In the beginning the universe was created. This made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

About Me and Friending Policy

Me: mid-20s, female, Californian, former English major, very liberal, obsessed with stories. I would love to travel more if I had the money. I love going to cons and seeing my favorite bands and comedians live.

Other places you can find me:
Tumblr
Goodreads

I am the only active mod for booshslashhaven

Friending policy: if you friend me and I can tell that from your profile that we have interests or LJ friends in common, I will add you back without question. You don't even have to comment, although you may if you want to introduce yourself! If I won't be able to tell why you've friended me from your profile, I suggest you leave a comment on my friends only post to explain why you want to add me.

My absolute favorite author is Neil Gaiman.

Television

I am a massive, ridiculous Doctor Who fan (old series and new series). It's my favorite show. David Tennant was my first Doctor, I adore Peter Capaldi, and I'll always cherish Tom Baker. I love Matt Smith and Patrick Troughton too. Every Doctor has something special!

Some other shows I'm a fan of: Sherlock, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Jessica Jones, Life on Mars (UK), Broadchurch.

I'm a big fan of many British comedy shows, including The Mighty Boosh, Spaced, Black Books, Green Wing, Peep Show, The Thick of It, The IT Crowd, Psychoville, W1A, and Would I Lie to You.

On the non-British side, I enjoy Community, Parks and Rec, and Flight of the Conchords.

Movies


I'm a devoted fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I always see all those movies.

If someone asks my favorite movie, I would usually pick Run Lola Run or In Bruges.

Other movies I've loved: Deadpool, Mad Max: Fury Road, Attack the Block, Moon, 28 Days Later, Amelie.

I'm a big fan of the movies of Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, World's End, Scott Pilgrim vs the World) and Jim Jarmusch (Only Lovers Left Alive, Dead Man, Down by Law, Stranger than Paradise).

I love Bollywood movies and have seen quite a few of them; my favorites are Om Shanti Om and 3 Idiots. I like old Preston Sturges and Hitchcock movies too, and I adore Humphrey Bogart.

Other

Music:IAMX, David Bowie, The Cure, The Beatles, Modest Mouse, Amanda Palmer/Dresden Dolls, Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Arcade Fire, Nirvana, Talking Heads, many more.

Video games: I'm not a dedicated gamer, but I do love Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, Mass Effect series, Dragon Age series, Dishonored, Half Life 2, Portal 1 and 2, and the Sims 3.

Comedians:
I'm a big fan of a number of comedians, favorites including Ross Noble, Tim Minchin, Noel Fielding, Russell Brand, Dylan Moran, Bill Bailey, Simon Amstell, and Eddie Izzard. I've seen six of them live, and am waiting for my chance to see the other two!

There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty.

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass! Who's been pinching my beer?

There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
