Patron Saint of Pessimism

Once upon a time I wanted to be a…1 I grew up, went to school, finished school, but…2 In university, I changed majors once, and…3 Found a job working at a…4 Twelve years later, I’m still there, although…5 Back in school, and there’s no…6 It’s been about nearly as long that I’ve been married, to…7 There’s two boys in the family if you don’t count the spouse, and…8 And that’s about it!

Right now:

1 dancer
2 didn’t stick to my dancing lessons much past age 10
3 settled on biochemistry with a couple of other science minors
4 fancy schmancy lab with lots of cool flashing lights
5 the flashing lights have been upgraded to a touchscreen readout
6 end in sight
7 someone who bogarts the remote control
8 when I say “boys”, I’m talking about the dogs

Disclaimer: Factoids may change at a moment’s notice and may not reflect the current condition.

So, really, I’m an analytical chemist by day and a writer-in-progress by night. On weekends I’m an unfortunate Master’s student. Somewhere in there, the dogs make room for themselves (persistent buggers), while the spouse takes over the bed.


Feel free to friend, but please comment or I won’t notice. I may not reciprocate but that has more to do with lack of time to read everyone’s journals than anything else.

Posts that contain writing snippets are friends-locked to a group. If you want to opt-in to the writing filter, please comment and drop me a line. I write in a broad spectrum of genres from science fiction to fantasy, but I have thus far managed to leave literary and poetry to my angsty adolescence. Snippets are far and few and rare.
