If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own LJ and replace any question that you dislike with a new, original question. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

Is there a hobby you want to take up?
Not really, as I don't have the time, although when Sarah and I get properly settled I'd quite like to take up gaming (again-ish), preferably <~B>Traveller</b> if I can find any group locally who plays it.

Is there something you are dying to purchase?
Yeah, the Doctor Who Black Guardian trilogy on DVD, which I can't really afford until I get paid.

What kind of books do you read?
Many and varied. Pratchett, Adams, Julian May, Clive Cussler, Doctor Who novels, Tom Sharpe, various books by Christian authors (currently reading through some Brian McLaren books I picked up in the USA, with some Rob Bell waiting to be read).

What is the weather like today?
Hot. At lunchtime it was kind of vaguely pleasant, but right now it's a bit sapping.

What's a major wish of yours?
Dunno. Just to have a fairly happy and fairly lengthy life.

Who is your celebrity crush?
Charlotte Coleman (RIP), Jane Horrocks, Suzanne Vega, Julianne Regan, David Tennant, John Simm, John Barrowman.

What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Supernatural, Being Human, Doctor Who, Merlin.

What are you listening to right now?
Nothing, actually, although I've been listen to the Paul McGann/Sheridan Smith Doctor Who adventures at work.

What song you like would you consider a guilty pleasure?
Probably It's 'orrible being in love when you're 8 1/2 by Clare & Friends. Other stuff I'm less ashamed to like, but that's maybe pushing the boundaries of hyper-naffness.

What websites do you always visit when you go online?
LJ, Christianforums. There are others I sometimes visit (Gallifrey Base being chief among them, and I go to Wikipedia and Google fairly regularly), but those are the only two I could honestly say I always visit.

What was the last thing you bought?
Can't remember.

Is there a person you would go gay/straight for?
Probably either John Simm or David Tennant. Although as I fancy them already..?

Does the weather affect your mood?
Not normally, unless it's winter and dark out in the early evening (I suspect I may suffer with SADS).

What is your zodiac sign?
I don't really do zodiacs, but apparently I'm Sagittarius.

Do you want to learn another language?
Yeah, C++

What do you like to do when you need cheering up?
Listen to good music really loud, or (even more guaranteed) listen to The Now Show or ISIHAC or watch Mock the Week or HIGNFY. They normally give me a good laugh. Also seeing family, especially Jakob and Eleni, makes me smile.

If you had to live in another country, what country would you live in?
Wales. I'd gladly emigrate there. I can see myself settling in Caerphilly, which I liked when we visited a few years back, or St. David's.

One thing you want to change about yourself.
My weight.

What are you looking forward to?
Short term - Sarah getting home. Mid-term - the wedding, new series of Supernatural and Merlin, not to mention Tha Vampire Diaries and the reworking of V. More long-term, the Doctor Who specials (I'll miss David Tennant when he's gone, but can't wait to see his final stories) and then the new series of Doctor Who with La Moff at the helm and Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the TARDIS. And the honeymoon, for that matter.

Tags? Well, thinkpink20 didn't tag anyone, but...ihavecake, multiclassgeek, blazingskies, huntingospray, __wilderness__, gem_pinkeh, krazykipper, and zoefruitcake. Although if you've been tagged and don't want to do it, you don't have to, and if you've not been tagged and do want to do it, feel free, and if you've been tagged and you've already done it, I apologise for my lack of observational skills.
