This message is going to be kept at the top of my journal as a quick introductory message in case anyone casually browses over to this journal and is wondering what makes the writer tick.

Firstly... I read quite a lot of web comics, and have been having a bit of a hunt around for live journals or RSS feeds which look likely to give notice of updates to the comics I'm keeping track of. So, if you write a web comic and find this journal has added you as a friend or joined your community, that's why. If you don't want weird people from obscure foreign countries reading your journal or community, please let me know and I will cease and desist from doing so forthwith.

The nature of this journal is mainly for communication with friends. About two thirds of the posts are public, and tend to be reviews of the popular culture I enjoy: web comics, science fiction TV, rock music (with a particular interest in `eighties post-punk and "indie" music, especially that recorded in New Zealand). I have more obscure interests, as well, which I discuss rather less often: cartography, werewolves, philately and "odd stuff" in general. I tend to keep most of my older archived posts, and anything dealing with work or personal matters, under "friends lock"; if you wish to read them, please comment here.

Everything here is just my opinion, and is offered free of charge and is worth precisely what is paid for it. There are no insights into the fundamental nature of the universe contained herein.

Any reader is welcome to:
(1) Ask me anything you like about one of my user icons.
(2) Ask me anything you like about one of my interests.
(3) Ask me any question you want to ask, and I will give it the answer it deserves and post it as a reply to the question.

Pleased to meet you. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Here via the NaNo website, where I can be found as wanderingstar. On LJ, fiveredsnakes is my journal specifically for original fiction. It would be nice to have another NZer to talk with during the crazy month of November, if you're keen.

Great to meet you... I may not actually get around to doing nanowrimo this year (lack of plot is proving a major stumbling block at the moment, and lack of time to do it could also cause issues) though, and I might also disappear for days or even weeks on end (I have a very bad internet connection).
