I live in Southern California with my wonderful husband. My parents and I emigrated from England when I was 2. I love movies, Hollywood history, British history, Art history (medieval, Renaissance), oh, heck, I just love history in general. I collect odd bits of information and I love sharing it. Which has caused me to be called a "female Cliffie Clavin", since I'm like the mail carrier on Cheers. Except, of course, I am entertaining and people enjoy my company. Honest. Really. All my friends have decided that I am no longer allowed to visit them if they are recovering from surgery. I make them laugh too much. It's a curse and a burden :) Watching movies, reading, playing boardgames, rubber stamping, starting cross-stitch projects, meeting new people and spending time in good conversation are some of my favorite pastimes. In my world darts, bowling and air hockey are considered sports- with air hockey counting as a blood sport. Never leave a finger over the edge. I have traveled to Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, England, Wales and Fiji (for 28 hours). When we were coming over from England we made a stop in Greenland, but I don't count it, since I have no recollection of it. I'm told it was dark and bitter-cold. I am a Spiritual Atheist. Dabble in poetry. And have a habit of scribbling ideas for stories on random bits of paper. I don't do anything with them, but I feel better for it. I am petless right now. Tilda was my child-substitute, but she passed away in March 2004. I miss her every day. She was like a muppet come to life. One of my biggest pet peeves is people who pull out in front of me on the road, then drive slowly. They couldn't wait for me to fly by? Especially when there's no one behind me. Ugh- I'm upset just typing it! Must go and find dark chocolate to calm myself.... or a nice bowl of warm Bird's custard. Yes, that will work just fine.
