The Monkey Princess
12 September 1975
I'm a lazy 32 year old Irish journalist, living in Dublin with my husband and a rather stupid cat.

Things I like: Patsington, second-hand bookshops, cats, being a self-righteous leftie, knitting, BBC Radio 4, drinking tea, Buffy, Sweet Valley High books, lazing about with my chums talking rubbish.

Things I don't like: faux-Irishness, people who say "I'm not a feminist, but...", people who call people "babe", those headbands with bows which deluded parents put around tiny bald babies' heads.

I don't automatically friend people back - sorry.
