Botox, trust me I've been tempted - but I resist! Think about what happens to your muscles - and your skin - if you're sick and don't move for a few days. It all atrophies! Plus, if you freeze a muscle in your face, other muscles have to compensate! And once you stop, what does that look like?

I feel more Irish than English. I feel freer than British, more visceral, with a love of language. Shot through with fire in some way.
