I love a nice big jigsaw, me. Preferably something like a thatched cottage surrounded by flowers.
I am too embarrassed to do them at home because my 80 year old mother and inlaws who are in their 70s share my enthusiasm and I just think if any of my uber-cool London creative/media-type mates came calling and saw a bugger like that on my dining table they would think I was a very sad case and immediately drop me.
I'm mostly dressed like a goth - head to toe black, trainers, streaks in my hair etc - and I always have my ipod plugged in if i'm walking anywhere or at the gym... but I'm just as likely to be listening to a musical soundtrack instead of some cool metal band. Not even cool, edgy musicals - on saturday I was rocking out to the sosundtrack of Annie... all together now - 'The sun'll come out TOMORROW!'
Annie = perfect for a 10 year old and not at all nerdy (though maybe nerdy for a Goth ipod!). I often peel vege to the, 'Songs From The Musicals' CDs - my favourite is, 'Spring, Spring, Spring' from, 'Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.'
I often find myself on a Friday or Saturday evening making resources for work because I've got myself all excitied about Shakespeare, or Wilfred Owen or some-such. That must be nerdy, right?
I am an absolute music nerd and will talk about 80s indie bands/lyrics until the cows come home - IF I can find another nerd to talk to, anyway!
I also like to arrange the tin of Caran D'ache pencils by colour, going from lightest to darkest...
Annie is cheesetastic! I also love Grease, Hairspray and the musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and can sing along badly with all the parts! The film is great - and has Tim Curry in it (bonus) and is almost as old as I am!
I like numbers, particularly those that are a palindrome. In fact, I'm quite partial to any palindrome. This is rather odd, but I like numbers on a digital display that are made up out of the correct number of lines. 4,5 and 6 are all GOOD numbers. 2 is dreadful, because it is 5 backwards. And don't get me started on 1, why does that have two lines?
I like planes too, I like to know what country they've arrived from.
Reading this makes me even more sure that I am very very odd. I'll get my coat......
