    Default So... um...

    Well, it's probably about time for one of these. Not much to say really - most of y'all have probably realised I'm known as AMDG on INTPc, I've spent some time there being largely ignored but blithely rambling on anyway, so I figured I might as well come and do it here as well.

    I know sometimes I do make long posts, if this offends anyone then please feel free to skip them and don't feel obliged to respond (he shouts into the ether); if not, then party on!

    For anyone who doesn't already know, I'm of French origin but have been living in the UK for a long time; I'm a single parent of two daughters (one of whom has Asperger's); I'm a female-to-male transsexual, having transitioned six years ago (roughly); I'm an Anglican Franciscan Tertiary, and a 'proto-friar' (will one day take holy orders and become a friar), and as such voluntarily celibate these last four years and for the rest of my life. Until recently I worked as a freelance translator and researcher, but I just sold my half of the business to my luscious ENTJ business partner, since as a single parent of a disabled child, in the UK I'm entitled to welfare payments that mean I don't have to work, and I thought I'd take a break and focus more on my family and the non-money-making sides of life. I've a VERY chequered past, shall we say, but as we say in France, je ne regrette rien!

    Well... what else is there...? I dunno. There you have it

    You can probably afford to ramble on more than you seem to think.

    I'm of French origin ... (will one day take holy orders and become a friar)

    Cool! I'm so glad you have that opportunity, many people do not, so enjoy it.

    Meanwhile... an "official" welcome to one of my best friends here.

    Thanks Jen! Yeah we've had the French Fryer/Friar jokes here in abundance, yet they never seem to cease... haha! I actually still laugh at them though
