Now, the question. Who am I?
I'm Hannah, also known as Rue, Maggie, and Pen. I am a Catholic, writer, gardener. Font freak. Word nerd. Cereal conisseur. Eldest child of three (two younger brothers). Desperate for a really good book. Optimist but with a tendency to be mercurial at times. Co-filmmaker. Fairly short. Eclectic. Scottish (Irish if you ask my Grandpa). Irish dancer. Synaesthete. The words "old soul" have been used to describe me, along with "free spirit" and "firebrand".
My favorite books are: The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, Alice in Wonderland/ Through the Looking Glass, Peter Pan, The Hunting of the Snark, Jane Eyre, Cobwebs, The Golden Apples of the Sun, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
Favorite movies include: Captain America, Arsenic and Old Lace, The Wizard of Oz, Spider-Man, Emma, Tora! Tora! Tora!, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Back to the Future, the Thin Man, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Little Dorrit, North and South, and about a zillion others that I can't think of right now.
Other favorite things include: shields, old things, accents, Jars of Clay, Irish music, the colors gray and blue, mountains, the Great Lakes, spiders, hawks, maps, honeybees, tea, winter and fall, rivers, rocks, postage stamps, weather, and the moon.
So that's me in a nutshell.
A rather verbose nutshell, at that.
