Interests Devouring big fat novels, bursting into song at any opportunity, capturing a moment on film, playing the guitar badly but enthusiastically, exploring the great outdoors, pretending to be cultured by watching arty films and occaisionally going to the theatre, entertaining and cooking up a storm, cycling 8 miles to work and feeling smug about it, doing lunch, making things grow, bending into unfeasible positions, getting tipsy, jumping up and down to live music, dominating the dancefloor, keeping secrets, winning at pub quiz, learning new words, enthusing over musical discoveries, dressing up, showing off, meeting kindred spirits, scathing, gossiping, bantering, bonding, hugging, flirting, staying up 'til sunrise, laughing til it hurts then forgetting what you were laughing about, writing about all of the above.
