Alice over at Whatsoever Is Lovely tagged me on this, and honestly I didn't have anything prepared for this morning anyway, so here goes. Five facts about myself:
1. I have a Master's Degree in English, so naturally I went into Information Technology, where my time is split between various websites and a document management system. This is why it's so important to have goals in life: the constant surprise at Things Not Turning Out The Way We Planned helps keep you on your toes.
2. In my twenties and early thirties, I collected swords. Nowadays I collect ceramic mugs. I'm not sure that I can realistically cite this as evidence of any sort of growing up. (Especially since I still have the swords. In fact, I could outfit a good-sized group in the event of the Zombie Apocalypse.)
3. My mother is paralyzed from the waist down because of a childhood case of Polio. For a long time, my parents didn't think they'd be able to have children, but they had me in their early thirties and my brother a few years later. I don't get into discussions with anti-vaxxers, because there is absolutely no way I can do so and remain even remotely civil; I go straight to frothing rage.
4. I have never broken a bone. Not mine, and not anyone else's, either. Unless we're counting chickens -- I have broken a couple of wishbones -- but I digress. In fact, I digress fairly frequently. I also pontificate and occasionally editorialize. Wait, what was I just talking about?
5. I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. (I've been at something of a loss ever since I found out that "wizard" and "superhero" weren't really options.)
As a matter of personal policy, I generally don't tag other people on these things. However, if you're so inclined, feel free to share five facts about yourself and leave a note in the comments so I can go read them.
