How to make me:
(not literally, not the birds and bees way)
First thing you want to do, is preheat the body. I am overly sensitive to cold. It limits my functioning. I am small, skinny- not enough of me retain heat.
Next, you want to add a healthy amount of words. I like them and I use them frequently. The bigger, the better. The more exaggerated and figurative, the best. Reading them is similarly important to the recipe of me.
Now, add a few eccentricities: long periods of silence, sleeps with eyes and mouth open, speaks to animals, fascinated by and terrified of well- just about everything.
Sprinkle in a couple of girly characteristics: loves to shop, dress up, change hair colour, length etc.
And then add a few geeky ones: loves anything created by Joss Whedon, not immune to supernatural/fantasy/sci-fi
Throw in a few references to movies/television shows for good measure.
Next, play some White Stripes songs. To create ambience.
For a final touch, give me a cup of warm caffeinated liquid. This will complete me.
And there you have it. Me.
