I'm an expat from Atlanta living in the East End of London. I'm like a Disney princess except I'm fat, I wear black all the time, and instead of butterflies and birds swarming around my head, I get drunk people... and actors. I fuckin love ribbons - yeah, RIBBONS, dude, especially in my hair. I'm a sweet, sensitive soul but look a bit like a bad little mama from a Russ Meyer or Blacksploitation film... or more like a Coop Devil Girl - yes I'm plump-with-a-belly, not a thinny, and won't ever be so love me or leave me alone! Did I mention that I'm packed into a 5'1 frame? Yep, a shorty. Did I mention I'm American? But a cool one.
I love: film, especially Horror - go to FrightFest every year - hell, my masters dissertation is going to explore a Cultural Studies approach to the zombie apocalypse. Yeah, I love horror that much. I also love... light hiking, FX makeup and alternative beauty makeup (that's my job basically), screenwriting (that's my other job), Sunday breakfast in bed, blasting conservatives/republicans, going for coffee/tea, getting all dolled up with other chicks, lying around in the park, cocktails!, quality time with loved ones, S&M (I'm a bratty sub), house parties, dinner parties, shoes, reading, making lots of love, core intimacy, painting and general creative projects (that's my other, other job lol), children, animals, cooking (I make a mean chili), live music, being spoiled (though I am not a materialist), being a frighteningly intelllectual geek covered in a deceptive squishy, plump, big breasted package... and I loved being a smoker but I hadda give it up.
I dislike: marmite, selfishness, body fascists, disability intolerance, race used as western cultural signifiers, lack of interpersonal maturity, porn addicts/sex addiction, stiff hugs/limp handshakes, plus people who can't hold their liquor and do stupid shit, people who won't dance with me even if I beg, lack of imagination, financially stingy people, and men who hit women (outside of S&M of course).
You can be my friend if...
you bake me cookies, you like horror films and furry animals.
