all the secret ways to be, hidden in that wayward glancing

I am female, 24. I am married and I have two cats. I work in a cubicle, and I find this hilarious. I have a healthy obsession with classic Hollywood. I have vague ambition to do something interesting like write a book someday, but I'll probably keep working in a cubicle and wasting time on the internet.

In my spare time I maintain two tumblrs: Ronald Colman and Standing Still. I also maintain (if you can call it that) Let's Be Common, a film blog. I reckon that I'll update it once every two months. Quite prolific.
