I'm actively involved in a bunch of fandoms, primarily MCU, Good Omens, and due South. I like reading, roleplaying, and medieval weaponry. I think that Terry Pratchett and Monty Python are hilarious. See below for more thorough explanations.
Things that irritate me: Prejudice, people who are rude or cruel for "fun", profanity/vulgarity, the color pink and other overly fluffy "feminine" accoutrements, too-macho posturing, people abusing other people (physically, psychologically, or verbally), animals, their environment, and/or books, alcohol, drug, or tobacco use. Whee.
The value of freedom, like air, is best recognized in its absence. --Jim Semmelroth
I just finished up a BA in Humanities and Cultural Studies and a MLIS (Master's in Library and Information Studies). I work at a small public library and will give your children books and other media that make them think. Fear me.
I am bookwormish, obsessive, and easily amused.
The library didn't only contain magical books, the ones which are chained to the shelves and are very dangerous. It also contained perfectly ordinary books, printed on commonplace paper in mundane ink. It would be a mistake to think that they weren't also dangerous just because reading them didn't make fireworks go off in the sky. Reading them sometimes did the more dangerous trick of making fireworks go off in the privacy of the reader's brain. --Terry Pratchett. Soul Music.
I am a geek and proud of the fact.
