I love books. It's not easy to pick favourites, but here are a few
that spring to mind right now.
The Wasp Factory (One kind soul told me that seeing this at the top
of my list made him "snort into his beer". I thought about removing
it, but it's truly a magnificent book. I like some dark things, it
doesn't mean I'm a dark person).
Pride and Prejudice (all Austen, basically)
The Count of Monte Cristo
A Prayer for Owen Meany
American Gods (and most Neil Gaiman)
Films (again, just a few)
Pulp Fiction (in fact, all Tarantino)
The Princess Bride
Mary & Max
Romcoms for light relief.
I have an eclectic, probably utterly goofy taste in music. If
you're strident about what type of music is "cool", you definitely
won't think I'm cool. But music makes me happy and I'm not snobby
about it. If it can touch me in any way, it's all good with
I love Thai, Korean and Vietnamese food, and Indian, and a good
burger, and a Sunday roast, and... basically, good food is one of
life's great joys, and I like lots of flavour and variety. But no
seafood unfortunately, I'm allergic.
