No baggage other than two Maine Coon cats.
Veggie but easy about the preferences of others.
Go to various exhibitions that catch my eye locally. All sorts, really. My interests vary wildly.
Middlesbrough F.C season ticket holder. Good excuse for a weekend away, especially when we're down in London. You wouldn't have to watch the football if you didn't want to - I'd suffer for the pair of us.
Favourite film genres: Indie, psychological thrillers, sci-fi, comedy and horror though I've been known to get dragged along to a Hilary Duff movie once. Just the once, mind. Also like arthouse when in the mood.
Music: I'll listen to anything but would rather have 5Live on all day, to be honest. If pushed, prog rock, Rush etc. Also quite keen on the sound of silence at times.
Theatre: I like mucho - barring musicals. Not overly keen on a storyline being interrupted mid-flow by the lead suddenly bursting into song. I've never really *got* this.
Books: Internet - or maybe middle-age! - has played havoc with my attention span to the extent I read nowhere near as much as I once did. A few of the many writers I used to enjoy were Tom Sharpe (early work), Carl Hiaasen and some of those Russian comedy dudes such as Dostoevsky and Solzhenitsyn.
Food: Mostly anything providing there's no meat, fish or eggs involved.
