This is part where I introduce myself, and I’ll even tell you the reason I started this blog. Curious? It will be all me, the uncensored, not politically correct me I keep locked up because I can be too intense for polite society.
I am a combination of
- Beatrice from “Much Ado About Nothing”
- Catherine Earnshaw (if you don’t know who that is, I don’t think we’ll get along)
- Olivia the Pig
- Eloise “oh my Lord!”
- Lily (from Lily and the Purple Plastic Purse)
Yes, three of these are from children’s books, one is pig and another a very plucky mouse. They are all precocious, strong willed, forceful, charming, and “a bit too much” for those around them to handle. Beatrice is witty, mocking, funny, fierce and still vulnerable. Catherine is well, not always likable. She is wild, passionate, brash, uncivilized, untamed, self centered and vain. She chooses, against her nature, the polite and civilized world of the Lintons when she marries Edgar, and suffers greatly for it. I identify with them all.
