I enjoy watching rugby union avidly, mainly Pro 12 and 6 nations
since i don't have satellite. most people seem to think i have
pretty decent insight into the game but im not sure how far you can
trust family members, they might be a tiny bit biased :) I spend
way too much time ranting about the lack of investment in the
women's game., and women getting shafted in sport in general (maybe
i should take the sport bit out off that sentence). I try to keep
abreast of Rugby League and Premier League football too but i
usually end up falling behind.
I used to listen to a lot of music, mainly rock and subgenres, but
i like a lot of other stuff; just have not real knowledge in other
genres. I'll listen to just about everything except maybe drum and
bass, but as to stuff i really like it usually comes down to a few
songs per artist, and a few artists per genre.
Here's a few artists where i like a lot of stuff: ACDC, AFI,
Bauhaus, Black Sabbath, Blink 182, Hell Is For Heroes, Hundred
Reasons, Incubus, Joy Division, Led Zepplin, Marillyn Manson,
Metalica, Million Dead, Muse, Nine inch Nails, Nirvana, Opeth,
Pantera, Placebo, Pixies, Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine,
Richard Cheese, Rodrigo y Gabriela, The Cure, The
Killers, The Offspring, The Strokes, Tool.
(wow if you made it through that you must really like me)
Food wise I'm pretty picky, but when i like something i tend to
love it e.g. I adore Indian spice mixes but i tend not to like
their curries very much (gah tomatoe!) and the other meals are
fairly dry without a sauce. I eat tons of roast potatoes, which i
thing I've got pretty good at. Thai food is one of my favorites,
also chocolate deserts are heaven. Drinks wise i adore Twinings
Original Earl Grey, and i probably drink too many soft drinks.
