Assorted personal trivia[edit]

  • I have an unhealthy relationship with my Xbox 360 (who doesn't know I'm seeing a GameCube and a PS2 on the side). I still own and play my older Nintendo systems, including the original NES with a functioning Power Pad. Some of favorite computer/video games include King's Quest, The Legend of Zelda, Ultima, Katamari Damacy, and Gabriel Knight.
  • I am trying to learn how to play the guitar, if by "trying to learn" one means that I occasionally pick it up and strum the handful of chords I know. Honestly, I play Rock Band more often than the actual guitar.
  • I believe I am 4.8 standard deviations above the average height for an American female. In layman's terms: I'm really, really tall.
  • I like orotund words and etymologies, and I enjoy any opportunity to reference my "worthless" education in religious studies, classics, and philosophy.
  • I delight in the works of J. R. R. Tolkien and Joss Whedon.
  • On 6 October 2006, my request for adminship passed, making me a sysop. Coincidentally, this was also the two year anniversary of my first edit. This has not helped me to get dates.

Merope's kittens

My kittens, Akroma and Zoë. They are not as sweet as they look here, I assure you.
