Comment on this entry and I’ll give you a letter. List ten things, people, places, beings, thoughts, feelings, that you love that begin with that letter and then post that list on your journal.

  gave me a D!

Dylan, my woodlouse from IKEA. He hates me a bit at the moment because I took him away from his beloved Otto the octopus, but I clutched him at 4am this morning when I was having yet another existential crisis, and I think he loves me really.

The Decemberists, for it is fairly uncommon for me to find a current band I actually like.

Talking of which, the Dubliners. I think they are my favourite band. I love them.

Dublin itself- I went on a daytrip there with my dad when I was 16ish and the people were very friendly (and a strikingly large proportion was incredibly attractive too!).

DANISH or Denmark. I’ve got a massive soft spot for the Danish language. It’s like a duckling with a broken wing. I want to look after it. Because nobody else loves it.

Dutch, for that is the language that has won most of my love so far! 

Dit was het nieuws, the Dutch version of Have I Got News For You. I was very addicted to it when I lived in Amsterdam.

Dandelion and burdock. I associate it very strongly with my Lancastrian grandparent’s house, although I must have had it in other places.

Daffodils, for I strive to be Welsh. They’re pretty good flowers, to be fair. I like lilies best of all but they are associated with death, so I’ll stick with daffodils for non-death-related occasions.

Derren Brown. I harboured a crush on him throughout secondary school and was a bit devastated to find out that he was gay. I’ve been to one of his shows and it was really good. OR MAYBE HE IS MAKING ME SAY THAT.

In further news, it’s early days yet, but a transfer to Sheffield might be possible after all! Will ramble when less exhausted.
