I am a union rep (of an anarcho-syndicalist bent!)
I am quite politically active but you don't have to be...
wearing my pyjamas all day...
gurning in photos - I have found it quite hard to find any photos in which I am not pulling a disturbing face.
I am also good at:
sticking to my guns on matters of principles
looking after my friends
identifying wild plants
planning exciting trips
setting up camp in the night in wet weather and pretending everything is fantastic so you feel reasured that nothing is going to go wrong...
I like music! I love Shostakovitch and The Velvet Underground. I like reggae and punk and rough sounding voices that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. I loyally insist that I like all of my friends' bands and loyally buy their albums.
I like films both subtitled and stupid comic book remakes. I can't watch horror films or gratuitous and pointless violence. I only stopped looking under the bed for scary men at the age of about 22 and I blame shitty teenage horror film sleepovers. Paddy Considine is great.
I love all kinds and genres of food but I am veggie and kind of bored of having to justify this to people after 18 years (grumpy face). I make a mean mouth blistering Ma Po Tofu.
My cat, he is disgusting, but I will talk about him as if he is some kind of genius cat/person. You can tell me to shut up.
Why people find it so easy to hate whole groups of people (and then I remember the Tory party...)
Why do people post up pictures of their headless bodies!
