I wasn't going to post here, but I just looked and the last two months have been the slowest months on my journal in the last year and a half, so apparently a lot of my friends have drifted off. I've met some people here that I get along with well, so...

I've had my journal since 2010 and I post frequently... perhaps excessively. Regarding age, I am not 30 anymore but I'm not 40 yet.I have a serious science obsession and when it's not freezing and miserable outside I like to go take pictures and talk about science-y things, and I occasionally post random science things (which I should do more of). I read a lot, but it's all science nonfiction, so if you want to talk about the latest novels, I'm probably the wrong person. I also very rarely go see movies, although I do have my favorites (the list would probably start with "Usual Suspects" and include "Fight Club", "The Breakfast Club", "Labyrinth", "Goonies", "Lord of the Rings"...). I don't watch much consistently on TV except UFC and other mixed martial arts, but no one I know is into that, so I don't really talk about it.

I post lots of pictures of my cats. I also collect pictures of particular men that I like to look at pictures of. My journal here started out as a "Lord of the Rings" slash fanfic journal, and that's how I met a lot of my best friends, and it's still something I write and enjoy writing for my friends that read it. I you like to read such things, that would be very awesome. If not, feel free to skip it. Not all of my friends are interested in such things.

I comment on posts if I can think of anything to say. If your posts mostly consist of: "J. said thisandthisandthis to S. and OH MY GOD and then K. went to the club and was dancing with R. and she was supposed to be with P." or things like that, there's an excellent chance I will not have much to say. I would prefer people who are interested in actually reading posts and commenting occasionally... I don't see much point in being a lurker. On the other hand, I post a wide variety of stuff and don't expect all friends to be interested in all of it.

I am an atheist and a scientist and I respect all religious beliefs as long as people don't try to force them on everybody else, but I do greatly enjoy making fun of hardcore religious nut jobs. If you think the world is 6000 years old, you won't like my journal because yes, I will be posting things making fun of people like you. Sorry. Just sayin'.

I did the drinking thing and the other substances thing when I was younger and it's all out of my system now, pretty much. I'm married and raising my stepdaughter. There really isn't any drama about my husband and I because... well, there isn't.

I like makeup and nail polish and bath stuff. I have Tourette's, but that does not mean I shout obscenities or anything like that... I just have tics. You wouldn't stare if you saw me in the street or anything like that. It didn't keep me from working with kids and families doing behavioral health work for seven years. I have wasted a lot of time in higher education in various subjects.

I would really like people to talk to.

I swear. I seem to lack a concept of TOO MUCH INFORMATION, at least in my journal.

The fact that I write slash fiction does NOT need to deter guys from coming on over... I have several male friends who just ignore that stuff and read the other things, which is most of my posts.

I think that's more than enough, don't you?

Thanks,
Ruby
