about me

I am a firm Christian, who believes the Bible is the unerring and inspired word of God, and that Jesus Christ is His son who died for our sins (John 3:16). A homeschool-graduate, I don't condemn others who differ from me, but I do reserve the right to disagree; and while open to questions, discussions, and debates, whether they be religious or otherwise, I hope others would treat them in the same good-humoured manner that I try to maintain.

books i read
Ever since she taught me how, my mother has been hard pressed to keep me in books because I love to read. Some of my favourites are Jane Austen's Emma, Pride & Prejudice, Elizabeth Gaskell's wonderful North & South, Wives and Daughters, and last but not least Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe might very well be one of the greatest of all classic literature. Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre is also a favourite, and having gotten into Sherlock Holmes I really enjoyed The Hound of the Baskervilles. Elizabeth Gaskell and now Evelina by Frances ("Fanny") Burney is my most recent "discovery" and since they are both so under-appreciated and shamefully ignored, I have appointed myself to remedy that malady. I have an ever-increasing Reading List and I'm always open to suggestions, if you would like to name some.

things i watch
Costume dramas, such as Pride & Prejudice, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Sense & Sensibility, North & South, Wives & Daughters, Jane Eyre, to name a few; Jane Austen adaptations are one of my perennial obsessions and make regular appearances in the DVD player. Having gotten onto the North & South boat rather late, what I lack in seniority I make up with enthusiasm, and the other Gaskellian adaptations of Wives & Daughters and Cranford are also favourites. ;-) I also really like westerns, general period pieces, even the occasional crime drama, and the recent Christopher Nolan Batman franchise.

graphics i make
One of my many hobbies is graphic making. Many subjects are victims of my GIMP software; I find it incredibly relaxing and creatively satisfying. I participate regularly in quite a few icontests, I co-mod over at costume_stills, ns_stillness, costume_awards, poto_stillness, and make the winners' banner for both regency_stills and victorianstills.
