Hey, I'm all for the few remaining LJ users (well, "few" comparatively speaking) finding each other.
The first time I tried to comment on the original post, it got marked as "spam," probably because I included a link to the SCA. I took it out and then the comment posted. Anyway, here are my answers the way I originally wrote them.
1.) Name (What you want to be called): Patty or Patricia (either is fine)
2.) Timezone: U.S. Eastern
3.) Languages: English
4.) Hobbies: The Society for Creative Anachronism is my great hobby, interest and passion. It's the overarching framework for a lot of my other activities. That said, I'd list my current hobbies as reading, fiber arts (especially knitting), English country dancing, and playing music (percussion and recorder) for English country dancing.
5.) Interests: Lithuanian history, heraldry, astronomy, history of science.
5 1/2.) Fandoms: I lean more to Star Trek than Star Wars. Also: Big Bang Theory, Harry Potter, and a whole lotta bands and TV series that don't exist anymore.
6.) Passions: Progressive politics, Unitarian Universalism
7.) Guilty pleasure music/song/band: Various '80s and alternative stuff
8.) Level of activity on LJ: (i.e., frequent updater, lurker, just a commenter, etc.) I post about 9 to 15 times a month, depending on mood.
9.) DNW: far-right conservatives, tea partiers, homophobic racists and sexists
10.) Words to live by: If I am not for myself, who will be? If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?
1.) Do you have faith in the next generation? Why? My friends' kids are awesome. I hope certain people in the older generation don't ruin our world before they inherit it.
2.) What makes you laugh? The humor posts on the "Single Dad Laughing" blog
3.) What exotic pet would you like to have? I don't think people should have exotic pets.
4.) What is the next planned event you're looking to in your life? A professional conference in October

I find it inspiring that Weird Al Yankovic is having the best year of his career at age 55! I find this song of his hilarious because I am such a grammar nerd:
