About me? Some things:
I was born in America but I moved to Indonesia when I was a kid, then Australia. Cumulatively I've lived in Australia for nearly half my life. I finally got citizenship last year. Hurray!
I used to do a lot of hitchhiking but I've come the the conclusion hitchhiking is not a very smart thing to do.
I'm wont to indulge in a feminist rant.
I've wanted a macaw since I can remember but I'm waiting until I'm settled enough to make such a commitment (says the lady with the six-year-old).
I'm an introvert.
I don't have a car. It's inconvenient but not so bad because I like public transport and don't mind walking long distances.
Otherwise I spend my time absorbing a ridiculous amount of media.
Books: Comics, books about politics/culture/history/language.
Movies: Cowboy movies! Space movies! Kung fu movies! And other movies!
Shows: Buffy, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Freaks and Geeks and Breaking Bad. Obvs.
Music: The Mountain Goats, Micachu, Big Boi, The Magnetic Fields, They Might Be Giants.
Food: Anything Southeast Asian. Anything spicy, even.

Can I put maps in here somewhere? I really like maps.
