    What kind of job do you do? Do you like London in general?
    Currently I'm a researcher and admin person for a leading professor at a university in London who is pretty well known internationally and does a lot of TV work and high profile stuff. It's an interesting job, partly because I get to meet a lot of really impressive and interesting people and also because it tests and challenges me in different ways.

    Sure, I love London in all kinds of ways - where else can you easily be with people from so many kinds of backgrounds, with such positive attitudes to each other and to their lives? London is like the epicentre for Being Someone but With Other People. :teehee:

    Lark or Owl?
    Generally I incline to Lark - I'm often working at 5 or 6am. However, I can have periods when I take it easy and want to laze in bed until 10. It's kind of when I'm working, I'm a Lark - when I'm not, I'm a sloth. :giggle:

    I lean towards Owl. But I'm trying to become a Lark.

      I'm fairly big on wine in a non-addict kind of way, but I guess Prosecco is pretty much the star!

      He cries well. :teehee:

      Seriously, I think he's a typical mainstream US politician in some ways, he has some good aspects to him and some of what he does has been beneficial, but it's also clear that there are some aspects to his personality that leave something to be desired. I don't think he should be President or anything like that. He was really a Clintonesque deregulator and neoliberal-inclined 'regular Democrat in office' for most of his career.

      I'm going with Russians - I want all those oligarchs under my thumb and subject to arbitrary beheadment, or banishment, etc.
