It's Raspberries, now. *sigh* I've finally given in to the higher ways of spellign. That was an entirely intended mispelling, you know. ¬.¬;;

Honest.

Basic Stats, just slightly modified;

Name - Sara the _ (fill in the blank with your favorite adjective, please)
Age - 16, baby. Watch me drive all over the bloody place. Well, I would, that is, if I had a car... u.u;;
Sex - I'd say the name is -quite- a hint...

Likes:

anime-wise: Trigun (YAY! I luuuurve Vash), Angel Sanctuary, Gundam Wing, Weiss Kreuz, Magic Knight Rayearthe, Fushigi Yugi(kill the dub, PLEASE! I just can't take any more of Miaka... T_T), Inu Yasha (although I've seen incredibly little of it...), Cowboy Bebop (this, too, I haven't seen nearly enough of), Yame no Matsui, X, Fake, Gravitation, and Sailor Moon, which I am addicted to, despite its generally bad animation and lack of plot... the manga is pretty at least...

book-wise: just about anything by Garth Nix, Roald Dahl, Ellen Wittlinger, and Anne Rice, though I might have forgotten a few favorite authors...; The His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, The Lord of the Rings and all associated books by J.R.R. Tolkien, Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine, the Everworld series by K.A. Applegate, The Egypt Game by Zilpha Keatley Snyder, The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende, The Dealing with Dragons series by Patricia C. Wrede, Breathing Underwater by Alex Flinn, Tangerine by Edward Bloor, Crusader by Edward Bloor, The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, The Darkangel series by someone whose name I have forgotten, Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Autobiography of Malcolm X (which was actually written by Alex Haley), and probably a billion other books and series that I don't recall at this very moment.

poetry-wise: Er.. I really like Robert Frost. Here are a few poems that you must read: Portrait d'une Femme by Ezra Pound. (It's not in French, don't worry, but make sure you look up the Sargasso Sea in the encyclopedia) On Gay Wallpaper by William Carlos Williams. I love the transition on that one. ^_^ And Because You Asked About the Line between Prose and Poetry. I'm not sure who that's by, but he used to live in St. Louis. It's great. If you request, I'll scan my copies and send them to you, or else just type them out, if you don't want my observations/notes in the margins, etc.

music-wise: I like nearly everything besides rap, country, and jazzy junk, although there are a few exceptions to the rule. (I mostly dislike jazz because I have an ancient emnity with the saxophone. It might stem from playing the clarinet for 3 years in my school band, but I'm not quite sure...) The Beatles are a staple of my life. ^_^ They're beautiful. My favorite kind of music is alternative and old rock, but I am pretty flexible most of the time. I was born and raised on The Eagles. My current staples (always subject to change) are: Cake, Oleander, Evanescence, Yo-Yo Ma, Gackt, System of a Down, Linkin Park, various classical music pieces(With a penchant for the romantic or baroque eras), Chevelle, the music from Jesus Christ Superstar, and probably a bunch of others that I've just momentarily forgotten. X_X

language-wise: I speak French and adore it. I'd like to learn Spanish, too. And maybe Japanese.

random objects: socks and scarves. I like Heinz ketchup, too, even though that isn't an object.

Dislikes:

annoying people, cheese (except when on pizza or being used as a compound word with "cake"), being burnt, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Fyodor Dostoevsky, cheerleading (I am positive that this stems from being a cheerleader for two years - why two years, you ask? Because my mother refused to let me quit after the first year), whiny people (although I occasionally join their ranks), Josh, frequently my mother, headaches, being sick, and itchy clothing.

favorite quote: impossible to say, but most things said by Oscar Wilde are quite witty and enjoyable.

"To lose one parent may be regarded as misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness."

"I do not play cricket because it requires me to assume such indecent postures."

"Whenever cannibals are on the brink of starvation, Heaven in its infinite mercy sends them a nice plump missionary."

"Work is the curse of the drinking classes."

~The Magnificent (And Fruity ^.^) Oscar Wilde

You could bloody well write my biography by now. Um. Hope you've had a jolly day and continue to do so.

Solemnly,

Sara
