Outside of my more esoteric hobbies such as politics, I'm also quite keen on reading - sci fi, fantasy, history, etc. - as well as strategy computer games, watching films, walking, singing, camping, musicals and sailing.
I've been told that I'm quite an easygoing and understanding person, and I love people with sense of humour.
That being said, I do have an unfortunate appreciation for bad puns, so whether I'm entitled to comment on what constitutes a sense of humour is a matter of some debate.
P.S. Updating this to add that I don't log in to OK Cupid very often any more but I still read and reply to any messages I get.
One of my main hobbies is politics, which I know some people find boring, but I do it anyway because a) I enjoy it and b) I'm fed up with all the injustice in the world and want to hit it over the head until it goes away. I've been the chief minion (she says right-hand-man but I like my version better) of a pretty awesome parliamentary candidate, which kept me busy, and now I'm working on doing my bit to defenestrate the local Tories.
I'm also a feminist who believes strongly in intersectionality. I think I might even count as vaguely militant.
Films: V for Vendetta, 500 Days of Summer, Serenity, Lord of the Rings, Scott Pilgrim Versus the World and lots and lots of others.
TV: At the moment I only have the time for watching How I Met Your Mother, Game of Thrones and South Park. Oh, and Doctor Who. Because the Doctor is awesome (Moffat sucks though).
Music: A big, wonderful mess. I love lots and lots of different types of music but my all time favourite musician has to be Billy Bragg.
Food: English, Italian, Indian, Asian and any kind of sweet pastries. Favourite meal has got to be family recipe spaghetti bolognaise though.
