When you say you flew alone, do you mean as a passenger, or a pilot?

Name: Serene

Preferred gender pronoun: she/her, but I don't feel super-attached to it

Birthday: September. When I was in k-12 school, it was usually the third week of school, and since we moved a lot, and often between school years, I was unlikely to know anyone at my new school, so I usually had my birthday parties in June instead.

Name: Beth

Preferred gender pronoun: she

Birthday: March 13th. Not quite the Ides, not Pi Day, and no, I wasn't born on a Friday, but I am not triskaidekaphobic.

Where do you live and/or time zone: Minnesota, central daylight time - and soon very close to you, betsy!

What are you studying/What are you working as: e-learning/website guru/online training/etc for the Center for Victims of Torture. Not really studying anything formally right now, but learning all sorts of random stuff, like currently learning how to shoot & edit video. Yay small non-profit jobs!

What makes you happy/hobbies: Joe, making stuff (sewing, cooking, events, artsy stuff), giving things to people (see making stuff), travel when I can afford it.

An interesting fact about you: I think you already know the interesting bits about my being born in Kuwait and going to high school in India and yadda yadda. To go with your "flying" fact, I will share the somewhat morbid fact that I once flew in a small plane with a coffin right next to me in the aisle. (The coffin was occupied by my aunt's dead body.) It was... odd. Also, did you know that apparently if you're going to put a coffin on a plane, it has to have a steel bottom? How odd.

Are you in love/have a crush at the moment? I am happily in love and loved in return. I am also happily surrounded by many other attractive people, but I mostly just admire them silently.

Favorite place to be: On a beach.

A word to describe yourself: "over-committed" / "overcommitment-prone"


FANDOM

Favorite Fandom(s): I find this question confusing, but will answer: Science fiction, fantasy, etc.

OTP/OT3: Not my thing to spend brain cycles on, usually.

Celebrities you flail over: I don't really flail over celebrities so much. I'd be pretty excited to meet Anne McCaffrey, but she died, so that's unlikely. I guess I'd dig meeting any of the actors from the recent Dr. Who or Torchwood. I got minorly squee! over meeting Jeremy Messersmith at the last CONvergence, and was also excited about Jason Carter being there...

Favorite music: I am digging Dessa too. Also Florence & the Machine. I find I like Pink more than I thought I would. Dar Williams is a perennial favorite.



PLUS

One thing you like about LJ/DW: A good supplement to my memory, which sucks. Sucks, I say.

Two things you like about yourself: I think I'm generally good & giving to those around me, and I'm creative.

What House in Hogwarts are you in/would you be in? Maybe Hufflepuff. I dunno.
