I'm an office wage slave, fangirl, book nerd, and homebody. Most of my posts are (were? are) related to these things. This is because I have a terrible memory and like to be able to remind myself what was happening on any given day. Whether or not it makes for interesting reading is immaterial (or, you know, a matter of personal taste, which I deeply respect. :D)

I have a large vocabulary, yet consistently fail to express myself in any meaningful way. And I was likely daydreaming when they had the lesson on social interaction. I try, but I just don't get it.

I am an MMO addict and have tried overly many in the last few years. The only ones I still sometimes feel an urge to play are FFXIV, WoW, SWTOR, Guild Wars 2, and Rift. Currently I'm not maintaining a subscription to anything, but the ones with decent free to play I still check into from time to time.
At the moment am utterly obsessed with all things Dragon Age and I sometimes play Minecraft or Awesomenauts with friends.
I'm also bookgroper on Steam and Tumblr, and booksandcats on Flight Rising.
