I'm a vegetarian. I won't lecture you about meat eating if you
don't make fun of my animal respect.
I love to travel, but don't often have the opportunity. I'm a
voracious reader, and am working my way through 'the classics' I

When I say I'm queer, it's a short way of saying I identify as a
lesbian but am not willing to close myself off to people based on
sex or gender. If I feel a connection, I pursue it, female, male,

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My full-time job is pursuing health. I also do my crafts and study

My height, or size, I think. Others have said it is my accent, or
my laugh, or my hair. I guess everyone notices something different.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My dog (she's a who, not a thing!)
2. My embroidery supplies
3. My spectacles
4. My copy of Borderlands and the Torah
5. Face lotion with sunscreen- I'm Irish, for god's sake, I'll burn

6. My creativity- is that a thing?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
it sounds phony, but ethics.
I'm very interested in post-apocalyptic and dystopian narratives.
(My current favorite is Adventure Time. I also really like
