Various Bits of Information:

I'm 25 with a BA in Comparative Literature (19th c. British & French lit), which I will obviously use to become an opera singer. I hate pretension and people misusing the fabulous thing known as capslock speech.

I ship the following couples (in order of when I got interested):
John/Marlena - Days of Our Lives
Mulder/Scully - The X-Files
Jeff/Hilary - Remember WENN
Frasier/Lilith - Cheers
Janeway/Chakotay - Star Trek: Voyager
Doggett/Reyes - The X-Files
John/Elizabeth - Stargate: Atlantis
House/Cuddy - House
House/Stacy - House
Adama/Roslin - Battlestar Galactica

Now let's see how said couples have fared, hm?

John/Marlena - One dead. But, wait — he might be alive again, but — aw, Alice has stopped caring.
Mulder/Scully - Probably still together. Yayyy.
Jeff/Hilary - Divorced.
Frasier/Lilith - Divorced.
Janeway/Chakotay - One ended up with someone else.
Doggett/Reyes - Might have ended up together.
John/Elizabeth - One essentially dead.
House/Cuddy - Still up in the air.
House/Stacy - She left him, he left her.
Adama/Roslin - Ugh.
I think I'm cursed.

I love Victorian literature, especially Dickens, and I think monkeys are hilarious. I'd like my life to reflect God being at the center of it, but I don't think it does. I guess I should thus work on that. Makes you think.

Special Loves: Beverly Sills, my stuffed pig Pierre le Cochon Triste, Old Navy men's sweatpants, Mighty Bright booklights, women-who-seem-strong-but-are-secretly-masking-an-inner-fragility-that-could-crack-at-any-moment, Death Race, Dan in Real Life, the opening to STNG, angsty couples, driving to Mona Lisa Overdrive from Matrix Reloaded, emotionally climactic moments in musicals, hummus, pencil skirts and heels, the dance-off at Jim and Pam's wedding, the moment in Werther where Charlotte admits she's in love with him, ditto for Eugene Onegin, 1000+ piece jigsaw puzzles, paint-by-numbers (but ONLY acrylic ones).

Special Dislikes: English majors feeling the need to point out they were English majors and acting like enjoying Brontë is something special, Ralph Fiennes, Keira Knightley, Michael Clayton, The Time Traveler's Wife, people walking slowly without leaving a means of passing them, Twilight, Jack/Liz shipping in any form, Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, colored text.
