The pic to the left there, that web page should be youcaring.com/roys (See P.S. at the end below.)

I'm a bit of an oddball even as far as geeks and nerds go. It works in my favour sometimes. Even so, I find geeks & nerds accept me, especially my husband, Dave. This event is how we met, indirectly.

I like comedy, music, dancing, costuming (but not to the lengths some people go, I just throw stuff together mostly), being a hippie (natural food, products, toys), and kids (pregnancy, natural birth, attachment parenting, etc.)

Linguistically but not mathematically intelligent, I cut my teeth on a Commodore VIC 20 at the age of 5 or 6, and created a Robin Shou (Liu Kang, Mortal Kombat movies) fan page in 1995... on a 2400 baud modem. I generally know my way around computers, and, learning UNIX (yep, at least former UNIX chick here), did tier 2 tech support for Sun Microsystems at one time, for a couple of years. Now I'm on level one at NTT Data.

Yet I don't read fiction, play games often, or watch much TV or shows (though I am mostly caught up on Rick & Morty, and I know what's going on in GoT). I tend to geek out over real life health and domestic science, and child development/attachment parenting.

I have an early childhood education diploma and I hosted the Parachute Games and the Crazy Fort Competition in 2012. Hope to recertify and get back into ECE one day.

Hope to see you at events and parades during the year! :)

P.S. Dave and I have been experiencing male factor infertility since 2013. We have a crowdfunding page to help afford IVF. Address is - youcaring.com/roys
