... it's not all a bed of roses ...

i don’t like:
- science, creepy crawlies, no internet, academic referencing, studying for exams
- lack of sleep, shopping for shoes, the wwe, censorship
- malaysian drivers, creepy old men hitting on much younger girls, rudeness, overzealous evangelists, unfriendly and over-friendly customer service people

i particularly loathe:
- greed & corruption
- prejudice, bigotry & close-mindedness
- inequality & injustice

smoking annoys me
drug addiction disgusts me
murder upsets me
rape disturbs me
death of loved ones sends me into long-term depression
animal cruelty infuriates me.
and twilight bores me

* ~ *

... having the final say ...

i suffer from chronic hypochondria & verbal diarrhoea
i'm aggressively allergic to snobs, bigots & chauvinist pigs

on a good day, i'm as chatty, perky & wired as a cheerleader on crack
on an okay day, i'm temperamental & complicated
and on a bad day ... well, you'd best avoid me on a bad day

music fills my soul
pictures create my life
words ARE my world

i'm an unlicensed, unregistered schizophrenic.
my personalities change according to my mood.

this is who I am
take it or leave it

Quotes I live by:

"Life is not meant to be taken seriously ... seriously!"

"There are 3 kinds of people in this world ... those who want things to happen, those that make things happen, and those who just wonder what the hell happened!"

"If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried."
