My screen name is derived from the bulletproof Stradavarius cello that Kara Milovy plays in the Living Daylights, not taken from a cheesy bodice ripper.
Like Vesper Lynd and West Berlin, my interests are divided - particularly when it comes to fandom. I've been obsessed with con artist and 60s spy shows for years, I've recently drifted into the "new" classic sci-fi arena and Dragon Age 2. Offline, I tend to juggle a variety of unrelated projects, including working for a health app startup and investigating complaints in long-term care settings.
When introducing me to the entirety of my high school before my senior speech, my then-advisor, a wise and adorably WASP-y lady, announced that I was “surprisingly kinky.” Maybe I’m just lazy, but I can’t think of a better introduction than that.
Basically, I'm being vague just to annoy you into reading my LJ.
Friends: I tend to friend people who share similar interests and/or have interesting things to say and interesting ways of saying it; it's my way of saying, "Hey, I think you're a really nifty person, and I'd love to learn more about you." I generally friend anyone who friends me, but if you do so then I'd appreciate it if you'd leave a comment so I know a little more about you. Thanks!
