About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
My name is Michele, Chele to my friends, and I'm a big fan of all things 'Golden Age' - I can spend many a weekend glued to TCM. I enjoy photography, fell walking - doing the Wainwrights - and have a new found love of scubadiving. I also love reading; favourites include anything by Paulo Coelho and any autobiography. Other interests include socialising, travelling and taking as many holidays as possible!
As well as a healthy love of film, I also have square eyes and love the following television shows - Lost, The X-Files, Boston Legal and West Wing.
My favourite quote is by E.M. Forster, "We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us."
