Howdy, friends and strangers!

This is my intro post. I figured I'd better have one.

This journal is a mix of fannish stuff, ponderings, computer geekery, art and random cookery experiments. More personal posts are friends-locked, some with tighter filters than others.

Things you should probably know about me:
* Despite my handle being "Kerr Avonsen", I am a female.
* I live in Australia, unlike most of the Internet.
* I follow Jesus the Christ, but I am neither a Fundamentalist nor a Liberal.
* I am a fan of both Media and Book SF&F.
* I am a computer professional, and have been so since 1989.
* Thus, one can logically deduce that, unless I am a genius, I am over forty.
* I am not a genius.
* I have been on the internet since before the World Wide Web was invented.
* My Meyers-Briggs type is INTJ.
* I suffer from certain chronic illnesses, but those are usually discussed under friends-lock.

After you have friended/subscribed to me, I would appreciate it if you drop me a comment here, saying hello and what brought you here. No need to ask permission beforehand, but it would be nice to give me a note afterwards.

Friending you 'cos I noticed you commenting in R J Anderson's latest post, figured that anyone who takes their username from Blake's 7 obviously has good taste, and we seem to have a fair few interests and some friends in common. Hope that's okay!

I wandered in here from a link at elf's Sarumander roundup on Dreamwidth, and stayed to read all your Doctor Who episode reviews. I hope you don't mind if I friend you...!

I'm closest to Carlton (it's just down the No 1 Tram for us), but quite happy to hit any of the others.

There's a cool change due through tomorrow late afternoon - how do you feel about Morning Tea, at 11, your choice of location?

My email is reynardo (at) optusnet (dot) com (dot) au

Some comments on a mutual friend's page brought me here, and I think we have a lot of fandoms in common. I'm always looking for new people to meet to get properly immersed in lj, and also, fic. Oooooh.

Hey! I found you via the Snowflake Challenge. I love your Buffy/Who crossover 'Doesn't Look Like a Hell Dimension' and look forward to reading more of your work when I get more time... for now, alas, the house will not clean itself.

Anyway, I'm friending you, I hope that's okay.

I am looking to make friends in Harry Potter fandom so I added you.

I friended you because I was so impressed with your contributions to the Controversial Stance On.. thread at WIKtT. You said what many of us wanted to say, but you did it far more eloquently than we managed.

You presented your information is a voice that was firm and clear, and then you backed your points up with well-reasoned arguments. I learned a lot from reading what you wrote and by following the link you provided. You're definitely someone I want to keep on my radar.

Oh, and your posts on SnapeyLuvsHermy have given me plenty of food for thought, and your responses to my pleas have helped me move my own work forward.

Thanks for everything.

May I friend you? It looks as though we have similar interests, and what's not to like about someone who sees my Bella/Barty icon and thinks "Tenth Doctor and Bellatrix" crossover? ^_^

Hi! I followed you here from the sshg exchange bingo I think. Then I read your writerly thoughts and wondered if I could read more :o)

Friending! I've seen you about in friends journals and in the exchange and into SSHG.

I have quite a few Aussie HP friends. =)

Finally, computer geekery. I don't program. I'm a system analyst.

I am an EE since 1984.

I've friended you to be able to check back to your blog looking for great stories to read. Easier than trying to remember things any more.
Mainly a lurker from northeastern Nebraska, USA. I do have a couple of stories on FFNet under either azulkan2 or just azulkan...see what I mean about forgetting things lol.
That's basically it.

Just finished reading your comments are an oldie like me. Fell in love with computers back in the summer of 1969, but wasn't able to purchase one until sometime in the mid 70's to early 80's. I remember local BB's. Learned dos in self defense, lol. Wish I had had my sh*t together enough to go back to school then and get a degree in computer science. Oh well, such is life.

Hello. Just got the notice that you subscribed to me, so I decided to check out your account in reciprocation. We have some overlapping interests, crochet and bacon chief among them, so I would like to start following you for now. That might change --- I'm getting ready to go back to school for my masters and may well decide that there isn't enough time in the day to follow all the journals I'm following now --- but I will let you know so that it's not a puzzler (and I'll still probably drop in from time to time, if that's all right).

I added you as a friend because of your fics and looking to meet cool people in the fandom

*waves tentatively*

I mentioned over at my blog that I would welcome people who discuss the various Moffat fandoms as I get more involved in the fanfic parts of the Sherlock/DW fandoms, and your name came up. I have a long history as a Tolkien fanfic writer but am still definitely finding my feet in these newer obsessions. When I asked, your name came up and you definitely seem like an interesting fandom member.

I hope you don't mind that I've friended your journal. I don't expect reciprocation, though would welcome it of course. You're also welcome to poke around my own journal (most of my stuff is public) or look me up at AO3 where I write under the pen-name "Marta." In any event I look forward to getting to know you a little better, assuming you're interested in that.

Hi! I found you through your katspace netfic webpage while looking for old archived Doctor Who stories(specifically Jeri Massi's Third Doctor stories). It was your review that convinced me (with some help from the Wayback Machine) to read her awesome fics. So thank you, and have a good day!

Hey, I'm kinda new here myself. I am not sure how to add friends on this, but I came upon your profile and wondered if you wanted to chat or whatever.

Hi! I'm going to subscribe because A) it's rare to find people on Dreamwidth who share my faith and I enjoy reading about other people's faith experiences and B) you're funny and I like funny. ;) I'll grant access temporarily so you can decide if you want to subscribe, but there's absolutely no pressure. About every week, I'll go through my circle info and just remove access from people who aren't subscribed. :)
