Sport is my thing, and try to spend as much time as possible either playing or watching it. My main sports are football, rugby, and skiing, but I also like running, swimming and cycling (I've even combined the three once or twice...).
I've also started painting again (pictures and that, not walls) after a long, long time. Any pointers or ideas in that area are welcome.
Training for an ironman (to take place in July) at the moment, which is proving pretty hard work. Probably didn't think that one through...
I'm also pretty decent at throwing screwed-up pieces of paper into bins.
Books: I've read a few recently which I quite liked! Currently reading To Kill a Mockingbird. Before that it was Brave New World, Ulysses, the Fountainhead, Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, then there's all the Orwells (Nineteen Eighty Four never gets old). Basically, stuff I should have read in school. Most of all, though, Asterix, the Far Side, and Peanuts (i.e stuff I read when I was a kid) are amazing.
I can't seem to stop watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It's just incredible, and never gets old. Also, there's Game of Thrones, I'm Alan Partridge, Peep Show, South Park, and pretty much anything that's on Dave (panel shows in abundance, basically). Basically, if it's funny, I'll watch it.
Music: essentially, Thom Yorke and Josh Homme. My favourite band list includes Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, The Eraser, Them Crooked Vultures, Thom Yorke, Desert Sessions, Eagles of Death Metal and Millionaire. I'm also listening to alt-J, The Strokes, Jack White, Caravan Palace, Asteroid Galaxy Tour, RATM, Muse, SOAD, and Taking Back Sunday, amongst many more. blink-182 will always be up there for me as well, as they were the first band I properly loved.
In terms of food, it's everything except grapefruit and brussels sprouts.
