I've been nosing around this place for a while now and thought I'd give it a go. So, hi, I'm Marie and I'm 34 years old, long time blogger on LJ although the big flight in the past years has affected me as well and I got lazy with posting and was guilty of wandering off to the f-place as well. But I quit a few days ago and I'm back here where I feel a hell of a lot more like home but unfortunately my f-list has dwindled. And that's why I'm here now (duh).
I have a whole big list of interests which you can easily check out in its entirety on my profile but here's a summary. I write. A lot. I write novels, mostly, but also short stories and the occasional poem and I'm an old RPer. I watch quite a few series, from Buffy over Angel to Game of Thrones, Grey's Anatomy, Castle, Criminal Minds, Bones, Being Human, Vampire Diaries and, and, and. I think Peter Jackson is a genius, and if I had the time and the money I would fly out to New Zealand right away and tell him so. Joss Whedon is one of my favourite persons along with David Levithan, who is an amazing writer that you should check out if you haven't heard of yet. Gayle Formans's Where she went never fails to make me cry, and if anyone should dare to do harm to my Anne Rice, Jim Butcher, Robin Hobb or Poppy Brite books they should be prepared to get their ass kicked quite seriously. My library takes up more space in my room than anything else. I never miss a gig by Snow Patrol when they're around and I love Finnish music as well as the insanely complicated language to bits. Ontop of that I garden a lot, I grow my own stuff and dare say I’m a good cook. I love sewing and patchworking and crocheting and knitting. If it's anything creative I will do it and I'll probably be fairly good at it because this is who I am. I have a dog named after Jasper Hale and he does sparkle in the sunshine when I put on his glittery collar (which I rarely do because he's usually quite muddy from being allowed to be a dog and no plush toy ersatz). I use lol far too often and my laptop has a name.
If you're willing to read about my life and my sometime fangirling and my writing and probably a lot about my garden, then please feel free to add me. If you plan on just lurking around and never commenting, then please don't add me because there is nothing more frustrating than spending time with an entry just to feel like you're talking to empty air.
