Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a forty-something in the process of reminding herself that it's okay to have a life of my own beyond what I do for others. That I'm not a bad person if I put myself first sometimes. I have a good professional career and family and friends I love, but I'm looking to reconnect outside of my tiny circle. Being an introvert, I'm not into being a barfly, so hopefully I can find new associations in this medium.

Top 5 fandoms: Cats, Harry Potter, tabletop gaming ... wait, do I still have fandoms? I haven't thought about some of them in years. I love hearing about other people's fandoms, though, and I might find a new one I gel with in the process.

I mostly post about: Cats, observations about life, Internet, and the world, and my own life.

I rarely post about: Frivolous stuff or work details. I'm not into posting about what I had for dinner, I just feel dumb when I do that. My work talk is very technical and difficult to explain in layman's terms, and it doesn't define me, so it's just not a topic I write on much.

My three last posts were about: Politics, personal life, journal sorting out, but I owe my list a series of posts on my trip to Northern Europe last spring.

How often do you post?: It varies. Sometimes it's multiple times a day, sometimes not for weeks. It depends on what I am thinking about at the time.

How about commenting?: I like commenters who provide food for thought and civil and honest debate, but I don't play nice with people who flame or troll. It's fine to disagree and it's fine to be honest about what you think, but ad hominem attack will earn you a spot on my ban list.  I do comment when I have something to say, but expect honest opinions, not necessarily platitudes. I'm not trying to be offensive, but I also believe that only fake people say what they think people want to hear, and I try to be real.

By the way -- if you don't like politics or personal stuff, no problem. I post that stuff under a filter, and if you don't like that stuff, just let me know and I'll leave you off the filter and never think the worse of you for it.

I have subscribed to your journal. My public journal is elsewhere but I think I'd enjoy your posts. For example, an entry from January mentions courtesy and manners—I am with you 100% on that.

Tabletop gaming? It's been ages since I have, but I used to love it.

I think we'll get along well!
