azurelunatic revived a meme from several months back, where you answer some questions with a particular letter of the alphabet. This is what I said a year ago for A. And now Azz has given me G, so:
Something I hate: The Government, right now. Not the principle of having a Government, but the people who are currently using their democratic mandate to dismantle the NHS, punish people for being poor and disabled, stir up xenophobia and deport refugeees to countries where they will likely be killed. Not to mention trying to leave the EU, which is going to make these and lots of other things worse.
Something I love: Gaming. I started playing modern Eurogames in the late 90s, and they were a big part of my social life while I was doing my PhD, and jack introduced me to people who play a lot of board games and the more I play them the more I enjoy them.
Somewhere I've been: Germany. I haven't travelled in Germany as much as I'd like to, but every time I've been there I've really enjoyed myself. Well, the first time was on a school exchange trip which was kind of dire, but I really enjoyed visiting Munich even if my host family were awful.
Somewhere I'd like to go: Genova, mainly because of how falena talks about it.
Someone I know: GS, who is an octogenarian friend from shul, one of the very few people I know more extrovert than me, and a total geek avant la lettre.
A film I like: I can't actually think of any films I've seen beginning with G, I'm sure there must be some. Here's Gravity, which I had some positive feelings about although I wasn't massively impressed
Comment for a letter, if you don't mind a second round of the meme.
I prefer comments at Dreamwidth. There are currently comments there. You can use your LJ address as an OpenID, or just write your name.
