Who am I?

My name is Katie, and I'm a twenty-two year old long term fangirl.

Being that I am an English major (BA from Texas State University, minor in Sociology), a bisexual, and a former GameStop employee, I actually don't exist.

Assuming I do exist, I live in Austin, Texas with [livejournal.com profile] irish_cocktail (Eryn), who I met through the LiveJournals. We get frequent visitors in the form of various internet personalities, mostly from the Texas Bandom Crew. We run around Texas a lot to see shows. Here is my list of bands I've seen. The longer list is what I saw last year alone.

As I mentioned, I work four hours a day as a nanny for an eleven year-old boy I call "Kiddo". I play the keyboard, but it's a trap. I have a bunch of fish, two pet rats (Dylan and Gizmo Jones), and a cocker spaniel puppy named Rufus at the Disco. I post pictures of him a lot.

Fandoms I Was/Am In: Sailor Moon, Gundam Wing, Vampire Chronicles, Savage Garden RPF, The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman (comics), X-Men (movies), Lord of the Rings (and RPS), Harry Potter, Supernatural (and RPS), and bandom.

Authors I Love: Oscar Wilde, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Kurt Vonnegut, John Green, Neil Gaiman, Mercedes Lackey, Joseph Conrad, Dorothy Dunnett, Tanya Huff, Christopher Rice

Movies I Love: The Dark Crystal, Mirrormask, Pan's Labyrinth, The Orphanage, Peter Pan (the recent live action), The Last Unicorn, Velvet Goldmine, Love Actually, Across the Universe, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, Shaun of the Dead, P.S. I Love You

Bands I Love: Savage Garden, Darren Hayes, Placebo, Rufus Wainwright, Cowboy Junkies, October Project, Barenaked Ladies, Scissor Sisters, The Postal Service, Aerosmith, ZZ Top, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, The Libertines, Ludo, My Chemical Romance, Cobra Starship, The Hush Sound, The Cab, A Fine Frenzy, Charlotte Sometimes, Conor Oberst, Semi-Precious Weapons

Heyyy, it's rain_dances, I changed my username and deleted all my 'friend of' list, so now I'm going into everyone's journals who I would LOVE to friend me back. So please do so, if you so desire. :)

Hey! I found you on the Nanniesrus community.. I kinda stopped updating my journal last year because most of my friends on here stopped posting/commenting.. But I want to start back up this year.. So I need to add some new friends!

Cool, I added you back. :)

I actually just got notice at my current nanny position, it'll be ending in February, but well... they told me yesterday, and already today I've done one phone interview and scheduled another.

You made a smart funny comment over on stephanometra's journal, and you say you're interested in David Bowie, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Johnny Depp, Neil Gaiman, Oscar Wilde, Peter Pan, Rocky, Savage Garden, Scissor Sisters, Shakespeare, and The Simpsons, and just generally seem cool and worth reading. I'm a bi hippie geek with a boyfriend here in Austin, a very close friend of stephanometra's, and fairly familiar with HP & Supernatural fandom through her, although I've never written any fanfic.

I just added you, found you via the White Collar com we're both in. I have to say I love the way you ask questions. We have a few fandoms in common (White Collar obviously, Buffy, Xmen, LotR just from whats listed). Your a Christopher Rice fan, and that makes me want to surrogate your children, and I don't even like kids much.

As for updating my journal, I try to update occasionally, but not daily. I'm incredibly boring I think, and a good chunk of the time I don't have much to say about things that comes across in print.

Nice meeting you anyway. :)

Expect interesting answers to your questions, probably not Anon'd cause I really don't give a rats what the internet thinks of me as a person lol.

Added back!

I love using my LJ for discussions because I actually get a lot of participation and get to see a lot of different perspectives just from one small sampling.
