A. list five habits/quirks/facts about yourself
B. tag five people to do the same

One: to earn money in college I was an art model in the same department and for the same teachers and with the same students I took classes with. It was a wonderful experience and, yeah, there are bronzes and oils of me out there somewhere. I have a couple of the pastels from teachers.

Two: I talk with my hands, people imply that I must have Italian in me but, sadly, no...I'm English, Welsh and German.

Three: I find hetero love stories BOR...ING, I can only read gay now and only then if they're NOT really just hetero love stories with two guys. I probably own every gay teen coming-of-age story Barnes&Noble sells. Yeah, that's right, I like 'em young which is probably more a quirk then a fact realizing that gay teen coming-of-age stories at B&N don't have much sex.
As a side note: Lauren collects Shonen Ai which means boy love and are boy with boy manga stories...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.

Four: I have a very easy way of doing the grocery shopping list which makes it so Lauren and I can do all of it...planning the week's meal's, shopping and putting everything away in less then two hours and only once a week. I DO NOT like grocery shopping.

Five: I've come close, on more then one occasion, to leaving this fandom because of Ethan Gold, aka 'the fiddler'. I've a lot of trouble understanding the nearly universal hate, especially as expressed by people I otherwise respect, of him and have become very protective of him. Realizing how completely polar I am in how I see him has made me question if I really belong here. And yet.



I will tag
galesweetie, seanmegansean, adrtylilsecret, fansee, and lastglances. Come play.

No. 1 - WOW!! :)

No. 2 - How much do you talk with your hands? In Canada, at least in some parts, you would be thought to be French.

No. 3 - I also love male/male love stories, especially the young man coming out and into his own. One of my favourites of that genre is "Leaving Myself Behind". And one of my favourites of grown up love is "Comfort & Joy". I expect you have heard of or read both of these.

I still like stories by my long established favourite authors, but I supplement reading their books with others. When I read!!!

No. 4 - Some people find grocery shopping a chore. I guess it's part of life that can't be ignored. It's good you have a plan that keeps the shopping to a minimum.

No. 5 - not sure who Ethan is. Whether it's Ethan from the show, or Ethan/xhaleslowly (whose stories I adore) or some other Ethan. I'm glad you stayed!

2. apparently a lot because people giggle at me more then I care for and I can't even tell you how many times I've accidentally smacked Lauren when she was much smaller and always stood right next to me.
3. 'Comfort and Joy' is a big favorite, I've read it twice and actually rec'ed it to my bookclub, their first gay novel, but I really like Grimsley's 'Dream Boy'. I will check out 'Leaving Myself Behind.'
4. I hate shopping that HAS to be done, with us every Sunday week after week after week so we've made it as easy as possible. I have a friend who goes almost every day...no way.
5. I mean Ethan Gold...Justin's Ethan. I find so many stories that make him 'the villain' and I don't get it. xhaleslowly_ethan I love. I didn't even consider anyone would think I meant him. I've gone back and edited my entry to make that VERY clear.
