Two teams can be interesting if you have twists and roles. The shapeshifter role was great I found.

I do the same Sully, except I've hundreds on my to-read list (kept on GoodReads) and about 20 physically at home waiting to be read. Then there's a whole library of books near me too, so I borrow from there too. Too many books, too little time. I alternate between heavy (eg, The Idiot which I read this year) to light (eg, Lee Child's Jack Reacher books) and get about one non-fiction in for every 3-4 fiction. Love sci-fi and fantasy though. I'd read anything except chick-lit.

And then a fake one like rom com or thriller or well anything except for science fiction or fantasy because I don't understand them.

Except Harry Potter. Love a bitta Harry.
Ive more unread books now then read I find it hard to read these days but find it very easy to buy them already have 3 on the list since we started talking about them

I'm guessing but Id say this was pretty complicated, Im still not sure id be able to explain it top someone

What movies? There are no Jack Reacher movies. Just like there are only three Indiana Jones movies. I defy somebody to tell me different!

As a staff member of tcd I have borrowing rights in the library. I'm gonna miss that place when I get a real job Because of the arts department they have lots of regular non-academic books, and as it's a deposit library they're sent a copy of every book published in GB&I every year. They don't keep them all on campus - most go to storage. But it's a really great facility.

I just don't understand science fiction. I know that makes me an odd scientist.

Secret photos

Ah no. Yeah, photos went up but people took them back down I think. Well I deleted mine as I was far too drunk in it and that wasn't needed in the public domain. I only posted it to show that me and Tigs might have mutual friends IRL!
