My name is Maria, I'm twenty years old and I'm a bit of an odd duckling. I live in a tiny, beautiful little town in New England. It's especially beautiful in spring and fall, and a great area for hiking.
I collect odd items like seashells, ribbons, movie tickets, crystals, rocks, old cartoons on VHS and anything else that piques my interest. I also own about one hundred stuffed animals. Eighty, actually, at the last time I counted them. The biggest ones are a stuffed bear named Boyfriend (who stands at about four and a half feet) and a large stuffed Bernese Mountain dog named Fluffy (about the same height).
I have a passion for animation - I appriciate all forms of it, from every age it has been made. I love absolutely all cartoons from Betty Boop to Animaniacs to Adventure Time.
I'm a bit of a bookworm, and I read mostly graphic novels and manga. I've always been the sort who cheers for the villains, 'cause they tend to be way more interesting than the one-dimensional heroes.
I own three cats and one dog. Two of the cats are identical twins - they're skinny little orange tabbies - the other is a fat spoiled long-haired calico. My dog is a Newfoundland; she's quite old and lazy these days.
The twins are Timmy and Tommy, the fat cat's Lucy, and the old dog is Pearl. Usually we call her Peewee or Pearlie.
You can usually find me doing light role-play in the Word Games forum, or participating in gifting threads.
I play zOMG! infrequently, and I am currently questing badges.
If I'm wearing an "I AM" pose, I might be playing.
Or maybe I just feel like being cute.
Here's my lovely face:
