Name:Lady Mondegreen

About me



I'm thirty and an INFP. I am a(n): philomath, open-source fan, amateur cook, Web addict, grammar nitpicker, linguistic toe-dipper, list-maker, roller-skater, ballroom dancer, lover of books and walks. My current fascinations are rollerskating, ballroom dance, and adult literacy advocacy.

Friends are welcome. Most of my entries are locked. If you'd like to add me, feel free. I'll most likely add you back—although if we don't have much in common, leaving me a comment would be nice. I occasionally go through and remove inactive accounts from my friends list. If you've been removed and you'd like to be added back, just let me know.
