I'm two and a half months shy of being 32. I've been on LJ for about six years, though I've had long periods of inactivity due to 1) not having internet or 2) not having anything to say. Fair warning, I sometimes disappear for bits at a time, though I always come back. I'm trying to use it more in general in conjunction with some other blogs I have.
Some facts about me:
I live in Kansas but grew up in Michigan. I also spent a couple years living in Oklahoma City. No one understands it when I say I loved Oklahoma, but I did. I moved to Kansas to be with my husband, and I've never regretted it, but I miss OK.
My two main hobbies are reading and knitting. I do however like to write, watch TV, and sometimes bake. I do a little crocheting and want to learn more, and I like taking pictures of silly things and situations. In my LJ, I often post book reviews from my Goodreads account.
I love horror movies and anything offbeat. Some of my favorite movies: Repo! The Genetic Opera, Requiem for a Dream, The Cell, the Cube series, and Martyrs. However, I also like a good comedy or romance. As for TV shows, I'm open to anything. I'm currently finishing up the fifth season of Angel. I like most things in the Whedonverse. Also love Doctor Who and Torchwood, which brings me to my next point....
I'm a total nerd/geek. I game with my husband and run my own DnD campaign. I go to gaming conventions, collect dice, play things on the Xbox 360, and get geeky pop culture references that some of my other friends don't normally get. I'm proud of my geek cred.
My favorite artist is Tori Amos, but I have a very eclectic taste in music and am open to new things.
I do rant about things and naturally make snap judgements when it comes to media figures and celebrities. However, I don't judge the people I know (at least I try not too). My philosophy is that we're all on our own journey. My lifestyle isn't for everyone and vice versa, but I'm all about doing what you do and loving the adventure. Believe how you want, vote how you want, live how you want. As long as you're not asking me to help drown kittens or bury bodies, we'll be alright!
I rarely have anything exciting to say, and most of my LJing is ranting about work or talking about my day and upcoming plans. I do keep it friends only, but that's due mainly to the fact that it's my outlet, one that doesn't need to be known professionally. Friends only gives me a sense of security.
So I'm done rambling. If you want to add me, please feel free! If we don't sync for any reason, we can part ways later with no hard feelings. I look forward to meeting some awesome people. No comments needed unless you want to...just add/request as a friend and I'll add you back.
