phantomreader42's Journal

I can go from serious to silly with frightening speed. You'll see that in my journal.

I'm a bit odd, but fun once you get to know me. :)

I'd like to keep my real name and work out of this journal, so if you know these things, please respect my wishes and don't post them, and if you don't know don't ask. I'm not interested in talking about work anyway, and you don't need to know my real name. I'm mostly here to escape from the real world, express myself on random subjects, and communicate with friends here. I may spontaneously switch to lurking mode from time to time, it happens on most forums I've been to.

I first used this screen name at BookCrossing.com. I thought "Phantom Reader" would be an appropriate name for someone who leaves books behind anonymously, striking when no one is looking and disappearing before you know it, with no evidence of his presence but a free book left for whoever wants it. The "42" comes from The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

I spend probably more time than I should wandering around the Internet. You can find all sorts of crazy sites out there. In some circles I'm known as Lord of the Links. I've also got a reputation as a collector of naughty girls, but that's another story. :)

Most of my listed interests are copied from other people, which explains the multiple variations. Listing "aisha" as an interest has two entirely separate meanings.
