Retired. Nearing the dreaded 60th birthday. Leo, with Libra rising. Single. Definitely in the crone stage. Goth before it was cool. Sadly, I remember Abba when they weren't traveling holograms. Also the Bay City Rollers. Proudly Celtic (with a hard C and not the soft Boston accent). Purveyor of marginally good fanfiction, a stellar biscotti, and advice.
