Miss Peregrin?

Hello there!

I’m Miss Peregrin – although, in real life people call me Stacey for some odd reason.

I hail from the (too friggin’) sunny land of Brisbane, Australia. I live in a small house, in a suburb in the bad part of town with my boyfriend of three years, two cats (who we thought were girls, but actually are boys), a hyperactive puppy dog who wets himself when he’s excited, and three charming but illegitimate children.  Ok, I’m lying about the three illegitimate children part. But if I had them, boy would they be charming.

I was born with a cleft lip and palate, and I’m not going to lie, it’s made a good portion of my life a struggle. I’ve had 12 operations, and I have ongoing hearing/ear problems. I also have depression, but I try not to let that get to me (or at least, not as much as it used to).  I work for a company called Trade Secret, which sells cut-price brand name clothing, accessories, jewelry & homewares. I love my job – especially when I get to work in ladieswear & rearrange things all pretty.

Sometimes I try to play air guitar, and end up looking like The Tinman from Wizard of Oz.

For the last three years of my life I’ve been studying psychology at The University of Queensland – but I have the sinking feeling that isn’t the life for me anymore. After many long and tortured nights mulling things over, I’ve decided to study Fashion Design. One day I want to make clothes for the masses. All of them! Stay-at-home mums, goths, princesses, tomboys, girly boys, business people, geeky guys, gamer girls, porn stars, librarians, plus-sized chicks and dudes – anyone with a mind of their own, who isn’t afraid to break out of the lines. I want my clothes to make people feel good about the body they’ve been born with, and I want to make people feel great about themselves.  I love to create, and I LOVE TO SEW!

I tend to jump around like a bunny when no-one is looking.

 I spend far too much time talking, and even more time dreaming. I also like to write (obviously), and spent much of my childhood time writing bad Harry Potter fanfiction. Ok, I also spent a good portion of my time reading bad Harry Potter fanfiction. I still spend far too much time reading, just usually not bad fanfiction. My favourite author is Jacqueline Carey, but I will read pretty much anything to do with fantasy or sci-fi. I used to love horror stories and true crime, but they give me terrible nightmares (American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis is the only book I have ever started reading and not finished). I’m obsessed with bad TV shows like House, Gossip Girl, Veronica Mars, NCIS and Law & Order. I’m also obsessed with Stargate: SG1, and Farscape but I can’t call either of them a bad TV show and still keep my soul.

I have a kinda big butt, and I love it.

If you want to chat, or just whatever, drop me a line at i_see_the_purple_monkey@hotmail.com.  Also, yes, I have had the same email address since Grade 8.
