I'm a writer. I would spend practically all my time writing if I could. Occasionally I buy lottery tickets. If I won I would move to Montreal, buy a house, fill it with books, and read and write all day long.

I adore Oscar Wilde. He's the most beautiful person I've ever known.

I'm a Hex-enthusiast. If star trek fans are trekkies then I'm a Hexie. If I was granted 3 wishes by a genie or a fairy or something one of them would be to get Hex back on the air. It's genius, and the fact that it was cancelled is yet one more sign of the decline of civilization.

I have a literary journal: mlle_lanthier

Azazel applauds Jez for teaching the kids geometry. "Oh that's allright then! We'll forget about the war with heaven and teach the kids geometry instead!!"

My favourite Jez line: "Only a quiet mind will win the fight."
