"I don't think I need special effects and, with my luck, would get distracted by shiny."
Hi, I'm Chrissy. I go by other names as well--often, people who don't listen past two syllables call me Christine.
I watch NFL and college football, and I am a huge hockey fan. Sometimes I cross-stitch and I am obsessed with The Sims 2. Once upon a time I watched too much TV, but then everything I liked went off the air. Despite this, I still really like fandom. It's good for what ails ya.
I am introverted and in recovery from 15+ years of semi-severe social anxiety. I say this as a warning that if I am not very good in conversation with you, it's probably not that I don't like you, it's just that I'm not good with people. I love to listen though, really.
My LJ is primarily a social tool, and thus I feel that I can write the way I talk, which is not always perfectly grammatical and proper. I squee, I do *actions like this* and say things like c'mon and probly and OMG and other sorts of things. I don't use "u" or very much chatspeak and I'm fairly sure my writing will not be overly harsh on the eyes.
My LJ is almost entirely friendsonly, for reasons which I will explain to anyone who wants to know.
