[personal profile] liv gave me an S.

Something I hate: Starting things. No really. Flippin’ heck, beginnings are scary, not least because success is never guaranteed. Starting things is the reason procrastination is so attractive.
Something I love: Shoyu. Some people call it soy sauce. Either way it is delicious and there are not many savoury foods I don’t find improved by its addition.
Somewhere I’ve been: St Kilda, World Heritage Site and essential breeding ground for North Atlantic seabirds, three hours by speedboat off the coast of Scotland. We went when I was 5.5 months pregnant with Humuhumu. This is still one of the most amazing trips I’ve ever been on. Read about it here: DW/LJ.
Somewhere I’d like to go: Singapore. Sydney. Southern Hemisphere in general. The furthest south I’ve ever been is Mombasa in Kenya.
Someone I know: Siobhan. We have been friends for many moons, and although we are separated by an ocean and a continent, I still feel close to her.
A film I like: Salt. Female action hero ftw.

Please leave a comment if you would like a letter from me!

(Oh, PS, yesterday I sent out the last batch of dragon postcards. At last. \o/ If you don't receive yours in a week or so, please let me know.)

St Kilda is on the list

As you know, we spend a lot of time on the northern isles. Westray this year!

Have you seen Haywire? Another excellent female action hero and, to my mind, a more intelligent film than Salt (though I like Salt too!).

Hello, hello! So nice to see you here again. I do miss my buzzy LJ community. It's become very quiet here. But I keep on, because I've been posting here at least once a week for almost fourteen years. I honestly can't imagine living without it. I still try to answer every comment I receive. Slightly mad, but worth it, I feel.

Please take a T if you want to participate in meme-age. :)
