Hi! ... it's been four... or five... or maybe even ten years since I've updated my user page so it's about time I get on it, right? A little about me... I'm a forever homesick Kiwi (I miss the beaches) currently living in Melbourne, Australia. My husband and I have a miniature dachshund called Lenny who is the most goobertastic sausage you could ever hope to meet.
As my username suggests, I have an interest in editing articles related to beauty pageants, which in more recent years has become quite a controversial topic on here. I feel disappointed in many users characterisation of pageant titleholders, but I am also well past accepting the reality that most of the early bio articles created by myself and others will be deleted as opinions on notability have shifted over time. That said, not all fail notability and I believe each article should be considered on its merits. I'm also a strong supporter of appropriate referencing, which unfortunately can't be said for all users in that topic area - please, when it comes to this at least, I'm one of the good guys. Basically: despite many people believing the contrary, I'm on a mission to improve things, and I don't like the stereotypes that exist.
Beyond that, I have interests in other areas and will never be afraid to jump in and edit as my whims take me. I am an INTP after all.
Some (really!) old honours...
Wow! I just received my first barnstar :) Thanks ßlηguγΣη!
