Name:cynthia1960
Birthdate:Aug 12
Location:California, United States
I share a little bit of the Silicon Valley (work in the portion that's just a typo away from the Buffyverse Hellmouth, live two cities south). The Loft of Fur, Fiber, and Fruity Widgets has recently gone downtown! along with my beloved [personal profile] emceeaich, my Benevolent Feline Overladies(TM), Their Felinitys Yukino and Hitomi, and the next generation of feline overladies in training, Elizabeth and Lydia (aka the Tribble Sisters). There are also five spinning wheels, four looms, some moderately large number of Macs and iThings and an extremely large and eclectic book collection which probably needs culling before the extra weight triggers an earthquake. The book collection (predominantly SF/fantasy) has been joined by an ever-growing yarn and fiber collection (with more specialized books) and several spinning, weaving, and knitting projects in progress.

I make really tiny slices with high energy ion beams and bounce X-rays off of shiny things for money when I'm not reading, knitting, or stuck in traffic. I won't go into more detail, because people's eyes begin to glaze over if they're not in the industry, but hey, it pays the bills, keeps my feline bosses in cat food and kitty litter, and enhances the stashes of books, yarn, and beads.

I have a large family of the human and furry persuasions. I am currently watched over by the late great Tabby (1965-1980) and Snickers (1995-2011) while they're napping on the Lady Bast's lap, and also my late d*ggy siblings Salty, Bojangles, Missy, and Baxter who are out chasing squirrels in the canine afterlife.

I have an additional blog, Yet another timesink (infrequently updated) and am also cynthia1960 on LJ, Twitter, and Ravelry.

This is my space. Guests are welcome, but if your behavior makes you unpleasant to be around, do not be surprised if you are shown the door and asked never to return.
