Song you listened to: “This Unavoidable Thing” by Evermore

Thing you Googled: “Red Sox merchandise UK”  I can buy a figurine of Jon Lester or Brandon Workman (??? Really???) but I can’t get an Ortiz tshirt in this bloody country.  JFC.  #firstworldproblems

Drink: Lemondade flavoured Nuun


Best friend: Annette.  We’ve been besties since we were like 6 years old.  So like 34+ years.  Insanity.

Sport you joined: I wasn’t allowed to play sports when I was a kid, but I did play on an adult softball league for a few years before I moved to Scotland

Vacation outside the country: London, London, London.  Did I mention London?  :)


Lost someone special: Ummmm, duh.  

Been depressed: Since like forever.  I have treatment-resistant depression.   I’m still trying to find a med or combination of that actually works.  Whether this ever happens, I have no idea.

Been drunk and thrown up: Just once.  I am a huge emetophobe, so I tend not to drink much as a general rule.  But this one time when I was a freshman I got totally wasted and was SO drunk I thought it was a good idea to make myself throw up.  That was when I knew I was completely fucked off my tits.


Made a new friend: Yes!  :)  (You know who you are!)

Laughed until you cried:  Probably not.

Met someone who changed you:  Erm, no, I can’t say that’s happened.


What do you like about yourself?:  ummmm…….

Biggest flaw:  I’m controlling, jealous, and petty.  I also have a hard time communicating and always think that people hate me, think I’m crazy or a loser, and a waste of space.  I never know when to shut up.  I communicate poorly.  I have a terrible self-image.  I don’t know how to make friends in real life.  I get attached easily.  When I like something, I get obsessed with it and go overboard.  I always think things are about me, even when they’re not.  Oh, that’s way more than one, isn’t it?

Zodiac sign: Libra

Hogwarts House:  ummmm idk tbh


Average hours of sleep: 7-10 depending on the day and whether or not I’m having anxiety/insomnia issues

People you know on Tumblr in real life:  I’ve met @saziikins and @deathbygatiss in the past year.  :)

Time you woke up this morning: Like 10ish.  The post arrived and it sounded like a bomb going off when the bacon-by-post and coffee delivery arrived and crash-banged through the mail slot.


Do you get asks on a daily basis?: I don’t even get them on a monthly yearly basis HA HA HA 

What do you post about?: Mark Gatiss.  Seriously.  Have you seen my tumblr?  (And Rupert Graves and Mystrade and cats).

How long have you had this blog?: a few years, maybe 3 or 4?  I’m not really sure.  When I started it, it was mostly about David Tennant, so it could be even longer, but I’m not sure.


You wish you worked and lived in:  London.  When I am finished with my PhD in September I will have a better idea if that is feasible.  I’d take anywhere in the UK at this point, tbh.  I don’t really want to go back home, but I do understand and appreciate the realities of the situation and the fact that getting a work visa will be extremely difficult and unlikely, but a girl can dream, right?

Dream job: Teaching/Working with young people who have been bullied to help them get back on their feet. 

Something you cannot wait for: Finishing this fucking PhD and taking a vacation when I am done.  


If you want to, go for it!  :)
