[Facts about Pfeffermuse:]
This journal was originally intended to be an extension of my limited fannish activities. Instead, as you can see below, it's mutated to also accommodate my personal and political views.

So, who am I?

A lefty liberal who has grown sick and disheartened watching a once-great nation slide into pseudo-dictatorship and theocracy. A card-carrying member of the ACLU. A political activist who has marched against these wars from the beginning, and who believes the only way the United States will reclaim some of its status in the world is to investigate, indict and imprison the war criminals in the past two administrations and their enablers in both the legislative and judicial branches. A person who believes the wall of separation between church and state is necessary and healthy for the functioning of both. A believer that global warming -- and its deniers -- are the greatest threats to the survival of the human race. A straight, multi-ethnic female who despises racism and discrimination in all its forms: ability, class, ethnicity, race, religious, sexual . . . .

As far as my fannish pursuits, you can read those below. Information about journal codes, icons, and other miscellanea may be found here.

October2011dotorg Rally in Washington DC I pledge that if any U.S. troops, contractors, or mercenaries remain in Afghanistan
on Thursday, October 6, 2011, as that occupation goes into its 11th year, I will
commit to being in Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC, with others on that day or
the days immediately following, for as long as I can, with the intention of making it
our Tahrir Square, Cairo, our Madison, Wisconsin, where we will non-violently resist
the corporate machine by occupying Freedom Plaza to demand that America's resources
be invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation.
We can do this together. We will be the beginning.

[Fandom Section]

Writing has opened so many windows and doors for me. Through it, all possibilities exist. The freedom that the 'net has given me in pursuing my hobby has been invaluable -- the research tools, the language, the culture, the art -- it's all at my fingertips.

As far as my preferred choice for writing: that would have to be the action/adventure genre. Time period doesn't matter. Whether it's World War I, World War II, the present or the far future, there's always a fandom to satisfy my needs.

In terms of other interests, old-time radio programmes, specifically those broadcast in the 1930s and early 1940s. The world was not nearly as naive as our parents and grandparents have led us to believe.

While you could call me a fan, having stepped back from much of the insanity excesses of fandom, I'm not sure that word still applies. There's plenty of enjoyment to be found in reminiscing about programmes whose halcyon days were long before my own arrival on this plane of existence. Stimulating, intriguing and interesting conversations will always remain fun, and I'm grateful for the many people I've met along the way. The beat may be eclectic, but it's always nice to find folks who enjoy the rhythm.

Outside of everyone saying, "you've got to have a Live Journal", I've never really known what to do with this space. LJ covers such a wide range of topics and interests that I often feel overwhelmed here, which explains why this account is not very active.

Empress of Wands
On the throne at the crown of the world, watching as the fool on the hill spins around and around.
Divinatory Meanings: A card of majestic power and strength. Wisdom shines within her eyes; wisdom tempered with knowledge and some sadness. Material wealth and fame, and the courage to accumulate both -- and more -- are easily within her grasp.
Reversed: New beginnings. Change. Rebirth. Unmasking.
