Of butterflies and illflowers.

15 January 1983
and is it true, that devils end up like you
something safe for the picture frame?

(Tori Amos, She's your Cocaine)

A few short, and rather random, things about me:
I paint, sketch and draw... and every so often people give me money for it. I'm not pretty but not completely repulsive either. I drink too much wine and whisky and I have recently discovered coffee. I rather like cooking and I think I'm pretty good at it. I'm far fonder of the little pleasures in life than I should be. I adore buying and reading books. I used to be fairly good at archery.
Oh, and I'm a mad person.
