Nickname/Preferred name: Boston works fine.

Occupation: Analyst at an environmental testing company

Age: 30

about your dog(s): Meg, the most perfect creature to walk the earth. 5 year old Mountain Cur.

Interests: My dog, my horse, agility, dressage, photography, obsessions with TV shows.

Favorite music: A mix. Country. Musical theater. Some adult alternative/soft rock/piano rock stuff. Definitely not the "black metal" that is playing in the lab all day.

Favorite book: Too many to pick one. Favorite as in "amazing book, changed my life, more notes and highlighter than a five year old text book": The Plague, Albert Camus. Favorite as in "wonderful story, can pick it up twice a year, read it in a long sitting, and still be affected": Where the Red Fern Grows. Current "these books are more fun than anything I've read in a long time" favorite: The Dresden Files, Jim Butcher.

Favorite quote: Too many to chose from. Since I just read it again, I'll go with a Dresden quote: Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face.

PICTURE OF YOU

Older, but I'm usually behind the camera. I only step in front for special occasions. This was the last time I ever got to visit the real Boston Banker, my true heart horse (sorry Tristan).

Nickname/Preferred name: I realize my username is a bit long, so you can call me whatever you like. Justa, Luck, Lucky, whatever.

Occupation: High-school student. I also work part-time at a holistic pet food store, which I love!

Age: 17

about your dog(s): No dogs at the moment. I can't have any where I'm living. I do, however, have a cat that I love dearly and two slightly annoying yet highly entertaining birds.

Interests: Volunteering with my animal rescue, reading, watching movies, hanging out with friends. You know. The usual. I used to swim and cross-stitch a lot, but I don't have much time anymore.

Favorite music: Top 40 and Country.

Favorite book: That changes fairly often. Last two I read that I really enjoyed were The Handmaid's Tale and Oryx and Crake, both by Margaret Atwood.

Favorite quote: "If you can't do something right, at least do something smart." -Jayne, Firefly.

This one's pretty good, too:

"Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill today because they pissed me off and also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today, as they may be connected to the ass that I may have to kiss tomorrow."

PICTURE OF YOU: Yeah. I don't really do pictures of me. If we ever end up being Facebook friends, you can see them on there.

Interests: my puppies, my amazing husband, video games (currently Dragon Age, Assassin's Creed 2, and Super Mario Bros on Wii. I'm also currently playing Mass Effect again so that when we get Mass Effect 2 my character will be a high level and it will be awesome.)

Favorite music: Uh, you know, like... Billy Joel. Jason Mraz. Some Dave Matthews. Etc. I list these as my faves but they honestly put me to sleep sometimes. I like to listen to new stuff too but I'm bad at remembering the names...

Favorite book: I don't have a favorite. I LOVE BOOKS. I love Christopher Moore. Ooh, Lamb: The Gospel according to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal is one of my favorites. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver is amazing. I'm currently engrossed in the Wheel of Time series and have been for a long time now. I'm on book 6 out of 11.

Favorite quote: I dunno... I'm bad at remembering quotes.

A goofy self-portrait I took the other day before re-painting my bathroom. That's the face I make when I haven't looked in the mirror all day and see my reflection.
