Something I hate: I'm with nanila here. Hate is not a word I like to use. Hm, here we go - Spite. People who set out to do things with the express purpose of being hurtful to others. Life is hard enough as it is. "Babies - God damn it, you've got to be kind."
Something I love: I guess I'll go with Science fiction. I was a voracious reader as a kid, but I read non-fiction almost exclusively til about grade two. I think it was because I found most stuff pitched at my chronological age painfully infantile. My mum (bless her) was worried about this for some reason. The school librarian said "Don't worry, I've got an idea..." and well, here we are!
Somewhere I have been: Sigh, I've seen a lot of Australia, but I've never been overseas. Sydney, I guess? It's a beautiful city, a place that I love to visit, but I do prefer Melbourne.
Somewhere I would like to go: Yikes. Lotsa places. :P How about Space?
Someone I know: I have a friend who is seriously involved in both the SF and Lego fandoms in Melbourne. She organises conventions, goes to meetings, and seems to devote most of her time to helping other people have awesome experiences. Hi Sue Ann!
Best director: My favourite - I make no claims for best - Henry Selick.
