For some context on me, since I assume you only clicked my profile to find that out, nice to meet you. I'm a 30-something California native. I currently live in North Hollywood with (here comes the trite part) two of my favourite people in the world, my husband Eric and our* daughter, Holly Jane (d'aww), who are also tied for the title of biggest pain in the ass I've ever met. (If it came down to a tie-breaker, Eric would win on the basis that Holly is too young to know better.)
Other than that, I feel thoroughly uninteresting. I prefer Neil Gaiman to Terry Pratchett, Tolkien to Lovecraft, The Beatles to The Rolling Stones, and Ke$ha to Lady GaGa. But only just.
As for my LiveJournal name, the word "zeerust" was created in the book The Meaning of Liff, and is also the name of a South African town. It refers to, to quote directly from the source, "the particular kind of datedness which afflicts things that were originally designed to look futuristic."
*If you were interested/curious, Holly is biologically my child and Eric's niece, and the greatest gift that my sister-in-law Kathy could have ever given us. If you want to know more, I'm always happy to discuss it: it's just my profile page probably isn't the best place to go into detail.
