Name: Someone, known to most as Josie

Age: 14

Location: Wales

SLOCS/pets/imaginary friends: heaps of imaginary friends, all CS girls. My form in Josie Goes. I remain staunchly SLOC-free and my goldfish, Courtney, died two years ago.

Favourite books/characters: Exile, Evvy and Co., the Maynards (everyone I write about, basically)

Least Favourite books/characters: None! My obsession is so strong that I see no faults.

How I Got into CS: My mum nagged me for years about reading it, then caved in, got up to the bit in School At where they are in Paris, gave it up as boring, went on Guide Camp, Mum gave me Camp, refused to touch it, a week after coming home I ran out of stuff to read, so picked it up and the obsession began!

How I found the CBB: Was Googling for stuff about romance in the CS and it came up on the Romance in Exile thread. (Can't find the damn thing, would LOVE to contribute to it!)

Hahahaha! Nope, was at school with her actually. Younger than her, though. (Due to timing errors, five years at first, ends up at around ten!) By the time she was married and all that (and she didn't believe me when I told her!), I was sixteen and too old for that! Babysat the Trips and everything.

(In case the sixteen thing confuses you, that was the drabble I wrote about myself, Josie Goes to the Chalet School)

However, in RL, at dinner one night, we were talking about the Alfie books, by Shirley Hughes. My older cousin has a son called Alfie, and Mum said that my aunt was fond of the Alfie books, and read them lots to my cousins when they were tiny. Therefore, he had Alfie in his head as being a good name. My Mum then went on to add that she had had Josephine in her head as being a good name, because of Jo, but she does prefer Josie to Jo. Whenever anyone calls me Jo, I do not respond. ("Don't call me Jo" always prompted the response "What was that, Jo, I didn't quite hear!", or similar)

Slightly off-topic, my middle name is Margaret, but that's the family name, and my brother is called James, although he is Jamie, rather than Jem, and that's the family name as well.

Hello, Flare W. Cool avatar you have! :wink:

Re-reading this thread (bored), and, as I mostly identify posters by their avatars, I got majorly confused!

Flare? Are you suggesting that Clare shines brightly for a moment then fizzles out? That's not the Clare I know! ;)

Since F is quite near to C on the QWERTY keyboard, I probably pressed the wrong key and didn't notice.

Either that or it was autocorrect.
