Self-employed web designer, drifting steadily into PHP/PostgreSQL development these last few years, plus an increasing amount of Drupal geekery. Also sometime freelance writer/editor. Compulsive volunteer. Writer (of a more creative sort) & artist when I have time, which isn't often enough. Longtime pagan/occultist (>25 years); preferred paradigms include Wicca, Celtic paganism, chaos magic, Otherworld exploration, spiritual therianthropy, and fairy lore of the non-cute kind.
Somewhere between lesbian and bisexual; neutral on the polyamory/monogamy spectrum. Currently in a long-distance relationship with g33kboi. Non-bio, non-custodial mother of a delightful ninja child.
Grad school dropout but still academically minded, and have been known to read books on postmodernism and quantum physics for fun. Prone to daydreaming, distraction and questioning authority and tradition. Musical/aesthetic tastes highly eclectic, ranging from old-school gothic rock to mediaeval folk to symphonic metal to Bollywood soundtracks, but not including much in the way of mainstream pop. Shamelessly enjoy role-playing games and other age-inappropriate pursuits. Reside in Toronto with two cats and one dog.
Add me to your friends list if you want, but I might not add you back -- my list is almost too long to keep up with already, and I rarely add anyone who I don't know in person.
Either expand and improve my business to the point where it provides more financial stability, or pack it in and get a Real Job[TM]. Try to be a good mother to the Lynxcub, to the extent that I can in thrice-weekly visits. Try and implement Getting Things Done, or otherwise get my act together on the organizational/productivity front. Finish the work I need to do to get my Odyssean second degree. Address creativity craving by starting book and paper arts equivalent of a Stitch'n'Bitch. Also, write more fiction. Continue current trend toward healthy eating habits and exercise. Finish converting Wild Ideas, WCC and Wolf Moon web sites to Drupal. More lynx time. Finish outline for Wicca book and get into serious writing mode. Apply to the IOT's novitiate distance learning program. Go back to grad school and finish my MES. Win the lottery. Get more sleep.
Aspirations previously listed above, but now accomplished:
Doing mostly fairly well at this whole eating healthy and exercising thing, with admirable results. Getting more business in. Starting to write fiction on an almost-semi-regular basis. Actually interviewing potential new coven members on a semi-regular basis. Found OHIP-covered ADHD specialist and got assessed (result: yes indeed, combined subtype). Spiritual malaise mostly abated.
Amazon.com (for things .ca doesn't have): books, music (BTW, yes, I realize that everyone and their dog is boycotting Amazon these days for a whole variety of different reasons. I mainly keep my wish lists there because it's convenient - doesn't mean anyone has to actually buy stuff from there!)
