"More than a little eccentric" does not sound promising.

You Are Midnight

You are more than a little eccentric, and you're apt to keep very unusual habits.

Whether you're a nightowl, living in a commune, or taking a vow of silence - you like to experiment with your lifestyle.

Expressing your individuality is important to you, and you often lie awake in bed thinking about the world and your place in it.

You enjoy staying home, but that doesn't mean you're a hermit. You also appreciate quality time with family and close friends.

Most people think missing this city is completely daft.

But for some reason I am very fond of it. It holds many bookish memories for me, pleasant ones of solitude and sometimes of company. Lots about learning, but I never felt I learned enough. Which is why a PhD is in order, I suppose.

Plans for world domination:

To console myself about the disadvantages of being such a peculiar personality, I like to imagine there are other young women who curl up with Latin workbooks and Jane Austen films on summer evenings when anything beyond the company of family and dearest friends seems overbearing. Much of the time I doubt many others of my demographic exist, but am further comforted by Ray Bradbury's astonishment at how well we conceal ourselves under floorboards and large boulders. I would have expected, though, that like would call to like some of the time at least.

Is two a number too high to call "too few"? I will say that when the three of us are together, the world might bow before us like the Venetian waiters did, and bring us extra (free) almond biscuits.
