About me

Occupation science geek
Introduction I'm an unrepentant science nerd. I talk too much, read voraciously, and have mostly given up swearing. I have degrees in geology and creative writing, but my job doesn't have too much to do with either. I'm married to MB, the greatest guy on the whole entire planet. We're doing our best to raise a good dog (adopted April 2008) and happy kids (born January 2010 and February 2013). It's not always easy, but together we're finding our way.
Interests Reading, writing somewhat passable fiction, hiking, canoeing, general being-outdoors-ness, listening to music, hanging out with friends, board/card games
Favorite Movies Easy A, Tucker & Dale vs Evil, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Usual Suspects, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Princess Bride, O Brother Where Art Thou?
Favorite Music Cowboy Junkies, Tori Amos, Lucinda Williams, Modest Mouse, Incubus, Godsmack, Flogging Molly, Cake
Favorite Books Let's try authors instead: Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, JRR Tolkien, Amy Tan, Haven Kimmel, Sarah Addison Allen, Brunonia Barry

The wicked backspin caught you off guard. How will you play it off without losing your footing?

I will pirouette and take a bow.
