"She was a machine. I tell you a machine. Smoke rose from her keyboard, the scent was a mixture of blood and sweat. She frightened me."



"You're about as mundane as a fever dream." - vmurther

"I am a definite danger to myself. Though, rarely to others." - Me

"Eyes sparkling with mischief, hair flipping and curling around jawline or cheekbone, soft fabrics in lush blues, blacks, and purples, anticipating smile. Ready laugh in alto bells. Purr in voice. Unexpected steel. This is my mental snapshot of you." - deirdremoon

Ben: Ever see that bumper sticker, "Well-behaved women rarely make history"?
Me: Yep.
Ben: You, my friend, are not a well-behaved woman.
Me: That is one of the nicest things you've ever said to me.

Hello! If you add me as a friend, please drop me a line and let me know. I'm curious like that. You can tell me a little bit about you and how you found my LJ. I'd appreciate it. Also, please note that I do not automatically 'Friend' everyone who 'Friends' me. Though, I do check in on their journals from time to time.
