A quick introduction:

I am or have been a: writer, publisher, renter of virtual apartments for real money, injector of radioactive materials (for the forces of good, usually), sociologist, teacher, BBS sysop, SJW, polyam, and dedicated to punching up. I also have screwed up a lot, and try to learn from that crap.

Other mastodon account at, but I'm planning on mostly using this one.

Holy crap I really really enjoyed *Green Arrow and the Canaries*.


I love how there's such a wide variety of UK accents on these BBC quiz shows. Really drives home how accents get policed on media (including here in the US).
