01. FIRST NAME
Ginger. I have legally changed my last name three times (marriage, divorce, marriage), my first name once, and tweaked my middle name around a bit too. We do not discuss my original first name, so don't ask. Thanks. :)

02. AGE
I turned 35 in December 2015.

03. LOCATION
I live in Indianapolis in my house with my fiancé, his kittens, my sister, her boyfriend, his cat, and my dogs.

04. OCCUPATION
I am a Certified Professional Coder through the American Academy of Professional Coders, which means I have letters after my name. I am a full-time grad student. I am a coding team lead.

05. PARTNER?
He's this guy, you know? We've known each other for over ten years, informally-but-seriously (is that even a thing?) dated for a few months, and made it official in late February 2014 after our first Real Date (at the Venetian in Las Vegas). He proposed on our second anniversary over dinner, and we expect to return to Vegas to tie the knot in late 2017.

06. KIDS?
I am childfree -- of the sane variety, not the intarwebs crazy sort -- and have been all my life. But I have several parent friends on my LJ who would, I hope, vouch for my lack of crazy in this regard.

07. BROTHERS/SISTERS
My brother is 2 years younger than me, married to a sweet lady, and lives in the mid-Michigan area along with their three kids. My sister is four years younger than me. I don't see them often, but we get along much better now that we're adults. Well, my brother and I do. My sister and I get along a little better, but not much.

08. PETS



Both my girls :)





Angua, at 7 years old





Alannah, at 7 months old

09. LIST THE 3-5 BIGGEST THINGS GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE
If I read this as "things that take up most of my time and energy...
a. I am in grad school full-time. I also work full-time.
b. I also love to read - especially historical non-fiction and auto/biographies, alternative history, and epic fantasy/SF series.
c. Traveling and spending time with friends.
d. Gaming - mostly Pathfinder. I'm running two games and playing in ... three more?

10. PARENTS
My parents were married in 1975. My mother is a retired medical coder/biller (she was thrilled when she found out I was sticking with medical coding and finance) from a small family practice in Grand Ledge, and my father has been half-owner of a small office furniture and supply store in Lansing since 1988. They live just south of Lansing.

11. WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR CLOSEST FRIENDS?
Wally is the best-beloved gentleman of my heart. Joyce is my heart-sister. Cookie is my fox-sister.

12. MISC:
I drive a 2014 Honda CR-V. I have eight computers (sort of) -- a Macbook Air named Sinclair, a 27" iMac named Sheridan, a Raspberry Pi named Marcus, a thrice-damned Windows 8.1 netbook/tablet named Morden, a geriatric tangerine iBook named Byron, and two 1980s Apple IIs named Velen and Dukhat, and then my work computer is Lochley. Guess what my primary fandom is. I hate talking on the phone.

Beyond that, I'm pretty willing to answer questions :)
