Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a curiosity, depending more on my brain and the rules of logic
than on emotion or instinct. That doesn't mean that I don't have
emotion and instinct, or that they are ignored, but they are
subject to examination and interrogation before they come into
I read. All the time. I enjoy well-reasoned works on political and
social issues, as well as quite a bit of sci-fi/fantasy genre
fiction. I have excellent taste in music and tend to catch bands
when they are still in their $10, playing in small clubs phase. I
also know and enjoy classical music and art, so I'm not a complete
philistine. I equally enjoy camping and fishing and drinking beer
over the meal that was just cooked over a fire.
I'm a dog person. Fully and completely. I currently have a rescued
Smooth Collie who is my lee in life. We're working on training for
several performance events, including herding and agility.
I'm not squeamish or silly in the least (except when it comes to
Palmetto bugs, which are giant, aggressive, flying cockroaches that
live in the South, from whence I hail).
I have a master's degree in English, work in the non-profit field,
am very progressive politically and am a feminist. Yes. A feminist.
And fat. No, I am not afraid to declare myself as such.
I'm an odd combination of the sensual and the practical. I love
touch and sex and physical sensation, but I don't harbor illusions
of knights on horses come to make me a princess. I'd make a
horrible princess. I don't believe in traditional romance or
traditional relationships. In fact, tradition always gets my
suspicious side going a bit.
However, if you do have a horse, I might consider riding him to
rescue you and make you my princess. Complete with the frothy dress
and silly shoes....
I am Introspective, Intense, and Internal
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working for the administrative offices at planned parenthood.
It's a good job worth doing, which is a rare, rare thing
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, debate, animal trivia, bruising myself in odd places and
having little idea how I did it, drinking, yelling at the TV during
sports games, research, sleeping
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most likely my eyes and hair. I have strangely blue eyes. As for
the hair, it was, until recently, long and red. Now it's very short
and red, and that transgresses all sorts of codes of femininity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Geoff Ryman (The Child Garden and Was especially), Octavia Butler

William's Otherland series, Gael Baudino, Jacqueline Carey (oh, I
know, but it's sexy, kinky, and fun, and I also like Ann Bishop for
the same reasons, so there!) and Neal Stephenson (especially The
I'm not limited in knowledge to those genres, though, and my
collection has a great deal of range.
Movies? I adore a good post-apocolyptic film. I like dark humor. I
hate, HATE most romantic comedy.
Music? I'm an indie snob.
Food? everything. Except meatloaf, lima beans, and rutabega.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A dog in my life, Mental Stimulation, Physical Stimulation, The
occasional meal of fried catfish, cheese grits, and greens,
Caffeine, Books, Beauty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social structures, word origins, sex, stimulation
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an ethical slut. Actually, it's not even that private. I'm
pretty open about that.
I don't shave on a regular basis if I don't feel that I have to.
