Coupla things

There's this meme that's going around. There's also the list of Books I Read In 2009.

I will do them BOTH AT ONCE. Because that is how I roll.

There's also a bit of SPN meta I keep meaning to post and haven't, and a BSG ficlet I keep meaning to post and haven't, but those will be separate.

THE MEME: Ask Me Anything! Taken from all over, wording slightly adjusted.

Basically, if there is anything you are curious to know about me because you are new around here/are old around here but feel like you should already have known it/have never gotten around to asking despite the fact that you know multitudinous other details of my life like what I eat for breakfast every morning, today is a day to ask it. (It does not have to be RL stuff necessarily! Fannish questions are fun too.)

I will not be offended by anything you ask but I fully retain the right to not answer questions, because sometimes I do like being a woman of mystery (and also, some things are none of your business even if I love you). Alternately, I may screen answers if for whatever reason I do not feel comfortable sharing them with the-internet-at-large.
