Rules: just insert your answers into the questions below and tag at least 10 followers. Except I don’t have that many followers who ain’t been tagged, so here’s tagging you back, Toad Consular, AND here’s tagging you, AG!

Name: Tsubame Kusanagi (or, more properly, Kusanagi Tsubame in Japan)

Nickname: Tsu, Silk-and-Satin, Sis

Birthday: September 16th

Gender: Dame

Sexuality: Straight, and quite happy with that

Height: 5 feet. Yes, I’m very short. Deal with it, dollface.

Timezone/What time and date is it there: September 1st, 2:20am

Average hours of sleep per night: Sleep? What is this ‘sleep’? 

Last thing I googled: DNA helix sequences and restriction enzymes


My most used phrase:  Tsu Kusanagi. Who’s this please?

First word that comes to mind: Tank

What I last said to a family member: “Orrie, she has IQ a circumference smaller than my bust size, and she likes Twilight. No, no, NO.”


One place that makes me happy and why: Saul’s apartment - there’s a piano, and there’s Saul. 

How many blankets I sleep under: It…depends? Does Saul count as a blanket?

Favorite beverage: Tea

Last movie I watched at the cinema: The Expendables 3


Three things I can’t live without: 1) Saul, Orrie, AG, and Tec Fox 2) Dancing 3) Music

Something I plan on learning: Chess boxing, quantum theory, patience

A piece of advice for all of my followers: Carpe Jugulum. Oh, and in life, nothing’s certain except death, taxes, and idiots - but having people you trust to watch your back’s pretty good too.

Tagging: AG, and Toad Consular, just so you can see I’ve done it!

The colour on these is just gorgeous. I may have to ask for some advice from Mr. Wolfe about possibly growing one or two of these (and a Dracula).

Quote of the Day

…it was only out of curiosity, to see what the female stalker would do, that I kept going and posted myself in a doorway across the street from Putz’s entrance. My curiosity was soon satisfied.

She came right along straight to my post, stopped, faced me at arm’s length, and spoke. “You are Archie Goodwin.”

I raised my brows. “Prove it.”
