The Basics


What does your username mean:There is a tradition in theatre that, every night when the theatre is closed for the day, a light is left shining on the stage, at the apron, at the very point where stage threatens to become audience. The stories say this "Ghost Light" is set out so the theatre will never be dark, meaning here both non-producing and absent of light. Other stories say the ghost light is put out, here meaning "placed", not "extinguished" (I'm reading Lemony Snicket, sorry) so all of the theatre's ghosts may gather around it and perform their favorite monologues, scenes and soliloquies for each other. In reality, the ghost light is put out so no idiots or other innocent souls walk off the edge of the stage in the dark. The first task on the list when the theatre opens is to put the ghost light away, and the last task is to put it out on stage for the ghosts. That is my metaphor for stage managing: first in and last out.

Age: 48 today!

Location Alaska

What do you do for work? I work for an Events Planning Company, Help out at a local theatre company I call Ye Olde Youth Theatre, house manage and work at Dramaworld (the box office at the Performing Arts Center)

Theatre! I've been involved with everything from improv troupes to the civic orchestra to youth theatre to burlesque.



Please describe yourself in at least 3 sentencesStage manager, roller derby referee, zombie aficionado and Diet Coke addict.

I am married, no pets and no kids and no plans to change any of that, but I enjoy having 'journal friends who post about their kids, pets and lives regardless of how they differ from mine.

I love horror and cooking competitions. My greatest fear is that someone will combine the genres and I'll be powerless to leave the house.

The Basics


What does your username mean: it's a name I made up years ago, I use it for every website I can

Age: 45

Location Kentucky, USA

What do you do for work? I'm a database flunky for local government

What do you do for play? not much lately, just veg on the couch or go out to dinner

Please describe yourself in at least 3 sentences I'm an unapologetic fat kid, forever on the quest to give up soda. I'm bipolar and actually happy about it. Not happy that I'm bipolar but happy that there's a name for what's wrong with my brain and a medication to help out. I like to read, craft, cook, and hang out with my precious husband, Sparks. I love sloths, they are my spirit animal.



A few of your favorite things

Books/Authors: as a kid I loved the Trixie Belden mysteries. I'm rereading those now from the viewpoint of the crabby adult and they're making me roll my eyes.
Movies: one of my absolute favorites is Six-String Samurai.
TV Shows: lately I'm all about bingeing things. I don't like to wait a whole week for my next 30 minutes of show! That said, I've loved The Handmaid's Tale. It's been worth the wait every week.
Sports: I am not really interested in sports. If I had to pick one to watch, it would be hockey.
Podcasts: I've never listened to a podcast.


What kinds of things do you like to post about? the little things going on in my life, my anxieties, lists of reasons to be happy, and pictures of sloths


What do you look for in 'journal friends? I don't like people who have constant drama. I do like people who post fairly regularly. I love people who make things and inspire me to do the same. You don't have to comment very often, I rarely comment myself.

The Basics


What does your username mean:
Short for Daphne P. Winnebago, a pseudonym I made up in college decades ago to publish absurd poetry under.

Age: 44, the age at which Oprah says women finally “hit it”.

Location: Philadelphia, USA

What do you do for work?
I work for a fine art museum.

What do you do for play?
Write, read, knit, draw, cavort with friends, birdwatch with my husband, travel.

Please describe yourself in at least 3 sentences

As far as lj-relevant backstory that helps you wade into my lj, I’m a middle-aged married liberal creative type, with a high activity drive and a healthy level of neurosis. Assertive enough to be called bossy/bitchy on a regular basis, I do generally get my way, mostly because I’m used to making it. I like art and creative expression in many forms, from high art to home crafts to theater and music, storytelling and stand-up...and I have all sorts of opinions on it all that I’m happy to share.


A few of your favorite things
My chihuahua, books (all things about: reading, publishing, writing), beautiful fabrics (either for crafting or wearing), carnivorous plants.

Books/Authors: Barbara Kingsolver, Ann Patchett, John Boyne
Movies: I don’t watch many movies these days
TV Shows: “Detectorists”, “Great British Baking Show”, “Lovesick”, “Episodes”,
Yeah there’s definitely a british theme, and gentleness.

Sports: I watched the World Cup, which shows I’m not sports-antagonistic, but generally I don’t follow any sports.

Podcasts: not many...haven’t caught this train yet.


What kinds of things do you like to post about?
Thoughts about complications with real-life stuff. I write to sort out my life, so everything that causes me anxiety or other extreme emotions gets handled here. Also frivolous things like fashion and lipstick colors. I’m also doing a 365 questions meme, so my journal covers a lot of topics superficially right now.


What do you look for in 'journal friends?
Vulnerability.
I like people who, like me, write about their real lives, and with a measure of candor, analysis and assessment. I don’t care what you did or ate or who you spoke to as a mere list, but I love when there’s an aspect of any of those that someone is willing to analyze closely enough to MAKE me care about those things.

The Basics


What does your username mean: It's a pun on the word "folklore." I am incapable of not mucking around with folk tales when I tell them and I tell some original stories that are in the folkloric style.

Age: just shy of 60

Location: northern Virginia

What do you do for work? satellite geek. In practical terms, I go to meetings and write emails.

What do you do for play? storytelling, various crafts (knitting, crocheting, nalbinding, bookbinding), puzzles, theatre-going, travel, genealogy

Please describe yourself in at least 3 sentences: I am constantly busy and, hence, constantly sleep deprived. I love quirkiness, e.g. I am the sort of person who will drive an hour out of my way to see the world's largest towel. I am torn between trying to improve the world and trying to distract myself from how miserable much of it is.


A few of your favorite things

Books/Authors: Alexander McCall Smith's Number One Ladies Detective Agency series and his Scotland Street series, the travel books of Dervla Murphy and Tim Severin. I like mysteries and biographies and firmly believe Alice in Wonderland is the best book ever written about pretty much everything.

Movies: My all-time favorite movie is Local Hero. I tend to like romantic comedies, baseball movies, and vampire movies.

TV Shows: I was fairly addicted to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The last show I binge-watched was Better Off Ted.

Sports: I am an ardent Red Sox fan and firmly believe that the New York Yankees are the Source of All Evil in the Universe. Since I live in the DC area, I follow the Nats to some extent, but I'm not as emotionally wrapped up in them.

Podcasts: I'm not really into podcasts.


What kinds of things do you like to post about? Whatever I've been doing. So lots of theatre reviews, short travelogues, and such. Periodic political ranting. I'm doing the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks genealogy project. I've been reviewing Graze snack boxes but am planning to wind that down.


What do you look for in 'journal friends? People who are passionate about what they do.

The Basics

What does your username mean?

It's my birthstone and I think 'witch' is self explanatory! It used to be bone_machine18 (after a Pixie's song) but everyone thought I was a prostitute or general whore, so I changed it.

Age:

I was born in '85, please don't make me do math...

Location:

Ontario, Canada

What do you do for work?

Freelance writer and NO, I don't stay in my pyjamas all day ;)

What do you do for play?

I like to travel and camp and just be outside as much as possible. I love horror in all forms and am a sucker for any animal. I obviously love to read and write, I'm kind of a health nut but not really... I keep myself in shape but I don't think I'm annoying about it. I don't go to the gym; outside is my gym.

Please describe yourself in at least 3 sentences:

Introverted weirdo writer. Happily married, no kids, three pets (two cats and a dog). Proud Pagan and yes, we are practicing!

A few of your favourite things:

Books/authors: Stephen King, Robert McCammon, Bentley Little

Movies: Beetlejuice, Field of Dreams, Shaun of the Dead, Natural Born Killers, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs

TV shows: X-Files, Grey's Anatomy, OITNB, Riverdale

Sports: None

Podcasts: None

What kinds of things do you like to post about?

I think like most people my journal is just my day-to-day life. Sometimes it's exciting, most times it's not. I have serious memory problems so I just try to record each day, regardless of the excitement factor.

What do you look for in 'journal friends?

Looking for real connections. It seems many people around here these days seem to be all about the numbers, so they add you but you can tell from their comments that they're not really reading you, just mimicking above comments. Or worse yet they never comment and then act butthurt when you un-add them. So, maybe a better way to phrase this is what I'm NOT looking for--and that is drama. And I'm not nuts--I don't expect to hear from anyone every single day, but if I don't hear from someone for a month then I'm probably going to let them go.

Still interested? Yeah, I didn't think so. lol.
;)

I like to watch Attack on Titan and Pixar movies.
