Well, I read, and I write, and I do readery and writery things like working on my zine and trying to get published in lit mags...I spend way too much time on my computer wasting time on LJ and reading The Onion and playing Sims 2 when it actually works and talking on AIM...I'm working on learning accordion and learning how to knit, but sadly I don't have the resources for either here right now. And I do some photography.

TV Character: Niles Crane was my first true love and is still special to me.

<3 Six Random Facts Regarding Yourself <3
1) I took 3 years of high school German but despite my best intentions hardly learned a thing (stupid school and its inability to actually have German teachers stay for any length of time).
2) My favourite things to photograph are cemeteries and carnivals, even though both kind of scare me.
3) I have a copy of Conan O'Brien's Harvard honors thesis and a suit worn by Dave Foley on Newsradio, which I wore to prom.
4) When I was in first grade there was a beached whale near us and my class made get well cards for him and they showed mine on the news as the example. Then the whale died.
5) I'm vegeterian, Wiccan, and a damn liberal (in case you couldn't tell).
6) I've been diagnosed with mental disorders you've probably never heard of.
