Sticky Post :: About This Space & Friending Policy

(Thanks to mrsr58 for the great banner!)

"A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men."

About this Space

This is my primary fandom home.   If you've wandered here somehow via real-life channels, hi there!   In this space I let my fandom geek out.   I also express my love of photography via fandom by taking and sharing with fandom photographs at conventions
(via a Creative Commons License).     I also sometimes share bits and pieces of my real life here.  Sometimes friends-locked.  Sometimes not.  But always with an eye towards sharing within a fandom space.  The emphasis in open posts is usually on fun.   I gave up hiding fandom a few years ago.  I don't advertise, but yes, this is also me.   Roald Dahl, author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory one of my favorite childhood books and movies, had his character Willy Wonka state that "A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest man."   This is the tag line that describes this space.    If you want serious, if you want my professional side, I have other spaces for that.  :)

My posts are a mix of fandom and RL. Many, but not all, RL posts are friends locked.  Most fandom posts are unlocked.

Well, hi there! It's been awhile...

Hi all! I was going to joke that it's been xxx days since my last post on LJ. Then I went and looked and OMIGOSH, the last time I posted on LJ was on March 11th. Holy cow. That may be a record for me. :/

We recently returned from our 22 day Europe trip, including attending JIB in Rome. Our trip included 6 days in Ireland, 3 days in Rome for JIB, 2 days in the beachside resort of Rimini on the Adriatic Sea, and an organized tour including Vencie, Pisa, Assisi, Florence, and back to Rome.

I've a Flickr collection of albums for JIB, if anyone is interested.

And I'm posting write ups of segments of the overall trip on my photography blog.  So far I've three posts. Hope to do about one every day or so. And hopefully before I forget details!  At least one of the posts will be about the comparison of JIB to Creation cons.

    - First day in Ireland
    - Day 2 in Ireland - Cliffs of Moher and Galway

Hope all is well in LJ land.  I did finally catch up on S10, so I'm now ready for S11.
