    <div>Hi, fancy meetin' you here! </div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>My name is Catlin, interesting factoid:</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>Catlin (cat-lin) as a boy's name (also used as girl's name Catlin), is of Irish origin. Variant of Catherine (Greek) "pure". Surname. George Catlin was an American traveler and artist of the mid 19th century who is famous for his penetrating portraits of Native Americans.</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>... But my friends just call me Cat. *wink*</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>I am an <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' class="bbc_url" href='http://www.typelogic.com/infj.html'>INFJ</a>.</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>I have a fascination with animals, science, biology and nature. I was one of those weird smart kids who had a Magnum P.I. addiction and preferred watching National Geographic, The History channel and happy little Bob Ross lol. I spent the entirety of my childhood outside, wild and barefoot, climbing trees, playing in the dirt and catching snakes in the woods, to be honest, I still find that all quite appealing.</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>I don't get outside nearly as much as I would like to anymore, and I've found my time is often monopolized by other things not nearly as interesting, but when I am being interesting I enjoy reading (fave books: The Hobbit, Ender's Game), <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' class="bbc_url" href='http://www.writerscafe.org/writing/Raging.Skies/551721/'>writing</a>, <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' class="bbc_url" href='http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d115/FarSkies/Photography/995662950_l.jpg'>photography</a>, and <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' class="bbc_url" href='http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d115/FarSkies/Star%20Wars/l_034a16df6ee5dc7b282555b28aacff0d.jpg'>pencil art</a>. I've always had a very vivid and colorful imagination, and very much enjoy self expression through my creativity and sharing the inner workings of my mind with others.</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>When I'm not being creative, I'm competitive. I own and host an online gaming community and website, founded in 2008, we currently have 7 custom modded TF2 servers on a fully dedicated Linux box running a Dual Quad Core Xeon CPUs at 2.4Ghz, 16GB RAM, 500GB HDD, and Ubuntu 12.04. As the community grows, my free time shrinks lol. We currently have a player base of roughly 2000 people and still growing! (Lord have mercy!)</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>As I said, I'm an animal lover, and have kept many interesting pets in the past! Rats, mice, lizards, snakes, parakeets, doves, rabbits, frogs, turtles, hamsters, gerbils, hermit crabs, dogs, cats, fish, guinea pigs... I even had a pet praying mantis once! That was pretty cool...</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>I currently have a 75g aquarium home to a lone Comet Goldfish named Gandalf, named because when I got him he was silver, his brother, Merlin (a freakin' wizard who managed to eat 7 out of 12 minnows overnight), suffered from a neurological disorder due to consuming black algae that I was unaware was present in the tank, my stunning calico Ryukin was also a victim. After this horrible misfortune I eased off my fish keeping for a while, but now my enthusiasm is beginning to return and I am looking for a "home" where I can share that enthusiasm.</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>Aside from my aquarium, I also have 2 dogs! </div>

    <div>I'd have a small petting zoo if my husband wasn't so reasonable and skilled in verbal judo. &gt;_&gt;</div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>Speaking of my husband, yes, I am married! I know, all of the good ones are taken! lol. I met my husband on a site called plentyoffish.com, which I find pretty cool considering I'm a fish lover. I had to do a little persuading to get him to call me, considering I was 18 years his junior and 9 years younger than the minimum age range listed on his profile. You can read our love story we wrote together: <a data-ipb='nomediaparse' class="bbc_url" href='http://www.mywedding.com/catlinandjason/stories.html'>http://www.mywedding.com/catlinandjason/stories.html</a></div>
    <div> </div>
    <div>Well, that's me in a nutshell, I'm an open book so don't be afraid to ask questions or just say hello! I am hoping this is the community for me as I have had some pretty bad experiences on others. Thank you for reading, looking forward to making new friends!</div>
