» Tales of the Unexplained

Tiny Hair and Tiny Teeth
When i was a toddler I almost died from a huge tumour in my chest. Luckily all worked out and the bugger was removed and I went on to live a pretty normal life.
Cue me in my 20's chatting to my mum about an article I'd read about a boy who 'gave birth' to his twin which he'd absorbed in the womb.

Mum pipes up 'you were one of those...sort of'.

She went on to regail me with the tale that the tumour I had taken out had 'features' such as tiny teeth and bits of hair - there's even a pathology report detailing these delights (mine was a rare type of tumour in the first place).

Given the fact that my father is an identical twin and my mother is a fraternal twin the general thought is that i was the stronger one of a set of twins and I absorbed my weaker sibling in utero and his/her remains became a tumour in my chest.

I just hope to god that i'm not the evil twin a la Bart/Hugo Simpson .....

» Teenage Crushes - Part Two

As a young un I was obsessed with weedy tortured lads
namely River Phoenix, Kurt Cobain, Richey Edwards and Daniel Johns.

Didn't end well.

Still a fetish of mine but I've moved on to Peter from Heroes...yum yum - and he can fly :-)

» Best Films Ever

Phenomena (no, not the Travolta with a brain tumour one)
This is an 80's Dario Argento film with her from Labyrinth in.

She has dominion over the insect world and can manipulate varying kinds of bugs.
She has a mate who's a disabled professor who knows about her powers and is looked after by a helper chimpanzee.

The professor? Donald Pleasance :-)

There's murder afoot at the weirdy Euro boarding school where she's been sent (typical Argento beheadings) and she uses her bug powers to solve the series of crimes.

Best scene? When the helper chimp, following the death of Donald Pleasance, goes berserker with a switchblade and saves the day.

Best. Film. Ever

If you don't believe me, here's the trailer
