starlady: Three weeks for Dreamwidth (3 weeks)
Q&A Days 1-8

Q&A Days 9-14

15. What 5 things are you obsessed with currently?
Narnia, definitely. As for the rest…'obsession' is probably too strong a word, but I'm very excited to watch a lot of anime and Doctor Who over the summer. And to read a lot of manga. And as always, to try (and fail) to catch up on my piles of 'to-read' books.

16. What are you glad you did but haven't really had a chance to post about?
Um…I post about 90% of my life, I'd say; almost everything I consider worth mentioning makes it way here eventually. I'm behind on several music reviews, including a Javanese shadow puppet performance and a gamelan concert that I saw. They were both awesome.

17. How many people on your reading list have you met IRL?
Hmm. *eyeballs reading list* Probably somewhere between one-third to one-half. One of the things I did when I joined DW was to subscribe widely, which has netted me a lot of awesome people in various places on my reading list, and I've had a corresponding number of chances to meet them offline too, particularly since I moved to California/started attending more cons. And I've met more awesome DW people through those awesome DW people, even better.

18. What don't you talk about here, either because it's too personal or because you don't have the energy?
I don't tend to talk about my family very often; my sister is on DW/LJ too, and a lot of that is her story to tell, not mine. I also, bizarrely, haven't talked about my parrot much. I might try to put together a picspam of him when I'm back in Jersey this week, he likes having his picture taken. I also try not to talk about the minutiae of my grad school life so as not to bore all of us, myself included.

19. What are you most interested in reading?
*laughs* You know, that's actually a good question. I read almost exclusively sff, YA, and non-fiction these days, and even there, my tastes are decidedly out of the mainstream. I'm looking for interesting takes on old stories, believable characters, well-chosen words and thrilling turns of phrase, stories that I haven't heard before, stories that represent real reflections of the broad range of human experience and not just the same rehashing of things the kyriarchy believes. Not coincidentally, the books I read tend to be by authors who aren't white men.

20. Any questions from the audience?
Speak now or forever hold your peace (until next time)!

21. What's your favourite thing about Dreamwidth?
The people, first and foremost. ♥
