I'm a teacher/journalist and mom of two wonderful girls, one 12 years old and the other is 8 . Being a cat person there are also two cats in the house: a regular housecat and a norwegian forest cat.Then there are the five hens and of course, our dog; a cocker spaniel.
I've always loved languages and that's why I chose french at the university, as well as mass communication theory. Since then I've added a master's degree in journalism and a teaching degree.
What do I like...lemme see. I'm an avid role-player along with my husband (two nerds in the family, our poor children!) and usually play once a week or so. Our system is a home-grown space opera :) I do like playing fantasy and vampire too though...happy sigh.
More? Ok. I love travelling, reading (mostly sci-fi and fantasy), cinema and spending time on the Internet doing meaningless but highly entertaining things like babble on Facebook, exchanging jokes, browse on-line shops and see what's out there. I also like writing. I write fantasy (yeah, big surprise there!) and short stories. One day I'm gonna be published...one day....dreamy sigh.
I think that's about it for now.
Katie Melua, Cesaria Evora, Queen, James Blunt, A-ha, Coldplay, Keane, Lilly Allen, Abba, 80's music.
Fantasy is what I mostly like. Mercedez Lackey, George R R Martin, Robert Jordan, Laurell K Hamilton, Tolkien, Charlaine Harris, Sherrily Kenyon (what can I say, I'm a sucker for good looking guys, romance and myths all rolled into one!), Kim Harrison, Ilona Andrews.
Also some fine authors such as Alice Sebold and Carlos Ruiz ZafÃ³n (Shadow of the Wind, what fantastic work of fiction!).
The Scarlett Pimpernell, The Princess Bride, Willow, A Fish Called Wanda, Top Gun.
Medium, SG series, Firefly, True Blood, Dexter, House, Game of Thrones.
Writing. I have dabbled in other things such as painting but it is not my strong suit although I enjoy it :) Just now discovering ATC! Looks promising :)
Let's see....what do I like. Hand-drawn/painted cards. Purple, blue, deep red. Not so much into black. Fantastical creatues, magic, fairies. Cats. Travels, languages. Vintage, books, poetry. Action, adventure and romance. Impressionism, Renoir: You were a genius :) Northern lights and starry nights. I'll probably add to this later :)
Please take note that like others I often use that last available day to finish the things I am sending as the last day to send is usually a Saturday. Here in Iceland, however, there is no mail service on the weekend. So if I put things in the mailbox on that day it will only be taken by the mailman on Monday. My postage date will therefore usually be 2 days after the date given as last day. Sorry!
Having the envelopes simply stamped instead of getting a real postage stamp on them ;)
