Journal of a North American Celtic Bobtail

Laura Gallagher
Goodness, this was overdue for a good edit.

I'm a mother and a spouse, a geek and a fan. I used to say I was a fiber artist, but that's really on hiatus. I am a serious World of Warcraft addict, and am having a great time with it. I have four kids. The eldest is an autistic teenager living with his dad in California. The three at home range from 4 to 9 years old. I'm married to my darling selenite, and my honeybear fordprfct, as we're polyamorous.

For fellow WoW addicts, we play primarily Alliance and primarily on the Earthen Ring server.

I read constantly, especially science fiction, fantasy, good mysteries, Heyer, oh, and whatever else catches my fancy. I'm a LASFS member, Fan, an inactive SCAdian. I've identified as pagan in the past, and still respect that path and have found a lot of good from it for my life, however at this time I have decided to go back to the church I was raised in to seek spirituality and other people trying to do good with their lives, and am now attending an ELCA Lutheran church.

I like to sing, especially filk, and just sing in general with my kids a lot. I come from a very musical family, in which I was the least musical. I'd like to learn more, I'd like to get voice training someday. I was getting harp lessons, and loving them and doing well, but that ended when my daughter was born, although I hope to get back to it someday.

I don't do politics. I'm centrist, I tend to see both sides, and I don't like arguing, debates, and confrontations. selenite does, under his political blog at libertarianhawk - but that's separate from me.

ObBujold quotes:

"It's not a job for the squeamish. I don't know why they encourage maidens to be squeamish, there's no place in women's work for someone afraid to get her hands dirty."

"Quite frank and outspoken, that one, when you get her going. The Mother's work does that to some women."

ObB5 quotes:

When others do a foolish thing, you should tell them it is a foolish thing. They can still continue to do it, but at least the truth is where it needs to be.

We are star stuff. We are the universe made manifest trying to figure itself out.
