My hobbies are the sort that are hardly original but they make me happy - I love listening to music and am struggling to find space for my CDs anymore. Reading as mentioned already is another oone of my greatest sources of enjoyment, and I'm usually to be found reading something, even if it's an old book of mine which I've read countless times already. Couple those with my enjoyment for films and various TV series (all praise DVD boxsets). I also enjoy watching various sports, especially football, though the way Arsenal are playing at the moment I often wish I wasn't a fan *groans*.
I often enjoy walking around London in my free time as well, and it helps that in London this often means you're travelling faster than the local traffic. But it's a good way to relax and that's the main thing, especially when living in this crazy city. I'm a typical dyed-in-the-wool Londoner, with the phelgmatic attitude that comes from years of having to use London Transport.
All in all I'm a fairly quiet person, with a fairly dry sense of humour (my favourite comedy shows are Frasier and Seinfeld which may tell you a lot about what I find funny). I'm looking for someone who I'll just click with, I would say someone I have lots of things in common with but in the end you never know who you'll make that connection with.
I am dry, laconic, and a winter person.
