I have a very wry sense of humor, and I tend to play word games with the things I say, purely for my own amusement. Most people never notice, and I would hardly expect them to, but it keeps me entertained. I have a pretty wide vocabulary, and I tend to use it. I was essentially raised by books, and I don't really notice it. I think it causes a lot of people to find me ostentatious, and using words like 'ostentatious' probably doesn't help. I consider myself to be a pretty humble person at the core, though. But I suppose that's what most arrogant people would say, anyways. So, you'll just have to decide for yourself. Hopefully you'll like me.
So, I used to say in this part of my profile that I was trans. However, the road to identity is one that is winding and fraught. I can't honestly say if I have the answers to any of the big questions about self. So, I guess you may as well call me genderqueer, non-binary, whatever. I still like pretty dresses.
Why is it only 'has dogs.' Is it that unlikely to just have 1?
I have a single dog, and she is the best.
My Myers-Briggs type is NFP, with no strong preference towards introversion or extroversion. Seriously.
I just finished up a season of driving horses in a circle and shouting at tourists on Mackinac Island for the summer. I will probably go back to do the same thing, sometime this spring. In the meantime, I am working on my writing and making ends meet. Well, I am also driving for Lyft in the meantime. I may actually end up doing that instead, depending on how it's going.
