Things I Like
I cycle around London, & plan to tour Europe next year by bike.
The West Wing
& everything written by Aaron Sorkin. Bartlet for America.
I like Lush. I like smelling delicious.
My favourite London cinema. I've seen many good films here.
I read so much more now, and procrastinate much less.
Stupidly long legs and cute little honking noises.
Jasmine, chamomile, and rooibos & vanilla are my favourites.
Nectar of the Gods. Way better than coke.
I'm not proud of this. But I love it.
I would eat this all the time if I could be bothered to make it.
Easier than downloading; lots of new music.
My greatest love and my biggest nemesis.
Going to gigs
I wear earplugs and stand at the front.
Portraits & off-camera lighting in particular.
Things I Dislike
Loud, sweaty, odious. No thank you.
Like bees, but arseholes.
You say "Regulating the service." I say "Making me late."
DON'T JUST DRIBBLE ON ME. PIN ME TO THE WALL.
I just don't get it. It's not even enjoyably bad. Just bad.
Getting hit by cars
It happens. It stings. It's not as common as you think.
My least favourite task at work is cleaning up spam attacks.
The Daily Mail
I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed.
Frustrating. Infuriating. Popular.
Dark and cold. I might have it together by 11.30.
Always blowing the wrong way when I'm on my bike.
Having to work
Wouldn't it be great to spend life learning & making things?
If I married Gwyneth Paltrow I'd be a bit more cheerful.
The biggest cause of human misery since we invented Tories.
I ♥ my lungs.
I'm like a lizard. I'd rather it were hot & sunny all year round.
