Hello! Hi new people! Hi old friends! Policy?
Hopefully this journal will be more public and maybe more fannish than my LJ. But I don't know yet. I have made most of my friends, or gotten to know them better, through the internet, so-- I value spaces like these, and I think how we treat each other on the internet is important. But I also try to take it with a grain of salt and cut people slack, you know? So, feel free to comment and say hi-- I loooove comments! -- or feel free to lurk. *makes lurky zombie arms* Feel free to add me to your circle or take me off. I'll do my best not to take it personally. I'll also do my best to make my journal a safe and friendly space for people.Some things about me
I identify as white, female, cisgendered, and disabled. By disabled: I have an invisible illness. I don't use assistive tech other than (sexy, hip) eyeglasses and sunglasses. Learning about disability has helped me cope with my illness and I think it's also pretty dang cool to think about. Also As for orientation, my buddy were_duck
has given me the term "queered-up straight person" which I like a lot. \o/
I like to take photos which you can peruse at my Flickr Photostream
if you're interested.
I've written a few pieces of fanfic-- the index is at my LJ
. Hopefully someday I will write more.
I'm currently unemployed, taking a hiatus, "on sabbatical", resting and recuperating, doing basically nothing. This has given me the great opportunity to read lots of fic! (Primarily SGA slash, but I'm open to other stuff.)
WisCon! WisCon! The World's Leading Feminist Science Fiction Convention!
Need I say more?
My awesome, awesome friends-- I value them so much. They do wonderful things like for instance they BOUGHT ME A KINDLE FOR MY BIRTHDAY.
Oh! I grew up on a farm. I like animals a lot and I wish I had more of them in my life. I had this dream last night about adopting a dog; my mom and I were at a pet store and we both liked these little teal-colored dogs. That's the one! The teal-colored dogs, let's get one of those. (Edit to say, I suppose you could take a white dog and dye it's hair, dip it in Kool-Aid, color it with magic marker. But I think I prefer the genetic engineering way to get there.)
