(meme) 10 things you should know about me
(blame werelobster.)

1. Chemicals
Too much of a control freak, which is testified to by the fact I've only had 1 real hangover in my life. Caffeine abuse is, however, a problem.

2. Clothing
I don't really have enough self-confidence, so usually end up in baggy T-shirt and jeans. I am a self confessed hat lover, and own about 8 hats, and a hatstand.

3. Good Habits
Occasionally pulling amazing bits of writing out of thin air.

4. Physical
I'd like to be fitter, but exercise bores me. Most of my exercise comes from cycling, the rowing machine, or dragging heavy suitcases across London. Not done much of any of these recently.

5. Background
Half English, half Polish. All hatstand.

6. Family
Parents, 2 sisters and 1 brother (deceased)

7. Bad Habits
Caffeine. Swearing. Various depression related things.

8. Bad Taste
Fancying psychotically evil characters, like the cop played by Gary Oldman in "Leon". (Not even Oldman can make Dracula sexy though.)

9. Material Wealth
Mostly in the form of shiny tech. My computer desk is like some surrealist installation art.

10. And Finally
I have no idea how I keep going, but I do despite everything. This is, on balance, probably a good thing.

IMAO, Bram Stoker made Dracula sexy.

Stoker's Dracula is a very cold figure. I don't find him at all sexy.

Mmm, Gary Oldman. Have you seen Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead?

I have a copy, but it's in Cambridge.
