Inspired by all the trans-ethnic demiromantic demisexual cat-otherkin on Tumblr, I have decided to attempt to define myself, for my own amusement and the possible benefit of friends and passing strangers.

1. I am Elderly.

1.1. Memo to self: invest in drape-y clothes, shapeless dresses, possibly shawls.

2. I have been Mummified. This renders my life both very busy and, as far as non-Mummies are concerned, very boring. I apologize for this, but I like it this way.

2.1. I am therefore Exhausted. If I have fallen, chances are I do not want to get up. Please just cover me with a light blanket and leave me to sleep it off.

2.2. I am also thereby Well-Preserved, which lends a certain preserved-in-amber quality to my interests. I have probably not heard of your latest fandom, but if it's a book series, or a television series I can someday obtain on DVD, I would love it if you told me about all about the thing, in the faint hope I will find the time to read/buy/download it. Some days you Online People feel like my only contact with the outside world, and I appreciate you more than you know.

2.3. I am also, therefore, busy. I eventually reply to letters and emails, but there's no point in pretending it happens promptly. I try my best to keep up with the life events of friends, but sometimes I admit I can't find time to do more than fling a comment at you or mail you something--and the something is more likely to be "a short note and a small gift" than "a long chatty letter."

2.4. I understand that after the first few years, one adapts to Mummification and starts having free time again. I live in hope and expectation.

3. I am Prone to Melancholia.

4. I am Married. Mostly this is as I anticipated it would be, but there a are few unexpected side effects, such as a strong urge to matchmake and a faint urge to throw dinner parties. Luckily I have little time or energy to interfere with people's lives to any large degree; usually I find that lying down with a cold cloth over my forehead causes these urges to pass off. Still, I feel it's only fair to warn people.

5. I have, in my old age, turned into a Giant Prude. I would like everyone to go and put some clothes on prior to public events. I don't, however, go around saying so, because I try not to be a Giant Jerk.

So I'm an Elderly, Exhausted, Married, Mummified, Melancholy Prude. I sense this description is lacking something, but I'm not sure what.

Point the first: I was slightly scatterbrained to begin with (lists are the only thing holding me together, most days), and now I have two small children, so THE BRAIN, SHE DOES NOT FUNCTION WELL.

For example, just now I was on a friending meme, looking at people's posts (as one does), and started subscribing to some of the interesting-sounding people (as one shouldn't, unless one is going to be organized enough to remember to COMMENT in reply. Oops.).

And I suddenly realized I had subscribed to a bunch of people, not commented to any of them, and...yeah, hence this post.

So hi there. Sorry about that, but you all sounded too interesting NOT to read. Don't feel obliged to subscribe back! I mean, I will be delighted if you do, but there's no obligation.

I'm older than dirt, possessed of a spouse and the aforementioned offspring, addicted to books, slightly too busy for fandom right now but hoping that will change over this next year. Sort of religious, but still not sure WHAT religion--something paganish or heathenish seems like the best fit, but I also cheerfully go to various churches with my family once in a blue moon.

I mostly post either about day to day stuff (I try not to post about the children a lot, though), or about books. Or I rant about politics sometimes. Canadian politics, those would be.
