Californicated born & raised Husker (aka Nebraskan, for those not football-savvy). Liberal high-heeled feminist. Political nerd. Boxer for Senate volunteer. Former ACLU intern. Attorney. Librarian. Professor. Newbie Buddhist. No tolerance for ignorance, stupidity, hatred...or Republicans. I fangirl Mary McDonnell, Tina Fey, Allison Janney, Amy Poehler, and many others. I love Battlestar Galactica, West Wing, MAJOR CRIMES, The Newsroom, Sons of Anarchy, Downton Abbey, The Walking Dead, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, Scandal, The Wire... Clearly I watch way more TV than is appropriate. Welcome to my odd mixture of fangirling and ultra-liberal politics, with a dash of zen.
