High-heel wearin', dragon-loving, wine-drinking science geek fangirl. Outspoken yet tactful liberal who believes in personal responsibility. Smites hypocrites & liars.
"I can think of nothing more gallant, even though again and again we fail, than attempting to get at the facts; attempting to tell things as they really are. For at least reality, though never fully attained, can be defined. Reality is that which, when you don't believe in it, doesn't go away." ~Peter Viereck
