Sometimes I write websites, sometimes I write books, sometimes I get to go on holiday and pretend it's work, sometimes I pretend I'm a novelist and one day that might even be true.
I enjoy pubs that have Scrabble boards, have a penchant for cute dresses and always say hello to cats in the street. I buy more books than I can read and write letters that I forget to post. I wear pink lipstick and drink red wine. I still don't understand why Day of the Tentacle isn't available on the iPhone yet.
Books - The Poisonwood Bible, To Kill a Mockingbird, Jane Eyre, Rebecca's World (if you've read this, I'll probably think you're quite brilliant). To Kill a Mockingbird. I Want My Hat Back (seriously, best picture book). Beautiful Ruins was glorious. The Signature of all Things. I've just finished Mrs Hemingway and it was wonderful. Best book I've read all year.
Movies - Training Day, The Prestige, An Affair To Remember, Cinema Paradiso, Lady & The Tramp (yeah, the Disney film), Walk the Line. Greenwich Picturehouse has rubbish cinema snacks but they do let you drink cups of tea and I'm all for that kind of film action. I like smuggling in cookies instead of eating an entire bag of Revels. No one likes Revels that much.
Food - Everything at least once (one oyster was more than enough, thanks all the same). I love trying new restaurants but sometimes I'm playing food writer for work and my tiny kitchen turns into a makeshift photo studio which is a bit of a pain because I'm hungry. I'll buy vegetables I've never heard of just because I'm curious but if I'm hungover I'm likely to just be eating those little triangle hash browns.
