Ok, so I pop in after over a year of no longer using the sight and within 5 minutes I find an anime I want to watch. So I guess I should pop in more frequently then eh?

I was born and bought up in the West Country in England and after meeting my husband here on the a-p forum and realising he wasn't a mincing, boy hungry peadophile and/or rapist, married the fella. I now live in Oregon, which is unfortunately full of hippies and sports fanatics. When not dodging these unlikely sorts I find myself looking for work and enjoying the longest holiday of my life: waiting for citizenship. I like the US but miss the UK, most noteably the accent and the food. I also wish all American's didn't abuse the word "like" in every day conversation, like sod off already.
Weird things about me:
I used to think that eyelashes didnt grow back until consoled by my GCSE science teacher that I was not going bald at the eyes
I still believe that there are four types of grape vines:- seeded black, seeded green, non-seeded black, non-seeded green.
I once dressed up as an orange monk, chanting "I am an orange, I am an orange. Do you laugh? If you don't see anything to laugh at, pretend you see it, then laugh" for several hours.
I have a genuine fear of midgets.
Things I like (par anime): Music (massively), mainly jazz and experimental rock, some singer/songwriter and elcectronica, reading, playing computer games, 19th century French & Russian art, Japanese culture and history, foreign films, stand-up comedians and learning.
Things I don't Like:
The Olsen Twins, hairy women ( I have a fear of them too, but it's not genuine), girls who aim a camera at anything, develop it in black and white and claim themselves a photographer - yeah, ofcourse you are, football hooligans, people who fire me and ants.
