Friday night drinks? Meet me at: Tanuki's Cave. Bring on the sake.

Where I'll be wearing my new: Thick possum-fur socks. My toes are not coping with winter.

And this weekend I'm planning on: Eating well, getting lots of sleep and finishing my book. But somehow I doubt any of those are going to happen.

But first I'll need to refuel at my favorite cafe: The Fridge in Kingsland. Great food.

Saturday evening. If my dreams came true there would be a gig by: The National.

But if there's nothing else doing I'll probably just: Drive to Hamilton to see my mum and have a home-cooked meal.

On my stereo/headphones right now is: Muse - Map of the Problematique.

The books I can't put down are: The Hunger Game trilogy.

The TV show I take the phone off the hook for: MasterChef, because I'm obsessed with food.

The movie I've been dying to see: Super 8. Apparently it harks back to 80s films like The Goonies, my favourite film of all time.

A non-cooking Monday night means takeaways from: Satya. It's the perfect weather for Indian.

Or a splash-out Wednesday night restaurant would be: Coco's Cantina. For the pork belly.

*Matt Walker plays Justin Jefferies in TV3 show Home & Away and Cassio in Othello at the Maidment Theatre from tomorrow.
