If I were ever to have unlimited funds I would most likely surround myself with gadgets - I love anything remotely techie, regardless of its usefulness quotient. Trying to save money to go to Antarctica on a survey trip, but having a daughter in University is hampering that plan!
I'd like to be more practical in terms of building/repairing things. Or even just have an ability to sew might be nice. I'll always have a go, but usually am horribly embarassed by the result and don't want anyone to see! Would also love to know why it is that some people are just natural bakers? I couldn't make a cake if my life depended upon it, although I can pretty much knock up something savoury from the few limp leftovers in the bottom of the fridge, so I guess I shouldn't complain really. Anyway, I don't often eat cake!
I like the rain and spring/autumn days, but not when it's windy. There's nothing more frustrating than sideways rain that sneaks up on you and wheedles its way through the gaps in your clothing! I think that there should be a natural law that states rain should never be allowed to move horizontally!
I'm a committed carnivore and love most types of food.
As for music, I'm into most music really, but currently listening to Breaking Benjamin, Panic at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, Muse, Zeraphine and Oomph!.
Book choices vary depending on how I'm feeling, but currently reading Doughnut by Tom Holt and Built to Last by Jim Collins. Recently finished The Long Way by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter, the final book in the Burton & Swinburne steampunk trilogy, The Red House by Mark Haddon, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, and Murakami's 1Q84. I often buy books just because I love the cover, which means I read a lot of things I wouldn't otherwise just because it had a pretty front!
Love theatre when I get the chance to go and have recently enjoyed The Importance of Being Earnest at The Grand (with high tea too!) during the Brighton Festival and managed to make it along to a couple of Fringe events, which is a definite improvement on previous years!
