It seems I left out some things (could we ever write it all and really sum ourselves up in an entry or two?)…
I am a San Francisco transplant.
Before that, my post-grad work took me (and partner) from Kentucky to Louisiana to Maryland.
Before landing in SF and joining the then tech boom, I was a stone's throw from finishing my PhD in Feminist Theory and 20th Century Postmodern Women's Literature.
I'm in high-tech, but my cell phone is currently being held together with Scotch tape, and I've never sent a text message.
I read a lot, but probably more SF/fantasy and less highbrow fiction than I should.
I'm a member of
I haven't traveled widely, but I'd love to visit Scotland, Ireland, Italy, France, and Greece for starters.
A friend of mine recommends 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and just got back from Iceland herself.
I like the idea of mountain (or rock wall climbing), but when it boils right down to it, I'm not really the "outdoorsy" type.
I don't camp. I don't do bugs. Bright sun makes me sneeze.
I like fog.
I love the ocean - especially Maine's rugged and rocky coast.
CD's currently in my car shuffler: Shrek soundtrack (boy's favorite), Joan Osborne's How Sweet It Is, an Eva Cassidy compilation, Yo-Yo Ma plays Bach, and the soundtrack from Mona Lisa Smile. Most frequently switched in: a favorite Celtic instrumental.
(I love Celtic things and can imagine myself wearing a plaid and wandering the moors.)
I love LEGOs and Matchbox/Hot Wheels cars.
I look at this staccato list (and the earlier one), and there is still much left out. But "about me" info adds a lot to our blogs. So often we read blogs and are not even able to determine the author's name.
I look forward to finding out more about the authors of the blogs I frequent as they blog for their Secret Pals. It benefits the whole knit blogging community.
By the way, I'm Amy.
