What I’m doing with my life
Wandering around the peculiar little wonders of the greatest city on Earth, catching up with my reading, sorting out misplaced apostrophes and overuse of the word 'fun' for fun and profit, and hoping that a lottery win will take care of that whole irksome 'career' question.
I’m really good at
Being far too British to answer this question. See also: my hatred of writing CVs.
The first things people usually notice about me
The eyes, the hair, the tendency to wear a lot of black (as a great man once said, it goes with everything).

Quattro formaggi pizza. That was quicker, wasn't it?
The six things I could never do without
Books, cheese, Doctor Who, music, clouds that look like Turner painted them, people with beautiful eyes
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing to the old tunes down the 1990s disco; watching bands who should be bigger than they are; at the local (which, living in London, is of course not in fact my nearest pub) with all the friends who have had the excellent taste to move to the same neighbourhood as me.
