I don't get emailed comments, so if you for some reason want a discussion continued, just poke me in email.

I live in the Boston area (well, technically, in one of Boston's various sub-cities), with lots of plants, and very few animals. (Comparative to how it used to be.) At the moment, it's just a lot of guppies.

RIP Bryton.

Oh, and also, I live with Calluna. (My partner, I mean.)

I'm a writer for a local institution. I'd enjoy it, were it not for the communications with my coworkers.

Am all kinds of interesting, though rarely all at once.

On LJ and Friends lists, and stuff like that-- First of all, it's not a friends list, it's a reading list. Second of all, my LJ is only occasionally the kind of place where I make Deep and Meaningful comments. This is because, for one thing, I don't have time, and for another, if I had to be Deep and Meaningful I'd get writer's block even more often than I do already, and never say anything at all, as opposed to only occasionally saying anything.

If I write something you particularly like and you feel the need to 'friend' me for any particular reason, feel free to do it -- no need to ask. Similarly, I generally just friend people, though I do try and pay attention to notes in profiles asking for specific actions. If you object to just being flisted out of the blue, please, tell me. (And you most certainly don't have to reciprocate, though it's often nice.)

I use reading filters a lot, so to be honest there's no guarantee I'm necessarily reading everyone on my flist on any given day. (And God knows I rarely read all of my communities.) I basically don't post friends-locked stuff, and honestly am rarely posting at all, anymore.

I have had to turn off anonymous comments, unfortunately, because I got a flood of spam in some random language.

On my LJ handle-- The long explanation can be found here. The short explanation is that it's a combination of Julian (from Julian of Norwich, 12th century Christian mystic) and Starsinger (a floofy name I once used). I'd use Julian, but it's taken, by a guy who hasn't used it in YEARS, not that I'm bitter.

As for who I actually am? Dunno. Calluna has a theory, though. "You are and you take pleasure in being someone continually engaged in a process of change and self-transformation, for whom becoming is a far more interesting and valuable state than either being or doing."

If you find this an relevant and/or interesting concept, then you and I probably want to talk.
