Facebook meme: 25 random things

  1. I have 47 chromosomes.
  2. I write poetry.

  4. I was a Roman Catholic liturgy planner and organist for seven years.
  5. I am a Witchcraft ritual planner when the fit strikes me.
  6. I go to gothic fusion belly dancing workshops.
  7. I used to be a Catholic lay evangelist.

  13. My attention to detail has been described as something that causes conflicts with others who pay less attention to detail.
  14. I write dark erotica under various pseudonyms.
  15. Instead of pretending that either BDSM or Magick can be made “safe”, I realize that both are on the edge and embrace the dance in both.

  25. Most of this stuff can be found on my various websites.
