Re: Tattoos

I don't have a tattoo and although I truly admire them from afar, I don't think I will ever get one. I guess the permanence doesn't appeal to me - I don't even have pierced ears!

Re: Let's Talk Cereal

Although I love all other dairy products, I've always hated milk so I was never interested in cereal. But lately I've been having oatmeal with cranberries and tahini for breakfast and I can make it with water!

Re: Names!

Re: Ask Me... (Icebreaker)

Since we're not allowed to have dragons, the most sensible pet for me would be a Fire Crab; its jeweled shell is simply gorgeous, it is very quiet, and it would not be too much of a fire hazard once licensed!

“I want to go Hogwarts and be a wizard.”
