caresse sur l'océan
perpetual lover of figure skating and master of schadenfreude.

off season semi-hiatus.


make me choose || adios nonino or send in the clowns? (asked by precipitatos)

Isn't it rich? Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career
But where are the clowns? Send in the clowns
Well, maybe next year... (x, y)

zefluffletruffle asked: 26 and 48! by the way, i love that photo of Mao you have on the side of your blog.
  • 26: What movies would you watch over and over and still love? the lion the witch and the wardrobe? studio ghibli movies, especially princess mononoke. amadeus. movies in that sort of vein? i’m pretty sure i like other movies as well but these are the only ones that are coming to mind for me right now;;
  • 48: Do you sing in the shower? not really unless i’m in a singing mood, i guess. mostly when i’m in the shower i’m too busy thinking about things and relaxing to sing

thank you! i love that photo too (lol) (▰˘◡˘▰)

Anonymous asked: 1 and 97!
  • 1:Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? usually closed, if it’s open though and i’m already half asleep i won’t bother to close it…
  • 97:Do you want kids? i think i’ve taken to kids lately, recently at art class bbs kept standing behind me and engaging me in conversation about my piece. also i smiled at some of them and gave one a lollipop - they used to be kind of scared of me hahaha. and i made a cute little bb cheer up and laugh. kids are kinda cute and i really like their honesty. although sometimes they can be annoying and noisy, so. maybe just one.
