Other things I love: travelling, my job, anything to do with palaeolithic archaeology, books, good sci fi (books and tv - more Firefly than Star Trek, though), hiking in the countryside/by the sea, going to interesting performances or exhibitions, singing, blues music (and loads of other genres, but I DJ blues for dancing at the moment and am getting very into it), parties/dancing with friends, drinking tea/gin/wine/ale, cooking/eating great vegetarian food (Vietnamese is my current favourite).
I love finding random things to do at weekends, like to get out of the city for a stomp in the countryside or a visit to somewhere historical/archaeological when I can, go to the Watershed or Cube to see foreign-language/independent/arthouse films, occasionally make it to the Old Vic for plays, read proper books when I have time and listen to a lot of music (swing to make me happy, blues and lyrical stuff to help me feel sad or thoughtful – e.g. Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Elliot Smith, Nick Drake, Anja Garbarek – and classical to help me work).
Mara and Dann, Doris Lessing
Blindness, José Saramago
A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf
Death and the Penguin, A Matter of Life and Death, Andrey Kurkov
The Disposessed, The Left Hand of Darkness, the Earthsea books, Ursula Le Guin
On the Road, Jack Kerouac
Loads of others, plus a pile of must-reads that I swear I'll get around to one day . . .
TV: The Thick of It, Borgen, Miranda, The Killing, Friday Night Dinner, Fresh Meat, Dr Who, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, QI, Black Books, Father Ted, Green Wing, the Mighty Boosh, Flight of the Conchords. Classics like Monty Python, Jeeves and Wooster, Blackadder, Fawlty Towers, M*A*S*H (Alan Alda as Hawkeye was my earliest crush, which probably explains my soft spot for men in 50s Hawaiian shirts). Radio 4, e.g. the News Quiz, the Now Show, a good play without too much wrist-slitting. I love a bit of R4 drama like the Complete Smiley by John Le Carré. And more recently The Waves, by Virginia Woolf. And you can't beat In Our Time for a lovely bit of Melvyn Bragg and his brain!
For music, see above.
Films – too many to list. Prefer independent/foreign language. I recently saw Beasts of the Southern Wild and On the Road, both of which I loved – though you should never see the film instead of reading the original Kerouac. Saw Surviving Life (Theory and Practice) last year, also excellent (funny and dark at the same time). Another independent one called Frozen River. Studio Ghibli, Ken Loach, foreign language, e.g. anything with Jaques Tati, anything by Almodovar. Amelie for romance. Easy Rider, The Shining, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Silly British comedies like Sean of the Dead. Classics, like anything with Alec Guinness or by Hitchcock.
Food – vegetarian, preferably non-British (Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Italian, Spanish, Mexican), though I do a pretty good veggie sausage toad-in-the-hole.
