Hi there!

I'm a 30-year-old visual journalist living in Mechanicsburg, where I am constantly dodging clanks and have to deal with this possessed castle, and ... oh wait, sorry, I don't live in the Girl Genius world. I do live just outside the real Mechanicsburg in Pennsylvania, which is all sorts of awesome. My journalism career has taken me from Alabama to Tennessee and Virgina to Maine, then Arizona and finally Pennsylvania. Here's some of what I do discuss in my LJ:

  • I am a bibliophile, and can't pass a bookstore without going, "ooooh, shiny!" I talk about books I've read. My favorite authors are J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts, Julia Quinn, J.K. Rowling, L. Frank Baum, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Laura Ingalls Wilder and a lot more. You usually have to pry books from my fingers. I read just about anything I can get my hands on from history to historical romances, and from mystery to manga. I also adore history, especially medieval and the Renaissance eras.

  • I'm married, but my husband is currently in the UK while he finishes his Ph.D and we get his immigration stuff sorted out. It's been interesting navigating through a long-distance marriage, but we've approached with humor, perseverance and love.

  • We're owned by three squishy kitties. I'm only getting to write this post because they have been pacified by food (and the fact that I'm at work.)

  • My job. I love what I do for a living. I also share the crazy happenings in the area where I live.

  • I knit and do various other crafts, write fanfiction, listen to oldies, instrumental, and J-Pop, debate the state of fandom with various friends, am a Mac junkie, play video and computer games, and anything else that catches my interest. I'm also an somewhat lapsed participant in the SCA and do illumination and fiber arts.

  • I do have various fandoms that I love. My favorite anime is Slayers, Rurouni Kenshin and Spice and Wolf. My favorite manga is Rurouni Kenshin, Maison Ikkoku, Victorian Romance Emma and a few more. I've finally discovered Bones and have been trying to catch up, and I'm also a Doctor Who fan -- especially the Ninth and Tenth Doctors (but I find that One is also adorable in a crotchety way). I love Zelda and the Tales video games, especially Tales of Symphonia.

  • My LJ has become a gathering crowd of many different people with different beliefs. I perch on the middle of the fence politically, and I enjoy seeing points of view from all sorts of people. I am not a person who demands comments. I am tolerant of other beliefs and know a lot of fantastic people of all faiths, nationality, etc. Don't come into this journal and disrespect them. Disagree, yes. Bashing, no. The same goes for fandom.

    My LJ is friends-locked, but feel free to comment here or there and I'll be happy to add you.
