A Few Of My Favourite Things

I found one of those 30 day memes on Pinterest that really caught my eye – it’s all about Top 5 favourites and includes topics such as actors, actresses, movies, books, models, animals, fears… I think it looks quite interesting and I’m really looking forward to starting it. I sort of want to start it today because it feels like new things should start on a Monday, but the month starts tomorrow. So tomorrow I’ll start it.

Right now I am –
reading: JK Rowling – Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows
watching: Nothing, but I’m poking at Netflix to see if anything catches my attention. I’m thinking of catching up on Saving Hope (which is downloading because I’m a naughty girl!) and finishing Forever. Although I’m quite tired so I do’t know if I’ll stay awake to watch 3 episodes tonight. At least I’ll have good dreams if I fall asleep in any of those!
listening to: An 80s rock playlist on Spotify
eating: I’ve just ordered a pizza because I’m feeling tired and lazy

Hannah Nicole

Sometimes I feel like the only person who actually likes their name. I’ve never had, or wanted, a nickname or to be known as anything else. I don’t even like my name being shortened. Do I look like Han Solo to you?

Hannah. Its from the Hebrew meaning ‘favour’ or ‘grace’. Although to be fair, I’m not exactly a very graceful person. Mother of Samuel in the bible. Makes a lot of people think of a certain Disney show. I don’t mind though, I like the name. It’s my paternal grandmother’s name.
Nicole. Feminised form of Nicholas, from the Greek meaning ‘victor of the people’. St Nicholas was the patron saint of children, sailors and merchants – which seems like a strange combination but, whatever. Probably best associated with Nicole Kidman. It’s my maternal grandmother’s name.

There’s a naming tradition in my dad’s side of the family that the oldest child is named after the two grandparents. It’s been going back hundreds of years and I really like it, so if for some reason Ben and I have kids, I would totally use it. It would make my kids be called either ‘John Miles’ or ‘Judith Valerie’ – I really hope any first born I have is a boy… I can totally call a girl ‘John’ right? LOL

Welcome!

• My name is Hannah. I’m in my mid-30s, live alone in England with two cats. I’ve been with my boyfriend Ben for almost 7 years and we have no plans to get married.

• Please let me know if I say something that you find offensive or tactless, because I can be quite thoughtless when I say things sometimes, so I’d appreciate being told so I don’t do it again. I don’t mean it maliciously, I simply don’t think before inserting my foot into my mouth.

• I’m a huge fan of 90s/2000s alternative rock/grunge. I love Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Semisonic, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Muse, Linkin Park, The White Stripes, 3 Doors Down, Queens Of The Stone age… I have a last.fm account – it’s a new one because, like my old LJ, I’ve lost all the log-in details

• I love science fiction! My favourites are Doctor Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Farscape, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Andromeda. I’m currently really loving Dark Matter, Killjoys, iZombie and Stitchers.

• I sold my soul to Joss Whedon many decades ago and he’s never let me down. I have an immense love for that man and his work.

• The superhero films and TV shows of recent years are a current obsession of mine. I love both DC and Marvel, although Marvel possibly slightly more because I love how it’s all connected – it’s all one timeline whereas with DC there’s these shows here in this bubble, these movies here in this bubble. I’m liking the new Justice League era of movies

• I have a Bsc in Psychology but have never put it to use and work in a bank. People fascinate me endlessly and I have thought of doing some form of study in Social Psychology/Sociology or Philosophy.
I’ve just started learning German through Duolingo

• I used to be a big bookworm and I’m trying to pick that back up again. I love science-fiction, fantasy and horror, although I think my current favourite genre is young adult urban fantasy. I’m re-reading the Harry Potter series and have just started The Prisoner Of Azkaban
You can find me on goodreads (which is another new account, I mentioned losing all my log in details for all my social media, yes?)

• I think this is pretty much everything, although if there’s anything you would like to know, feel free to ask!
