I've made a few new friends recently (go Sidekicks!), so I thought it might be a good idea, as I've seen a few others do, to have a kind of "introduction" post. I figure even for folks who I've known for awhile, there might be some new info under here, too. And of course I want to know more about you, too!
Occupation: I work in a library, though my dream one day is to make a living as a screenwriter. I'd be happy teaching screenwriting at the university level, too.
Alma Maters: Undergrad at USC in film production; grad at UT in screenwriting.
Fun Fact: I ate graham crackers and milk for breakfast this morning.
Favorite Movie: Young Frankenstein
Favorite Band: Gogol Bordello
Favorite Classical Composer: Chopin
Best Flavor of Ice Cream: Cookies and Cream (this is not just a preference, but an empirical fact)
First Ship: True story - my first two real ships were simultaneous. Scrooge McDuck and Goldie from Duck Tales, and Link and Zelda from The Legend of Zelda animated series. I would have like actual conniptions in kindergarten over these cartoons.
Other Ships: Mulder/Scully, Buffy/Spike, Crusher/Picard, Roslin/Adama, Olivia/Peter, John/Delenn
Shows I Will Yell At You To Watch If You Haven't Already: Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Deadwood
Cool Story Bro: The most embarrassed I've ever been in my life was when I was about seven years old. We were at this mall that had a fountain with "hot-air balloons" which ran on wires from the fountain up to the ceiling. There were wide steps that led down to the fountain for people to sit and chill on. I was running down these steps...for something, IDK...and basically couldn't stop in time. I ran right into the water. When I turned around, it was like this huge amphitheater filled with people, all staring at me, all laughing.
I started crying and my parents took me home.
Pets: Two dogs - Spencer, a wheaten terrier, and Princess, a dachshund. Three cats - Mr. Phoenix, an awesome ginger, Sasha, a sort of dumb and cross-eyed gray-and-white, and Dexter, the sweetest tabby in the world.
Siblings: I have two sisters and a brother. My sisters and I really get along and do a lot of stuff together. You may occasionally see my sister h_s_doodles reply here, but usually only in GIF form.
I'm kind of tired of thinking of stuff, so I'll call it here. I'm always open to questions, and if you're new and you didn't recently do one of these things yourself, say hi in the comments! (Hi!)
