Favorite Movies Hmmm - this could be very telling... I'm actually more of a TV Series gal at the moment and am heavily into all things dark and distinctly English in humour like Peep Show, Nighty Night, The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd etc plus I love Scrubs, Dexter, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Weeds and of course Buffy and Angel.

Favorite Books Any fiction by Dion Fortune, The Mask of Motherhood, Buddhism for Mothers, The Invitation, The Dance, The Call all by Oriah Mountain Dreamer - Too many authors, too many books and I love them all!

Aren't papier mache cuts the worst?

I'd pull out my celtic harp and start with a song full of sorrow and longing from my huge repertoire of Ye Olde English folk songs.
