About meEnglish - Spanish translator & editor. Lexical-gustatory synesthete. Perfectionist linguist. Besserwisser. Logophiliac. Bibliophibian. Reader. Loner. Lover not a fighter. Wannabe writer. Nonconformist misanthrope. Feminist. Animal lover. Owned by two cats. Undecided agnostic. Chronic procrastinator. Caffeine addict. Opinionated. Sweet & sour. Compulsive collector of films & books. Typography nerd. Couch film reviewer. Self-proclaimed mistress of worthless knowledge. Trying to save the world by ridding it of one false cognate at a time.

Edit (early 2012): Oh, I now have a book blog & a foodie blog!
My book blog is here: Silent Librarian on Tumblr
My food blog is here: The Tasty Word on Tumblr

For a long time I had this for a profile picture:

She's Door, a character from the graphic novel Neverwhere (adapted from Neil Gaiman's eponymous novel, and written by Mike Carey, with art by Glenn Fabry.)

I've also had this other one:

She's Delirium, my favorite character from Neil's The Sandman series. She's the reason for my username, obviously. :)

About my libraryIt's still a work in progress. Basically, it's just a virtual shelf to keep track of my various dictionaries and books on language, but also my ever growing collection of books by Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King & Terry Pratchett. :-)

Oh, my tags? My tags don't make sense but to me, my tags are a mess, some of my books don't even have tags, quit looking at my tags... why are you looking at my tags!??!
