Note: I have ground rules for interaction in my journal. Said ground rules, and my 'friending' policy, can be found here.
If you've recently added me and want to let me know, the intro post can be found here.

I'm a queer, fat, feminist able-bodied cis-woman of colour. I live in Brisbane, Australia with my partner, stephendann, after being born in Sydney, moving to Brisbane in 2003 and recently returning after a 3yr (very cold!) stint in Canberra.

I've completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Sociology, Applied Ethics and Politics at QUT. I was planning to apply for an Honours program, until my final semester, in which QUT management decided that Universities don't need Arts programs, or Creative Industries needed our funding, or something. After that, I decided I didn't want to continue my studies at a University isn't.

So now I'm working as a Case Manager for a large Workers' Compensation Insurer, which is actually more interesting than it sounds, believe it or not.

I tend to babble about tv shows a bit; though often not very coherently. I dabble around the edges of fandom in a not particularly participatory (for productive forms of participatory) way.
