I climb things (mostly climbing walls...) and run a bit (mostly Parkrun at the moment).
I’ve managed to grow a few edible or attractive things in the garden. Most recently: sugar snap peas and strawberries.
I share a house with my girlfriend. We are in a polyamorous relationship.
SF. Banks, Asher, Reynolds. Recently: Ancillary Justice + sequels (Leckie), God's War (Hurley), the Sarantine Mosaic (Kay).
Comics: The Invisibles, Sandman, Giant Days, Dumbing of age. Comixology is my downfall. Recently: Bone, The Ruby Equation.
History: Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire. Recently: The Last Empire (Plokhy), Jerusalem (Montefiore).
Political biography. Peter Mandelson's was surprisingly sympathetic, Blair's failed to make him appeal at all. Currently reading the Moore bio of Thatcher.
Film: Trainspotting, Scott Pilgrim, The Big Lebowski, Heathers and the three Star Wars film. (Maybe I'll accept there’s more than three now…) Films with unsympathetic and/or flawed characters go down well (e.g. Burn After Reading, One Night At McCool's). Hugely enjoyed the 2016 Ghostbusters.
TV: Red Dwarf, Blackadder, Buffy. Scandinavian police procedurals. BSG. Like (apparently) everyone else, sad that there isn't more Firefly. Arrow, I like the combination of superhero fantasy and slightly trashy soap.
