miss_s_b gave me these:
I cannot remember ever really having any faith. My parents certainly never brought be up to believe in any faith. I think I had vague feelings of their being a god but it was never strongly associated with Christianity, and very quickly went away when I actually thought about it- I certainly wasn't taking it seriously by the time I was nine and discovered that every major civilisation had completely different religions. For some reason (I'm not sure why) I used to go along with the "amen" bit at the end of assembly prayers. Probably because I was afraid of being singled out for not bowing my head at the right places. As soon as I hit the sixth form (where we sat behind the headteacher so couldn't be seen), I totally ignored the prayer, and sat bolt upright, eyes wide open, staring straight ahead.
I love the idea of applying 19th century aesthetics to modern technology. I love the whimsical nature, and the home-made DIY ethos that pervades the genre. I was introduced to it by steely_glint through various books- paricularly China Mieville, and then discovered that there were people making things and dressing up and stuff, and I saw some of the keyboards and thought I could have a go at that.
I don't particularly like my smile. It shows my teeth in an odd way, makes me look like I could hammer rocks with my chin, and generally makes me look even less attractive than usual. Then again I don't think I've got a face for smiling. However if other people like it then I'm no going to judge them too harshly.
