Pusher of paper, misanthrope, overprotective mother, comic book/super hero fan, and not quite as liberal as I wish I was. I get most of my news information through disinfo.com or BBC Online because I don't trust the propaganda most mainstream channels try to pass off as truth. My dream job would involve reading, getting more tattoos and dying my hair blue. Alas and alack, I haven't yet found a paid position that affords said traits.
I'm always tired and love to travel on trains because the best, deepest, most comfortable sleeps I've had in my life were on the Eurostar and on the train from Paris to Amsterdam. Smoking cars kick ass!

Favourite words:
soubriquet, amanuensis, chimeric, facetiae, flivver, hirsute, pugilist, galoshes, fusty, misanthropic, flaneur, conundrum and bilious
