100 Truths Tag

I found this tag on Sarah Withers' blog, who got it from Lala's Book Reviews. I couldn't resist giving it a try myself...



1 – What’s your name? 

Jessica Claire Powell.


2 – Any nicknames or aliases? 

Everybody just calls me Jess. Online I mostly use my blog name, babiafi, as profile names because I'm unoriginal and lazy. I tend to change my fandom pseud every two or three years.

Female

Leo. Hear me roar.


5 – How old are you? 

33.

Kind of. My mum and dad have a dog called Molly who we consider ourselves part time owners of.

No tattoos and just my earlobes are pierced now, the others (about 7 others in my ears and my right eyebrow) have all closed up.
