- About Althea
- When I was a lad I served a term, as office boy to an attorney's firm...
...well, actually, it was an accountant's firm, and I was an accounts asisstant. It was this that prompted me to take first an A-Level, then a Degree, and next a Master's, in the subject. Synonymous with "boring" I know, but someone has to do this stuff, right? Plus I've always been rather fond of number crunching...although if you give me a statistical formula I'll probably break down and cry.
Anyways, beyond my career path there is not all that much to say about me, really. I'm your standard-issue internet junkie/layabout, although perhaps I'm a little more eloquent (read: I love the sound of my own voice and take a paragraph to say what could be said in a sentence) than most internet junkies.
What am I like? I'd prefer people form their own opinion of that - I do a terrible job at selling myself. In fact, if I WERE to try and sell myself, I'd probably have to pay YOU. Not a skill that is going to get me a job in life perhaps, but...well, I'm working on it. Like most people, I'm just here to chat to some like-minded people and maybe make a few friends, so I'd love to hear from you if you'd like to talk~

- I'll...get back to you on this
- Favorite Pokémon
- This changes with my mood...but I like ghost and ice types, as well as third-generation legendaries. Can't go wrong with Bulbasaur, either.
