Re: All about us.
Seems a little odd to be introducing myself as I've only just started posting here...but I've been looking for an active friendly fantasy/sci fi forum and this looks like a good one so...
Age: old enough not to worry about it any more
Hobbies: Reading, writing, Italian, wandering about the city.
Interests: Foreign affairs (ex-diplomat), news.
TV Shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, True Blood.
Music: Classical, jazz, some folk and country, rock; officially still play viola (and a bit of piano).
Favourite Movies: Too many! Breakfast at Tiffanies, Harry Potter, Kick Ass, True Romance, Fargo, and The Nightmare Before Christmas all currently come to mind.
Favourite Authors: Far too many.
Likes: Reading; Lapsang Souchang; charbonnel & walker rose & violet creams; aniseed balls; Sunday supplements; Wikipedia; London; pale ales; BBC website; Edna St Vincent Millay's poetry; late nights and later mornings; department stores; scented baths; radio 4; Rome; reading in bed; 24 hr cafes; Mitsouko; crisp Autumn mornings; gelato; St James' Park; strong americanos made dirty, black and no sugar; wasting time in bookshops; Christmas; wittering on; peace and quiet; My husband.
Dislikes: Me when I procrastinate from writing; cleaning out the cats' litter tray (two, ex-feral kittens, now big comfy lap cats); poor punctuation (so shoot me); parents of badly behaved children; mornings; going into the office every day; people who witter on about Italy; nodding politely as people witter on; housework; cooking; sport; my husband when he has committed an offence against domesticity.
Other notes: Need to kick myself upside the ass on a regular basis to get words onto the page. Should also get on and finish the Classics MA (rather than sitting on my butt admiring the PG Cert) and do some piano scales. I do get out, some.
