Okay, if we're doing the intro thing again for the older posters too...
My name is Katie (hard to guess with a handle like Jedikatie
). I'm 34 for two more days, then I turn 35 on Thursday. And eight days after that my dad turns 70. And the day after that my youngest niece is 2. And four days after that is my brother's 34th birthday. Can you tell November is the birthday month in my family?
I have 3 nieces, one (frequently annoying, smart-aleck) brother, and an almost 14 year old Pekingnese/spaniel mix dog. I have a bachelor's degree in Classics (which was easier than aerospace engineering, my original major, and didn't require calculus
), and have wanted to be an astronaut since I got my first telescope when I was about 8 or 9 years old.
I've watched Star Trek since I was a little kid. I also love Alien Nation, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Farscape, Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time
books, Ghostbusters, Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern
series, and Colleen McCullough's First Man in Rome
series, among many others.
