Welcome to those popping over from the onhiddlesd friending meme. Feel free to look around - I'm not all that scary. Usually. Swear! I really do like making new friends, and having some more Tom related folks around makes me feel less insane since Hiddles took over my all facets of my fannishness. I'm so bad, I told my brother to get Wallander for our mum's birthday so I can watch them too. In my defense, she loves those BBC mysteries, so win win!

A bit about me: I'm a California native, who moved to SW Utah about 4 years ago. I now live semi-rurally, complete with a small orchard, chickens, and veg garden. I can jam and salsa, and I love this time of year because I can use my homegrown tomatoes and herbs in my kick ass grilled bruschetta. I'm thinking about getting goats so we can have homemade goat cheese as well. We're about two hours from Vegas, in the high desert, so it's very hot here in the summer. Usually 100+ most days. Being a coastal native, it's taken some getting used to!

I love to cook, and have even toyed with the idea of opening my own small cafe or restaurant one day. I have lots of cats - we ended up unintentionally becoming our own small rescue organization. If I lived on a real farm, I'd have a full blown shelter going. I watch too much TV, I love old movies, and if I love a movie, I tend to rewatch over and over and over. Also dig movie soundtracks, and have quite a collection. My favourite places include Scotland, York, Disneyland, Yellowstone, and the Pacific Northwest coast. I collect books about women who made the journey west during the westward expansion in the 1800s, and have a keen interest in that era. But I'm a history buff in general.

Fannishly, I write, and I make icons, I also run several LJ comms. I have fandom friends on LJ that I've known since 1996, when I first got online all the way to new friends I've made due to Avengers and Tom Hiddleston.

So nice to meet you!

I've been in fandom since 1995. Started out in Star Wars, but now it's grown. I still have friends from the very beginning!

It's nice having that connection still!

It is. One of them actually lives here but is sadly moving back to Cali in a week.

I know we haven't known each other that long because I only got online in 1998, but I think it's safe to say we've known each other over a decade. O.o

You're part of the reason I love fandom! It gave me my quasi-sister best friend! [hugs]

You seem interesting. Mind if I friend you?

That's a plus :D

Yes, please feel free.
