As a child, instead of taking away tv or other privileges, my mother used to take away my library card because she thought it would teach me to behave. What it actually taught me was to check out the maximum number of books allowed at one time so that I would still have books around the next time I misbehaved.

In addition to reading, I like sewing, gardening, all things related to food, and I am active in environmental and social justice causes. I am Puerto Rican by birth (well, my parents' really) and Jewish by choice, and that has made for some interesting life experiences. I have been happily married for 15 years and we are childfree. Someone once described me as an onion-as in with many layers-and I'm hoping to live up to that.

I've been in fandom for about 15 years, but only discoverd LJ a couple of years ago after a WisCon-related bit of fail, and am transitioning to DW after unacceptable shenanigans on LJ's part. I am always learning from and growing because of my online community, and for that I thank you.

I need to emphasize that learning is not always fun or easy, and if you see something here that you disagree with, it's ok to discuss it. Debate is good for growth as it makes you think. Keep in mind, debate =/= fight. It is not ok to behave badly in my space. Actions are fair game, people are not. And NO generalizations/stereotypes! Behave badly and you will be banned.

If you add me to your circle, please send me a message so I know who you are, and I might even add you to my circle!
