The Me Me Me Section
Starsign: Astrology is nonsense, a sop to the credulous but if you are interested - Leo
Live: With Simon my husband in King's Lynn. I moved in Easter 07, so I now live in not quite flat Norfolk, close to the sea side, Sandringham, fields and fields of lavender.
Loves/Family: Simon and I got engaged on 15 December 2006, we got married on 27 October 2007. We are expecting our first child in late May 2009
Money: Not enough I refer you to the Job entry.
TV: Mainly BBC2 or Channel4 - League of Gentlemen, Blackadder, Newsnight, Bremner Bird and Fortune, Doctor Who, CSI if I remember, Horizon, Equinox, Grand Designs, Little Britain, The Fast Show, The Mighty Boosh. We are enjoying Heroes, Hyperdrive and Star Trek reruns at the moment. The Daily Show rocks.
Radio: There is only one radio station Radio 4. I've been listening to it for years, the first thing I do when I get home it turn the nearest radio on, then as I visit each room in the flat I turn the radio on in there, I've even got one in the bathroom so that I can listen to Radio 4 when having a bath. Having said that I'm currently listen to Radio 5 live as Any Answers is on 4. Particular favourites on R4 are; The News Quiz, From Our Own Correspondent, The Now Show, Sorry I Haven't A Clue, The Archers (there is no script you know!) PM, Today, Broadcasting House. Ways to improve R4 get rid of Quote Unquote,
Favourite Comedians: Bill Bailey, Eddie Izzard, Marcus Brigstocke, Jeremy Hardy, Jenny Eclair they are always worth watching or listening to whatever they are in, the Mighty Boosh.
Drink: If it's got alcohol in it I'll give it a spin at least once. Having said that I prefer real ale, my father was a member of CAMERA, red wine and campari and orange juice, cuba libres and mojitos are nice too. I don't like Advocat, alchopops and anything that tastes of aniseed. Non alcoholic drinks - strong coffee, weak tea, grapefruit juice, Irn Bru. Currently almost on the wagon
Votes: Every election since the age of 18, not that my vote has ever counted for much as I've always been registered in safe Tory seats. I don't like New Labour but I really loathe the Tories. Voted Lib Dem last time just so that my vote could help eat away at the Tory margin.
Education: Loads, studied Physics and Astronomy at Uni didn't get my degree though which is why I'm a civil servant. Has my education come in useful in my work? Yes, I'm not an engineer but I know when I'm being given engineering bullshit.
Fears: Spiders, really scared of them. Feet and the things at the end of them, my idea of torture would be a pedicure, the thought of it makes me feel poorly.
Reads: The Guardian, Private Eye,
Dislikes: Well, you guess, I'm a fessed up Guardian reader, on the political compass I'm in the bottom left quadrant it should be fairly obvious which isms I'm against. Oh and I can't stand replacement Upvc double glazing in period houses ugh.
I would like to learn to fly a light aircraft but it's too expensive.
Prompted by some questions from Kate Weston.
Music: Some of the bands that are not listed in my profile (I ran out of space) that I also like are: Oasis, Interpol, The Three Johns, The Smiths, Primal Scream, The Kills and The Killers.
Musical Skills: I can't play an instrument I had some piano lessons but didn't really take to it and was taught to play the recorder a little at primary school but I never took to that either. Sometimes I wish I had stuck to piano. Though in my idle daydreams I wish I was a guitar rock goddess playing in a band whose influences included the Pixies and the Jesus and Mary Chain.
Poetry: mmm I've never really got poetry, I did modern, post WWII poets for O level Eng Lit so have never been properly introduced to them. I prefer prose and plays.
If you have any questions about me you would like answering, well, ask them I'm not a mind reader. If they are not too crude, rude, yicky or too personal I will answer them, probably.
