PLEASE read at least the top half of my userinfo/profile before adding me or commenting on my journal.

© All rights are hereby reserved on anything found within this journal be it in my entries or in the comments.

This journal is for me to write and/or link what I want to write/read. If you find it interesting that is all well and good.

I knit, take photographs, read, write and play World of Warcraft (WoW) dependent on my health on any particular day. I have multiple sclerosis, PCOS and also depression. Much of the time, though, I am pretty much fine.

I am an often pedantic polymath philomath

My bio elsewhere:
Knitter, philomath, cat-minion, married, WoW-player, PwMS, 'retired' programmer and "pedantic software/web accessibility/usability/functionality tester/QA/proofreader from HECK!"

My journal is often totally public and revealing. Feel free to read but please do not use it as a venue for flame-wars and arguments - take those elsewhere.

The English to American Dictionary

Second stanza quoted from "Traveling Dream" by Marge Piercy because it sums up my life:
 Secretly the clock is bolting
forward ten minutes at a click
instead of one. Each time
I look away, it jumps.

A week ago feels like a minute ago and something my alarm reminded me to do an hour ago feels like one second ago. Maybe this explains why I forget everything - it is more that I know I still have ages until a deadline that has already passed me by.
