hippyspirit: (Jack & Daniel)
I have discovered the [community profile] snowflake_challenge which started at the beginning of the year (I'm only 13 days late - that's not too bad) and I thought it would be a good way to kickstart my newest blogging venture. Plus, who doesn't love talking about the things they love? I'm also hoping it will be a good way to get to know some folk around here since I'm the new kid in school!

Day 1 - In your own space, talk about your Happy Place—the things that give you joy, calms you or keeps you sane. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

In this weather, my happy place is where you find me right now. I'm stretched out on my couch, there's a roaring fire and I'm piled under blankets and cushions. One of my cats is in front of the fire and the other is helpfully keeping my toes warm.

When I venture out of the house for reasons other that work, I make a beeline for a window seat at a coffee shop. A big mug of hot chocolate, a slab of cake, and I'm either reading or watching the world go by. I also adore a used bookstore.

If the weather is nicer, you will find me at the beach, toes dug into the sand, basking in the sun. I also have an affinity for lakes and mountains and spend as much time as I can in Wales, the Lake District or Scotland

Hi, I’m Spirit and welcome to my brand spanking new dreamwidth – there’s not much to see just yet, I’m still putting the finishing touches on, lick of paint, freshening up the flowerbeds, that kind of thing but I figured an introduction would only be polite.

Spirit is my name.
And yes, really Spirit is actually my name. It says so on my birth certificate.
Spirit Aydan Anderson.
My parents were hippies and I was born in the 70s, what else can I say?

I was born in the 70s. 1975 to be precise which makes me… old enough to know better but young enough not to care.
Or numerically, I’m 43.
I’m a Virgo, but won’t bore you just yet with the nitty-gritty details.

The most important thing, as you can probably ascertain from the title of the site, is that I am a fangirl. Completely and utterly, and also I have no shame in being so. It makes me happy and I’m not hurting anyone. Everyone has their hobbies and mine is being particularly enthusiastic about certain science-fiction shows.
Especially Stargate SG1. Really don’t get me started or you’ll never shut up. I get a little bit like an excited Daniel Jackson, actually, with the bouncing and the hands flailing and the talking faster and faster as the words trip and stumble over themselves as I try to get them out and people turn to me and say “Spirit, breathe!”
That also happened the first time I met Michael Shanks. And Amanda Tapping. And as for Richard Dean Anderson there really was NO breathing occuring whatsoever. But enough of that.

That’s the basics of me, at least as far as an initial introduction goes. I’m sure you’ll get to know me a bit better as I keep updating this thing. So welcome aboard, it’s nice to meet you
