About me

Location Shakespeare's Hometown. Lucky Ol' Me.
Introduction I like strong, sweet tea and cold, quiet days. When I am old I plan to be gloriously eccentric. I'm pretty eccentric now, honestly. I could spend my life on the top deck of a bus if I had the oppertunity. I like the freedom it gives me. I plan to write for the whole of my existance, I can't see a reason why not. Proper job? No thankyou. Happiness for me can be found in a canned sticky toffee pudding. There's joy in the simple pleasure of licking the toffee residue off the can. I can recite the "Frailty, thy name is woman" speech in Hamlet, a play which I love. I find comfort in the fact that, however bad you think your life is, Hamlet's will be worse. I go and see every Shakespeare play they put on at the RSC, because I like Shakespeare. I like the way he captures people. I think Mariah Gale is an exceptional actress. I become atatched to fictional characters, and have been known to cry at romantic couples in novels. & I'm not sure I belive in true love in real life. Go Figure. In short; I'm pretty paradoxical. And I like it. Life's more interesting that way.
Interests I read too much and write every night in places that are too dark with the result that I am becoming short-sighted. Althogh I NEVER wear my glasses so... whatever. I sing and I act and I do a little bit of dancing on the side. Pretty much the traditional triad of interests you get in these things.
Favorite Movies meh. I'm not that fussed about films. I like Gone With The Wind and old stuff with Marilyn Monroe ('cuz she's actually funny) and Breakfast at Tiffany's. I would quite like to be Audrey Hepburn.

You're going to the moon! What did you forget to pack?

My shoes. I'm always going barefoot, so, if the call to the moon was sudden, I probably wouldn't be wearing them. They would hopefully give me some moon-boots though. Although that might not be a good idea, because I know someone who broke their collar-bone falling off one of those.
