A Little Bit About Me (no personal stuff):
Political Affiliation: Liberal.
I am an English major in my final year of college, had to move back home (thank you, Congress, for sucking) after a near death experience -- which is why we don't mess around with spiders, kids -- one, huge, epic breakdown in the middle of the night, roommate drama, and crazy exes. It's been a whirlwind of a year, to say the least. The plan is to figure life out, continue writing (yes, that's right!), and then be an event/ wedding planner, because I'm good at it and don't have the patience to teach English or music. Blogging doesn't work for me, neither do traditional journals, I am an avid cook/ baker (and make some damn tasty concoctions too), and am still convinced that my Hogwarts owl is just really, really, "oops-sorry-the-aliens-abducted-me-and-wouldn't-let-me-go-in-time" lost.
I have a fascination with Marilyn Monroe (been this way for twelve years, since the first time I saw "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", not just since she became cool again), all things vintage or classic, and am proud to be curvy. Yay hips!
Favorite Types of Music:
Opera/ Classic Rock/ Showtunes/ Classical/ Choral/ Blues/ Jazz/ Oldies/ Country!
Harry Potter (all), Sevenwaters Trilogy, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Gone With the Wind, The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux, Little Women, Sense and Sensibility, As You Like It, Othello, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Pride and Prejudice, From Pamphilia to Amphilanthus by Lady Mary Wroth, Hunger Games series, The Iliad, The Odyssey, The Aeneid, Twelfth Night, The Inferno, any mythology texts (Greco-Roman and Norse) I can get my hands on, The White Raven (a retelling of Tristan and Isolde), Night by Elie Weisel, The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky, Ella Enchanted (yes, still), Alice in Wonderland, Poe's short stories, almost anything by Mercedes Lackey and Robin McKinley, C.S. Lewis and many, many more.
Yes, I can be a literary snob, but only when A) someone tries comparing Twilight to anything that's actually, you know, decent, or B) there are repeated, egregious spelling and/ or punctuation errors. It's the common sense mistakes that bug me ("you're" and "your", "too" "to" and "two", "there" "they're" and "their", "where" "wear" and (yes) "were"). It's like fingernails on a chalkboard, but for my eyes and brain. Argh!
...I think I've just discovered my kryptonite.
