Don't tell me not to fly, I've simply got to...

I've gotta fly once, I gotta try once.

7 September 1983
As you can probably tell, this journal is locked to friends only. Therefore, if you want in, you're going to have to leave a message in one of the few open posts in order to get friended back, otherwise I'm not likely to notice.

I am 20-something, have a developing career and great friends; I'm independent, and am very happily single. I spend half of my entries here giggling like a fangirl and the other half mocking the idiots I deal with on a daily basis, with a few ranty "WHY AM I SURROUNDED BY MORONS?" tirades and a few introspective soliloquies in between.

Drama is not welcome, unless it is in the form of awesome fic, either hockey or whatever other fandom I'm currently loving. Otherwise, keep it to yourself. I'm opinionated and biased--and I can deal with differing opinions. Healthy debate is fun!

I write slash. If you don't know what it is, you probably wouldn't like it.

I'm a work in progress, but I'm loving every step of the journey. If you want to come along for the ride, join!

Survey Yoinked from maniaco and kpavuk

Mild-Mannered Alter Ego? Nat...yeah, I've got nothing witty here.

What do you hate (hockey category)? Flyers, Lightning, Red Wings; commentators, homer fans, anyone that was on the 2004 Tampa Cup winning team, Derian Hatcher, Kris Draper, half of my own team most of the time, people who constantly yell "SHOOT" at games, being unable to be a fan in my own way (player loyalty first, team loyalty second. Get over it.) without drama, people constantly piling on Sidney Crosby, the double standards that exist between various players, the shootout, quite a lot of the fans.

What do you hate (non-hockey category)? People who can't handle driving through a freaking tunnel. The fact that my best friend is 400+ miles away. Drama queens. Insurance companies, humidity, waking up early. Clients who expect miracles.

Most famous person you have ever met (hockey): Sidney Crosby, Jordan Staal, Andrew Ference (Whatever, he counts, he's the resident hippie.)

Most famous person you have ever met (non-hockey): Um...Franco Harris?
