Birthdate:Jul 8
I'm a former print and broadcast journo now immersed in the brave new world of trying to freelance in a foreign country. This takes up far too much of my life, when I would rather be obsessing about a book, film or TV show. Being an adult is not as much fun as they told us it would be.

My parents raised me to be a feminist/egalitarian and a grammar pedant. I'm not sure if it was deliberate, but either way, it's too late now. If either of these things is a problem, tough.

I love writing, reading, music and dancing. Up until university, I was a straight split between sciences and humanities and I wish I'd been able to keep it that way. I dabble in being shit at several European languages, but learnt to read music as I was learning to read words. I guess you can't have everything.

I don't update much and when I do, I'm afraid it's often to complain about something. However, I do read other people's entries and am always interested in meeting new people.
