Who is Crystal?
hmmm...how to begin. I am Female, was born in 1971, a Technical Writer, White, Middle
Class, Blond, Blue Eyed, Near Sighted, Well Read, Far Traveled... Labels,
I'm not sure how much they or I can objectively say.
Well, lets try again. I have a B.A. in English/French Literature with
Honors from UC Santa Cruz (Go Banana Slugs!), a Technical Writing Certificate
from S.F. State, Small Feet, a great many books, curiosity...
I make obscure jokes and sometimes they are funny.
I often become obsessively interested in various subjects: history,
books, whatever. Always have. Always will.
I like character driven stories. Romances, Science Fiction, History,
Fantasy, Mystery, Myths, Fairytales, Biographies. I guess I'm a genre reader.
My favorite t.v. show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The writing
is crisp and sharp. Actions have consequences and characters actually evolve
over the course of the show.
I love to dance. Ballroom, modern, whatever. Favorite dance songs: Congress
of Vienna Waltz (because its pretty) and Danse Macabre (because
it's a strip the gears, suck the marrow out of the bones of life waltz/polka/tango
I like to sew and I hate cooking. Go figure.
Oh, and I have way too much energy.
