♥ People say I'm nice and sweet and cute. I like to argue with them but they insist it's true. So there you have it. I say I'm an absolute schmoop. It's a bit embarrassing at times but I have no problem admitting it.

♥ Fandom! I started my LJ at the height of the HP fandom and immersed myself in it completely. For a long time HP was my only fandom but over the past couple years I've branched out a bit.  Other fandomy things I enjoy are P!atD, Dr. Who, Torchwood and Merlin.  My role in fandom is that of a voracious reader, enthusiastic squee-er and occasional reccer. I greatly enjoy beta reading but don't write fic myself. I wish I could create art but alas, i cannot. 

♥ There are many people I find attractive for a wide variety of reasons. However, with every crush I have it grows increasingly obvious that I have a definite type - at least where men are concerned. I'm completely enamoured with long, lean, floppy haired wonders (generally with an accent). Colin Morgan is my pretend boyfriend husband (Kishi insisted it was time to step up our relationship). David Tennant is standing by to step in if necessary. SpencerSmith is in a league of his own.

♥ Music is my thing. I'm not particularly hip or clever about it but damn, I love it. I appreciate many, many different genres and artists and adore discovering new music. I think Snow Patrol has written the soundtrack to my life, I believe Jamie Cullum is speaking my language, James Taylor has been my go-to guy since 1988 and Stephen Sondheim is king.

♥ I'm a proud Bostonian and, despite having lived in several glorious places, Boston is my home (go you if you got that reference!). Sports are a huge part of my life and I support my local teams with a fervent passion, I proudly cheer at Sox and Pats games on a regular basis and obsessively track results via ScoreCenter. 

♥ I am a rambler by nature (as evidenced by this "brief" summation). Why say something in five words when you can say it in fifteen?

♥ I like, no, I love lists. Especially numbered ones. However, it is important to note that I do not like odd numbers, except the number 5.

♥ I overuse (abuse?) the words however and erm, ellipses and the winky smile emoticon. Apologies in advance.

♥ There's plenty more to learn about me but let's leave some mystery, yeah? My mate enjoys telling me I'm a complex woman. I think it's a compliment. :)

♥ This journal has no friending policy...friend or de-friend at will! I'm a fairly private person but I do like making new friends. So if you've wandered over here, please tell me how you found me. If I've friended you, it's likely because I like your writing. I'm a bit cautious about friending back automatically but I do look forward to getting to know you. Due to some recent ugliness, comments are screened. However please do comment to be added. :) Also, I have a house-keeping type post and a poll about my posting filers. I'd appreciate you filling it out when you get a chance! Thanks!

Still friendlyfriends over here.

Absolutely! (and maybe one day I'll have time to read all your fic!). Actually, this wasn't meant to be posted to my flist. Was just updating my intro page.

go me :)

I am the rambliest person. Like, brevity is not my thing. I have become better about it on LJ with trying to keep comments more comment-y and not like dissertations, but I like to converse and go on so that doesn't always happen. I go again.

Dude, it's been playing in my head for DAYS now.

go you indeed! :)

Brevity so isn't my thing either. Like, I don't think it ever was. I try to keep my comments concise but they often run away from me. Emails are ridiculous. And, god, talking to me? Let's just say I like to converse too. :)

Haha *high fives*

My emails get pretty crazy too. I like to muse over things, tell stories, etc. That's just me! I also like to discuss and get different perspectives on all kinds of things. I certainly didn't grow up writing emails, so short-form isn't my default. I have also had some large periods of time in which the only way to send things out was snail mail, so I got used to writing things out that way. It all started with those summers of sleepaway camps...

I can´t even. ♥♥♥♥♥, basically. Also ♥____♥ of course.

In conclusion please be my friend ;)

also, brb. I´m going to fix your post so that it actually screens comments ;)

i don't need to screen comments of people i'm already friends with. i know I'm generally LJ incompetent but for once I'd done exactly what I wanted to.

So, basically my rambly redone intro has just helped you confirm that you love me? And ♥_____♥ me, apparently? ;P

Baby, you'll have to divorce me to get rid of me.

Just saying that my reaction to this post was heart eyes. And, I guess, not that I needed much help with that :)

Well, we can´t have that happening, of course. I´m very serious about my family values, love.

Hi there!

Thanks for finding my post about Rupert Young and his appearance in "Company". It really was a fabulous show -- I'm 99% certain I'll be booking another ticket tonight :D.

But, the real purpose of my journey here was to wonder if you'd friend me? Although I'm slightly more of a Bradley/Arthur girl than a Colin/Merlin girl, both fine young men have won me over. Completely.

Hi! I'd be more than happy to friend you! I've certainly appreciated some of your pic posts and the such over the past year. I have to warn you though my LJ is largely rl ramblings with only the occasional rec or pic post. I love the boys muchly though and love having more people around that do the same!

I'm traveling to London for a few days to see both Company and Our Private Life. I'm already wishing I'd be able to see the shows more than once. Ah well!

I have to warn you though my LJ is largely rl ramblings with only the occasional rec or pic post. Ahh, but that's the joy of LJ. We first all meet through fandom and then start to learn about each other's lives and become friends in the process :D.

I'm traveling to London for a few days to see both Company and Our Private Life. How marvellous!! You're going to have a fabulous time! And if you're in the Covent Garden area, drop me a line and perhaps we can meet up for some English tea or coffee :). One of the other upsides to LJ: having friends around the world!

I love LJ for this very reason...I've met so many wonderful people who have become true friends. :)

I'm really, really looking forward to it! I lived in London when I was young and then for two years as an adult, which I absolutely loved it. I'm looking forward to coming "home" for a bit. Anyway, we're staying at Earls Court but I imagine we'll be in your area a fair bit. If not, we'll be back in August for a longer visit. :)

Hallo! I'd seen your name floating around on my flist a few times so I thought I'd come over and look around haha ^^; And you are really cool! (I generally go with the odd numbers, sorry, excepting 5.. though my favourites are even? 2 and 14 :D then 19 and 29 and 23.. okay I really like primes but uh. yeah. ANYWAYS)

My journal is an infrequently updated mishmash of fandom and rl so please don't feel obliged to add back, but I thought I should comment regardless and I do love making new friends :D haha I'm also in the Harry Potter and Merlin fandoms, though I lurk more often than not. But Korean pop has taken over my life of late.. they brought me out of my creeper shell so I'm reluctant to let go even if I'm starting to get tired and uh did I mention I ramble as well ehhhheheh ^^;; aaand yeah okay actually stopping now.

o/ oh also I am cathy :)

Hullo and welcome! Thanks for saying hi and for the compliment, even if it made me laugh as I am the opposite of cool. :) Numbers with 9 stress me out because I never learnt my 9 math facts properly. *lame* But, I could deal with 23!

So, my journal is also a mishmash of stuffs, mostly rl these days because I don't have much time. But, I like making new friends so I shall friend! Also, I know next to nothing about Korean pop so feel free to share your knowledge. :)

I usually go by IL here but also Phe (which is pronounced Fay) and variations on that. Nice to meet you!

Oh! Could I ask you to fill out this poll?

Yay for 23! I had issues when I was younger with regularity so even numbers and multiples of 5 got iffy looks from me haha.

Filled it out! :D Though choosing between the foods was hard >o< I love food.

Same issues, different responses. Love it!

Thanks! Now you shall be subjected to all my spam. :) Totally approve of your choice of chocolate, btw. i love food too.
