Getting to know Meme

From the lovely oh_mcgee. I'm not gonna tag anybody, because I always feel somewhat awkward doing that, but if you want to do it then go ahead! ^^

Where I’m from: South England. Though I've also lived briefly in the Netherlands, and have family all over the UK.
Where I would like to live: I... Am fundamentally a boring soul, so am actually pretty cool living where we are at the moment! Although we might move to a slightly bigger city in a few years, so that'd be exciting!
Favorite food: FOOD! Food is legit one of the biggest pleasures of my existence, so this is a hard one. Ummmmmmm. Probably chocolate cake, as cooked by my SO? Or, if we're talking non-dessert, toad-in-the-hole as also cooked by my lovely SO.
Religion: Steadily moving towards atheism, I will be honest.
Sexual orientation: Probably closest to bi?
Single/taken: Taken! Living with my lovely SO, P. Who is not only wonderfully understanding about my mental illness, Generalized Anxiety Disorder FTW! (By which I mean FUCK THAT WANKER!), but very tolerant of my fannish obsessions. He's the one that got me into DC, actually!
Favorite book: I'm gonna go super geeky here and say Jane Eyre. Mainly because I overidentify with the main character like WHOA, and have done since pretty much the first time I read it.
Eye colour: Blue, grey... Hazel? Quite honestly, I have anime eyes. They appear to change depending on who is looking at them.
Favorite movie: My top three are Some Like it Hot, Arsenic and Old Lace and Jurassic Park. Getting me to narrow it down any further is GONNA BE A PROBLEM.
Favorite TV show: Avatar: the Last Airbender or Doctor Who. Avatar is, on balance, probably better but Doctor Who has been my forever show for going on twenty years now and I don't see that ever changing.
Favorite band/singer: OH MAN. My music taste is literally ALL OVER THE PLACE so this quite honestly changes by the day. Probably Lorde at the moment? I dunno, ask me tomorrow and it might be Muse or Taylor Swift or ANYBODY EVER.
Favorite holiday of the year: Christmas, probably. Mainly because of presents and joy and getting to stay in all day with my favourite people. My anxiety generally seems to act up in the winter, alas, so it can sometimes be a bit fraught - but it was good this year, thankfully!
Favorite colour: The blood of my enemies.

...By which I mean red, generally. A good most of my clothes are red, and I have a lot of red hats. ^^
If I have any pets: None at the moment, alas. :( But as soon as we can get a cat WE ARE GETTING A CAT!
What I’m listening to right now: *Switches on phone* Lana Del Rey, apparently. Cool. (Although I haven't generally been listening to her too much lately. I start wanting to gently shake her after about two songs, which probably isn't good.)
Last movie I’ve watched: the Hamlet with Mel Gibson in it. It was for university, I very pointedly did not enjoy it.
What’s my ringtone: They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard. Mainly because I accidentally bought it, and am now determined to use it at every occasion so I get my money's worth.
Favorite male character from a TV show: OH MAN. Probably a three way tie between Sokka from Avatar: TLA, Jamie from Doctor Who and Picard from Star Trek: TNG. There are others I like on a temporary basis, but those three are the ones who've stuck around for longest.
Favorite female character from a TV show: Romana II, from Doctor Who. Though I'm also incredibly fond of Korra, from Avatar: Legend of Korra, and what they did with her.
Favorite superhero: The Flash. What Flash, you may ask? LITERALLY ANY FLASH. Apparently all you have to do is dress up in red and have super speed and you'll win my eternal allegiance, or something.
Celebrity crush: My love for James McAvoy has been going strong for about ten years now, so I'm gonna go with him.

James McAvoy is a good choice for a celebrity crush. :)

I'm pretty sure that my mum showed it to me from toddler age, so it really has been a lifetime fandom! And he really is. Plus I don't think I've ever really seen him in a bad movie/TV show, so that helps. ^^

And yes! It really is. :D I love Supergirl, so it was about time I had a icon of her!

Such a good film! I rewatch it at least once a year. :DD

James McAvoy is truly a gift to mankind, I maintain. ^^

These things were my favorite part of Livejournal in the old days. Do you mind if I nick this from you? (I came here via lost_spook's comment page).
