If I think you are interesting, I will friend you without qualms. Feel free to add me back, or if you don't want to that's fine too. I'm very open on this policy (haha, that would imply I have ANY control over what you do) and I never f-lock. I believe LJ is a good place for meeting people with like interests who are fun and outside who I would meet in RL.
I would say I was a science geek, but that would imply that I am a circus freak who bites the heads off live birds. Additionally, I was once informed that "the self-styled geek crowd is a bucketload of fail." Hmm.
It would do well for you to know that I stand for Motherhood, America and a Hot Lunch for Orphans.
In light of the recent events on LJ:
I do not condone, encourage, participate in, or otherwise associate with rape, child pornography, or incest. If it's illegal, I don't do it, read about it, write about it, look at it, belong to communities about it or touch it with a ten foot pole. I'm just making my way in the world, and documenting it along the way.
This was made for me by the lovely, lovely raisingrrrl.
