Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Tara and I was born in Ireland and lived in America for
a while, though now I've settled in London for good-
I like books. I love old books. I like reading, especially on rainy
days, with the sound of the raindrops outside, and a mug of hot
chocolate. I like old detective stories, and thrillers, and books
that really grip me so I can't put them down.
I like most kinds of movies, except really slow foreign ones, or
ones that are full of gore. I can cope with horror movies, but I
can never be alone in the dark after.
Speaking of the dark- I cannot sleep unless I'm in complete
silence, and total darkness, or as close to it as possible.
I have a cat called Grumbles, because he does.
I like most music, except most modern stuff, and rap/hip hop, etc.
I'm most fond of the swing-era stuff, though there's nothing better
than air-guitar-ing to some 80s music.
I like to cook, especially for other people. I have maybe a dozen
recipes I can cook well, about half of which I basically created,
or heavily adapted from others.
I have weird eyes- sometimes they look blue, sometimes green,
I was born and raised Catholic, but I don't really believe in
I have an accent that's cute and little, just like me!
I'm ever-so-slightly addicted to Reddit; my username there's the

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
That's a good question, actually. Jesus, what AM I doing with my

I have no idea what to put here because I have too many! But...I
guess I sort of semi-answered this above.
I like The Princess Bride (both book and film).
I like anything with Gene Wilder in, especially if it's a Mel
Brooks film, or he's co-starring with Richard Pryor.
I like thrillers of all kinds.
I like reading James Patterson, Stephen King, Terry Pratchett. I
like listening to Sinatra, Neil Diamond, and Madness.
I like to eat just about anything that I know I shouldn't because
it's so bad but tastes so good (that's right, biscuits, I'm looking
at you. Grr)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My sense of humour
My polo mints
My treasure box. (no, not a euphemism!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All kinds of things that I probably shouldn't, really!
Like, for example, have you ever thought about how weird a word
'car' actually is?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting at home with some good music and Reddit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I know I'm alone- or think I'm alone- I have a little dance to
whatever music I'm listening to.
Also, sometimes I make really small changes to my profile, so I get
