Do you, Are you, Is there...

Have you ever said you would never love again?
Nope, if it's ever gone wrong I just want it to go right the next time lol.

Have you heard a song today that reminds you of somebody?
Not sure really, not that I can think of!

Do you believe in forever?
Not really...I think 'forever' is unconceivable so pointless promising.

Do you apologize first?
Usually!

Has someone made a promise to you and broke it?
Yeah.

Do you like your name?
Yeah I do actually! :)

Have you ever disliked someone just because a friend disliked them?
Probably? But I take people on experience so if I like them then I like them!

Which would you rather own: A camera or a video camera. Why?
A camera, I love photographs...and alot of cameras can record now :)

Have you ever won a lot of money in a slot machine? How much?
Maybe like 3 quid or something.

Do you watch sport on TV even though you aren’t a sporty person

yourself?
I do actually, but not religiously.

Do you eat / drink at your computer?
I guess yeah, no grubby fingers on my white laptop though!

How much do you overeat at special occasions? (Birthdays, Christmas,

etc)
Oh god, loads, all the time lmao.

The music you listen to: Is it mostly sung by female or male

vocalists?
Quite a nice mixture of both but I imagine male.

Do you think it’s important to enjoy your job or do you just work for

money?
Well I'd like to go to work to earn a decent wage either way, but it's nice to enjoy your job!

Do you require glasses/contacts to see properly? If so, which do you

use?
Nope.

Tell me an embarrassing thing that happened to you recently?
Can't think of anything specific, as a shy person you spend a lot of time embarrassed!

When you hear your voice back on a recording, do you think it sounds

awful?
I think I talk too fast and sound like I have a bad cold lol.

When was the last time you got the hiccups?
I had a couple a few days ago I think.

If you had to, which record would you go into Guinness World Records

for?
Jeez...not sure actually!

The last sweet thing you ate: What was it?
I had a breakfast biscuit?

If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?
I don't think I would to be honest.

Do you have a middle name? Do you find it embarrassing?
Yes I do, and yeah I'm not amazingly fond of it!

What would you choose to be famous for?
My art!

Do / Did you enjoy school? Why (not)?
I didn't mind school really, I think I enjoyed it because I got to see my friends more than anything else. I can't really remember a whole lot about the lessons in general so they must have been bearable!

If you have a webcam, are you ever paranoid people can see you?
No, but should I be? *hunts for masking tape*

Do you find it difficult to sleep at night? Any reason(s) why?
I do at the moment, being unemployed means your brain is pretty deflated all day and it's hard to switch off at night 'cause it's at that constant meh...but that should change soon!

If you had to go on a game show, which would you choose?
Maybe Pointless :) Though Tipping Point looks fun lol.

What about if you had to go on a reality show? Which would you choose

then?
Something dull...like actual reality not a 'reality show' which is faked and over-dramatic.

Tell me about your favourite TV show:
Not sure what that is at the moment! I have too many. I guess the latest show I've started watching is Under The Dome. It's based on the Stephen King novel of the same name and is about a town in America that suddenly gets enclosed under a dome with an electrical charge. My mum's read the book and I think the series is changing the ending, but we'll see how much they deviate from the original story! At the moment we're 2 episodes in and I already hate 2 characters (as I'm sure you're meant to but ugh) but we'll see how it goes :)

If you had dental braces, which colour would you make them?
I had a kind of brace when I was young that was pink, but not the 'on your teeth' ones so I dunno...whatever colour I fancied at that time!

Does any part of your body hurt right now? Where and why?
Yeah my back is a little achey, and my knees and feet are throbbing from all the walking today!

Have you ever found the jokes in Christmas crackers genuinely funny?
Yes...I think I'm the only person who does lol <3

Why were you last irritated?
I get cranky when I'm tired and walking about so maybe today, but it didn't last long lol.

What time did you get up this morning?
5:30am! *sobs* Haven't done that for a loooooong time!

The last city you were in: Where was it and do you like it there?
Cardiff was the last city I visited! Today! It's quite nice there, same as most large UK cities really, but it feels chilled out there so that's nice.

Do you like the countryside?
Yeah it's nice :) Love seeing it fly past when I'm on a train, don't get to see it myself 'cause it's hard to get to without a car!

If you see someone yawn, do you often yawn as well?
Yeah most of the time!

Recommend me a good movie:
Music and Lyrics!

Do you think you’d make a good model? Would you ever want to be one?
No way lmao. I'm not that photogenic at all.

How often do you change your hairstyle? What does it look like now?
I used to change it all the time, but it's been pretty much the same undyed style for about 3 years now! It's short one side with a lil sideburn, and gradually longer on the other side...Dark brown.

Do you have a favourite day of the week? Which is it?
I don't know any more.

Are you alone?
I am!

Have siblings?
Nope.

When is the last time you were on the phone after 2 am?
Can't really remember, last year?

I guess...didn't you ask this already?

When is the last time you were Really angry?
I don't get really angry very often lol.

Last movie that made you cry?
Frankenweenie was very close!

Worst Dare you have ever done?
Can't remember doing any, other than lick someone's cheek lol.

First Crush?
Scott Robinson from Five!

Did anyone upset you today?
Nope!

What do you think the person you like is doing now?
Watching? Or maybe he's put his PS3 on now...

When is the last time you did something you knew was wrong?
Bought a Gromit oven-mit Thursday, but I didn't realise it would be as wrong as it was lol.

Do you hate the last guy/girl you had a thing with?
No, noone who treats you that way is worth the passion of hatred.

Do you have a curfew?
No I'm 24...

Did the one person who hurt you the most in your life apologize?
Yeah but I took it with a pinch of salt, it's easy to say Sorry when you don't really mean it.

What was on your mind most today?
If my man was still behind me while I weaved through the crowd!

Have you ever thought about getting your lip pierced?
Yes. I have my top lip pierced already, but I've wanted my labret pierced since I was about 12! For some reason I've never had it done, but I guess most of my piercings have been on a whim...

Have a best friend?
I have 2!!

Are you in a good mood right now?
Yep! Getting sleepy now though.

If you were upset, who’ s the first girl you would go to?
Well myself to be honest...but I guess my mum is here if I was that distraught!

Procrastinating about everything.

I can't remember anyone yelling at me to be honest, not in a long time!

Is the last person you kissed, the next person you will kiss?
Better be! <3

Of course they are, it's all experience isn't it...

Of course it did! It meant 'bye baby, see you soon' lol.

Got up early and left to get the bus, then got the train, met my man on there then got to Cardiff, met Noah, April and Ian and went off to the Cardiff Comic Con! :D Then after a long trapse round we went back to the bus station, then when they left me and Kev walked up to the grass by the castle to chill for a few hours then we got the train back! Got home just before 8pm.

What did last weekend consist of?
It was the bank holiday weekend to relaxing and eating I suppose!

Will you be in a relationship next month?

Not at this particular moment lol! Probably there is though.

No I don't think so, maybe I regret procrastinating so much but meh.

Do you miss the way things used to be between you and someone else?
Sort of but it's in the past isn't it.

Your favourite subject to study

http://planetgroupentertainment.squarespace.com/storage/FridaKahloPaintingInBed.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1288718143665

This is a hard choice, but I guess Art. I mean I was always more interested in doing art than learning about dadaism and impressionists, but the artists I really felt a connection with I loved learning about! And I guess I did learn a few damn good things artistically from studying art at school and college lol.

I adored the learning I did for projects mainly, where it was artists I was interested in researching and not some dull Jackson Pollock crap where we had to learn how this coloured block means such and such...
I chose an image of Frida Kahlo 'cause I've loved her work since my school days, I remember working on something and my teacher said to me "You'd like Frida Kahlo, hang on..." and went and got me one of her art books for me to look at (which I still have actually...oops!). I fell in love instantly, knowing that this artist was the same as me inside, putting her emotions so bluntly onto the page that it felt almost intrusive to look at it...I loved it, and I still do to this day! Dali as well I'd like to throw in here :)
I've also chosen this photo because it's 'historical', and I feel like now I'm older and out of school I would love the opportunity to learn more about history. I never enjoyed it at senior school, maybe because I didn't enjoy the way the teachers taught it, or I was too wrapped up in my own world...the only time I seemed to care was when I got an A for a poem I wrote about the war in Year 9...
I adored learning about the Tudors and Greeks in primary school, I really did...but unfortunately most of it has just slipped out of my head and that pains me. I would love to have kept all that information.
I hate that I didn't enjoy history at the time, I would love it now. It's so gory and full of passion and revenge and death and fear...and I just wish school would have put that into my head.

But hey ho!

No, I don't! But I think glasses look nice so I don't know why people would risk eye surgery when glasses are stylish and come in so many different looks these days! They're just another accessory! But hey ho.
This photo is me wearing April's glasses on our way to see Zebrahead in 2008 :) also her bag I'm guessing 'cause I have no recollection of that bag lmao.

Don’t call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease!

Me and Kev had a nice bank holiday weekend!
When we got back to mine we started our long and drawn out evening of cooking our delicious roast dinner! :D Chicken, crunchy roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings, stuffing balls and Kev's special gravy lmao! <3 It was delicious!
Unfortunately a massive spider showed up right next to where I was sat on the floor and ruined my appetite, but I'd demolished pretty much all of it already so it's all good...the bastard lol.

I missed the photo op for the food too.

Then the next morning we got up and had some breakfast, then we packed up some home-made sandwiches, the cupcakes, a drink some snacks etc, and got on the bus up to the park!
It was lovely there, nice and sunny, quite busy but not ridiculous, and there were squirrels, ducks, pigeons, swans and lots of inquisitive dogs enjoying everything lol. We sat in the shade of a tree a little up from the large pond and watched everything going by while we ate our goodies :)
We kept the crusts from our sandwiches and fed them to the swans that came up and wrecked the ducks party lol, bless 'em. I did throw some to them too though :) The signets were almost full grown I guess but still that lovely browny grey colour <3

Here's some photos :)











So after we got back we chilled out for the afternoon and then we had a nice nap 'cause I was so sleepy lol and Kev can sleep for Britain :P So we got up about 7 and went down the chippy for some yummy takeaway, and then we put Star Wars Episode 4 on!!

I've never watched Star Wars, I need to get that out there, 'cause everyone finds that baffling lol, the only one I've seen was Phantom Menace at the cinema when it came out and that's all I know!
So we watched that...a couple of minutes in and I fell in love with R2D2 lol! <3 He's amazing! C3PO too of course, but R2D2 is so awesome! <3

http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090524204257/starwars/images/1/1a/R2d2.jpg

I have a problem with over-personifying inanimate objects*, and he's just like a dream come true lol <3 *I wouldn't class it as a problem really, but it does make throwing things away HARD lol.

Han Solo is brilliant too, I really thought they were going to be just plain ol' action movies that were a bit bleh but in space...but no, they're really witty and I love that! It's a shame to have missed out on it all these years, but I've always been late to the good things lol so I can't be blamed, my internal wall needs to be blamed!
Anyway, we watched Episode 5 as well, but we didn't have time for Episode 6, so I'll watch that when I go to Kev's next, and then hopefully we can get hold of 1-3 as well! :)


So today I had to go to the Jobcentre, so Kev came with me and then we detoured through town to get to the train station! And we made a compulsory stop at Krispy Kreme, yay! <3




We had some food in Wetherspoons and then Kev got the train home...aww :) <3 Loves that man!

Next expedition - Cardiff Film and Comic Con with Kev, Noah and April! :D (and maybe Ian and his girlfriend? lol no idea) Can't wait for next weekend!

Do you drink soda more often that milk?

http://www.needgreatinfo.com/image/big_soda.jpghttp://livingwellatuhn.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/glass-of-milk.jpg

So I'm going to take 'soda' as the American term for fizzy drinks? 'Cause otherwise we have nowhere to go here as I HATE actual 'soda'...ugh *shudders*

Umm...I think I probably drink more milk? I have cups of tea and I have cereals often, where as I go through a 2 litre bottle of Lemonade in a week or more I suppose. And when I'm travelling I usually try and get orange juice if I can.

But yeah...so I have more milk...but I love both to be honest!

Something you couldn't live without

Ahh, the internet.

Now of course this comes after all the obvious things like breathing, eating, conversation, laughter, human contact etc...but in a fun way I thought this is one of those things that we all rely on so much. I mean hey, you're reading this because I can put it on the internet!!
It's part of our every day life now, how many of your interests would you have if you hadn't been about to look them up online? I think very few.
So yeah...as a fun overall look at the internet I chose Grumpy Cat, Facebook and Youtube lmao.

Hope this is enjoyable!

We'll be burning up like Neon Lights

Today I decided to make some more cupcakes! I thought with the weather being nice this weekend for the Bank Holiday that maybe me and Kev could go have a picnic, so of course, we need cupcakes! So here we go! :) 
The origin of the idea came from finding some neon sugar at Tesco (see the last photo) which I got way too excited about, so I had to do coloured icing to match!
Again they are vanilla and fudge cupcakes with icing and fudge pieces on top, now with neon sugar sprinkes! <3

Well, to be honest I really like these boots! Unfortunately there are a hell of a lot of fakes out there that make them look cheap and tacky and for pregnant chavs with swollen feet...BUT...the real ones are expensive and really nice!
I remember a really long time ago (around 10-12 years?) before they were that popular me and my mum were in a Surfer shop in Cornwall and they had some imported from Australia, like £150, and they were gorgeous, and my mum really wanted a pair but couldn't justify paying that much...so I always associate them with cool laid-back surfer shops lol. I especially like these grey ones :3

Celebrations and Cupcakes!

So having gained employment *teehee!* I had to celebrate!
On Tuesday I decided to make some cupcakes (are they called fairy cakes when there isn't a swirl on top?) and they came out a lot nicer than planned! <3 I'll put in a couple of photos :)




They are vanilla and fudge cupcakes, with pink icing and fudge pieces sprinkled on top :) They came out really pretty!
I have some fancy cupcake cases that I've been keeping for Noah's birthday, but I thought I'd better experiment first before wasting them! So I'm more than ready for his birthday now :)

On Wednesday Kev came to mine and me, him, mum and Kelvin went up to Atomic Burger to celebrate my job-gain! :D It was sooooo tasty, I had a Daisy Duke (as usual) which is Bacon, cheese, and BBQ sauce on a beef burger...mm-mm-MM! <3 Delicious! Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of it, I was too excited to want to eat it lol, but I did take a photo of our dessert! Which was a shared little camp fire with a bowl of marshmallows to toast! Yum! Also me and Kev had milkshakes which were gorgeous :)



Also this dude was staring at me the whole time...owwwwwwwwwwwwch!



So it was a nice couple of days :) and I get to see Kev again Sunday for a few days so that will be lovely! Might do a bit of baking too, I'm wanting to make Scones, seeing as my grandma made them amazingly lol! I might give them a go :) Or me and Kev might cook a roast dinner. We'll see!


I took my documents and info down to the Recruitment place today, but it will still be a couple of weeks before I hear anything about a start date *sigh*

I also bought my first Christmas prezzies online today! Go me! I know it's ridiculously early, but they were cheap and I couldn't resist. So yeah :3

Your favourite cartoon/anime character


Tank Girl!
Ok I guess I cheated a bit, seeing as Tank Girl isn't really a cartoon/anime character...or not in an animation sense! I'm relatively new to the world of Tank Girl, but I love her as a character so much, she's just completely barbaric and I love that! <3
This image in no way captures her personality, which is a little sad, but it's only a challenge piece and I have intended to do more fan art of her anyway...so yeah...no biggy I guess!
Maybe another entry on this chick is needed! <3

Your favourite Disney Princess movie

Hard choice so I'll pick the following two!

http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120625003634/disney/images/9/90/The-Princess-And-The-Frog-poster.jpg

The Princess and the Frog
I think Tiana is a pretty cool princess, when I first saw the film she was a bit of a drag, always going on about her restaurant and all that lol, but I've really grown to like her. And of course, the rest of the cast are amazing <3 I love Lottie, she's amazing, the Doctor is fantastic and I'm really glad they have a voodoo character in Disney now! And of course, Ray, he's my ultimate fave, bless him <3 It's an all round good ol' fashioned Disney animation! <3
http://uk.movieposter.com/posters/archive/main/63/MPW-31985
Beauty and the Beast
I've always adored Beauty and the Beast, since it came out, and I love Belle's character; head in a book, standing up for her beliefs at all the times :) This film is full of fantastic songs and characters! I love Lumière and Cogsworth, and of course Mrs Potts and Chip! Gaston is amazing, he's such an arrogant know it all that you just can't help but love lol! And the Beast is beautiful, I love him so much, he's just such a good character design, he looks amazing, and after watching some of the extras of their initial designs you can see all those little ideas that really make him. I wanna watch it now lol!

Other Disney ladies that deserve a mention or that aren't actually on the list are Meg from Hercules (tragic-souled character!), Jasmine from Aladin (who stands up for her beliefs), Giselle from Enchanted (who I just LOVE to death <3 and should probably be more prominent on my list), and Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire (that is a fab character, lovely build for a Disney girl too!), so there's my other little shout outs :) I just love Disney!

Something with your favourite colour



So I suppose my favourite colour is Red. And when I think of the colour red I think of my character Dresden! So I decided to draw her! I'm really happy with this actually, I think she's come out looking really cute! I love this girl :) <3

...but home is nowhere

So after my last little 'life' entry about my awful interview experience I left to go to the Job Centre for my usual sign-on...and while I was on the bus I had the phone call from them about the interview, and I thought 'oh here we go, more feedback to take in for next time' but he offered me the job! :D
I GOT A JOB!

Go me! :D
Now I'm just waiting for someone from their jobs department to contact me about taking my information down there, and then we can arrange a start date! Exciting! :D
I'm really nervous, 'cause it's a new job, new people etc...but I think it will be good. I'm looking forward to it at the same time as bricking it. So we'll see what happens! :)
It's an Outpatient Clerk job, so it's prepping clinics and finding people's medical records as well as covering the reception! It's in the Sleep and Respiratory department I think, so that should be interesting :) I think I'll enjoy hospital work just 'cause I'm intrigued by illnesses lol! Nah, it will be a good job either way...but still.
I'm looking forward to being employed again! Just the small things like having a routine, being able to diet or something, being able to read more every day, having conversations, using my brain, having a regular sleep pattern lol...and not feeling like a lazy bum!
Anyway...I am employed. Yay! :D

Tell us your favourite junk food


Burgers and chips!
I do love a good burger <3 I heard there's somewhere in Bristol that sells burgers with bacon and peanut butter, which needs to be tried at some point!
I have a bit of an obsession with chips, they are probably my favourite food if I thought hard enough lol, but I love potatoes in general! Crisps! Hash Browns! Chips! Roasters! Yum! <3 I have a post card on my wall that says 'Happiness is regular sex and potatoes' lmao, tis true.
The photo above is from our last meal from 'Vanoosh' before April and Noah moved from near there. It was delicious as always lol, and I do kind of miss Vanoosh! But where they are in Swansea now had yummy fish and chips close by, and there's takeaways to call anyway :)
I guess my fave filling is cheese and bacon...who would love anything else?!
The best addition is a chunk of coleslaw and onion rings on the side...but that's optional really lol!
Looking forward to our trip to Atomic Burger tomorrow to celebrate me getting a job! <3
I do love pizza as well, but I think burger and chips is one of those meals that's always pleasing! Pizza can get filling really fast, with all that bread, but nah...burger and chips...perfection <3

Do you have siblings? Talk about them, or talk about what it's like to be an only child.
https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/projects/39484/photo-full.jpg?1309227154
Technically I have 2 half brothers and 2 half sisters on my father's side, but I have never met them.
Charlie, the eldest is now following in our father's footsteps and has become a tattoo artist, which is depressing to say the least, 'cause that should have been me lol...but I guess I can't grumble. And when I saw Rosie, the eldest girl at his funeral she looked just like me but younger...it was surreal! Not sure how old she is now though.

But, in general life, I am an only child!
I don't really know if I fit that whole spoiled brat category that people put us in, maybe I do...
I know I've always been shy, and that might have something to do with it, but it also could be down to not having a father figure. I think not having a strong male figure in your life makes a lot of difference. But I don't feel disappointed or let down by being an only child, it doesn't bother me in the slightest! I suppose I'm not one for sharing so much, but I am a very generous person, so I guess I don't share but I give a lot. Which is nice really!
I don't know if I'm any better off or worse off for being an only child, it makes me a lot closer to my parents than a lot of people I know I suppose...


Anyway. I'm proud to be an only child :)

Day 6
Something you've never drawn before


I feel like I've cheated with this one, offering a screenshot of an early WIP...BUT, I decided that because I want to start the 30 Day Monster Girl Challenge eventually, that I would do Day 1 - Harpy as my 'something you've never drawn before'! But alas, I cannot face those feathers for a while, so I'll just give you a WIP and then I'll finish it later on but I can still carry on with the Drawing Challenge.
Hope this isn't too much of a cop out!

Four candles Fork Handles

Well that was a disaster!
Went for an interview this morning, ended up at the wrong hospital building and by the time I found where I had to be it was dead on when I was due to start the interview! So I went straight in and started as soon as possible 'cause I didn't want to keep them waiting but ugh, it's so humid out there today, and pissing down with rain, so it was horrid.

Maybe the questions went ok? I'm not really sure. I don't think I will have got it though.
But just in case, keep your fingers, toes and eyes crossed for me!

Not to get some dinner then I gotta go back out to the Job Centre which is bullshit 'cause she'll just look at what I've done online, say it's ok, make me apply for something and then send me on my way.
Then I'm doing a course from Monday on Customer Service, so that's something new for my CV I suppose.

Ugh, I'm fed up of being unemployed! I want a job and money and a routine!
At least I'm getting some art done huh (even if no one will pay me for any!)

30 Day Drawing Challenge
Day 5
Your favourite outfit



I've had this little bandage-looking skirt for a while now but I've not really had the guts to wear it! I bought it in one of my 'fuck it, there are fatter girls out there wearing worse than this!' moments, but I'm still a bit too shy for it...but soon...'cause I think it looks nice when I've tried it on...it's just been too hot along with the shyness to actually wear it. So yeah...one day soon I might venture out in it! :3


Oh and I totally did my own hair the wrong way round on Day 1...how awful!

Banging on my chest

There's something so fantastically naff and amazing about this song at the same time lol!

I've had a thing for sex songs since Another Level...blame them...and Five and Hollywood Undead do not help...but anyway...Bruno Mars...

I  think I did quite well with that selection of Mean Girls gifs from Tumblr lol...

I've never seen Mean Girls. I think I'd like to see it, and I imagine if I'd had seen it when it was 'in' I would have really liked it...but I've just never got around to it. One to add to my long long list!

Day 4
An animal that you think is cute


Red Pandas! Which are adorable and I always love to glimpse them up in the trees at Bristol Zoo! Hopefully I will see more of them at other zoos in my lifetime, 'cause they are gorgeous! And maybe if I'm lucky one day I'll be able to do the keeper experience with the Red Pandas up at Bristol Zoo! <3

30 Day Drawing Challenge
Day 3
One, some, or all of your friends

Decided to draw my Fatboys Noah and April! Not that great but it's kinda cute lol! I forgot to add any hair to Noah's leg, I was trying to figure out how I could do it while I was colouring and obviously my brain-block shut it out and didn't make me do it in the end! But yeah...my besties :3

30 Day Drawing Challenge
Day 2
Someone you like (celebrity, significant other, or crush)



Aww here's Kev :3
I was a little torn between drawing Kev and Nick Frost, then almost drew myself torn between them lmao, but I thought it would be much nicer to just draw Kev 'cause y'know, he's lush and much more important lol <3 And I can always draw Nick for a later day in the challenge :P Haha aww bless him...and luckily Kev really likes it! :D <3

30 Day Drawing Challenge * Day 1 *

30 Day Drawing Challenge
Day 1
Yourself or your persona



Here's me! I look a bit bitchy and pouty which is no good is it! But I quite like this :)
It's nice drawing on a smaller canvas with only 2 shades for each colour and a bit cartoony, makes things much quicker and is much more fun for these kind of challenges...I think I'm going to enjoy this!

30 Day Challenge 1 * Day 12 *

30 Day Challenge 1
Day 12

Your thoughts or opinions on Harry Potter

Well...where do I begin? I really do love Harry Potter.
I don't seem to have this whole 'Harry Potter saved my life' opinion that most die-hard fans seem to have...but I do have a place in my heart just for everything related.
I own tons of Potter merch if that's any kind of guide, but unlikely.


We first read the books in school when we were about 8 or 9 I think? And when I passed my SATs in Year 6 my Grandma bought me the set of 4 that were out. Unfortunately I only really got to the beginning of Prisoner of Azkaban and then I just kinda stopped, but I always knew I liked it, and when the films came out I watched all of them as soon as I could. I started reading them all again after Deathly Hallows came out and I fell in love properly!

I think my favourite character is actually Harry, but I do love Sirius as well. My favourite book was Half Blood Prince, which they translated to screen rather terribly as I feel it's the most important book, and my favourite film is probably Prisoner of Azkaban <3

Eventually I will be getting a Harry Potter tattoo to go on my film/book leg, and I'm thinking of the Snitch. I know I want quirky little things from films, but there's tons of things in the Potter universe that are quirky, but when I saw Deathly Hallows Part 1, when Harry and Ron get out of the basement when Bellatrix has Hermione, the snitch flies out of Pettigrew's pocket and up to Harry, and I just think that's adorable! I like how it has a personality of it's own and how it's connected to Harry because he was the first one to catch it...it's just so cute!

Anyway...I am a big Potterhead, and I dream of getting to go to the Harry Potter World at Universal in Florida :) One Day! At least for now we have the Studios here in England, which is AMAZING and I've already been twice lol. Can't wait to go again!

Sadly I found out it's LeakyCon this week in London...but I can't imagine anyone would go with me anyway and I don't really know what goes on there enough to know if it's worth it!

So yeah...yay <3
