  • Mood:

my new livejournal profile.

I rewrote my livejournal profile last night. I thought I would reproduce it here for your delight and delectation, and also so that it gets saved in my main journal with a timestamp. I'm sure it will change again in the future, but for the moment it's an accurate picture of who I am now.

I define as Girl. An adult, never a "grown-up". Short, not thin. Dark hair & brown eyes. Black clothes, blue boots. Neither butch nor femme nor androgynous. Occasionally feminine, but usually by accident.

Queer, polyamorous. Bisexual [1]. Resolutely childfree [2]. Geek. Disabled. Intermittently asexual [3]. Thoughtful & interested in Stuff. Half-practical, half- dreamer. Grammar pedant, but Fond of Random Capital Letters and Brackets. Loves London, food, Words, and strange Japanese video games. Life-partner of wuzzie, extremely fond of otterylexa, cares for Family of Choice, not blood.

Totem animals: Wolfy, Octopus [4].
Totem cartoon character: Buttercup from the PowerPuff Girls.

[1] I don't like the term "bisexual", but there's not a good alternative. I think of it as meaning "attracted to more than one gender".

[2] I like children perfectly well. I just don't want to have any. See childfree.

[3] See asexuality.

[4] Wolfys are like wolves, only with more fluff. There are other differences, but that's the main one.

I have 150 interests listed. Actually, I wanted to have more than that, but that's the limit. So I went through removing tautologous ones (such as "cwoa" as well as "chessington world of adventures"), and things that I wasn't that interested in.

The interests I have listed which no one else lists are: crap photography, dairy-free ice cream, linda mccartney sausages, pride flags, uncle the elephant and wuzzies. All of which are very serious interests for me!

  • New-to-me doctors never understand me

    Today I experienced the joy which is seeing a doctor who doesn't know me. Apparently my usual GP is on holiday somewhere warm, lucky woman. So I was…

  • Still alive.

    I am alive. Coping with the hiatus hernia. Perhaps in a one damned thing after another sort of way. Still, the symptoms have all improved…

  • Blargh.

    So I haven't written anything here since July, which is impressively lax even for me. In short, I have been suffering from the worst chronic fatigue…
