4. What's your current obsession?
Graphic novels and comics. I have visions of ending up sitting in a circle with a group of people saying: “Hi, my name is Lauren and I’m a comic book addict”. I’m also a little obsessed with my new bike at the moment. It’s love ;)

5. What food do you dislike?
Broccoli. It's a texture thing.

6. What's the one language you want to learn?

7. Do you consider yourself materialistic?
I like having nice things, so I suppose I am. But I'm aware that it's just stuff.

I don't remember. When I was about 17 I thought about being an English teacher, which is funny because I'm such a terrible speller. But I suppose the kids could've corrected my spelling mistakes.

17. If you could have one super power, what would it be?
The ability to fly. That'd be cool.

Seeing I like the signatures I've made for the forums i belong to, I figured I might as well display them here. If you refresh your page you'll get a different one. :)


Anyhoo... now seems the right time to plug my favourite online comic - Girls with Slingshots. Go right back to the first one. It's worth it.
