About

Hello!

I haven't a clue what to write in these sorts of things (it's the first time I've done one), so I'll just put a lot of random facts - some interesting, some not so interesting - you decide! Good luck if you make it to the end, it's longer than I expected it to be.

My INO Credentials:
Bob Brigade Leader - "WE DON'T TAKE NO SHIT!"
Founder of C.R.A.P, Official member of the INO Captionettes, I christened Gerards Hamster - Starbuck, and set-up a new house at Hogwarts especially for MCR and INO's called SnuffleButter!

C.V.
I have a BSc 2:1 Hons degree in Animal Science, went on to study Veterinary Medicine (I've always wanted to be a Vet), but after 2 years had to withdraw cause the damn fees were too much - BAH!
Now I'm exploring my other passion which is Films, I'm currently writing a number of Films (one very inspired by The Black Parade), and have applied to go to the New York Film Academy to do a short course in Filmmaking and Screenwriting - and god I'm excited.
I have lots of other 'strings to my bow', but I won't bore you with them now.

My Heroes
These are all people who have pushed boundaries, gone further than most in pursuit of what they believe, and never let anyone keep them down:
(it's a long list, I've included my favourite quotes from each of them and this list tells you a lot about me.)

MCR (of course-incl Starbuck the Hamster - see Picture captions thread!),

ImageGREEN DAY
Punk Rock Gods
Q: Billie Joe:“A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over a garbage can and says 'That's Punk?', and I say 'No that's trendy!”
Q: Mike Dirnt:"Why are there no clouds in the sky?"
Tre Cool:"Cause God Wants to see his favorite band play again!"
ImageMICHAEL STIPE

Q:"If ignorance is bliss, why aren't there more happy people in the world?"
ImageDAMON ALBARN
Singer/Musician
Q:"The Gorillaz cartoons seem more real to me than the actual people on TV. Because at least you know that there's some intelligence behind the cartoons, and there's a lot of work that's gone into it, so it can't all be just a lie."
ImageSAM BAYER
Director
Q:"Do my guns look good on camera?"
ImageJOAQUIN PHOENIX

ImageOSCAR WILDE

Q:"We're all in the gutter, only some of us are looking at the stars."

Q:"An American Monkey after getting drunk on Brandy would never touch it again, and thus is much wiser than most men."

Q:"From quite an early age I realised the effect that good food can have on others."
I met him on my birthday 4th May in Central Park, New York!!!!!

Q:"Don't worry. Gollum isn't going to be another Jar Jar Binks."
ImageJ R R TOLKIEN

ImageC S LEWIS
Author
Q: "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
ImageJ K ROWLING
Author
Q:"It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends."
ImageTHE BEATLES

Q: John Lennon "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
ImageZACH BRAFF
Actor/Writer/Director
Q:“So, yeah, I mean, there is something universal about that feeling - that 20-something, what the hell am I going to do with my life, I'm lost and my parents are freaking me out, and what's the point? Every generation has a way of making that unique, but there are certain universals of that feeling.”
ImagePETER KAY

Q: "Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?"
ImageBILLY CONNOLLY

Characters from Little Britain
Q: Cut-down exert from the 'Chocolates' Sketch
Lou: "Now which chocolate do you want?"
Andy: "That one"

Andy: "Yeah, I know"
ImageTHE MUPPETS

Q:"Meeh, meeh, meeh, mee"
ImageDAVID ATTENBOROUGH

ImageNIGELLA LAWSON
Chef
(for making food, and not-so-stick-thin women sexy again)
Q:"Cooking is actually quite aggressive and controlling and sometimes, yes, there is an element of force-feeding going on."

RANDOM FACTS

I've been told by several people on different occasions that I look like an Angel (I have very big blue eyes, and an innocent face) - if I find a decent pic of myself then I'll post it.

My first school packed lunch box had 'Fraggle Rock' on it.

I am deathly afraid of: clowns, spiders, heights and feet (they make me want to vomit).

Claim to Fame: My grandad was the Beatles Taxman (my mum thinks the song 'Taxman' was written about him!) - unfortunately he wasn't there Accountant otherwise we'd be very, very, very rich - boo hoo!

That's enough for now - I am progressively updating this but I'm not too hot with all the technology stuff, so it might take a while!

Bye

P.S. Congratulations, you made to the end of my profile, you must really like me or be very bored! PM me anytime if you fancy putting the world to rights!
