hi all,

i found this fledgling community by snooping in dysgr8mystake's user info, after encountering her over in anti_feminism.

ABOUT MY ARRIVAL: thinking they couldn't have children, my parents adopted the ones they wanted. then, a few years later, mom gets pregnant - OOPS! last summer, i went to visit my grandfather. after informing me that my deceased grandmother had been "a real chippy" (read: "whore"), he said,

"so, you know you were an accident, right?"
"yup," said i. "and a pretty damned lucky one, too."

so, that takes care of the "unexpected" bit. now, for the fuck-up bit: i'm an over-achiever. this means that i think i'm a colossal fuck-up, though others tend to disagree. i think the jury's still out.

3 random interests: trains, procrastination, and hating moulin rouge.

...looking forward to all manner of random conversation over here.

You have no idea how happy your intro just made me. ^_^ I'm trying to get this community known about, and to see someone just get interested seeing it in my info makes me quite pleased, thank you.

I can't believe I didn't come up with procrastination all by myself. Damn!

And yeah, the overacheiver thing is something I definitely think my sister could relate to, in her life. She's practically driven herself into the ground trying to be perfect for the family more than once.

ah, yes... procrastination... what would my life be without it? i'd sure as hell spend a lot less time on LJ...

oh, and thanks for adding "hating moulin rouge" to our collective interests. i realize that some people like that movie, so i appreciate your support for my loathing. i think it's the worst (and, the most horribly overrated) thing that's ever come out of hollywood.

also, thanks for making this community. imagine, a whole bunch of people who weren't supposed to exist, coming together and sharing our awesomeness. as i typed that, i just realized there's a rather sizeable danger that this community will become a magnet for pro-lifers. lots of this: "imagine if your mother had aborted you? you'd all be dead. and BOY would you be PISSED."

*fingers crossed that we avoid that*

If that happens we should point out to them that yes, our mothers chose to have us. That they were not forced to have us due to lack of other options. I think that makes the choice more significant.

yeah, i totally agree. yet, i've never been able to convince a pro-lifer of that one...

alas, a gal can dream.
