Tom, I think this may be one of those cultural differences between the UK
and the US. Over here, it's fairly usual to mention (right at the end) some
personal interests: the idea is that it can't hurt and it might catch an
interviewer's interest... Though it's true, the next time I have to
re-organise my CV that's what is likely to be what falls off the end.

Jane, your inclusion of "hobby" information is, to my way of looking at it,
exactly the kind of information you don't give a prospective employer. It's
none of their business, and it doesn't relate to any possible technical
writing job.
