What IS your registered interest? (what's yer hing?)


#1

From the gift thread.

What does everyone know you’re ‘into’? Music is likely obvious given this forum – anything else?

I am now generally known as a boring boxing pundit and have a shit ton of facts about wine. I know possibly more about perfume than a sane person should. Presents this year reflected those things accordingly, which was handy.

But no one buys me anything other than novelty items (which is thoughtful, and I appreciate them) or vouchers for various LBS or online retailers. I only wear club or team kit, and am very specific with new things I’d want/need for performance reasons. Trouble is all the vouchers I get are usually from different places so they just pile up and I pretend to Auntie June that I went and bought a really essential made-up thing, heh.

Same as everyone!

Well, I like ghosts.

And when it comes to books, films and music, I like things to be deep, sprawling, challenging, colourful, hopeful, lyrical and, if possible, transcendent.

Owls I guess. I took my husband to an owl sanctuary for his birthday once and my mum now buys us loads of stuff with owls on it. Last thing was a sad little owl ornament she got from eBay.
