Salutations and welcome to The Dork Ages.

I am a Big Nerd, gamer, role-player and lover of all things literary and historical. Here is a selection of truths about myself that I am willing to acknowledge:

I like monkeys a lot; I have a degree in Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic from the University of Cambridge; my thumbs bend backwards to a 90-degree angle; I spend a sizeable proportion of my income on eye make-up; I can read pretty much fluently in Old Norse & Old English; I like to call my laptop The Beast.
