17catherines's Journal

16 April 1976
I live in Melbourne, Australia, with my husband, jesusandrew and two black and white cats, Mystery and Mayhem who are determined to live up to their names. I work as an admin officer in a medical research institute, where I look after about fifty assorted delinquent academic children, including several professors of varying degrees of eminence and lunacy. This is the natural outcome of qualifications in Genetic Counselling, French and Medieval History).

In my spare time (ho, ho), I sing in a choir, read a lot, cook a lot, and occasionally write stories (including one novel, unpublished and currently unlikely to ever see the light of day). My most time-consuming hobby at present is organising a series of Shakespeare readings - with a group of friends, we are reading the complete works of Shakespeare aloud at the rate of one play per month, with themed (and excessive) feasts to provide sustenance for this feat. Also, I'm currently madly making confectionery, but this will undoubtedly either stop soon or turn into a small business (even odds as to which happens first). I also volunteer with a support organisation for people with genetic conditions, so my genetic counselling qualification isn't totally irrelevant after all... except that I'm the Treasurer, and the skill I really bring to this job is the ability to write humorous gothick treasurer's reports which people actually want to read (I educate the committee about our finances in spite of themselves).

I used to be addicted to the Weather Channel, but we don't have it anymore. So instead I have a weather pixie. Sometimes she dresses like me. Sometimes she has a cat. Sometimes not. She always has weather, though...
