    I currently have an obsession with fruit bats (AKA flying foxes.) Also, I want to conceal my real identity from certain people who might also be on this site, but they don't know about my obsession with batties :) .

    I love Fruit bats too, tho' they're not well-liked in our local town where there's a whole colony of them. When I lived in the middle of nowhere about five years ago, we had a colony fly overhead every night at dusk. Was amazing! Literally thousands of them. :)

    I've done the bat rescue course, but have been hesitant about getting the necessary injections to actually do the rescues.

    Anyway, welcome to Entertainment :D

    Well, when I started posting many moons ago, I was very lardy- around 19 stone. (Thanks to Slimming World, and some will power, I am now 10.5 stone and lardy no more!)

    Mine's a pen name and happens to be my father's Christian Name plus a place in Spain I like to visit.
    I wouldn't even have thought of Cazorla as a surname if it weren't for Santi Cazorla, an Arsenal footballer (and I don't even like football).

    Wow- well done!


    It must be wonderful to see all those lovely bats flying around :) . If you decide to get your vaccinations and become a bat carer, I hope you'll post pics.

    I probably won't now as just started a new job, and the babies that come into care need fed every few hours, however I do have photos from the local town, where they hang off the trees during the day. I could post some of them if you like :)

    Drusilla is my favourite vampire in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My scooter's also named after her.

    Jesmond is a suburb of Newcastle which is where I was born. I was actually brought up in Walker but Jesmond sounds nicer.

    I’m a Tokoloshe and we are by nature evil.

    Nah, just a reference to local culture and when I chose it fun headlines about supposed tokoloshe activity. Apparently their poo is luminous green and led to one of the best billboard headlines for a newspaper ‘Tokoloshe Poop In My House’ (almost as good as ‘Chicken Pantie Terror’ from the same paper)
