to be, and to go on being..


Hi, I'm Carrie! I'm 26 and I live in Birmingham, UK. Like most Brits, I am a total tea addict. :D I also love a good hot chocolate - even more so if there are sprinkles involved. <3

I'm a bit of a geek - but aren't most people these days?! ;D To be specific, I like video-games (including WoW), science, gadgets, comics, etc. I'm a huuuge Discworld fan (expect quotes), and fan of Terry Pratchett in general. Other authors I like include Philip Pullman, Neil Gaiman, George R. R. Martin, and Stephen King - to name but a few.

Some other random things about me are: I love history, especially European history. I enjoy crafting, such as knitting and crochet. I prefer hand-written letters to e-mails (but I don't expect you write me hand-written letters to contact me!) I like playing poker, and I'm pretty decent at it too. ;D I'm a big nature/animal fan, and I'll watch anything David Attenborough puts out. I like getting manicures, and head-massages. :D

I'm Catholic, and practising at that. I filter the vast majority of posts concerning my religious endeavours. Because a) not everyone wants to read about it and b) it's private and I don't want everyone reading about it anyway. :P That said, there may be the occasional mention of religion in a general context - think of this as a disclaimer.

I'd like to think that I'd make a good LJ-friend. I read all of the posts on my current friends-list and I do comment. I've just come off hiatus, with a desire to post more and be even more active-- as well as making new friends, and this seemed a decent enough place to start. :)

Read more about me over at the public-entry on my journal here! I actually recommend doing this before you add me. :)

(x-posted; apologies if you have seen this before!)
