Hi everyone, I'm Laura. I've got a lot of interests, one of which is cooking. I love to make dinner for friends. I like having people over to watch a film, or got out for a meal or a show. I'm not really into clubbing; I suffer from a debilitating lack of dance skills. I like to learn new things - at the moment I'm studying accountancy and Chinese, although the latter is not going too well! I'm told I'm a good friend and that I have a good sense of humour.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying accounting and going to lots of meetings. I don't really plan the minutiae of life, I just like to see what comes up.
I’m really good at
Reading an awful lot of books, and cooking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/authors: Neil Gaiman, Karen Slaughter, Sherri Tepper, Robert Jordan, The Alchemist, and I also like some comics. I love to read classics and factual books (mainly art or science), as well as modern fiction.
Movies: Every Wes Anderson film, especially Tenenbaums, action films - the pinnacle of which is Die Hard (don't talk to me about 5), Marvel/comic based films, Star Trek (the re-boots), copycat.
Shows: Big bang theory, Brooklyn 99.
Music: There's not a lot I won't listen to short of drum and bass and reggae. Favourites are Nirvana, Biffy Clyro, Herb Alpert, Florence and the Machine, Steely Dan, Ugly Duckling, Johnny Cash, The Black Keys, and Pat Metheny.
I am always in the mood for good sushi, Chinese and French food.
The six things I could never do without
Internet access (for those That's guy out of that thing - what's
his name?' moments)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm not vacant or anything, but I don't spend a lot of time
thinking about any one thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Buddies, chinese and a film, hello weekend!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I currently (and usually) have 5 different cheeses in my fridge. Who needs 5??
