My self-summary
I got my palm read for $5 in New York once. It was after midnight and she was filing her nails as I walked in. The mystic took her chewing gum out to talk with me. Professional, like. I would say that she had a $5 insight into my deepest reaches, correctly predicting that I like travel and am skeptical about the efficacy of crystal balls.

For no extra dollars, these are some hobbies, interest and things I think are 👍:

>radios 4&6
>theatre & dance & opera & art & design & all that
>walking up hills, staring down dales
>discos, discos, discos
>growing my own veg
>trying to navigate the Bristol cycle paths without dying
>fancy dress/fancy dresses
>post rock & hip hop & lots else
>fake tattoos & real tattoos
>wanderlust & wondering lost (often a causal relationship)
>reading chunky novels
>fiction writing for fun and factual writing for fun and for my salary
>feminism and equality causes
>my job with an international poverty and environmental charity

"Holy, holy fuck this water is fucking cold. What the fuck just floated past me? Just a leaf. Phew. Why did I even get into this bit of sea/lido/pond?
