I'm a public servant and a skeptic. I keep my mouth shut about the former when it's illegal and the latter when it's divisive. Usually.
I'm sick of dating and would stop trying if I wasn't lonely.
Outside of work, I recently moved into a great new flat. So some of my spare time is spent is spent poking this place to improve it in little ways. Otherwise I explore the local areas paths, parks & roads or some of the geek related activities mentioned above.
Movies. Gattaca, Apocalypse Now, 300, District 9, District 13 (French film).
TV. Arrested Development, West Wing, Star Trek DS9, Doctor Who, Newsroom, Generation Kill, House of Cards, Vihart (though not on tv, she deserves a mention).
Music. A short playlist of what I enjoy. Watch on youtube so you can sing along with me! ;-)
Crowded House - Pineapple Head
Infected Mushroom - Saaed
Shona Laing - Soviet Snow
Goldenhorse - Run Run Run
Food. I enjoy cooking. I recently got a roasting dish, so I've been cooking a bunch of different things in there. I'll also try almost any food once.
Podcasts. From NPR and Freakonomics to CUSP and Hardcore History
Greenery & time to contemplate my surroundings.
Something creative to distract my brain, cause otherwise it wanders quickly.
Sleep. Sleep is your friend.
I also like thinking about politics, science and life.
