I'm Kristen and I'm living in Crawley, Sussex (hoping to return to my beloved Brighton 'n' Hove when my ME/CFS allows). I drink a lot of tea, ride a lot of buses, go in a lot of charity shops, draw, sew and knit (and attempt to crochet), take a lot of photos, spend a lot of time sleeping, read a lot of history books and follow Jesus Christ. <3

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears...
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13: 1-13
Black skirt suit with white polka dots, by Bella Freud
Passing Jaeger on my lunchbreak a black, belted mac covered in white polka dots made me catch my breath (yes, I'm that shallow...). 'Not your typical Jaeger,' I thought. It turns out they've hired Bella Freud to add a bit of 'fun and frippery'. Now I long to shimmy round the South Lanes in that mac and kitten heels, swinging a Kelly Bag on the way to my date with Cary Grant...
'You've got to tolerate all those people that you hate I'm not in love with you, but I won't hold that against you.'
Enjoying the Super Furries Animals' Juxtaposed With U on my PC headphones, I decided to revisit the fantastic Monsterism site. Boy, do prolific artistic geniuses like that Pete Fowler ever piss me off... ;)
