I have never been one for 'online' or social media. The internet for me has always been a useful tool but nothing more than that. Until now. Last week, I broke my leg. A displaced fracture. I had to have an operation to put pins in it, and naturally, I went and had a reaction to the anaesthetic because if you're going to do something, do it properly! So now I'm stuck on my ass for 'at least three months' while my body works on healing. Most of my hobbies are active and after a few days of being stuck on the couch, reading and watching TV, I'm looking for something less passive. My darling husband [personal profile] jackjanderson (we're both very creative with username ideas as you can see!) has a blog and thoroughly enjoys it so he suggested I try it and that I come over here. So here I am.

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don't know what a Tumblr or an IG are. I'm [twitter.com profile] DrSamAnderson, [last.fm profile] samanthanderson.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a scientist and a teacher but nothing like you imagine when you hear those two words. I'm the sort of walking contradiction who wears flouncy dresses with leather jackets and biker boots. Think of me as another cute blonde woman at your peril - my passions in life are physics, engineering and mechanics closely followed by tasty baked goods, especially cupcakes. My brother says my motto in life is "she's beauty, she's grace, she'll punch you in the face" and he experienced many of those punches when we were in the single digits!

Top 5 Fandoms: Doctor Who
Justice League
Star Trek
Star Wars
Anything with George Clooney in it
(I also love to watch bad sci-fi to mock it!)

I mostly post about: I've not really posted much but I'm expecting I'll post about science, books, dresses, rugby, shoes, science fiction and cupcakes. I will definitely talk about my family - mostly my husband and girlfriend. I suspect there will be much grumpiness about broken legs and plaster casts.
