Der er så meget at sige om mig, og så lidt af det synes vigtigt. Jeg er 26 år gammel; jeg har én lillebror; jeg er 180cm høj og vejer omtrent 110kg, så du skal forestille dig en på alle måder temmeligt stor pige. Det sidstnævnte skræmmer ofte overfladiske mennesker bort, og det har jeg det fint med. Jeg bruger meget tid på at drømme om et bedre og mere spændende liv, hvor folk virkelig holder af hinanden - og siden dette er en uopnåelig utopi, opsøger jeg i stedet andre verdener gennem bl.a. bøger, TV, rollespil, skuespil og musik. Politik keder mig nemt (selvom jeg benytter mig af min stemmeret), og jeg synes primært, det får samfundet til at synes uinteressant og overkomplicerer tingene, og desuden har jeg mere tilovers for individet end for samfundet som en helhed. Jeg ville ønske, politikerne bare ville tage sig sammen og løse de globale problemer med fattigdom og sult. Jeg har tendens til at føle mig ensom, selv når jeg er sammen med andre. Nogle gange kan det virke, som om jeg er den eneste, der ikke fester hver weekend og synes, at det burde være muligt for folk at være sammen andre steder end på diskoteket. Jeg prøver at være ærlig (hvis du ikke havde lagt mærke til det) fordi jeg er træt af ligegyldigt sladder. Sådan er jeg, hvad enten du vil have det eller ej. Og jeg siger ikke "dit tab", hvis du vælger det sidste. Jeg kan stort set lide alle, når først jeg lærer dem at kende - hvis de vil lade mig...
There is so much to be said about me and so little of it seems to be important. I am 26 years of age; I have one younger brother; I'm 180cm tall (roughly 6 feet) and wheigh about 110kg (quite a bit, in case you don't know kg), so you should be imagining a rather large girl in all respects. The latter usually scares off the superficial people and I'm quite OK with that. I spend a lot of time dreaming about a better or more exciting life where people care about each other - and since this seems to be an unatainable Utopia, I seek out other worlds instead through such as books, television, role-playing, acting, and music. I'm easily bored by politics (though I exercise my voting priviledge) and I see it as a way of making society seem uninteresting and complicate things more than needed, and besides, I care more for the individual than society as a whole. Basically, I wish politicians would just stop screwing about and solve world poverty and hunger already. I tend to feel a bit lonely, even when I'm with people. It sometimes seems I'm the only one who doesn't party every weekend and who thinks that it should be possible to get together other places than the disco. I try to be frank (in case you haven't noticed) as I'm tired of unimportant small talk. This is who I am, take it or leave it. And I'm not gonna say "your loss" if you choose the latter. I pretty much like everybody once I get to know them - if only they'll let me...
I am obscure, lonely, and soft-cored
The Harry Potter series including The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I'm a total fanatic! Anything by Neil Gaiman; The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams; Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. I have a thing for the danish writers Bjarne Reuter and Lene Kaaberbøl. I like classics and enjoy most fantasy.
Everything writte by Charlie Kaufman, especially Man on the Moon; anything by Tim Burton with emphasis on Edward Scissorhands, NBC and Big Fish. The X-Men trilogy; the LOTR trilogy; and the Pirates trilogy (always count me in for a marathon). The first SAW movies - eventually it turned into the horror series that just wouldn't end, but the torture and the challenges are still entertaining. Interview with the Vampire, Låt den rätte komma in, Nosferatu and other quality vampire movies. Bad horror/thriller/ghost stories (great when coming home drunk or as hangover entertainment). Same goes for the old nostalgic Disney feature-length cartoons, including loud spontaneous sing-along. What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams is arguably one of the most beautiful movies ever. A.I. is another favorite of mine. Also, I saw Moulin Rouge more than 15 times before I stopped counting.
I have boycut the Harry Potter movies since the first three disappointed me terribly. Told you I was a fanatic.
Scrubs, House, The Big Bang Theory, Being Human, True Blood (though I wish they would move the damn fangs to the right tooth), Futurama and How I Met Your Mother. I have yet to watch enough Firefly.
Acting is my passion, so movies and TV shows can have a sucky story if they have talented actors. Vice versa I don't care for great stories that are performed badly.
I sing a lot of classical music, so when I get home I listen to System of a Down, Rammstein, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Evanescence and other similar bands, and of course Tenacious D. My newest passion is Amanda Palmer (including The Dresden Dolls & Evelyn Evelyn). Also some Tom Waits; Jesus Christ Superstar; Sweeney Todd (the original with Angela Lansbury) and other musicals. The Danish musical Treasure Island by Sebastian (based on R. L. Stevenson's book) is also a favourite of mine since it embraces music, pirates and sailing all in one (I am in love with the sea). But in reality I rarely listen to music since I get too absorbed in it to do anything else, even if it's music I dislike.
Mmm! I'm a food-addict and you won't hear me saying no to much anything if it's edible. But mint-flavoured ice cream or a New York Carnegie Deli cheesecake beats everything. However, I've recently realised that I need to start counting my calories if I wan't to live beyond the age of 50 ...
2. Books, especially The Harry Potter series and my BoS.
3. My toy hippopotamus named Hippo Jr. My mom made His "uncle" named Hippomatotos when she was pregnant with me, so he was actually a bit older than me. But then I went ahead and stupidly lost him a couple of years ago (I will never forgive myself!), and after much begging and pleading my mom actually found the knitting-pattern and made me a copy which she gave me last Christmas. I still miss Hippomatotos, but Hippo Jr. fills a bit of the void. And yes, you're allowed to think I'm crazy for caring so much about yarn, but I do!
5. Music - cliché but true.
6. My parents who are annoying and supportive. Though I shall have to find out whether I REALLY can't do without them eventually. Sad, but true.
