13 things

  1. I live in Johannesburg with my husband, our daughter, our 2 felines and my husband's father. I do sometimes blog about them, and more now so that I have merged the family blog with my own. We recently (June 2013) moved into a new house, which we are busy turning into a home.
  2. I work in IT as a System Center type person.. Sometimes, I do cool things in my day to day job that I sometimes like to share on my tech blog. But my opinions (on this blog and that one) may not represent those of my employer. This blog is mine in my private capacity (as is my tech blog).
  3. I like to think about politics, and may even have an opinion about it once in a blue moon. And sometimes, when my balls are bigger than my brains, I even blog about it.
  4. I love to take pictures of my every day life. Lots of them. My husband believes I am the eternal tourist.
  5. I write stories when the bug bites, and would like to sell my stories one day when I grow up. Preferably as slaves.
  6. I listen to a lot of music from a wide variety of genres, but tend to lean towards the darker sounds. Mostly obsessed with folk metal, steam punk and gypsy punk. I live for Kaizers Orchestra, Ensiferum and Opeth.
  7. I am an avid reader, and can read a lot, when work/life allows. Favourite authors are Pratchett, Gaiman and Murakami. I buy a LOT of books, and sometimes only read them years later. My current reading binge is everything science related.
  8. My family and I do not own a television set. We each have an XBox 360 (using an HD projector or HD screen instead of a television set). I think our lives are better for it. We do, however, consume a LOT of media, and have a pretty staggering DVD collection.
  9. I like to tinker in the garden sometimes, and may even occasionally grow things. 
  10. My husband and I, on occasion, may revamp a room in our home, which I rather enjoy, especially if I can throw something interesting into the mix, such as blending old and new from different worlds.
  11. I am completely and utterly addicted to Star Wars and Harry Potter. Also love Sherlock, Star Trek, Indiana Jones, Doctor Who, Stargate and Farscape. And comic books. The real type. That may not make you laugh.
  12. I am a vegetarian and a teetotaller. You'd be surprised how much this influences how you live and how people treat you.
  13. And yes, I do live online. I spend a fair amount of my free time online, especially on Tumblr, Last.fm, Facebook, Twitter.
