Or madam. Or whatever.
...after reading H2G2 for several months, and after a certain amount of prodding from my boyfriend who is rather... prolific , on here, I finally signed up as a Researcher.
However, wanting to stick my nose in more than just being picky about people's entries in the Conversations and Peer Review, I soon became a sub-editor (see 'Volunteer Badges' over to the right, !!)
I'm not exactly prolific in the solo entry department, as subbing and RL takes up much of my time, but I'll keep plugging away and, who knows, maybe one day I'll attain the coveted 25 entries badge!
- JANET: The UK's Education and Research Network. My first entry (which has taken me a mere year to complete...).
- Redbush Tea. Only took me nine months - getting better...
A few other entries also have my name on them (apart from the ones I've subbed, of course):
- Traditional Children's Songs - UK. This was Emmily's entry which I contributed to in Peer Review.
- The Great Fire of London, UK, which was a Talking Point on the Front Page. I made some rather vague comments about it and ended up in the Researchers List!
- The Real Cost of Improving Your Home, to which I added a couple of my personal DIY disaster stories.
- Alternative Holidays, to which I added a memory of my holiday in New Zealand.
- Mythical Creatures, to which I added a bit about the Manticore.
I won the Christmas poetry competition (Christmas Prose and Poetry) 2004 with 'A Cat's Christmas'.

Well, I live in the UK, in the Oxfordshire town of Abingdon with my boyfriend and my . Shame there isn't a smiley for a very fat, one-eyed black cat and a very dippy short-sighted black and white cat, but there you go.
I mostly fill my time by performing in a drama group and an amateur operatic group. Recent shows include Half a Sixpence and Twelfth Night, which I've moaned about / discussed / enthused over (delete as appropriate) in my journal. I also study Bach flower remedies, and attempt to clicker train my cats and beat my boyfriend at board games (not at the same time...).
I try to stay fit by going to the gym and doing Tai Chi, but the amount of chocolate I eat probably negates any good work I do.
That'll do for the moment, I reckon.
One more thing...
