Loves: (Sorry if I repeat myself a little here) Eating drinking and sleeping B5/Gladiator, quoting, drooling over Bruce Boxleitner and Russell Crowe :-D, website design, drawing, writing fanfiction, reading a really good poem, listening to my soundtracks, eating (just plain eating!), science-fiction/fantasy, going out to the movies, chatting to my mates, learning about World History and wars, plastering my walls with pictures...(!)
Hates: CHAIN LETTERS! I HATE THEM WITH A VENGEANCE! Erm, spiders, jogging/athletics (URGH!), women whose eyebrows are a different colour to their hair!! I don't why, it just really annoys me. Ooh, I hate it when people turn their eyelids inside out. People who think sci-fi fans are really "sad". People who think there's no point in studying History because it's already happened and it's in the past (GRRRRR!). If people actually payed attention to History maybe there wouldn't have been a World War II. *sighs and shakes head* I hate the idea of nuclear war - images from Terminator II scared the Hell out of me - especially the burning playground *shudder*. Morbid or what! I don't personally see the attraction of watching scary movies...I mean, they're scary!! *G* What else...hmmm. Can't think of anything else right now. Ohh yeah, Pokemon and Daphne and Celeste. One word: why???
