How ya troshin' from near Norwich. I have one of those weird minds that take in all sorts of facts (mostly useless ones) but can't remember what I went out to the village shop for. I do astrophysics but my degree is in linguistics, so I suppose I'm a bit of an absent-minded professor type.
So, starman and spurs fan, having just listened to our boys put 4 past Southampton. Other interests include Polynesian culture, calligraphy and arty-farty things generally. Also love Tolkien, and was formerly editor of the Tolkien Society's linguistics journal.

Welcome to you spursystarman :-)

Eclectic set of interests there! I remember as a teenager in the sixties trying to work out the languages in LOTR.

I didn't encounter LOTR until my first year at uni, studying linguistics (and majoring in Celtic languages), so Elvish was very attractive, both academically and aesthetically!

Welcome spursystarman. I support Spurs too. Looking forward to us thrashing Watford tomorrow and Crystal Palace beating the bloody Gooners (The later may be wishful thinking but we can dream). Splendid choice.
