My self-summary

I am not a doctor. Get that out of the way first.
I've been through several mostly unrelated jobs (including, but not limited to: gallery, gay bar, publishing house, paddle steamer, and a gentleman's outfitter), before settling down over a year ago and running a coffee shop in my local library. I then lost everything (profession- and finance-wise) to a nasty piece of council bureaucracy and a bad contract, and have since been clawing my way back up from nothing.

Stories are important to me, and I can appreciate most anything in life if a good story can be made from it. Or at least a good laugh, anyway.

I don't read or write as much as I feel I should, I have more suits than is probably reasonable, and I drink what I feel is exactly the right amount of tea.
What I’m doing with my life
Started over from nothing. Doing okay now.
Working nights at a hotel, working days at an amateur theatre company. Writing another play. Saving to go overseas.

I'm also looking into tailoring; I have experience in pattern making and hand sewing, so that's a painful part out of the way already.
I’m really good at
Telling stories. Any story: verbal, written, anecdotal, pointless. I write a little, and have had pieces published here and there.
Making a good cup of tea.
Knitting, but I can't crochet to save my life.
Fussing over trivial things (good grief, I'm an old lady).
Keeping my middle name a secret.
Being surprisingly warm.
Smelling nice (I am told this semi-regularly).
Backgammon (this is a lie).
The first things people usually notice about me
Of all the people who are qualified to answer this, I am not one of them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books and Authors:
Catch-22, Douglas Adams, Joe Abercrombie, Dianna Wynne Jones, Lewis Carroll, Oscar Wilde, Dorothy Parker, Neil Gaiman, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, The Brain That Changes Itself, Lemony Snicket/Daniel Handler, lots of YA fiction.

Big Fish, Hayao Miyazaki, Wes Anderson, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Confessions, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.

Bryan Fuller (especially Pushing Daisies), The Venture Brothers, Archer, Gravity Falls, Boardwalk Empire, Black Books Misfits, Ugly Americans, Rocko's Modern Life, Louis Theroux.

Pretty much anything served to me
Tea is a food
The six things I could never do without
At least one suit, for whatever occasion
Probably the Internet?
Knitting needles
And a plot hole
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The stories behind everything. And death, actually. Not in a bad way.
Wait that answer wasn't funny. Great, what do I do now?
On a typical Friday night I am
Games night with friends. Ticket-to-Ride, Resistance, Coup, Werewolf, Channel A, Spaceteam, anything we can find that will involve lots of yelling and laughter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I feel like funeral services is my calling. I had to turn down a position as a mortician's assistant due to prior commitments once, and I am looking at going back.
