Birthdate:Apr 5
Location:California, United States of America
Gothy feminist SAH mother of two (b. 2010 & 2013) with English literature B.A., who speaks Russian badly, and reads Latin worse. Publishing industry refugee who has since wandered from a Ph.D. program in English literature. Married to TT economist at a SLAC. Read lots of SFFH, some non-fiction, some literature. Semi-frequently crochet & knit. Cook as much for enjoyment as necessity, though more ethnic & healthy than frou-frou & pretentious. Enjoy theatre, film, but rarely leave home to see either. I am a chronic migraineur with persistent aura (visual snow, afterimages, variable-intensity tinnitus) and prone to nausea.

I'm also a former vegetarian/pescatarian ex-smoker who's spent 75% of her life within 20 miles of the Pacific Ocean. Began the journey of species propagation in earnest in September 2010 with the successful birth of my son, ended it with a daughter three years later (almost to the day). Have been practicing via kitty-mommyhood for longer than I can remember.

There is an LJ; not sure whether this will just be an alternate journal of similar type, or an outright different thing.
