In addition to informing us about her lovely, hearty and English breakfast with a cup of oh soo lovey and English tea she has delusions of adequacy:
Her passion is also (taken from her brief bio) Epistemiology, Metaphysics, Ethics and Aesthetics, she is also writing a book which central theme is Fractals (can't wait to read this one).
