Feel free to spread this around so we can all get to know each other. If there is a question you don't want to or don't know how to answer, just tell me something else instead.
Preferred gender pronoun: If I'd grown up in the era of genderqueer, I think that would fit, but I've spent so many decades trying to expand the boundaries of what "feminine" is that I guess I'm female. She and her are fine.
Skipping the birthday and where do you live questions: In my profile to those with close access.
