Confessions of a Night Walker

Hello.  My name is Roxanne, and I'm a nightwalker. 

(this is where y'all say "Hi Roxanne" and clap).

No, I'm not talking about being a vampire.  Or a sleepwalker.  I'm just nocturnal.

Don't get me wrong, I do like the sun.  I really do.  It's a really great thing.  But...I'm really at my best at night, and I don't mean a measly 11pm, when most of y'all daywalkers have turned in and

Why the Sexism in Video Games Issue is Important...
 A Little History: 
(Possible links to websites that may be triggers)

Insomnia Sux

Okay, I went and got my schedule all turned around.  Insufficient sleep for the last two weeks, and poor sleep at that.  I finally crashed last night, woke up at four, and here I am, almost five in the morning and still awake.


Where's Roxie Been

Shame on me.  Shame, shame, shame.  I've not posted in over half a year.

Why?  The short answer?  I've been buys.  The long answer?  I've been busy working on something that I wasn't ready to talk much about.
