I live in a small town in north-centeral Wisconsin. I've been married 27 years and have a 23-year-old daughter. I love my family, my life. I spend most of the time on this journal talking about whatever happens to be my current fannish obsession. I also chat occasionally about real life.

I love meta. I don't ship or slash. I occasionally write. I'm always talking about writing more. I rarely friends-lock anything. I lurk in a whole lot of fandoms and know something about almost any fandom you care to name. I love crossovers. I adore canon. I read for characters and plot. I do dark but I tend not to angst. I'm easily amused and just as easily bored. If I don't like something, it doesn't mean that I think other people shouldn't. I don't enjoy nitpicking or over-analyzing. I love debate. I will talk about almost anything. I grew up in the presence of a master of sarcasm, therefore, I rarely find it funny and usually find it hurtful and petty (even when I fall to using it). I follow characters, not actors. I like my characters to have a solid, dangerous edge to them. I am spiritual and religious; I don't think that you have to be one to be the other. I believe that by choosing inaction, you are making the poorest choice. I believe in live and let live. I don't sign internet petitions or forward any kind of feel-good glurge, even if I agree with what is being said. I think free will is everything. I've been called aggressively optimistic. I grew up on a farm, I live in the great outdoors. I'm an environmentalist, but not in the way most people define that term. I'm a feminist, but I don't subscribe to the stark political definition of that term, either.

I hate labels. I don't want to be any peg that fits in any hole. I am whatever it is that I chose to be. I'm more than four decades old and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. My daughter is one of the coolest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am painfully, desperately average. I love hanging around with brilliant people but I despise elitism. The only person you have to ever worry about being better than is the person you were yesterday.

I don't post as often as I'd like. I comment about the same. Sorry in advance.
