Talking fish

A little insight, then: Zoologist by education and artist by design, I find myself drawn to all things fantastical. The downside of which is a tendency to daydream, often at work --- not good if I am observed mid-glazed expression complete with dopey smile, or chuckling gently to myself smiley - blush

Despite an ongoing love affair with drawing, especially Manga, I was lured from a serene future of composing epic graphic novels and seduced by the Science Side; henceforth bound in slavery to pledge my existence to the eternal (and habitually futile) quest for KNOWLEDGE. Combining the two has proved tricky; one must inevitably face relegation to the status of 'hobby'. Regrettably drawing has assumed that dreaded rank, but a girl's gotta eat.

As patrons of the Harry Potter 6 – the Spoiler thread thread may have gathered, I love the Boy Who Lived and the complete online universe devoted to debating his future. Reading is, in general, a marvellous pursuit; one in which I indulge whenever the opportunity presents itself. Oh, if you ever read a HP fanfiction or theory that you think is brilliant beyond belief, then please let me know about it --- I am always interested smiley - biggrin

Some interesting links: the first is very apt for this time of year and relates to the role of Fly Agaric in the mythos of Santa Claus; the next involves the phenomenal works of Terry Pratchett; another relates to the marvelous Rocky Horror Show play; and the last is devoted to the novel that inspired both the Japanese and American Ring films.

Many of my friends like animals, but are completely stumped when it comes to classifying them. So for anyone reading this who thinks "Yeah, me too!" I have the perfect companion Guide entries. The first outlines Animal Classification, giving details of the different Phyla and the second details the history behind Taxonomy. I have always found this facinating, so have fun reading up on the subject.

A nod to Honorary God for this link; incidentally, the 'glorious' 12th is also the start of the pheasant season in the UK...

Your Birthdate: August 12
Being born on the 12th day of the month (3 energy) is likely to add a good bit of vitality to your life. The energy of 3 allows you bounce back rapidly from setbacks, physical or mental. There is a restlessness in your nature, but you seem to be able to portray an easygoing, sometimes "couldn't care less" attitude.

You have a natural ability to express yourself in public, and you always make a very good impression. Good with words, you excel in writing, speaking, and possibly singing. You are energetic and always a good conversationalist.

You have a keen imagination, but you tend to scatter your energies and become involved with too may superficial matters. Your mind is practical and rational despite this tendency to jump about. You are affectionate and loving - but very sensitive. You are subject to rapid ups and downs.
What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

This is quite like me, in RL so I recommend it for those of you who are bored and/or looking for a little something extra for your Space

Finally, as it seems the rage:

22 + (5 x 6) + 3 + 5 x 1 = 42

Thank you for visiting my site , well done for remaining conscious throughout my minefield of idiosyncratic ramblings
