Hey everyone...welcome to my page!

ABOUT ME:

"Hair: brown. Lips: Scarlet

Profession: none, or 'starlet'"

That's basically me, except I have blonde hair!

My name's Amanda and sadly, I am completely without a nickname.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

Raindrops and roses and whiskers on kittens...kidding! Though I could go for some crisp apple strudle right now. My favorite color is green, I enjoy caramel lattes from Starbucks (tall, non-fat), my favorite weather condition would have to be the torrential rain, I love how pool water sparkles on an impossibly sunny afternoon in August. My favorites book is either Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf or The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak. My favorite movies are probably Lost in Translation, La Vie en Rose, Dan in Real Life and Romeo + Juliet. And je parle français!

IN MY OPINION, THE WORLD COULD DO WITHOUT...

Spiders, monkeys (yes, I am terrified of monkeys), and...that's about it. I'm not going to say sadness, or mean people, or annoying shallow selfish people because if everyone was perfectly happy and agreeable life would be pretty boring. And besides, what would we write about?

WHAT I LIKE TO DO...

Read, write, listen to all sorts of music (basically anything that's not rap, country or that disgusting mainstream hip hop or pop), SLEEP, bake anything and everything, play the piano and the cello, talk to my friends, sit on my hill and muse about things, drink coffee and write unnecessarily long Bios on Fictionpress. I mean seriously, who's going to read all of this?

Oh, and I run. Cross country in the Fall, indoor track in the Winter and outdoor in the Spring. But my one true love is cross country!

SOME OF MY FAVORITE ARTISTS...

-Regina Spektor (Samson, Apres Moi, Fidelity, On The Radio, Hotel Song, Poor Little Rich Boy)

-Jason Mraz (I'm Yours, If It Kills Me, Mr. Curiousity)

-Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova (Falling Slowly, The Hill, If You Want Me)

-Rufus Wainwright (The Art Teacher, Vibrate, Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk)

-Carla Bruni (Quelqu'un M'a Dit, Tout le Monde, L'amour)

-Vanessa Paradis (Des Que J'Te Vois, Jackadi, Bliss, Junior Suite, Marilyn & John...umm, everything!)

-John Lennon...everything

-THE BEATLES (basically my new obsession...)

RANDOM...

I have a male cat named Honey.

I have a green ipod!

Red lipstick is my favorite.

Anyway, that's enough from me! I'd appreciate some feedback, and if you want some I'd be happy to return the favor! My email is durstey@Hotmail.comand my AIM is Prof0undWhatever
