Omnivorous reader of anything high, low, or middlebrow; equally happy at a literary tea or a demolition derby. Big fan of humorous things, especially irony or satire. Ex-journalist who used to write a lot about computers; a few years back I got a Master's in interdisciplinary & performance art, where the big money is. I've started collecting works by 19th & 20th century humorists. Honk if you read Robert Benchley! I'm involved in several different kinds of historical study, from recreation of the English Regency period to learning Latin to running a historical science fair to doing various forms of historical dance (as recreated or as living tradition). But I love the modern world too, new music, new science, new people. When I roam around LiveJournal I keep finding new interests, real interests that I just forgot to add to my already lengthy roster. The thing is, life is never boring. There's too much out there to enjoy.
