So, here I am, on Dreamwidth. It's pretty shiny.

It occurs to me that this is probably a good time to reintroduce myself - to any new folks I'll meet here, and to the people who've had me on their flists for months or years and can't really remember where I came from.

  • I'm thirty three, female, Australian/British. (Born in and live in Australia, but I hold dual citizenship.)

  • My first degree was in genetics, but I haven't worked as a scientist since a road accident in 1998 left me with some long-term mobility issues; I can't comfortably sit on hard surfaces (like lab stools) and I can't run in the event of chemical spills.

  • I'm a long-time geek; I've been playing roleplaying games regularly for more than half my life. We're currently playing Shadowrun.

  • I used to write for roleplaying games as a freelance writer - I wrote for Shadowrun, White Wolf's Demon: the Fallen and a bit of general World of Darkness stuff, as well as some one-offs for smaller publishers that never saw the light of day. I stopped when burnout and fairly serious depression caused me to flake on a few jobs; I burnt a few bridges and let people down, which I still regret, but I only rarely miss the actual job.

  • I'm a computer gamer; at the moment I'm playing WoW, and have been for four years. I write a fairly popular WoW blog for holy paladins called Banana Shoulders.

  • I'm currently single, and not looking for a relationship at the moment for health reasons (long-term complications from the above-mentioned accident). However, it does get rather lonely sometimes, and I'm looking forward to being well again.

  • I am a terrible procrastinator, easily distracted, and prone to on-off depression. As you can imagine, I don't get much done a lot of the time :)

So that's me. Hi!

Yo. I'm openIDing over here until... well, I'm not sure. Last thing I need is another journal, though I have cupiscent on every other journal platform (a blatant lie - I try not to go anywhere near journalfen) so why not this one? Anyway, using this as an opportunity to explore the functionality of openID. No idea how "add to my circle" will work like this, but I'm about to try it out!

From the brief poking around I've been doing, there do indeed appear to be many shiny things about DW. Already having a blog, a fandom journal, and an RP journal on three different servers makes me uneasy about opening a fourth front. Inertia and the depth of roots makes me loath to abandon LJ. But I suppose we shall see what transpires; it's about community, after all. Fresh start and creativity highly encouraged, in any case! *G*

I've known kyuuketsukirui/[personal profile] torachan for ages, so that seems very possible! :D

Whee, vids! I'm in favor of vids! :)

I found Banana Shoulders via a link from TooManyAnnas.com -- I'm in Anna's raid. :) My paladin alt is 73, but I'm thinking of snapping up dual-spec for her anyway -- she was originally rolled to be a PvP healer, but hasn't done that for years; I just recently leveled her through Outland, prot, but people have been taking bets on how long she'd go without a respec to Holy. /facepalm
