Who Are You?:

Where Are You?: In the corner of the office, on my own, 6th floor, Fitzrovia (not NOHO. That's an appalling word), London W1

What do you make?: Trouble.

What do you love?: Make-up, books, shoes, solitude, gin, smoking, disco music.

What do you hate?: Spending money by accident, Hoxton, Travis, the 'Mambo' label with that stupid picture of a monkey, vulgarity, the banal way television news is reported, people in general. Everything.

What do you listen to?: Disco 7in, 80s pop, King Adora, David Bowie, Janet Jackson, Betty Boo, 60s advert music.

What do you watch?: The traffic and people from my window. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Friends, even though I despise it. The Sopranos. Anything that happens to be on telly when I get home before I've got my energy back. Bad teen movies. Music video compilations that my 2-videod friend makes me.
