    Smile longtime lurker, first time posting

    Just wanted to say "hi". I lurked for quite a while before I registered and then lurked some more.

    Some stuff about me: I'm 25, a full-time writer, and stay at home mom. Before that I was an acquisitions librarian in a museum (total and proud of it). I had a baby just 5 weeks ago, and I've been married to my childhood sweetheart for 5 years. I'm a fan of the Cure, Tori Amos, Patricia Arquette, Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Roth, Johnny Depp, and John Cusack. Like most everyone here, I can't stand Jessica Simpson, Nicole Kidman, and the Hiltons.

    That's a cool job you had!! Did you major in anthropology? Did you study archivology?
    K, too many questions.
    Anyhoo, welcome to our board, hope you have lots of fun here.

    p.s. I like the cure, too. woohoo

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!

    Mary Jane ~ my baby's name is Gwendolyn. We call her Gwen for short. Her middle name is Lenore (from Poe's "The Raven"--told you I'm a nerd).

    Barbara ~ I mostly write for young adults. A lot of it is supernatural/mystery stuff, but I also write a lot of coming-of-age stories.

    Moomies ~ I majored in English and minored in criminology. I just sort of fell into my library position after I graduated. There was an opening at the museum, so I took it. It was fun figuring out how to spend $40K on books each year--it's surprisingly fast and easy to do. My desk was in the special collections archives, so I learned a lot about archiving and preservation.

    Oh that's cool. I majored in anthropology so there might be a career for me in the field you were in but haven't studied archivology and curation cuz these were grad school level courses at my uni. and I don't wanna go back to school anymore (i've just graduated)...hehe.
