Things you might find amusing or interesting
You'll see me use British spellings sometimes.
I come by it naturally: my father was English, and my mother grew up in the UK. I grew up reading a lot of British children's books, and I've kept some spellings (especially the s instead of z) one in informal writing.
I read a lot.
Probably not a surprise, as it's true for a number of librarians. My reading has been described as "Anything that sits still long enough." which is fairly accurate, but genres I read the most include:
I'm fond of 'old-fashioned' hobbies:
I play folk harp, spin yarn,
and bake bread from scratch and without a bread machine, and just picked up knitting. I find the hands-on aspects of all of these to be both tremendously satisfying, and very rewarding in communities I spend time. (Showing up at an event with home-made bread is pretty much always a win, too.)
I'm also an ardent geek and general user of technology.
I enjoy playing with the stuff. Besides the more general uses, I'm also a sometime online gamer (World of Warcraft, when I can spare an hour or two), but also text-based games in the past. I'm more interested in how a story or world fits together than how to 'win'.
