I’ve managed to grow a few edible or attractive things in the garden. Most recently: sugar snap peas and strawberries.
I climb things (mostly climbing walls...)
I share a house with my girlfriend. (Yes, she knows I'm poly, so is she.)
I've read a lot of SF. Recent examples: Ancillary Justice + sequels (Leckie), God's War (Hurley), the Sarantine Mosaic (Kay).
Comics: Recent hits are Giant Days, Bone, The Ruby Equation.
- History, of almost all kinds. Recent examples: The Last Empire (Plokhy), Jerusalem (Montefiore).
- Political biography. Peter Mandelson's was surprisingly sympathetic, Blair's failed to make him appeal at all.
Film: Trainspotting, The Big Lebowski, Heathers and the three Star Wars film. Films with unsympathetic and/or flawed characters go down well (e.g. Burn After Reading, One Night At McCool's).
TV: Red Dwarf, Blackadder, Buffy. Scandinavian police procedurals. Like everyone else, sad that there isn't more Firefly. Arrow, I like the combination of superhero fantasy and slightly trashy soap.
