Who am I?

I used to be more of a compulsive doer of crafts and organizer of events but now I'm quieter and I love to spend my time at home (or traveling to your home?) with a few good people and a few good projects. I moderate the knit_in_public community and queerottawa. I believe that making things is a revolutionary act. I believe that being happy is a revolutionary act. I believe that speaking up about your feelings is a revolutionary act. I am in love with people who love art and with people who love people. I love blasphemous wind-up toys, ignored type-os, eating frozen waffles while they are still frozen, queers who love themselves, cuddling other peoples’ dogs, crying when I need to, having lots of dishes, knitting in public, telling telemarketers that I am a lesbian (it's fun for shock value, and it's political), decorating my space, and surprising people with my hidden skills.
I also like squirrels and umeboshi venegar. (But not together!)

I really like the book Health Care Without Shame and I think you should read it. It's now kindly available free online.

My next adventure will be integrating myself into student life in a new city, after 8 years away from higher education. This time, I feel like things are on track and I'm really excited to dive in even if it means that I'll be busy, stressed and kinda poor. I'll be studying a pro-choice feminist health care modality. Finally!

I hate inter-personal drama. LJ drama is fun to watch, sometimes, but I opt out of the equivalent in my own life. I screen my comments on all public posts, and I don't bother commenting on volatile issues online bacuse I think there is better work to do in the real world and I want to save my energy for it.

I'm a really calm person and I like being with people who are comfortable *not* talking as much as they are comfortable sharing what's important to them. I also like to cackle and laugh with people, especially with those who appreciate it when I'm dancing in the car. I love to wrestle in the dirt, and I love to look pretty in expensive high heels. I'm told that I appear both fragile and macho at the same time. I don’t like vacuuming and I generally don’t like meeting new people unless they’re already a friend of a friend. If you are too optimistic, I will be suspicious of you as I prefer to make intimate frienships with people who are survivors of grief and loss. Sometimes I get over myself and reach out and find some surprisingly delightful person who is the perfect combination of safe and interesting, and sometimes I push my boundaries and reach out even when it's not comfortable. I’ve yet to meet a vacuum cleaner that I don’t dislike. Not even the $300 magenta ones.

Most of my posts are friends-only. I primarily use this space to keep in touch with my extended family of friends across the US and Canada. I like to think that even the few LJ friends on here that I haven't yet met are my actual friends. Before you add me to your friends list please introduce yourself to me. I like to keep my friends list quite limited, so I might not add you back even if you've got some of this goin' on:
1) we know each other in real life
2) we have mutual friends
3) you are a fabulous & radical queer
4) we have a lot in common on our profiles
5) your artwork blows my mind and/or your crafts inspire me.

I hope you'll respect that.
