Still on an intergalactic cruise...
Once upon a nostalgic clichée, I worked as Deputy Editor for H2G2. Then I had some fun writing technical manuals, playing the double bass and looking after monkeys, but this didn't work out as they'd keep launching themselves off the E string and frolicking on my computer keyboard1.
I'm now gainfully employed as a writer and researcher (and occasional musician and web monkey), and am very much enjoying what life is doing at the moment. "Find (Quite) interesting stuff, meet interesting people, and write about it." Could there be anything more exciting to do with one's life? It probably felt the same to medieval explorers, hacking their way through jungles in search of cities of gold, except that jungles are at least as interesting as cities...
With any luck, I shall have a baby daughter arriving in early July, which I am very, very excited about. I never thought I would say this (much less mean it), but responsibility is, at last, something I welcome with open arms, invite in and give my best wine to. Although our GP doesn't recommend we take this literally.
I've been a Douglas Adams fan since I could read (or listen or see), and have been hanging out on Floor 42 (as 'beeline') for nearly six years now. Come. Enjoy fresh pasta. Discuss everything (and life and the universe, obviously).
