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. 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 new fandoms and memes like this one.
So nice to meet you!
