My self-summary
When it all kicks off in 'Snowpiercer' - right at the front (back) - battering ram optional. Or just quiet - & listening carefully.
What I’m doing with my life
Not enough probably. Love my job & the satisfaction it affords but have been there for too long & have ever-increasing yearning for seaside living of some description. Enjoying the company of family & friends on a regular basis but probably not going out & about enough presently. Worrying about Christmas & the ensuing rush to buy appealing prezzies for those concerned.
I’m really good at
Big cliche, but am v good at listening & trying best to give good advice & support when needed. Just like listening in general really, people do have some interesting things to say oftentimes. Making lasagne. Crosswords. Being affectionate & welcoming. Flying through the air & performing death-defying feats on my spangly trapeze in my feathers & bling (well, guess that's not strictly true but I surely wish it was).
The first things people usually notice about me
Would say maybe my friendliness (sometimes overly so which can occasionally lead to some misdiagnosis of slight lunacy - pity really!). Big hair (my friend suggested "saying" that - reminds me upon re-reading of "Hair Bear" - maybe not so fetching) & colourful, hippy-ish style? (can't be without a permanently-grafted flower {or two} in my hair - even in deep midwinter)!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All-time, tip-top films: "One flew over the cuckoo's nest" - can't beat a bit of Randle P McMurphy (or Jack Nicholson generally really), "Requiem for a Dream" (poor, poor Sarah Goldfarb etc. - so heart-wrenching), "The Road" (again, got to love a bit of Viggo). Pretty grim viewing seemingly but counterbalanced by big affection for all things Pixar / soppy also. Re-reading "The Secret History" at the moment - v compelling. Wish read more really but never seem to find the time. Guilty yet relatively eager anticipation of return of "I'm a Celebrity ...". ssshhhhh... Food - love, love, love food - am greedy guzzler of all things yum - particular fondness for Indian, Italian & French food(s).
The six things I could never do without
My dearest little daughter (well, she's 24 in actual fact but will always be my little chickadee). The friendship of people beloved, my job, endless cups of weekend tea with the crosswords, colourful / interesting people & the unknown possibilities that this world can offer up (on its more generous days).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My daughter, her happiness & imminent-ish future away from home. The endlessly-cheerful daydream (or pre-sleep dream) of living in some seaside idyll or other (any season by the sea seems to have so much to offer) - this previous, fuelled by another frequent wishful thought of winning the lottery (ha, ha- have never won more than £2.70) - one day mebbe. My mum's well-being. Long bus journeys to work afford the time to ponder people's possible activities / lives - can be fun - have to ignore the steamy claustrophobia of rush-hour somehow.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out & about, enjoying the company, chattiness & general jolliness of friends and maybe family - if a particularly fulsome evening, will generally end up with best dancin' shoes on at some establishment which isn't too over-populated by little dancing hatchlings (do love little dancing hatchlings but they can tend to make one feel a little on the decrepit side!). Then undoubtedly seeking out some revoltingly-unhealthy foodstuff or other to put the final sheen on an evening well-spent.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wouldn't half like to be Mrs David Attenborough!

(&, in a latter day way, if am allowed to be bigamous - hmmm - recent but-keenly-if-imaginarily-wished-for addition - Mrs Attenborough-Blanc - just need the "C" quadrant now ...)
You should message me if
If you feel like it I guess ... (if you've got dreamy eyes, then so much the better - am proper sucker for pretty eyes - not literally thankfully).
