Synopsis of Me - The Quickie

They say patience is a virtue, and I've got little enough of it to spare. I have come to realize that a lot of people come to this website and are blown over by the amount of crap I have here. Yes, there's a lot to digest. But most people just come here for a quick rundown - to learn a little bit more about this certain individual.

So this is for those of you that don't want to wade through all the muck just to learn the basics:

My name is Shanna (yes, named after the book). I live in the southern U.S. with my 4 cats and boyfriend. I'm 33, a true-blue Scorpio (Nov. 6) and am an I.T. Tech; I also own my own very small web design business, Scorpion Ink Web Design. Though I get paid to work with computers, my true gift and passion is writing. My website is peppered with my various stories, poetry, & erotica. I can also be quite the opinionated little wench. I believe religion is a personal thing, and therefore adhere to no particular sect; though I consider my lifestyle to be somewhat Buddhist-Pagan.

I'm in a long-term relationship and not looking, but if you're the determined, loves-a-challenge type, I'm skatoolaki on Yahoo! Messenger and on MSN. The chance of me meeting you offline is none to nil - but like I said, don't let that stop you (it never does anyway).

I collect quotations (ardently) and love vampires (but I'm not goth), am not to be crossed (revenge is my middle name), love a good laugh (always), and won't tolerate stupidity (ever). I'm a rare breed of girl-gamer, and play lots of The Sims 2, World of Warcraft and Everquest II.

The Basics

I absolutely hate it when people use "a/s/l?" as an opening statement online. Would you walk up to someone in real life and say that? Start out with something interesting, and work those questions into the conversation if it's so important to you.

I like to cut out any excess aggravation - on my old site I had a page that listed the basics about myself; the things you generally go over when getting to know someone. That way, if someone comes to my site before talking to me, we can skip over all the formalities and talk about something interesting other than which toothpaste I use and the color of my hair.


Some things I love forever, some things only for the moment. Being the intensely passionate little person that I am, I have lots of loves and favorites and here are some of them.
