My self-summary
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- hopefully!

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, sometimes grey.

I was born and raised Catholic, but I don't really believe in it.

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 same as it is here, so feel free to send me an orangered if you're around!

I'm not sure what else to say, and I don't want to say too much, so go ahead and ask me!
What I’m doing with my life
That's a good question, actually. Jesus, what AM I doing with my life?!
I’m really good at
Being cute, I guess?
The first things people usually notice about me
My height? Or..my eyes? Or how I'm almost always laughing and smiling.
Or my boobs. Probably my boobs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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)
Six things I could never do without
My notepad
My pens
My sense of humour
My polo mints
My camera
My treasure box. (no, not a euphemism!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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
Sitting at home with some good music and Reddit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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 more views.
You should message me if
You're vaguely interested.
What's the worst that can happen, right?
The two of us
