Aside from indoor hobbies I love to get out and explore the countryside in a leisurely manner.
I work in the archive department for a 24 hour news channel. This means I work ridiculous hours some weeks.
I would like to be better at riding and speaking foreign languages.
Peter F. Hamilton, Katharine Kerr, Steven Erikson and Ian Cameron Esslemont.
I have studied Ancient Greek and Latin literature for my degree and love Classical Greek tragedy, especially Euripides, and the Latin poets Catullus, Ovid, and my favourite, Tibullus.
I'd like to reread: Dante's 'The Divine Comedy', Milton's 'Paradise Lost' and everything by Maragaret Atwood.
Music: Can vary wildly from the cool indie-ish stuff to the wildly embarrassing. I love-
Muse, Mumford and Sons, The Decemberists, Smashing Pumpkins, Queen, New Pornographers, Rilo Kiley/Jenny Lewis, Freezepop, The Foo Fighters.
Film: Don't take me to see Warhorse, I will bawl. A couple of my favourite films are the original 'The Karate Kid' and 'the King's Speech'. I do enjoy silly films like 'The Fifth Element, 'Hot Fuzz' and the new Sherlock Holmes films. I'd rather watch a comedy than a horror film. I would like to explore more foreign cinema beyond 'Amelie' and 'Y tu Mama tambien'.
Food: I'll eat most things. I do love and will go to great lengths for-
Chocolate, licorice, Asian food, seafood, barbecue ribs, good coffee
-Something to read. I love my Kindle.
-Seeing green fields and trees
-Coffee in the morning
