Heyla, folken! If that's not a surefire way to tell it's me, I don't know what is. :)

First off:
Help end world hunger

Right, then. I'm a self-proclaimed harmless eccentric who left a small town in a hurry and took flight for the bright lights of Madison, WI. I haven't looked back, though my marsh country family home is still exactly that, and Marathon County is held similarly dear. I've been a shameless sci-fi/fantasy nut for close to two decades, and I'm generally known for one *quirky* taste in everything from music to food to career. Hellooooo run-on sentence! :)

Described in a handful of words and phrases, I'd be something like... apprentice wordsmith (writer by both training and inclination, now a crowdfunded author), one-time would-be journalist strayed faaaar from the actual field, orator and amateur actress, SouConer now and forever and darn what the server says, Millimun, gigantic, nearly shameless science fiction and fantasy geek, major oldtime and modern radio fan, DXer of all bands and active QSLer, technician class amateur radio operator (callsign shared on request), multiple variety synaesthete, literature, language and history nerd, budding gardener girl (heh, budding), catlady, increasingly interested cycling fan (in the States, who knew?), borderline socialist (more like social/liberal Democrat, if this were Europe), American liberal, progressive social and political activist, and demi-ish biromantic demi-homosensual charcoal grey-bisexual verging on ace. Oh, and just so you know, I'm not at all shy about my views on any of those last four subjects, especially where politics and homophobia collide. Whew, but that's a lot of words and phrases! There should be one more on that list. In the words of my father: Chatty Kathy. Ahem.

Also, just for info, I am, for all practical purposes, totally blind. I'm completely comfortable sharing any and all blindness-related details, so if anyone's curious about any references that might be made, feel free to ask me. On a related subject, the cute cream-colored fuzzball in one of my icons is my guide dog, Bosco the mellow yellow lab, September 5, 2000-July 29, 2013. I love you, mellow yellow.

I do have a tendency to post more than my share of fiction, kitty cat spam, and geekery, among many other things. Ye be warned. Fiction will be marked with the 'scribble' tag and any applicable warnings and placed under a cut, the better to let anyone who'd rather avoid being spammed (or poked in the brain by something) do so. Now I've got over my wariness of the tag system, most other things have a tag too. Check my tags page for a list, and take note: Charlie in Dairyland refers to events specific to my life in Wisconsin. Being a lady bluerider is an orientation/gender as continuum tag, and if you get the lady bluerider reference, you've probably played a Pern MU* too. Feeble strength of one (wiunion) is both a quote from Solidarity Forever and a reference to Wisconsin grassroots political activity (darn right I'm in the thick of it all), and 1992 is a dormant but not forgotten original fic universe. The catladiness tag rather speaks for itself. :)
