GeneralI've diverse interests really... I'm a scientist, well, thats the day job anyways...
I love writing poetry and fiction and would love to be able to write for a living. drawing and painting, taking photos, reading, jigsaws, paper mache, clay modelling.
I'm fairly active and love trying new things, boxing, soccer, a bit of hurling, table tennis and hill walking etc. Of course I have to say, up MUNSTER rugby (don't know a thing about the sport though)!
I also like hanging out with my friends and having a laugh, going out with my friends, making people laugh, kicking off my shoes after a long days work, checking my bank balance to find I'vce been paid (not seriously!) , travelling around, planning holidays, going on holidays, getting praised, making somebodys day, giving presents, shopping (sometimes), eating yummy things like pavalova and meringue....
MusicI like a bit of everything really, depending on my mood, pop, rock, country, easy listening, r'n'b, classical, folk... but heres some of who I have in my collection: I'd have to say there are very few new bands that impress me these days but "Director" and "Jodavino" are class acts!!!
