What I do when not playing here :   Computer programming by profession.  Hobbies include Lindy Hop dancing, keeping ferrets and going to science fiction conventions.  Cycling, swimming and rowing for fitness.  Watching Buffy, Angel, Scrubs and Coupling, and some TV shows I am too embarrassed to mention here (okay so I like reality TV :).

First DWJ/when:  Dogsbody.  When I was around 9 in 1980.  Kept going past it on the school libary shelf because I didn't like the cover.  But I read it eventually as it wasn't a large school library.

Favourite DWJ (Why am I doing this to myself?!): Fire and Hemlock, 
Deep Secret, Charmed Life.

about the ones we don't like too.)  Sudden Wild Magic, Changeover, A Tale of Time City, Black Maria.
