Short version: Stereotypical art, books, cats, plants person. Also oral cancer survivor. Feminist.

I'm always in the mood for a good friending, especially if your passions are for art, music, books and cats. If you're feeling shy, anonymous comments are welcome, though I'm currently screening. Spammers will be placed under an ancient curse.


This is an Adult Content journal, meaning that I'm over 40, er, 50, er if you're under 18, this journal would bore you to tears. There's rarely anything salacious here. Cruelty, arrogance, dogmatism, intolerance and bloody-mindedness offend me. I lean to the left, meaning that in Europe I'd be a social democrat, in the US I'm defined as a sanctimonious purist and a member of the women's studies set.
