**As of December, 2011: I'm studying Flamenco guitar and loving it.
Ye gods, I think I finally found an instrument I want to devote
myself to properly!
Currently I'm enjoying the novelty of having a gig in the
profession for which I'm trained! Taxonomy at Amazon is rather
labyrinthine and I'm hoping that the day I meet the minotaur is the
day I brought home-made biscuits and mulled rosemary cider to
share. Bonus points if you didn't think I stuffed animals for their
lobby art... extra bonus points and a fresh-baked cookie however,
if you envisioned me stuffing hierarchical names and RT's into an
ascii-art Penguin. :)
My time is also invested in building outdoor cob
ovens, recreational terraforming,
learning how yoga is like a slower form of Kung-Fu on acid, and
working on my skills in weather prediction (this year continues to
be a serous challenge round).
Ah... and RPG's and board games.
Finished grad school Spring of 2007 and at graduation managed to
apply temporary Librarian Tattoos (All Hail Archie McPhee's!) to
nearly every peer, some profs and even the Dean Emeritus.
MWahahahaa! Many thanks to my partner for support, I only hope her
"half a Master's Degree" is decent compensation. :)
I'm trained in the ancient Librarian arts and consider myself bound
to them culturally. Yet it's dead-Librarian boots in Seattle and
Social Justice organizations can only barely pay a living wage.
Hence my sniffing around Redmond and corp America as a taxonomy
analyst. Granted, this officially means I sold my soul but I got a
phenomenal roi and am passing the surfeit on to loan payments,
local dance and circus groups ( On The Boards
and Circus Contraption
and supporting my second favorite podcast: Decoder Ring Theatre
As well, I occasionally help with construction/remodeling, dabble
in martial arts, yearn to find a softball/baseball
league and watch movies of all
flavors. I'm also a sound-wrangler and dogs-body for the Superhero
Podcast at http://cobaltcity.libsyn.com
/ ... and I sing to the wind
to pay for my crossings on the Puget Sound.
