Name: Kirsten/K`shandra/Koosh
Age: 46
Location: Silicon Valley
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: If there's a kshandra on the site, it's 95%+ likely to be me.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
Stolen from my abortive attempt at LJ Idol Season 9: Life long San Francisco Bay Area resident, married since 1991 to [personal profile] gridlore, also a Bay Area native. I'm morbidly obese and middle aged. I trend toward the introverted side of ambiversion, and self identify as a recovering depressive (directly analogous, IMO&E, to being a recovering alcoholic). My passions are science fiction conventions and Burning Man, both attending and volunteering; my current Default World boss is someone I work with in the desert. I have too many stuffed animals and not enough bookshelves, too many half-finished craft projects and not enough hours in the day to finish them.
Top 5 Fandoms:
I'm old enough that I remember the days before that word became quite so balkanized - but I also realize that it was a time when the word referred to F&SF to the exclusion of most all else, so I'm coming around on that point. If I had to give a list, it would probably be (in no particular order) 80's music, classic Doctor Who (I'll watch New!Who, but it's never captured me in quite the same way), [livejournal.com profile] seanan_mcguire's Toby Daye novels, Kushiel's Legacy, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I'm an erstwhile pundit fan and still moderate Texts from the Anchor Desk (officially the co-mod, but the blog founder hasn't been on Tumblr in a while).
I mostly post about:
Day-in-the-life stuff, with occasional descents into the land of memes.
My last three posts were about:
One about seeing The Nutcracker with my mother and two about the death of my grandfather.
How often do you post? How about commenting?
I'm better about the latter than the former, though truth be told I'm not very good at either. ;-) I took part in NaBloPomo last month in the hopes that it would get me posting on a regular basis again, and it's helped a little bit, but I'm still nowhere near as prolific as I was in the early days of my journal.
A GIF to describe how your day has been so far:

There's a (not-quite) full tank of gas in the truck, some extra groceries in the fridge, and enough money in the PayPal account that I can get cash back off a small purchase tomorrow and get the checking account out of the red before I get dinged for their "Extended Overdraft Fee" or whatever the hell they called it. Once that's done, I should still have enough left that I can finally put in the 2014 Upgrade disk I got from Quicken and start following my money more closely again, and then renew my membership at the therapy pool after the 15th (when it becomes $30 rather than $50).

I was able to go visit [livejournal.com profile] pentaclemoon last night for her birthday and stay up far too late chatting (okay, snarking) with her, [livejournal.com profile] cruz531, [tumblr.com profile] myrkrida, [livejournal.com profile] thesylvan, and [twitter.com profile] KobaltBleu, and spent the drive there and back working my way through the WTNV archive (I've just finished "A Story About You"). I paid for my late night by spending the day dead for tax purposes; I finally got out of bed for good about an hour ago, and am now making clean-out-the-fridge sourdough bread pizzas for breakfast/lunch/dinner/whathaveyou.

I haven't seen anything yet about this year's Cupid's Postbox, but one of last year's maintainers is on my f'list, so if/when it comes up, I'm reasonably certain I'll hear about it. [livejournal.com profile] 021407 is also open for business.

Ivy's wondering where the SMOTUs hang out.

(Tatty, Ivy's one of my freaky friends, so y'all ought to get along especially well.)
