Back to our regularly scheduled profile.
I don't have a very clear self-summary anymore. In previous years it would have been very simple-- writer, or metalsmith, or Linguistics student, or aspiring musician, or... But right now, it's all in transition. Well, all right, not all of it. It's just that the constants sound silly when I say them. I shall do it anyway.
I'm very intelligent. I have a dry sense of humour, intermingled with a lot of "that's what she said" jokes. I drink more than I probably should. I'm in the middle of a divorce, which is going quite amicably but still leaves me somewhat at sea. (I initiated.) I have a lot of snakes-- six corns, one Chinese green snake, four carpet pythons, two Tanimbar pythons, and a royal python, for those to whom that means anything. I stopped fighting the fact that I am a goth some years ago, because if they keep telling you that, who are you to argue? I do wear a lot of black and make corsets. But these days my black is more likely to be the little-black-dress sort, though it always comes along with brightly coloured hair.
I Make Things. Over the years these things have included stories, drawings, silver jewelry and larger objects, corsets, other clothing, music... And there was the one regrettable class the first time I went to college for which I had to do a piece of Performance Art. But we don't talk about that. Mainly because it's not all that interesting.
I've lived in six states and 2 countries. I only dance when I'm very drunk. But goddamn, do I sing a mean karaoke.
I also have cool hair.
