Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
to be determined...
some similar experiences though like hosting 4 debaters, 2 Germans and 2 Dutch guys which was great fun!
used to go camping with people from Poland, Russia, South Africa, Slovakia, Turkey, Lithuania, everywhere else really;
used to crash at judges' houses and sleep on the floor with beautiful beautiful speakers; and brush teeth with them in the morning 4 persons to one bathtub;
History of Medicine 1 A.D. - 2010;
Legal history 1066 - 2010; The Selden Society;
music- classical, hard rock, musical... ish, pop, songs in: Latin, French, Spanish, Italian, Cantonese Chinese, English, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Korean, German, I'm not trying to be too ambitious here but there's no point in limiting myself to English when there's so much out there.
Singing a bit;
adoring Labour politicans of the House of Commons, London (ie. having a slightly unhealthy interest in politicians);
encouraging the sociologists to speak to the neuropsychologists;
I am really seriously interested in Chinese Feng Shui (admittedly I haven't always been interested in it)
Music, Movies, and Books
Music- Laura Pausini, Jay Chou (Taiwanese pop), May Day (Taiwanese pop), Yu Quan (Chinese pop), Alanis Morisette, Muse, Nightwish, Enzoeno, Jeff Buckley, System of a Down, classical stuff like Brahms and Bruckner's mass (in F minor I think), lots of great stuff
Movies- Leon the Professional, Sense and Sensibility starring Kate Winslet and Emma Thompson, I don't watch a lot of movies as I am a great deal more interested in documentaries and features;
Books- The landscape of Stalinism (an anthology), Paris as Revolution, The Painting of Modern Life by T.J. Clark, various books about psychology, neuroscience and physiology, Lord Goldsmith's lectures in printed form and I will read everything that I can read of S Raeburn's works- the writer based in Glasgow
Paper(s): 'From Moll Flanders to Tess of the D'Urbervilles: Women, Autonomy and Criminal Responsibility in Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century England' by Nicola Lacey, LSE Papers 2007
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
drinking coffee with Right Honourable Stephen Timms MP til 10:05pm and wondering if I should put this minister to bed. He's adorable by the way.
Other than that, giving so much help to sufferers of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
