So, I don't really go in for the whole star-sign buzz, but I must admit that "Gemini" actually does describe me rather accurately. I can be two different girls, one outgoing and well-balanced, the other darker and slightly harder work - often in the same conversation, which can be confusing. I'm generally cheerful and chirpy, but, like many a tragic plant on my windowsill, I require regular attention or I'll wither away and die. Be prepared to receive a slew of messages if I get into the conversation - if you don't like talking, don't bother :)
I'm one of those people who struggles to sit still and watch a whole movie - I'm happier with my phone, Facebook, a craft project, and someone to keep me company while I watch whatever it is, than staring fixedly at a screen without moving for several hours. I work best in short, fierce bursts, interspersed with microbreaks, and I can easily be distra- oh look, a squirrel!
I'm a bit of a Facebook addict and I LOVE memes. You may catch me actually saying 'ROFL' or speaking Lolspeak. Sorry. It's just the way I am :)
I'm not Little Miss Polished - if you're looking for a plastic trophy-girl who's always perfectly turned out but has nothing to say, move along - but if you want a happy, natural girl for witty repartee and grammatically accurate conversations, send me a smile or a message - if you think you can keep up ;P
LoTR, GoT, the Hobbit, Terry Pratchett, Robert Rankin, Ian Rankin, Stephen Booth, Robin Hobb...
Rock, pop, alternative, indie, metal, folk, some country, I like most things - not a huge fan of jazz, dub or reggae, but I'll listen to it for a bit...
TV: I prefer to watch a marathon of a series once it's on DVD - Game of Thrones, Spartacus, Rome, for example
Also, I've been in love with macGyver since I was a little girl. I remember crying when I found out he'd just turned 40, because it made me realise how much older than me he was. Sigh.
Movies: Amelie, Rapid Fire, Delicatessen, The Crow, 300, Martial Arts and action movies
I regularly cook
Everything! Quick bites all the way through to 5-course meals! I love cooking :)
Cooking is like a gift I can give someone - the more I care, the harder I'll work to cook for you, and the more I'll enjoy creating something beautiful, delicious and satisfying for us to share.
I'm not a big fan of mushrooms, fish or seafood, but I love every style of food I've come across, and I love to try new dishes!
I'm a particular fan of Pad Thai, anything Italian, Greek, Indian, Iranian, Moroccan, Japanese, Mexican... I love pasta, noodles, cheese, and anything ethnic and different. I'd love to try food from places I haven't been to yet!
2. My cats
3. Good food!
4. Music - good sounds make everything better!
5. Fresh air - I hate working in an air-conditioned environment, so I get out as much as I can
I saw a meme once that said:
"Men - think of a woman's mind like a browser, with 2,715 tabs, all open at once".
I spend a lot of time thinking about how I spend a lot of time thinking, too.
(Particularly if you actually managed to read all of that ^^).
NB: I showed you mine... pic please!
