"You know, the glitterberries! The ones that fill your mouth with beautiful sparkling glitter when you bite into them. Those are the ones that make you act weird. I mean until you spread your shimmering wings and fly away."

New name, same old me :)

There's not much to tell about me. I'm a nymphet who never was, a genius who was once and never will be again, a butterfly who will never be, and now I am nothing. One day, perhaps, I will be a beautiful disaster.

I invented the Deschanel incest ship, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! ;) I love fandom incest and crossgen. FANDOM, LJ. Don't be striking me through for that shit.

My journal is mainly about fandom and day-to-day life. I rarely write about "important" things. That doesn't mean I don't think about them. I just rarely feel like discussing them with people. So if you're looking for things political or academic, you're probably in the wrong place. You're welcome to disagree with me about whatever, but generally speaking, if I don't know you, or at least who the hell you are, before you start arguing with me, I'm just going to think you're a douche and ban you. Basically, if you're here to tell me I'm an idiot, introduce yourself first. It's really only polite.

I don't use many capital letters. Not sure why. I understand that some people find this annoying. Hopefully you understand that I don't care.

For some reason I'm incredibly anal about having exactly 100 interests. I change them around regularly as a result.

If there's anything on my LJ you particularly like, save it, because I delete most of my newsitem/articles-with-rants-attached/"hey, lookit that!" entries once they're off the front page of my journal, unless I want to keep the comments for prosperity posterior posterity.

Don't take friend cuts personally, unless you think you have reason to. Generally I just can't keep up with my flist and we've pretty much stopped talking. And there's no real reason for us to remain friended. If you've friended me, please say something! I don't tend to add people back unless I know who you are, plus I like knowing why someone wants to read my LJ! :)

I voted for Hillary Clinton in the '08 primaries and I'm still not sold on Obama Obama's grown on me. I don't hate him, but I don't think he's all that great either. And my god am I tired of people acting like I'm worse than Hitler when I say that.

I'm pro-choice. But I still reserve the right to think people stupid for their decisions.

I'm weirdly obsessed with the Duggars. Despite my loathing for the parents (and Josh and sadly now Anna too), I have genuine affection for Jana through Johannah Jennifer Jordyn-Grace Josie (and I hope that's the last time I have to update that bit. Seriously, nineteen is freaking enough), as well as Mackynzie and Michael, and I hope to every god out there that they live good and happy lives once they get the hell outta the compound. NUMBER TWENTY IS ON THE WAY. HOW?! WHY?! RIP little Duggarlet. Sorry we won't get to see you born, but trust me, you're better off in the next world.

I don't hate people who believe in animal welfare or animal rights. I'm a believer in the importance of the animal welfare cause myself. I do, however, hate self-righteous hypocrites, which describes nearly every PETA member I've ever met, who seem more interested in causing a fuss and getting attention than actually helping animals. I'm also a strong supporter of responsible animal breeding done to better a breed of dog, cat, horse, whatever. I think people who lump them in with puppy mills and people who create designer mutts are incredibly stupid. Animal rescue is a good thing, but so is responsible animal breeding and breed preservation. Otherwise we'll just have the bulldogs who can barely walk and the needle-nosed and pea-brained Arabians that are sold as primo halter specimens. And it's heartbreaking, but I support kill shelters and legalizing American horse slaughter. Irresponsible, stupid, ignorant people have made those things a sad necessity.

I don't belong to any specific religion. I consider myself pagnostic - agnostic pagan (dunno if that's a "real" made-up word; as far as I know I coined it, but it's so obvious I'm sure other people have thought of it) with a heavy vein of Catholicism - but I see truth in parts of most of the religions I've studied (the lone exception being Scientology - I haven't found anything redeeming there yet, but who knows, maybe someday...), and I feel no need to commit to a specific one when no religion fits my beliefs. I don't believe in changing my mind to suit a religion. I don't think that's what spirituality is supposed to be about.

I used to want to be a doctor, before I realized you had to be smart. I still love medical books and DiscoveryHealth, though. (And god am I pissed that Oprah bought them out to make her own channel. Yet another reason I hate Oprah.)

So that's pretty much what you can expect from my journal. If you think I'm a complete moron, you're still welcome to comment, as long as you're civil and interesting about it.

PS - I have a girlfriend called ginevra_alessa and she's amazing and I love her more than Fluttershy loves cute animals.
