As far as astrology goes, I am a Libra born in the year
of the snake. 2001 was also a year of the snake, and what an
interesting year it was! (On a somewhat creepy note, 1941, the year
the attack on Pearl Harbor occurred, was also a snake year.) I find
astrology to be a fascinating concept - sometimes surprising, sometimes
laughable. The snake profile (Chinese astrology) seems to fit me
rather well, although I am probably not the best judge of myself.
Details on the my profile:
1977 is a fire year (negative)
snake is a fire sign (negative)
born in the hour of the rabbit (sometimes called cat), a wood sign
Libra is an air sign

Just about every personality test I have taken
has put me in the philosophical, scientific oriented compartment.
I like thinking about things. I am a perfectionist and a procrastinator.
Bad, bad combination.
Personality tests are also of interest to me. One of the most
complex I've found online is the Keirsey
temperament sorter that groups people into four basic groups with four
subcategorizes. I fall into the Rational
category, being an iNTj
(mastermind). I occasionally test as an iNTp
(architect), but the other traits (introverted, intuitive, thinking)
are very solid.
I hate moths with a passion that borders
on obsession. I keep three flyswatters in my apartment. In
the summer I keep the windows of my car rolled up all the time so they
don't fly in. I really, really hate them. Some people think
it is funny to exploit this flaw for all it is worth, but they should be
warned that I will have my revenge . . .
Well, if I knew what I wanted to do with
my life I'd be in school . . . My problem is that all the stuff
I'd like to get a degree in would qualify me for a position at McDonald's.
I've considered going into (in no particular order) architecture, mathematics,
biology, psychology, philosophy, history, graphic design, animation, classical
studies, creative writing, literature, teaching, computer science, programming,
. . . and the list goes on. For all you people who would like to
be good at everything, let me tell you that it gets damn confusing and
I wish I were really good at one thing and I sucked at everything else.
It would be like the hand of god pointing to my place in life. Right
now I just think he's laughing at me.
I think I've finally decided that I want to
be a comic book character. No, not IN a comic book, but I'd like
to be the sort of person that you might find in a comic book. Comic
book characters have lots of useful survival skills, they always look great,
and who knows if they actually work a normal job or not. I think
lots of them are independently wealthy. So whatever I end up going
to school for - who cares. You all know it's part of my plan to survive
any earthshaking calamity that could possibly happen. This means
I need to pick up few skills - bellydancing, some form of martial art,
marksmanship - and I need to wear leather a lot. And sunglasses.
I currently work at TGS
on the Digital Nautical Chart project. Basically, I convert arc/info
data to VPF format, which is the military standard used by NIMA, and sometimes
VPF data to arc/info. It's okay if that makes no sense.
Working retail sucks. I learned this
after working at House of Fabrics (now JoAnn Fabrics) for three years.
No, it did not take me three years to figure that out. I also picked
up sewing (I think everyone should learn how to sew), along with enough
fabric to clothe a small country.
Not to be anticlimactic, but this is it.
You're looking at my playtime, right now. My drawings are in the
sketchbook - you can go scoot over and check them out - and my writing
stuff is also up there. I also roleplay with the NorthCoGamers
(a highly interesting bunch of people). I've been a gamer for around
eight years now.
Getting in touch with me:
I am a member of the Society for Creative
Anachronism, a medieval recreation group, but I am currently on hibernation
status because I'm simply too busy, and the night schedule thing messes
with dance practice. Dammit. But the SCA is wonderful!
I had the privilege of fighting heavy weapons for a while - yes, I've actually
gotten in armor and whacked people with rattan swords. It's a terrific
stress reliever. I fought in the first Great Western War. LONG
LIVE THE OUTLANDS!
Email me. Best
possible way. I can't promise I'll answer promptly, but I'll answer
eventually. Sometimes my life gets pretty busy, so be patient.
One out of two isn't bad, right? Since I work nights, trying to get
in touch with me by phone is difficult.
Or you could sign my guestbook.
I will be your friend forever. Or at least until someone else signs
