My self-summary
I'm really cool.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in Cambridge doing a literature Masters, which I'm enjoying a lot; my favourite thing is translation studies so I'm writing about that as much as possible. I also sing in a choir, and one of my main passtimes is finding new ways to use the internet as a procrastination aid.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating, often by talking about French literature. Quizzes, singing,foreign languages, getting enthusiastic about Derrida. I'm pretty good at translating and writing, and I'm a reasonable-ish cook. I'm great at having a passion for something and wanting to find out all about it, and I'm keen to meet other passionate people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess it depends on who's doing the noticing...curly hair? loud voice? big smile?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I left this blank for ages but realised it's the first thing I look for on other people's profiles, so:

BOOKS - Currently enjoying 'Nightwood' by Djuna Barnes.
I also like to read poetry. I'm currently enjoying Gertrude Stein. And Wendy Cope. I think my favourite poet is TS Eliot? But it's hard to tell.
This summer I read nothing but Dorothy L Sayers.

TV - again I like anything with a detective, Morse being my favourite. Or The Killing. I also love comedy - Stewart Lee, Peep Show, Parks and Rec, Community, Miranda - and I have a secret addiction to Don't Tell The Bride on BBC3.

FOOD - I love food. I lived in France for a year and my favourite thing to do was go to the market and try to cook whatever was in season. I'm an improving cook, not the best but getting there. I have a sweet tooth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work/academic stuff, my lovely friends, poetry, feminism, food
On a typical Friday night I am
A good Friday night could be curling up with iplayer at the end of a hard week, or the pub, the theatre, or cooking and playing Articulate with my friends.
