I have to admit, when the Harry Potter books first came out, I didn't want to read them. But thanks to my book obsessed mother who could nag the paint off the walls, I was invited into Harry's wonderful world and hope I can add a little of my own weirdness too.
I am a weirdo and proud of it (I have a tee shirt proclaiming so), but this was not something my teachers loved about me. When I was a kid, I was tested for everything from A.D.D. to Autism to Asphergers to Bipolar Disorder to half a dozen other things I can't bother myself to remember. But the creative spirit cannot be crushed with pills and now they just call me ecsentric.

* I HATE High School Musical with a passion! Typical Disney dollar guaging. I'm just happy I have no children so I don't have to tolerate the constrant noise drilling into my skull.
* I just started a LiveJournal community, OliveOilMusings, where I post my stories, drawings, and videos. I also include helpful links, types to writing great stories, and where some of my own favorite stories and artists can be found.
* I also have a DeviantArt account where I post most of my drawings you can see on the Beta Boards (and a fair number than you can't).
* I'm a clinically documented sleepwalker, and I'm oddly focused when I do. I write (some assage I even use in stories), post on the boards (really), print pages off the internet, and cook food. So far, I haven't driven a car in my sleep, though.
