About meKay Dekker passed away on the 7th July 2011. He will be missed by many.
A guy, though from my writing of difficultly discernible gender, with a few regrets who hasn't yet written any X Files slash. My fairly gender-ambiguous forename of choice probably makes discerning my gender more difficult, though that has no connexion with why I use it: I don't like the name my parents gave me.
Cheese is a Good Thing: I like them all, pretty much, apart from Gjetost, which I loathe.
For employment I'm currently a technical writer and editor, unfortunately underworked right now, though really I'm a research scientist. I know far too much about far too many things.
My interests: a hill of beans, abhog, abiku, ablative constructions, astereopsia, banjax, being a rampante flirtebeeste, being obstinately english, bill clayton, boustrophedon, bumblepuppies, catamites, chiasma, cilantro is nasty, cleft finches, cockmongering, conductus, discantus, epilepsy auras, fauxbourdon, gamma globulins, hapax legomena, harpocrates, helminths, hendiadys, holborne, idioglossia, isorhythm, jardinieres, kvass, lime-hounds, magical sciences, maieusis, manteomancy, matthew bartholomew, mhw, muddle-headed wombat, naevi, nice cup of tea, non-sexual intimacy, oboli, onychophora, penis expertise, phenomenalism, philtrums, piripiri, quamoclits, recipe whoring, redaction, saxhorns, saxitoxin, sexual axolotls, t00bing, tarlatan, the phantom cockmonger, the wurst prinzip, tyromancy, ullage, verd antique, virelais, wasp honey, weelkes, wherries, xysti, yellow ink, yonmei, zygomatic arches.
I live at 52°27'5.09"N 1°30'43.26"W.
About my libraryEclectic and disorganised. I aim to increase the first quality and decrease the second, which is one reason that I'm here. I'm hoping to get all my books added to LT, classified, labelled and shelved neatly by the end of 2007.
Please note that I don't possess any/many of the books tagged 'project'; they are data for a research project.
Similarly, books tagged 'library' or 'borrowed' have been borrowed (usually from Coventry City Libraries, or from friends).
Those tagged 'mine' actually are mine!
