In first person:
I like looking at things. My favourite colour is red. I like micro-brewed beer, red wine, basil and cheese. I like brightly patterned material, history, good fashion, leather boots and jasmine. I love being an Australian and live near a beautiful park. I'm also very polite, clean and trustworthy and I choose to damp dust over swiping at ornaments with a feathered stick.
