From the gentleman and scholar who is bodybag_pilgrim:


A weakness we share :)
Books are my solace and my sanctuary, my companions and my retreat. When I'm happy I read, when I'm lonely I read. I grew up in and around libraries, and I've never been precious about actually owning books, so my bookshelf grows and ebbs over the months and years. But there are always more books out there to read, and I am never so excited as when walking into a new bookshop or library - the possibilities are endless.


Not sure about this one, or how it relates to me. I have a bluetooth earset which is rarely very far from me, but that's probably about it. Not to say that if someone offered me an upgrade on my ears or eyes I wouldn't be tempted!


While my hearing and sight are as good as they need to be, my nose is the only sense that works a little better than average. As such, I thoroughly enjoy new combinations of scents, and find that they often speak to my emotional state in much the same way as music can - mirroring my mood or prompting a new one. My perfume collection currently holds more precious scented oils than I may be able to use in my life, but it doesn't stop me testing and acquiring new ones on a regular basis - there's always something new to smell!


I'm not sure that everyone would agree with this as one of my defining characteristics... My sense of humour & playfulness plays best within the classic two-man setup of many a comedy duo. It's not often I find someone I can bounce off sufficiently to keep the ball in play in a game that incorporates both improvisation and one-upmanship, but I am honoured to share that dynamic with bodybag_pilgrim.


Do I? I would have said that I have my share of multi-tasking habits (watch TV & iron, drive & talk on phone handsfree, travel & sleep, rock a baby & talk, etc.) but that I find it difficult to change gears; mental gears in switching to a new task, and (unfortunately) physical gears when driving. Multi-tasking and task-switching might not be the same thing but they're tied together enough that I now perform most tasks sequentially and not together...

OH MY GOD YOU CAN //IRON//? (Next time you're over you HAVE TO HAVE TO HAVE TO teach me, okay?)

PS: Vacation time = call the house phone! We're never in the computer room so we can't hear when his phone goes off (it's on vibrate). Feel free to call whenever, if we aren't up we just won't pick up. XOXO!

I can't actually iron - I just have a stab at flattening scarves and spend half an hour doing shirts/blouses that crease as soon as I'm done... :sigh:

I'll see if I can give you a ring on drive home if I'm not falling asleep at that point :)

Went out for Chinese & the pictures yesterday - I don't do late nights, so I'm shattered today :)
