FAQ Thing

FAQ-ish sort of stuff follows...

Generic Disclaimer: I do not pretend to be an expert on the subject of anything other than my own opinion. Any statements I make are the product of reading and my own half-baked thought-process unless otherwise noted, and if you notice one that you're 99% certain is complete horsefeathers, you are more than likely correct. You are cordially invited to bring any such statements to my attention. Politely.

Yes, yes, I am a political conservative, a Christian, and I have a hard time taking most things seriously: I don't normally discuss politics here because I come here for fun, not pointless, circular debate, but you never know when I'll take it into my head to post half-baked pondering about scripture, the text of a hymn, or something else related to religion and spirituality. Also, I may at some point make light of something that you think should be taken very seriously, because making light of things is pretty much what I do. I apologize in advance for any distress I may inadvertently cause as a result of these (admittedly heinous) defects of personality and taste. It probably doesn't help much, but for the record, I never intend to upset anyone.

If you posted something you particularly wanted me to see and I didn't seem to notice, leave a comment. I have a huge (huge!) friendslist. I miss stuff, especially stuff posted on weekends. If you wanted me to see something, or thought I would be amused/interested and I haven't commented about it, do please leave me a comment with a link, I'd hate to miss it.

And since you asked: My screen name is pronounced "cahl-kwess-ah". "Kal" is pronounced as in cauliflower, "quess" as in question, and "a" as in aha. And it has nothing to do with cheese, because it's a feeble attempt at Elvish, not Spanish. However, because no one else on this particular arm of the galaxy can see my screen name without thinking of "quesadilla", I have acquired the dubious title of "The Cheese Elf". I am more or less at peace with this.

Dramatis Personae

A lot of my posts involve my friends and family, so here's a quick cheat sheet of who's who.

mathphilebill (AKA Mr. Bill, Prince Alarming, or simply "the nerd") is my husband and twue wuv. (Mr. Bill's tag)

green_tea_lady (or just GT) is my sister and partner in crime, who now lives far away, necessitating many long-distance phone calls. (GT's tag)

holmeskillet is GT's husband. It is indicative of his awesomeness that I love him even though he is responsible for the sister-living-far-away thing.

thomas_a_kempis is my dad and resident expert on almost everything.

not_a_monk (AKA Ma Bookie) is my brother and the only person I know who is snarkier than I am.

zababby is the unholy spawn of not_a_monk and my favorite baby nephew.

koalasigns is my out-of-town gal pal, we've known each other practically since birth.

izhilzha is the person responsible for getting me hooked on most of my favorite TV shows. Any injuries incurred as a result of fannish material on this journal can be blamed directly on her. (Izh's tag)

kimberlycreates is the friend and former classmate responsible for getting me addicted to LJ. Any non-fannish injuries caused by this journal can be blamed directly on her.

People in my life that I haven't forced to get an LJ yet:

Soupy - one of my brothers-in-law, says amusing things

Ernie - one of my sisters-in-law, likewise a source of amusing things (Ern's tag)

Curly - the other sister-in-law, and the youngest of the clan. Collectively, Ernie and Curly are "the pixies."

IT Guy - my local IT ninja, another source of amusing (and frequently very geeky) conversation (IT Guy's tag)

Sam-I-Am - another co-worker, who has way too much in common with me. May or may not be a figment of my imagination. (Sam's tag)
