“Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” ‘ Luke 12: 18-19
Bonjour! I am Mary Sue! Nice ta meetcha!
I live in North Portland again, after a three year detour in Southeast. I will often be identified by my pale skin peeking out from under a NaNoWriMo t-shirt. Right now, my life is consumed with Leverage, Warehouse 13, Eureka, Psych, Justified, and NCIS.
I have a BA in Social Science (specializations in Global Politics of the mid-20th Century and Public History, plus a minor specialization in Apocalyptic New Religious Movements) and a M.Ed. in Cross-Cultural Teaching. I’m getting certified in Databases and SQL and Oracle.
I’m currently working as a Buyer in a Big Ol’ Hospital. I shall let Joss Whedon explain my job to you:
Buffy: I’m going to be a buyer.
Merrick: Of what?
Buffy: I dunno. It’s just a job I heard of. Sounded pretty cool, you know? Buyer, buying, to buy… I like that.
I speak five languages, all badly. I play ukulele, badly.
I don’t have cable TV, because the money I would have spent on that goes to comics. Deadpool is my absolute favorite, followed closely by Jamie Reyes’ Blue Beetle and Molly from Runaways.
I often have my Pokewalker on me, but the Nintendo DS is sometimes at home. There is always a book in my purse, either science fiction, urban fantasy, or a religious text. Because I’m also a church nerd.
