Usually, often, or presently:
unnatural redhead, unemployed, disabled, suffering from CFIDS and fibromyalgia and other crap like that. An "untrustworthy" age. Dating and living with digitalsidhe. Writing several mediocre but saleable genre novels. ADD as heck. Medicated for anxiety and depression. Neurology hobbyist, biology dillettante. Dizzy, exhausted, migrainous, fatigued, foggy-headed, and has a memory like one of those whatsits you drain vegetables in. Freak. Leftist, not liberal, even radical, but lazy and cynical. Clotheshorse, even clothing addict. Forgetful. Bisexual. Polyamorous, not looking very hard. In a wheelchair, or on a cane. Or horizontal.

Writing various novels, including a Rowlingverse fanfic practice piece over in ivy_hawthorne.

Occasionally:
Haiku author and strident defender of Japanese-style haiku vs. Americanization into crap. Wannabe Miss Manners (etiquettist? Etiquetteer?). Evil bitch (lazy). OCD about details. Obsessed with office and art supplies. A strident defender of the English language. A big whiner, despite efforts to be entertainingly pissy, punk-ass, and strident. A chibipunk. Fox-like or fox-obsessed. Bead jewelry-maker (who never remembers to get photos of her damn work before giving it away, or making or wearing her work for herself). A really bad knitter. Incoherent, despite supposed writing ability. Able to actually cook above the level of "just making dinner", most likely a monstrously decadent dessert. Poorly verbal. Shy. Evil. Telephone-phobic. Neurotic. Euro-trashy Euro-snob. Expensive but exquisite taste. Out and proud secret stealth spy. Too sick to sit up. Strident about disability rights.

Previously:
Employed by a Major Corporation on somewhat geeky business with suspicious-sounding job title. Employed in the "abuse at dot com" field. HTML coder ("the construction workers of the World Wide Web, but without the union and the Mafia connections"). Production Manager and staff editor/writer/copyeditor/resident cranky punk of a now-defunct national bisexual magazine. Bisexual activist. SoMa resident. Dating some other people. Healthy.

Even more previously:
Involved with a small-press science fiction/fantasy magazine now defunct. Resident of the East Coast, London, and other bits of Western Europe. Employed by the US Government in somewhat glamorous-sounding and mildly suspicious departments with very dull actual duties. Semi-professional personal image consultant.

Never:
Able to tolerate spicy foods, lactose, or disco. Raver. Fan of raverish electronica techno-whatever music. Collegiate. Burning Man. Tacky. Cheap. Timely, unless an expensive ticket or publishing date is involved.

Can be bribed with:
Congressional votes. Certain types of classified information. Large stacks of nonsequential bills. Amazon gift certificates. Expensive European imported treats. Hi-grade Eurobooze. Dinner at good non-spicy restaurants. Opportunities to do great evil with little effort. Shopping sprees. Book contracts, agents, or other publishing 'ins' will be negotiable.

First, some charitable donations.
If you're going shopping, try doing it through http://www.igive.com which will donate a varying small percentage of your purchase to the charity of your choice (as long as said charity is signed up through iGive, of course. If you work for a nonprofit, consider getting on their list - doesn't look too complicated.)
