So, uh, I guess we can do some Q&A?


Gen X / Nah / Dirty Water and Dropkick Murphys

No, I mean gender?

Still nah (but sometimes maybe?).

No, I mean gender what do you have in your pants?


Ugh, fine, what pronouns do you use?

She/her and they/them are both fine with me, thanks for asking!

What is your personal style?

“There appears to have been a struggle.”

Are you married?

Yes, I’m married to an absolutely wonderful person who is sweet, kind, and caring and makes me laugh a lot. 😊 

Do you have any kids?

I have one kid who is objectively the coolest kid in the world, full stop.

So you’re straight?

Haha, no.

Where did you grow up?

Home of the Wiffle Ball.

What does your ancestry look like?

Somewhere between snow and mayonnaise.

No, really.

No, really yourself.

Northwestern European mutt, mostly English, Irish, and Scottish with a little French and German for flavor. See? Whitey McWhiterson.

Why do you say you’re a spoonie?

I have several chronic conditions. Everything is currently well-controlled with meds, but I still have more off days than I’d like.

Where have you traveled?

Too long for this page, see here.

What do you like?

Here’s a short list of things I like:

  • Profanity
  • Kindness
  • Family – those I was born into and those I chose intentionally (I’m a relationship anarchist, so all relationships are important to me, whether they are friends, family, romantic partners, etc.)
  • John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
  • Hugs
  • Nerds of all flavors
  • Lists
  • Reading
  • Snogging
  • Lab safety
  • Spreadsheets
  • The sound of rain on my tent at night
  • Water (both for drinking and for being in)
  • Autumn
  • Snow
  • Planning trips and traveling (preferably abroad but I’ll take what I can get)
  • Pretty much anything I can do with my hands: Knitting, crochet, throwing and glazing pottery, cross stitch, painting (canvases-mediocre, miniatures-pretty good), tatting, power tools, building and fixing shit, LEGO
  • Animals (kitties!!!)
  • HUGS
  • Giving gifts
  • Thunderstorms
  • Handsome ladies, pretty guys, and cute enbies
  • Olive oil 
  • Photography
  • Good ergonomics
  • Cuddling under a cozy blanket
  • Spicy food (but sometimes spicy food doesn’t like me)
  • Closeness and intimacy 
  • H U G S
  • Camping
  • Games (video, board, RPG – I’m always a magic user if it’s an option, and I can’t bring myself to be a dick, even if it’s just make-believe)

That’s a lot.

And that’s not a question. But yeah, I know. I’m a wordy motherfucker, that’s why I have a blog for all of my hot takes and I constantly spam Bluesky with shitposts.

So what don’t you like?

  • Jerks
  • Olives
  • Being called a “lady” or a “woman”
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Not being in the water at the beach
  • Migraines
  • Cruciferous vegetables other than Brussels sprouts
  • Seriously, why are so many people jerks?
  • Seafood. I can do white fish, or tuna in sushi, but no matter how many times I give it a chance (and believe me, I’ve tried), I just really don’t like it.
