Hey friends! It's 2012, I'm new to Dreamwidth and most of my friends list here are not people who followed me over from livejournal. I know, this shocks the hell outta me too. So I thought I would do a post where I talk about myself and get it all out of the way.

I'm a writer, first and foremost. Outside the boundaries of my head, I work in accounting and receivables for a property management company.

I live in Philly, share a house with Murry (my mother). Saying I live with Murry is much cooler than saying I live with my mom. Since we both share financial responsibility I prefer to look at it like roommates.



I'm thirty-three.

Weaknesses include cigarettes, gel pens, messenger bags, lip gloss, tertiary characters, panties (mine, not someone else's), Woody Allen films, and coffee.

I'm in the midst of getting my entire mouth reconstructed to better control my periodontal disease. So there will be entries about multiple trips to the dentist.

I obsess about the characters in my head. When I've got crazy new ideas, this is the first place you'll see them.

I do my absolute best not to dwell on the negative but I keep it real. Sometimes shit sucks but I prefer to squeeze as many positives as I can out of proverbial kicks in the nuts. I spent a lot of years depressed and in therapy. Now comes the good shit man.

I'm single. I'm always single. Attempts to rectify this have been met with crushing defeats. I find both men and women attractive for completely different reasons. Thus far I've dated men. No luck. I often cant kick up the nerve to talk to pretty girls.

Speaking of....initially I'm quite shy. I cant believe how I've jumped into this with both feet. I guess after years on LJ, journaling seems like old hat. But its always taken a while for me to get to know and trust people.

I quote movies and stand-up comedy with alarming speed and accuracy. I also know the words to like 923,952,074 songs. Dont test me on that one...its just an estimated number. But second to writing, music is my all-time love. Books too. I'm lagging behind these days but I love love love books.


I guess that's a good introduction to me. Just reading my journal will help getting to know me better cuz this is my no holds barred place. I'm honest about thoughts and feelings on everything from the mundane to the super serious. I usually post once a day, everyday, its a true blue journal for me. Sometimes I post more but not like 5 times a day...that's what Twitter is for. So I hope we all get to know each other better in these coming months and Dreamwidth can become a new home for me.
