I live just outside London, surrounded by great teetering stacks of unread books, and mostly wrangle doctors for a living at the tallest hospital in the world. Occasionally I take time off for a crazy US road trip, but have to pay for all this stuff somehow dammit.
I have a very high tolerance for too much scripted TV, trashy genre films, occasional oversentimentality and a quite ridiculous capacity for useless film trivia, meaningless initial buzz and assorted shiny stuff (yarn! baking! jewelry-making!).
The highlight of my year is probably the London Film Festival, as I never get bored of random undiscovered stuff and shiny new previews but am very bad at getting around to writing them up :o)
