Reader of books. Master of all things silly and ridiculous. Theatre
and Shakespeare are two of my favorite things. Love classic films,
and all things musical. I am also a huge football fan (both English
and American: Liverpool and Steelers), and love hiking etc. Life is
here to live so I'll try most things once.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it mostly. And having a good time into the bargain. Working
at NYU and enjoying it. Applying to Ph.D in Teaching and Learning
literacy, because literacy is importante, and needs new and
innovative ways to be accessible/understood(sidenote:didn't get in,
this time, but the fight for literacy innovation rages on).. I am
an Alto, and rock it pretty hard. Mozart is my jam. Or kuglen. Take
your pick. Went to Costa Rica in August and loved it. Now taking
Spanish as a result.
I’m really good at
Many things. Modesty above all.
The first things people usually notice about me
My infectious laughter.

Song of Ice and Fire.

face, Sense and sensibility, anything with Cary Grant, Katherine
Hepburn. Lord of the Rings, princess bride

Abbey, father Ted, vicar of dibley, AB FAB. Monty python,
Blackadder, Jeeves and Wooster
Music: the Beatles, Regina Spektor, pretty much anything that isn't
rap, pop or lady gaga

The six things I could never do without
2) people I love
3) see number 1
5) (fountain) pens and paper
6) there is no rule 6
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Chocolate, the nature of the universe, the casualty and causality
of history, travel, whatever book I'm reading/ story I'm writing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something amazing. Even if it's reading with a cup of tea and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have six fingers on my right hand.......:).
