Um, hello. *waves*
I'm a woman (*snort* DUH); am over 30 (so you can't trust me *snicker*); married and am a mom; work as a professional picture framer at an art restoration shop in the Washington DC area; worship at the altar of Heinlein, Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Stephen King, Spider Robinson, Piers Anthony, Christopher Stasheff, Marion Zimmer Bradley as well as Ursula Le Guinn and other awesome literary gods. *BG*

An example of how weird I am? I love to read psychology and psychiatry medical research papers on ADHD and emotional disorders... FOR FUN. Okay, okay, for personal edification as well, but still... *snicker* I haven't had much time to read my journals lately though, as the writing bug has firmly latched onto my jugular (like a certain pesky Iratus bug we dare not mention around Sheppard *snort*), and is not allowing me any other avenues of self-expression at the moment. *sobs* My poor PhotoShop is feeling SO neglected!

As for other entertainment, I can only say that my early development was heavily influenced by Looney Tunes and Monty Python's Flying Circus. And Douglas Adams. You ever listen to the Hitchhiker's Guide radio series? Bloody friggin' brilliant, m'dears.

Fell in love with SGA even before I'd ever once watched an episode of SG1, would you believe? Anywho, I'm not a proliferate writer by any stretch of the imagination, although the stories I do write end up being pretty long. I'm an avid reader of all kinds of stories... het, slash and gen... and am unabashedly a whumpaholic. *BEG* Especially when it concerns Rodney McKay. What can I say? I'm hopelessly addicted to the man. ;) And as much as I love reading slash, I am unfortunately way too scared to ever write it. Sorry folks. I tend to limit myself to staying within the general parameters dictated in the show. Hey, I wanna be a scriptwriter someday! Maybe. If I don't suck grandly at it. *BG*

Oh, and PS - if you check out the people I've on my favorite authors list, you won't be disappointed. I chose them because I love every single story they've ever written. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. Go. Read. They're brilliant. :)

*snicker* I can see it now... they're both in the throes of passion (with each other, of course)... and Rodney breathlessly whispers "I... so... frickin... hate... you... right... now...", and John flashing his megawatt grin with a whispered return of "Oh yeah, I feel the same way, McKay" as he does something totally illegal in 27 US states with his tongue... *snickersnort* Well done, m'dear. ----}-@ Krys

*raises hand* This is bloody fantastic. You're describing the shock that Rodney's in so clearly and graphically. A part of my mind as I was reading through this has been screaming "HE'S BLEEDING INTERNALLY!!! HELP HIM!!!" Totally exquisite writing. Take a bow, m'dear. I'm enthralled by this. ----}-@ Krys
