[personal profile] sinnamongirl
This LJ is now mostly locked; however, I do welcome new readers/friends, especially people who comment and interact in a nice respectful way :) Be welcome! If I forgot to notify you that I added your LJ, I do apologize. Also I tend to drop people if they haven't posted for awhile; if that happened and you're back lemme know! The public entries will likely be [livejournal.com profile] therealljidol entries, and I encourage you to check out that community.

People of note, whom I often refer to you without reference/context at the time:
Granny: My maternal grandmother.
Grandma: My paternal grandmother.
David: My brother, who is almost my exact opposite and the person I respect most in this world, even though we don't agree on a lot of stuff.
Mom/Dad: Parental units, obviously.
The Pox: [livejournal.com profile] bexfabulous, all-around hoodlum.
J.Bola: The Pox's boyfriend.
My tattoo artist: [livejournal.com profile] lastporter- more than sort of awesome.
Junior: An almost, but not quite, nemesis.
The Bearded One: A friend, former crush, and older brother to J.Bola.
Snarls: My socially-challenged cat.
The Gentleman Caller, also 'GC' and 'Ben': [livejournal.com profile] leroy_brown242, the abusive partner in a past relationship.
Max Powers: [livejournal.com profile] glowing_fish, friend and ex-boyfriend.

Succinct summary:
Age/Sign: 35, Aquarius

How long have you had your LJ: Um... October 2002? Not sure, but the Pox got me on it.

What does your username mean: I used to dye my hair with henna with cinnamon mixed in... also I like Neil Young. But Cinnamongirl was already taken. Also I then switched to paprika, as it gives a more vibrant red. Any coy 'sinful' connotation was unintended.

What is your favorite thing about LJ: Interaction with people I'd never normally meet.

What is your motivation on Live Journal? I work from home, so it's hard for me to remain connected/interactive IRL (I'm an introvert with depression problems), and also I've been journaling since the 2nd grade, so it was a natural progression to do it online.

Have you ever met anyone on your F List in real life? A couple of them, yes! Though my original small Flist were people I knew IRL.

Do you have a paid subscription? I believe I do.

Where do you live: Southern Oregon; I have a mailing address and a few places to stay but no real fixed home for myself.

Do you have an accent? To quote a guy I went on a date with many years ago, "you're the only person I've met who doesn't have an accent. You sound like the people on TV."

Do you have pets: An old and grumpy cat, a brand-new kitten, and also live with 2 dogs of Granny's and 1 cat of mom's (whom I fostered as a kitten even though he's lived with her for 6 years)

Did you go to school: Under protest I went to a traditional 4-year college. Then trade school. Then a whimsical fling with art classes. Then a less-whimsical fling with graduate school, which I dropped out of after a little over a year.

What do you do: Yearn to do other stuff, mostly...

Do you have more drama, at home or at work: At home. Where I also work.

Who do you often write about: Family, friends... the usual.

Religious studies sounds so interesting, the perspectives and insight you must have. How did you come to choose it?
I've never studied anthropology at all, my only contact with it was with this Mexican man who was irate about what was in western textbooks about his culture. Luckily since I'd never read any, I'd never been 'poisoned' with their ideas (and also had no idea what he was talking about) At the time he was working with the Mexican government in making a booklet about their history of Mexico written by Mexicans for tourists. I wonder if they finished it yet and how its interpretation of history might differ.

I had wanted to be an archeologist as a kid, with an interest either in native American or near Eastern archeology, and that interest took me to the religious studies part of it.

It'd be rad if you could find that pamphlet again, just for personal reference :) Did you travel through Mexico alone? That would be pretty dangerous these days, it seems.

I am kind of offended that I don't get a special name.

From: [identity profile] sinnamongirl.livejournal.com
Oh gosh! No! Do you have any preference for a special name, or since I sometimes call you by your real name would you mind that?

I need to redo the introduction anyway, and also still can't remember how to clean up my tag list- I found a way awhile ago to delete the ones I don't want to use anymore but can't remember how :(

Thank you! I'm weirdly nervous, is the next step just waiting for the writing prompts? I should probably go chat with people too. I like your intro by the way, your cat's an excellent poet!

Horseback riding gets you neck-snapping thighs. ;)

It's true! And I do sometimes volunteer at a horse rescue, but unfortunately most of the horses aren't able to be ridden, but the few that are I should get on more. For the thighs!

I desperately want to travel to Norway as well. It's a compulsion and I have no idea how it started. Someday I'll get there.

Date: 2014-03-11 12:10 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sinnamongirl.livejournal.com
How long have you had this compulsion? Mine started awhile ago; my mom's dad's family is Norwegian so it came from doing genealogy and also not really meeting any of them - her dad died when she was 13, and I only vaguely remember her uncles from when I was a small child. So I wanted to do that whole thing where I go and look up parish records and track down family members who are so distant we're probably not really related anymore, then it turns out the digitalarkivet probably has all the genealogy info I need, so now it's an urge to go and see the place. Someday!

I'm the same way about my LJ although I haven't stated anywhere my policies - but I have the same approach.

I liked your 'cast of characters' so to speak. It made me even more interested in what you might write about!

Looking forward to reading more!

Iceland is pretty amazing - I've been twice, both times in winter, and am hoping to go back in the summer!

So lucky! I would swoon to go; I'm guessing I'll likely have to go in winter due to cheaper airfares, but someday. Someday it'll happen.

I am currently working a shitty job and going to graduate school in order to get a less shitty job, and trying to remind myself it wouldn't be right to toss it all and go live in a van in the woods, at least not until I'm out of debt or close to it.

Yeah, I know what that's like. I suspect many of us do.

Good luck in the game! Good luck, too, with those goals. I particularly liked the one about having thighs so muscular you could break someone's neck. What are you doing to achieve that?

Date: 2014-03-16 12:30 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] sinnamongirl.livejournal.com
Thank you, and good luck yourself! So far I'm working out in a not very organized fashion; I've also been very sick the last few months so haven't made it to the gym. But lots of thigh presses, thigh squeezes, that sort of thing - plus as someone else mentioned, horseback riding is great for thighs. I have sporadic access to horses and would like to spend more time with them anyway, so that's another motive for me to do some riding.

Nice to meet you! I do like having that chart, though I often end up re-explaining who people are anyway, or referring to them by their real names or otherwise forgetting to follow my own little list.
