-I’ve got two cats: Skeeter and his mother, Chalupa. He was named after the Muppet. She was named after a delicious food.
-I went to NCSSM for my junior and senior years of high school. College was UNC Chapel Hill: psychology and women’s studies.
-I have a ridiculously hard time remembering my age these days. Once I hit 22, I just stopped paying attention, I think.
-My birthday is 12/12.
-My favorite colors lately are green, blue, and purple.
-I think Living Dead Dolls are insanely cute. I’d like to collect them – but I’m ridiculously slack about it. So far I’ve got only got four: Sadie, Deadbra Ann, Louis Sapphire, and Lottie.
-I love Lightlife’s Fakin’ Bacon.
-I have two younger sisters. But I’m pretty much estranged from my whole family. (Long story, and pretty much related in the blog already.)
-I write with my left hand, but I’m dominantly right-handed.
-An awesome woman I used to babysit for taught me to knit when I was around twelve. Then I pretty much didn’t knit again until college, at which point I re-taught myself from a book. As far as I can tell, I knit using a bastardization of Scottish style, thanks to the self-re-teaching.
-I have twelve tattoos, and ten piercings. (My belly ring closed after my gall bladder surgery.) But only three piercings are non-ear: double nostril and labret (and ex-bellybutton).
-My pain threshold is not so high.
-My alcohol tolerance level is also rather low.
-My current grrlcrushes are Mardi Love, Caliope Kane, and Myrna Loy.
-Hobbies: bellydance, reading, knitting, crocheting, sewing, anything arts and crafts, roleplaying.
-I love “good smelly things” and makeup.
-My favorite tv shows are Doctor Who, Fringe, Lost, Poirot, Jeeves and Wooster, Monk, and Eureka.
-My favorite movies are Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Playing by Heart, Practical Magic, Cold Comfort Farm, The Thin Man, and Lost and Delirious. But I also have a penchant for bad movies, cheesy movies, b-movies.
-My favorite books are Sergei Lukyanenko’s Dozor series; Jane Yolen’s Great Alta series; Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Avalon books; Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Marple books; Clive Barker’s Abarat series; Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series; Francesca Lia Block’s Dangerous Angels series; James Howe’s Bunnicula books; Umberto Eco’s Name of the Rose; Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series; Stephen King’s Dark Tower series; and George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series.
-At heart, I’m really a little old lady:
I have cats.
I really love going to bed early and getting plenty of sleep.
I’m frequently crotchety.
See? Little old lady.
And I think Miss Marple rocks.
You just can’t beat mad-detective-skillz AND knitting.
-I am a total fucking pottymouth.
-I like cool colors better than warm colors.
-I don’t really consider myself a yarn snob. And I’m an unabashed fan of Lion Brand and Red Heart. But I also like “high-end” yarns. There are some AWESOME new natural fibers and new synthetics coming out all the time.
-I don’t have any allergies that I know of, other than seasonal. Although my seasonal allergies are real bitches.
-And while we’re discussing my health, I also have asthma, panic disorder, and generalized anxiety. And I no longer have a gall bladder.
-I definitely have a sweet tooth.
-I don’t think I’ve met a craft or DIY project I didn’t like. My current side-projects involve looking for Edwardian- and Victorian-era crafts, getting better at sewing, and all sorts of stuff for bellydance.
-I dye my hair quite frequently. And frequently I dye it crayon-box colors. Although I’ve had to cut back lately, due to damage from constant bleaching.
-My favorite number is 6.
That’s all I got for now.
