As a graduate of the 'Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic' Department of the University of Cambridge I emerged blinking into the light of the Real World, with the realisation that I need never again parse an Old Irish verb. For some unknown reason this made me sad. The result is that I know far more about Old Irish, Old Welsh, Cornish, Gaelic, and Breton than I really need to. After this I ran off to join the circus, but ended up training to be a solicitor instead (much the same thing really). Apparently I am soon to be a solicitor for our wondrous government, this may mean me having actual responsibility and definitely mucho hanging out in cool cat joints like the High Court, the Houses of Parliament and HMRC, along with a lot of paper shuffling for the good of the nation - be afraid be very afraid! Although I am now a lawyer, I am fighting the long hard battle to retain my personality; every 3rd Tuesday of the month I say something witty. I cram my spare time full of creative pursuits as an antidote to all that left-brain activity. I wouldn't be able to exist without music or comedy and dancing makes me as happy as Larry (whoever he might be). My favourite colour is blue, which is the same colour as my eyes. I have a tenuous ancestral link to Anne Boleyn. Happiness is sitting by a campfire in the woods or drinking cocktails in a bar or watching live bands in a scruffy London pub. Hell is the Victoria Line at 5.30pm.
