Literature, Writer, Theater, Fantasy, Anglophile, Steampunk, I can go on...

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works. It's okay. I understand.
I just wanted to apologies for earlier. You kind of caught me off guard, and as I'm pretty socially inept anyway, so my brain basically stopped working for a few minutes there. I'm not usually that weird. I mean, I am weird, but not usually in such an escaped mental patient kind of way, you know? Too bad I didn't think of something cool to say, like 'best wishes' or something. :) I really am sorry, and I promise I'll try to be less awkward next time.
I don't want to be mean or anything, but I'm not sure who you are. I mean, I know you work with my husband, but I don't remember when we met. Sorry. It's really cool to know that I know nerdfighters IRL though, like you know, besides my mom. lol!
Actually that's the perfect definition of romance pour moi: a rainy and cold day sitting in a small Italian cafe (can you use the word cafe, despite the French root? whatever) sipping something warm and flipping through an amazing novel. Oh and the sweet little man that this bakery (it's a bakery now) belongs to is offering you Italian pastries. Oh and you're sitting on a squishy green armchair. There's a fireplace. Let's write a story!
