Intro to me

Here’s a little about me. I’m 20 years of age, married, have no children, and just bought a house. It’s impossible to tell you about myself and not mention my husband gnome. He’s the best husband in the world and he really takes care of me. So much of me has been shaped by him whether he knows it or not. For example, before I was married, I didn’t like dogs very much but since I’ve met gnome and seen what wonderful creatures dogs are, I’ve been in love ever since.

So, the best way to describe me would be to just make a huge list of things I like and stuff.

My favorites are:

Colors: Green, though I love almost any color. I like brown a lot, but usually just to wear.

Songs: What’s this? from the Nightmare before Christmas, If you want blood(you got it) ACDC, almost any song from Wicked, and a lot of songs from different musicals, Hallelujah by Rufus Wainwright, Have a little Faith in me performed by John Hiatt, Call me Al by Paul Simon, American Pie by Don Mclean, Under Pressure by Queen, Mondo Bongo by Joe Strummer, Comptine d’Un Autre Été on Amelie, and  whole lot of others that I can’t think of right now. You can listen to samples of any of these songs on These aren’t in any particular order either. Just the order I thought of them.

Animals: Dogs, cats, Penguins (great parents), elephants, Jellyfish and I like birds in general except magpies. I really like something about all animals I think and I’m really tenderhearted toward animals(more so than I am toward people sometimes) and I really only dislike mosquitoes, locusts, scorpions, and termites. I’m sure there are a few more insects and things I don’t like. I don’t mind spiders though.

TV shows: The Office, Planet Earth, Mythbusters, Trading spaces, Extreme Makeover, Extreme Makeover:Home Edition, Iron Chef America, and I used to love I *heart* the 80’s. I actually don’t watch a lot of television, but I make sure I never miss an episode of the Office or Planet Earth. The others are just shows I watch if they are on.

People: Gnome, My Mom and Dad, Adori, Fuffy, My Female Companion and I’m sure a whole lot of other people I can’t think of right now.

Actors and Actresses: James Stewart, Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Christian Bale, Joaquin Phoenix, Julia Roberts, Clark Gable, Katherine Hepburn

Movies: Amelie, Bridge to Terebithia, V for Vendetta, Beauty and the Beast, Dead Poets Society, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Bringing up Baby, Barefoot in the Park, Lord of the Rings, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe(I’m excited for the next one, Prince Caspian). There are just so many movies out there that I just love, it’s hard to choose favorites. I think I’ve pretty well named most of them though. I watched Phenomenon last night, and I just love that movie too. It’s so sad though.

Books: This list could go on forever. I love books. One of my all time favorites though is called Beauty by Robin McKinley. It’s kind of a cheesy YA fiction book about Beauty and the Beast, but I absolutely love it. I read it about once a year. I would say that I love Harry Potter more than that, but it seems that I don’t think of Harry Potter as just a book anymore, and that is sad. It’s almost becoming part of my life. And that is so pathetic. Some of the ‘classics’ I like are Jane Eyre and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. I think I mostly like the way they talk in these classic novels, it’s so eloquent. I haven’t read a book for a while and I’m up for suggestions on good ones. I’ve read the Chronicles of Narnia books, and my favorite of those books is The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The Magician’s Nephew.

Foods: Mostly, I love bread and pastries, but I don’t allow myself to have them quite as often. I love Gnome’s grilled chicken. It is absolutely amazing. I like salads, but I get kind of tired of them. I eat Oatmeal every morning, and though I wouldn’t normally claim it as a favorite, I think it’s kind of grown on me and now I would say it’s on the list near the top. Breakfast foods are really great too. I love making buttermilk syrup and waffles. I only make waffles from scratch though. I like sandwiches a lot. All kinds of sandwiches, mostly I eat tuna though. And, just like everyone else, I love pizza. I’m a big fan of soup too. I like to make and try all the different kinds of soup. There’s so many options out there. All in all, I love food and would be willing to try almost anything at least once. The only food I don’t really like is bananas. I’ve grown to like tomatoes in and on things, but I still don’t like them plain. I’m also not a big fan of mushrooms.

That’s all that I can think of for now. But I’m really an open book and I’m sure I will divulge into the intricacies of my life soon enough.
