If you're curious about the avatar, it is robots applauding something, and it is from the fantastic webcomic Gunnerkrigg Court. If you have never read any of it, I highly suggest you do.
Hello. I am Penelope Wendy Bing. But not really. Obviously that is not my real name, as I know no one with the last name Bing. I will not provide my real name, age, location, etc. I will, however, tell you a little about myself.
I'm ridiculously shy out in the real world. I stick with my group of friends and don't really start conversations. However, I'm really very friendly and talkative. So online, I'm very seldom known to shut up! I do well in school, and passably in sports. The only reason I look like I do okay at athletics is because none of the other girls in my class bother trying; it make me look better than I actually am. I love to write, read, sing, act, dance, play computer games, surf the net, and draw. Though I'm really no good at that last one. I am a devout Catholic, and am super proud of it. People who hate other people for their religious beliefs or lack of thereof really annoy me. So no matter what you are (Christian, atheist, Buddhist, whatever), no worries. You're fine by me.

A reader also wrote this limerick about one of my stories, Funny Little Fruit.
The apple is a funny little fruit.
He and the cheese had a dispute.
The cheese got quite haughty,
Quite rude and quite snotty,
And, eaten by Apple, turned mute.
Movies: Ratatouille, Princess Bride, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, pretty much any Disney musical, Dead Poets Society, Monster House, Coraline, Nightmare Before Christmas (I'm going through a mild Tim Burton phase) the Muppets Christmas Carol, Flipped, The Crucible...the list goes on.
Books: I can't possibly list everything I read, so I'll give you a "short" list. Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Leviathan, The Pendragon Adventure, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Warriors, Faeries of Dreamdark, Maximum Ride, Artemis Fowl (all of these are a series) Un Lun Dun, Bad Kitty (a picture book, but so cute!) Skippyjon Jones (ditto the picture book thing), Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Expect this list to grow as I realize I've forgotten stuff.
I feel that one books series needs individual mention, because it's so under-supported. The Chanter of Tremaris trilogy by Cate Constable. Amazing, beautifully written books. If you haven't read it yet, do! If you have, then post a story about it. PM m to tell me you have and I promise I'll R&R.
Music: Evanescence, Kerli, the soundtracks of the musical Wicked and every Disney musical out there, Poker Face (I really don't listen to any other Lady Gaga music), Yuki Kajiura (a Japanese composer), A Fine Frenzy, and too much other stuff to list. Again, this list will probably grow.
Anime/Manga: Gentlemen's Alliance Cross, D.Gray Man, Tokyo Mew Mew (although I haven't read much of it at all. D: )

Now goodbye to you all! I think I'll close with a poem written for me by my good friend Mel. I think it'll provide a sense of clossure. If not you'll get to enjoy some fun poetry. Speaking of Mel's poetry, all you Hunger Games fans should go read her poem book 'Haunting the Loser'. Now without further adieu, the end of my profile.
Nighty night night.
