Books: Can't read, won't read
Reigning Cherry Red Darts Champion.
Cycling (in my Cherry Red Records cycling shirt courtesty of Mr. Iain McNay). Yeah, that's me if you catch me on the roads of South or West London...but you'll do well to catch me. I ride like the wind.
Home Brewing. I consider it a sport anyway...and a craft. Witch craft if you know my ale.
As is the consumption that follows.
