About MeHey. Keen reader of non-fiction material (as opposed to fiction - though I felt guilty for succumbing to the charms of 'Twilight' and 'Harry Potter'!). Avid music lover - whether it be listening to lots of different music (my fave band/act of all time is Nirvana!), or just checking out live shows. I'm a fairly competent guitar player myself, but that's just something for my own personal enjoyment. My initial reason for picking up a guitar to start with at age 15 was actually to learn how to play Nirvana songs - mostly the songs on their LP 'Nevermind'. I expanded my playing repertoire over time, incorporating Bob Dylan, David Bowie, KT Tunstall, ABBA and many more! Now that I've parted ways with my TV, I have more time freed up to enjoy more of the wild, rugged outdoors (weather-permitting, given that I live in a traditionally rainy land!). This is a complimentary counterbalance to my rather desk-bound professional work otherwise... I've had some paranormal experiences to date, though nothing too horrifying, thankfully! I still consider myself a novice when it comes to understanding the paranormal world though. Curiosity pushed me to explore esoteric subjects like astrology, numerology and palmistry from a relatively young age, for some unknown reason. I'm able to construct and interpret charts for people, though I keep quiet about it. I realise that the majority of people simply aren't interested in that stuff, or lend any credence to its 'usefulness', and I respect that. I've read people's palms for expressly 'entertainment purposes' on the odd occasion in the past. I seemed better at reading people's pasts than their futures, haha! Anyway, I would never like to be defined by having some offbeat interests like those... No-one in my family gives a damn about anything paranormal or esoteric. As far as I'm aware, I was definitely NOT an adopted child! :-/ :-) Random fact: I can sing the alphabet in French, haha. One of my all-time fave movies is 'Inception'. Other films I've really enjoyed were 'Captain Phillips', 'The Place Beyond The Pines', 'Doubt', 'The Bodyguard' (yeah, sue me!), 'The Adjustment Bureau', 'Juno', 'Byzantium', 'Flight' (2012 Denzel Washington film), 'The Great Gatsby' (2013 remake), 'One Hour Photo' (AMAZING performance from the late Robin Williams!), 'The Dark Knight', and loads more I won't bore anyone to also mention here! My favourite colour is azure-blue. I've been a vegetarian since I was 13 (I just don't like meat's taste, plus I really care about animals). I swear like a drunken sailor sometimes, haha. I once read about some scientific research finding that swearing actually helps people feel less pain! Well, there you have it - I'm swearing for the love of science and pain relief! I'm a 'Night Owl' by nature (I tend to be more naturally alert and 'alive' in the evenings/night-time), although that can have both its upsides and downsides! My fave type of weather is vibrant sunshine, with intense heat (approx. 30 max.) and a gentle breeze. Right, that's enough dumb shit about me!
