Hello! Welcome, especially if you're here from [personal profile] st_aurafina's friending meme! It feels weird to write one of these under a name I've been using online for a decade!

I'm ishie, or Lisa. You can call me Al. I'm in my late thirties. I've been online since, uh, the early 90s? I am an old, in all the ways. I grew up and live in southwestern Ohio, where my day job is in marketing. The rest of the time is filled up with writing and reading original fic. Some of that reading is for a couple of really cool scifi mags, where I volunteer as a submissions editor/first reader. It's super illuminating!

Right now I'm obsessed with being politically active enough to make my electeds not vote for things that will hurt people, and Star Wars. My two media goals for the year are to watch 365 movies in 365 days, per the Doug Loves Movies podcast, and to read 60 books in 52 weeks. Bonus points for the reading challenge are earned by reading things by people who aren't white cis dudes. (One of the last books I read in 2016 was Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy, which I highly recommend.)

This post is rapidly running out of steam. How about a good old fashioned get-to-know-me monthly ask meme instead? Pick a day, ask a question! )
