what this is

I tried to do a meta post, but it disappeared.  Here's another try.

I've done posts that are my versions of meta posts, but they were weeks or months or years ago.

This started out as a gardening journal.  At some point I began posting about the m/m romances I was reading.  I write posts about GLBTQ topics here and there, and wrote about soap operas at a time when I was watching a lot of them.  I still post about what I'm reading in general, my day, my secret love child (not actually my child), and other TV shows I'm watching.  I post about things I see in blogs and various other places online.

Added: This has also turned into something of a sleep journal, as I seem to post a lot about my disrupted sleep patterns.  Well, this has always been a self-indulgent LJ.  I can't even say that I'll ever go back and make a list or spreadsheet or whatever of that.  I'm not one to do spreadsheets.

I've been reading straight romances since my teens.  I fell into reading gay romance with Scott&Scott's Romentic books around 2007 or so, then got "if you liked that, you may like this" recommendations for m/m romance.  I never stopped reading straight romance.  I read romance with bi protagonists, and once in a while read lesbian romances, although they can be heavily political.  But my reading tastes as far as romances go are pretty broad.

I use initials for some people I journal about.  S., no last name initial, is my "secret love child."  S. gets the "friends" tag.

I was a history major.  I read historical mysteries and historical romances now, though I'll read non-fiction, too.  Although I didn't study it formally, my knowledge of zoology is not bad.  Or at least it's good enough that I'll think about how wolves' claws don't work like cats' claws do when I read werewolf stories.  I read a *lot* of paranormal romances, and werewolves are trendy.

I live in southeastern Pennsylvania and get to northern Delaware and to Baltimore every so often.  Once in a while I go to New Jersey.  I usually tag those posts "travel."

I don't know what happened to the "This journal may contain adult concepts.  You must be fourteen or older to view it." warning.  Large parts of the journal are G-rated, at least the gardening parts, but I do talk about adult subjects as well.  I may have to take it to an eighteen-and-older warning if that's the only option left besides open to everyone.

Added April 2013: I finally have a picture of a Neyron rose.  (Rosa 'Paul Neyron')
