I know that I probably should have done something to this extent when I first joined CNO. But. I didn't. So, now I had the idea randomly, and I decided to do this now.

Other odds and ends...
I'm not a fan of telly. The television's always on in my house; I dislike it. Intensely. I watch two hours of telly a week- one on Monday for Castle and one on Friday for Grimm. Although, now my parents have Beauty and the Beast on on Thursday and I sort of like it. /sigh
I'm a video gamer. That fact might surprise people a bit. Legend of Zelda, anyone? And Harvest Moon. I also like a variety of video games that people have probably never heard of like Okami, Okamiden, and the Persona series. Zelda is a battle game, although the goal is to save the world. Harvest Moon is a role play game, where you take on the role of a farmer. Okami and Okamiden are fighting to save the world again. Persona is... fighting to save the world... This is terribly tedious, but these games are wonderful.
I'm an Anglophile.
Which means that I love and appreciate British culture and etc. British things. Seriously, I just want a Union Jack pillow and I'll be pretty bloody pleased. My parents are annoyed that I go around pronouncing pasta pah-sta, aluminum al-oo-mini-um, chuffed instead of pleased, and using bloody as a replacement for expletives. I'm into British things that Americans have never probably heard of! I... I'm weird.
I'm terrible with comedy, but two [British] programmes have ensnared me. One is Cabin Pressure and the other is John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme. They are both created by John Finnemore, and I think they're hilarious.
My favourite movie [again, British] is Third Star. I wrote a review on that not so long ago, so I'm not going to repeat myself. But I love the movie. Sherlock Holmes, both movies, are my other two in the top three.
I have a Sherlock Holmes movie display in my bedroom. So, walking into my [very cluttered] bedroom, you see Robert Downey Jr.'s face immediately and Jude Law right behind him. I love it. Haha.
I also like Pokemon. Yes.
I'm a nerd, I'm obsessive over things that I love, I'm geeky and, otherwise, pretty quiet. And a bit boring. Haha.
Now, the update. Only one, actually. I have something planned for the near future, and while it's not absolutely positively for sure at the moment, it will be exciting. And I can't say anything more than that at the moment, but will update this blog again when I find out for sure.
Just be excited... There's a surprise in the making! :D
