What else? Um... I can cook a bit. I'm not amazing, but I enjoy it. Especially the bit where I get to have loads of little bowls with chopped herbs and things in them that I've measured out previously, so I can just chuck them in, like on a cooking show! I'm also excellent at avoiding going to the cinema (just don't like it - don't know why), being endearingly geeky, being a grammar pedant (comes with the job!) and making cheese sandwiches.
Oh, I also love University Challenge. Mainly because if I get more than 8 answers right (that's the level I've set myself, make of that what you will) I feel quite proud. My record is 17. That was a good day. :-)
Films: the Back to the Future series, Blues Brothers, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Amelie, This is Spinal Tap, the Indiana Jones series (NOT the fourth one!), Almost Famous, Limonadovy Joe, anything with Daniel Bruhl... basically I'm a massive fan of popcorn films. It's the same as with music: if it entertains you, and is made with love and thought, well done. It's why I think 'Toxic' by Britney Spears is an amazing song. Written in B minor, chorus in chromatic descending 7ths. Fucking brilliant. Odd, unlikely, and marketed as a run-of-the-mill pop song. It isn't, it's genius.
I actually like TV a lot more than films. The obvious ones - QI, Buzzcocks (I liked Amstel!), Black Books, HIGNFY, Dr. Who, Sherlock... and then the (maybe) less obvious ones... Cheers, Days That Shook the World, Fawlty Towers. Okay, if you're from the UK, they're obvious.
Music: Bats vs. Cats (my band! Ha!) They Might Be Giants; the Divine Comedy; Pixies; Ben Folds Five; Weezer; the Futureheads; the Kinks; Simon and Garfunkel; Sparks; the Smiths; Idlewild; English folk/folk-rock; Kraftwerk; Julian Cope; Regina Spektor; Maximo Park; REM; the Shins; the Beatles (obviously). Also a bit of jazz (Dr. John, Thelonius Monk), classical (particularly baroque) and, actually, any World folk.
Food: English cheese; curry; svíčkova (it's a Czech thing!); Walker's salt and vinegar crisps.
Drinks: Tea, tea, and tea again. I'm English. Back it up with Bernard (Czech beer), Oxford Gold, Summer Lightning, any crisp white wine (chenin, preferably), White Russian ("...do you like sex, Mr. Lebowski? The physical act of love?") or Jagermeister.
Wine (actually, drinking in general) is something I love. Everyone has a vice, and this is absolutely mine. If you want to get hideously, beautifully drunk and listen to music with me while talking about things that are utterly unimportant, but seem desperately important because they're ours, I might marry you. :-)
3. Tea (PG Tips, although I've switched to Yorkshire recently. A good move, I think)
5. A pen and paper (technically two things, but hey. Well, not just technically, but actually. Never mind).
6. ...work. I really like my job.
So... 7 things.
I did have my MP3 player on there, but had it nicked and realised I didn't miss it that much. The only time I used it was on the tram, and now I read instead. Music is my life, but I find that I like looking clever on public transport too, hehehe!
I should probably start thinking about why I'm quite the nerd, having just read that back to myself. Ah well, sod it.
Oh, and never trust anyone who tells you they don't like a single Beatles song. There's something intrinsically wrong with them.
