liv: alternating calligraphed and modern letters (letters)

[personal profile] azurelunatic revived a meme from several months back, where you answer some questions with a particular letter of the alphabet. This is what I said a year ago for A. And now Azz has given me G, so:

Something I hate: The Government, right now. Not the principle of having a Government, but the people who are currently using their democratic mandate to dismantle the NHS, punish people for being poor and disabled, stir up xenophobia and deport refugeees to countries where they will likely be killed. Not to mention trying to leave the EU, which is going to make these and lots of other things worse.

Something I love: Gaming. I started playing modern Eurogames in the late 90s, and they were a big part of my social life while I was doing my PhD, and [personal profile] jack introduced me to people who play a lot of board games and the more I play them the more I enjoy them.

Somewhere I've been: Germany. I haven't travelled in Germany as much as I'd like to, but every time I've been there I've really enjoyed myself. Well, the first time was on a school exchange trip which was kind of dire, but I really enjoyed visiting Munich even if my host family were awful.

Somewhere I'd like to go: Genova, mainly because of how [personal profile] falena talks about it.

Someone I know: GS, who is an octogenarian friend from shul, one of the very few people I know more extrovert than me, and a total geek avant la lettre.

A film I like: I can't actually think of any films I've seen beginning with G, I'm sure there must be some. Here's Gravity, which I had some positive feelings about although I wasn't massively impressed

Comment for a letter, if you don't mind a second round of the meme.

letter please :)

Your hates are my hates. I live with another stay and one adamant leave so I'm working on breaking down his reasoning. He gets rather angry and shouty when I do that though so one argument at a time. He does that, sadly, when he can't refute an argument because...well I don't present arguments I present facts which break down his argument.

Letter please?

Obviously I see more US news than UK, but everything I've heard about Over There sounds fairly frightening lately. (As if we're doing better...)

I'd like a letter! Bring back the LJ/DW meme, I say; they're so much thinkier than equivalents on other social media.

I'm so happy my ramblings about Genova got you curious about visiting it.

I could do with a quick meme. I'd like a letter, please.

That looks like a manageable meme - go on, give me a letter.

Genoa is lovely - the vegetarian food in Liguria as a whole is delicious, also.

can I have a letter too?

I believe we share the same hate but for the different Governments.

I would love a letter. :) [And ugh, why is there so much governmental suck right now? I'm very grateful for Canada's PM at the mo'.]

A letter would be nice, as I'm trying to post more lately.

Soundbite

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
