It's been past time to update the user info, so here goes:

I'm a nerd and a geek (though not a dork) and proud of it. Nerds, as adults at least, have always had at least a grudging level of respect, but geeks have not. Slowly, geeks are becoming more and more widely recognized as a legitimate class. If I "lobby" for anything, I lobby for the recognition of the rights of geeks. Nongeeks need not be alarmed, however. You have rights, too.

At present, I work as a court reporter, but I dream/plan to go back to graduate school, get a PhD, and make my career in academia, where a lit nerd belongs. I've tried this "real-world" making-money stuff, and it doesn't satisfy my soul. There is a huge difference between work I do only for pay and work I do in which I have a genuine interest. Besides, I'd be a really cute professor.

The sometimes strange subject heading are in Quenya, Tolkien's High Elvish language.

I'm a myers-briggs INFP.
