I'm a Londoner, fortunate enough to make a living off my geek superpowers, an enjoying it.
I like travelling. I have friends spread across the world, and like to pay them visits. Don't tell me "hey, you should visit me" without thinking twice, because I will probably take up the invitation straight away. In 2011, my last victim has been my friend in Shanghai. My next trip will be to the Brazil and Argentina, the excuse will be a wedding.
I like rain. I don't use umbrellas under light rain, and like the feeling of drops on my face, and the smell of clean air. Under heavy rain, I like the cosy of my bedroom.
I like music and dancing. I love rock/metal music and try to attend some good gigs. On weekdays I may be found trying to learn how to dance salsa. On weekends, I'm more on the dance-like-noone-is-watching side of things, in disreputable pubs in North and East London.
I don't like binge drinking, and I don't smoke. I drink alcohol responsibly, as otherwise I don't find it worth it. May happen that some day I drink a bit more than I should have, but that's fine if not made a habit.
I like writing properly. and I devote much effort to widening my vocabulary, fixing my grammar, and spelling words correctly. I don't mind occasional misspellings in other people, but I can't help disliking txtspeak. Oh, and if you ever see me writing "LOL", I'll actually mean it: Laughing Out Loud. Really. I have only written it once that I remember though.
