Hiya *waves* New here and whatnot, I'm from New Zealand, for those of you unfamiliar with it, it's where they filmed lord of the rings, the last samurai and basically any movie that they wanted big magical looking landscapes for. For those of a more geographical mind, it's one of the closer countries to antartica. Yes, we have power, internet and plumbing. No, we do not wear grass skirts unless it's for a costume party. No, we're not a part of australia. No, we don't have hobbits here, and yes we adhere to mostly brittish english, but it's fairly flexible. I'm a wannabe author lacking in a myriad of essential requirements for actually writing something decent, I'd like to spend time getting to know those more experienced than me and see what I can pick up. I have two horses, I grew up around animals and my family have a small zoo at home. I have two modes when reading or watching movies - these are entranced and critical. Critical can still be a positive outcome, it just means the movie didn't capture me, however I tend to give a very (unjusitifed) authorative sounding review. Entranced generally means that even if there were big chunks missing in style, plot or execution, it still had that... something. I work in webdesign and graphic design when I can convince people to pay me. I like computers, I like playing with paints, beads and sparkly stuff. I'd like to be a standup comedian one day, once I'm done with ruling the world and getting rich and so on. So... hi.
