I am a gay woman from Pittsburgh. I love the Pittsburgh Penguins more than anything.
I am also a huuuuge geek. I love anything Star Trek (especially TNG & Voy), Harry Potter, Doctor Who, BtVS, Xena, Rizzoli & Isles, Lost Girl and Supernatural. Also, my newest obsession/fandom is Once Upon a Time.(Swan/Queen of course, cuz I couldn't be gayer if I tried.)

[I had a somewhat traumatic incident happen at work today, and I hid in the bathroom and cried a little. Then I thought, “how would B’Elanna Torres handle this?” That’s the only way I was able to leave that bathroom and carry on.]

when you hit your thumb with an eight-pound hammer it’s nice to be able to blaspheme. It takes a very special and strong-minded kind of atheist to jump up and down with their hand clasped under their other armpit and shout, “Oh, random fluctuations-in-the-space-time-contiuum!” or “Aaargh, primitive-and-outmoded-concept on a crutch!” By Terry Pratchett in Men at Arms, a Discworld book.
