It's a girl, my lord, in a flatbed Ford

such a fine sight to see.

Twenty-something attempting writer with a degree in Asian History; also, total geek. I like gender and clothing and World War Two, Heian Japan and the Communist Revolution in China, and I wish I could have taken more classes on the Celts and the Vikings.
I may have watched too many samurai films when I was young and impressionable. I blame my parents. Now I watch too much Jdrama, though this is maybe balanced by watching much less anime than I used to. Hey, it's not my fault nothing good is coming out right now. I also watch Doctor Who (Nine will always be my Doctor,) am stuck halfway through season 3 of Battlestar Galactica (omg boring) and gave up on Heroes very quickly. Farscape is lots of fun. I have Google spreadsheet of all the Jdramas I have watched/have given up on/will watch/want to watch right here.
I read quite a bit - check out my books tag if you're actually interested. I mostly read science fiction and fantasy, but every so often I go on a Chekhov binge, or some such.
I tend to lurk around the edges of fandoms. I don't talk much, but I do take notes.
I write, cook, garden, and sew. I also cosplay and do the odd bit of historical costuming.
My room is always a mess, usually because it's filled with half-done projects, and because I adhere to the Mustrum Ridcully school of paper organization: all flat surfaces are filing surfaces, including the floor.
My taste in music is eclectic, to say the least. I keep on trying to summarize it, and giving up. Basically I will listen to anything once, though I mostly detest modern pop. Nothing will ever displace Dire Straits as my favorite band ever, though my favorite standalone albums might be the Total Balalaika Show by the Leningrad Cowboys and the Alexandrov Red Army Ensemble. "No Longer There" by The Cat Empire is currently the song that cheers me up no matter what. This doesn't make sense, since it's a melancholy song.
I firmly believe that silliness is good.
I'm married to a young man named Jake. I kind of talk about him a lot. This is probably because I rather like him.
I have a slight propensity for dramatic understatement. It's a genetic thing.

Journal title is an amalgamation of lyrics from "Take It Easy" by the Eagles.
