I am a PC gamer, not a console gamer, but I enjoy watching others do that. I make things with my hands all the damn time, from food to suits of armor. I have an addiction to Dr Pepper and Earl Grey. Not mixed together!
Current creative efforts: Spending at least one hour a night getting my drawing skills back up to snuff. Its a talent I've ignored for too long.
Rolling around on the bicycle! At some stage I also managed to amass a rather nice collection of Whiskey. I recently perfected the Whiskey Milk Shake.
I can make my own pasta, cook a perfect roast beef and make a kicking White bean and tuna salad. I'm also rather talented at reading the directions on the side panel of Brownie mix boxes.
I've managed to teach my ferrets to poop in a litter pan. If this does not impress you, then you have clearly never had to deal with a tiny animal that has both the shortest attention span in the known universe combined with the fastest metabolism.
Books that will always have a place in my library, include but not limited to any of the works by the following: J.L. Borges, Kevin Mitnick, Neal Stephenson, Terry Pratchett, William Gibson, Joe Abercrombie, and the usual host of classical authors. I have a thing for Homer and find myself going back to the Iliad at least once every 2 or 3 years...
Music: I love music of many shapes and sizes, with only a few genres on my 'WTF IS THIS CRAP?' list. I've a deep abiding love of Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Punk Rock (think Sticky Little Fingers and Crass, not this kinder gentler horse shit) Goth Rock, The Beatles and Opeth. I am that person who has stayed up all night discussing the merits of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and sharing whatever ridiculous rockabilly or electro swing I've lucked into with like minded friends.
An afternoon spent eating oysters and drinking good beer is an afternoon spent well. Currently working on this Quiche - its a shallots, mushrooms and gruyere mix, and I'm pretty sure I almost have it. Just hate having to make my own pastry crusts...
