Collapsium, Wil McCarthy;
Seraphina, Rachel Hartman. Love Christopher Priest
Alice Through the Looking Glass (fascinated young Bug a lot more
than Alice In Wonderland). Own a lot of Pratchett. I like science

half a dozen boxes of comics still.
Movies: Last seen: Hugo, Mulholland Drive, Robot & Frank, Gran
Torino, Bad Lieutenant, We Need to Talk About Kevin. Love Brazil
, Requiem for a Dream,
Moon, Inception, Some Like It Hot. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are
Dead Good, so is the Cambridge Film Festival.
, Battlestar Galactica, The
Wire, Firefly. More Futurama. More films than tv, usually.
Music: Last purchased: Florence and the Machine, Lady Gaga,
Emiliana Torrini, Slow Club. Listen incessantly to Torrini, Eels,
Supergrass. Like to dance but don't do it often. Only barely play
viola. Am better at recorder.
Food: I like dark chocolate, fruit, Chinese, Japanese and Mexican
food. I eat meat but I love vegetables. I read somewhere that after
the age of 30, every new foodstuff you eat adds a year to your life
- I should reach at least 110 :-) I like inventive baking. There
are only two things I can't eat - gluten and dairy - but one can
work around that and it's a good incentive to improve one's
