That aside, what else defines me?
I'm from oop north, as you would normally tell straight away from my accent. That part north of Watford and south of Edinburgh that BBC maps generally show as "here be dragons".
This isn't true of course. Geoff from Byker Grove was a well known monster hunter in his youth and the dragon problem is well under control.
I was brought up with a father who wanted me to appreciate the outdoors, and a younger sister who needed someone to watch musicals with, so I know 30 kinds of knot and all the words to several Gilbert and Sullivan operas. One day this combination will come in useful, I just know it. (Perhaps on this very site!)
Now the simple stuff on the other hand... calamity ensues.
For movies I tend to prefer an old B movie to anything new. Just because it's bad doesn't mean it isn't fun! I tend to prefer a character driven piece to a hollow CG-laden "blockbuster", quality over quantity! (Even when the quality is "questionable"!)
I guess like a lot of people I don't watch as much TV as I used to, save for some of the BBC comedies and drama via iPlayer. I tend to buy things on DVD later (or in the first instance, in the case of things like Anime), an eclectic range from Absolutely to the Avengers.
I deal with a lot of music as part of my job, but it's of the soundtrack variety rather than the pop charts. If you were to listen to my mp3 player you'd hear everything from symphonic orchestra to techno, but you'd probably not be able to name any of the pieces.
For food I usually go for something plain, like a nice home-cooked pie with fresh veg, with curries as an occasional treat.
A handy notepad
A pair of alarm clocks
My copy of the Hairy Bikers cookbook
A coat with lots of pockets
Then one day (one day!) when the stars align, and someone asks "what's your idea then?", I'll have a far better answer than they'd have imagined.
