I have an MSc in Plant Biology which is kind of a molecular genetics degree in disguise. My BSc is in Honours Molecular Genetics, because I'm pretentious like that. I have another blog named Genetics Made Complicated where I talk about that sort of thing.
This is my more personal journal, so I'll talk about my life, my hobbies (tabletop and live action roleplaying, mostly), my wife (king_of_light), my cat and whatever else comes to mind.
I lurk in fandom. I'm a fan of femslash and while I used to be addicted to the Whedonverses (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly, mostly), I have recently been sucked into Glee fandom. If I ever write fanfic again, I'll probably create a fic journal.
It's kind of silly, but the term "friend" more or less obligates a disclaimer in case someone takes it personally. I friend to keep track of interesting people/fic. Don't feel like you need to friend me back if you don't want to, nor should you feel obligated to keep me friended if you're doing a purge or something.
