R
You scored 47 due to language, 40 due to violence, 52 due to nudity, and 45 due to adult themes!
RESTRICTED: Under 17 Requires Accompanying Parent or Adult Guardian. "This film definitely contains some adult material. An R-rated film may include hard language, or tough violence, or nudity within sensual scenes, or drug abuse or other elements, or a combination of some of the above. If nudity is sexually oriented or if violence is too rough or persistent, the film is R-rated. A film's multiple use of one of the harsher sexually-derived words, though only as an expletive, requires the Rating Board to issue a film an R rating, as must even one of these words used in a sexual context."

I was born in Oak Park, Illinois, on October 14, 1971, and lived in the same house for 16 years. Dad followed a job to Greyhound Food Management HQ in Phoenix, AZ, moved back after 6 years; I stayed for 8 total, during which I returned to Chicago (Oak Park)/ Indiana (Valparaiso University) for one semester of school, and attempting more than a bit of long distance dating/ multiple boyfriends dating.

After a miserable college and boyfriend experience, I returned to Phoenix, where Mom was trying to sell the house, while Dad & my brother Andy were living with Grandma in Oak Park, and before they found the place in Naperville. My dad was already working at McCormick Place at this time. After 3 months of arguing with Mom, I moved in with the guy who later became my son's father. (Xon Wra Ledford III, August 10, 1993). After living together for maybe 3 years, we made an attempt to move, and I ended up in Chicago for about 9 months, with a 3 month old son. I then made the very bad mistake of following my son's father to Springfield, Missouri (There's more than one reason why it's called Misery). After a breakup (we never married), a custody battle, and more, I ended up marrying a new guy, and having a daughter when I was 23.(Lojen Tinara McClintock, August 8, 1995). About four years later, I got a divorce, and moved back to Chicago.

I now have a son I haven't seen since Easter, 1999, and a daughter being raised by my parents. I've since made peace with my son's father, Wra, but have had no contact with my daughter's father, Paul. Wra's parents have passed on. Paul's mother was visiting Lojen and sending packages for a while, but my mother scared her off. I haven't exactly made peace with my parents yet. My grandmother (mom's mother) is in a nursing home, with Alzheimer's Disease, or some other form of dementia. My other grandparents have passed on. I'm currently living with my dumbass bother (No, I don't think that's a typo. You thought I meant brother?), Andy, in Naperville. He's a couple years younger, and quite a bit dumber.

Since Labor Day, 2000, I've also visited Toronto, Canada on a regular basis. (Insert joke here, eh?) I try to keep an eye on Canadian events, news, fandom, and my favourite authors and poets, such as Robert J. Sawyer, Carolyn Clink, Julie Czerneda, Derwin Mak, Gemma Files, Steve Barringer, Jason Taniguchi, and more. I REALLY miss my Canadian sweetie, Drew. We "officially" broke up in 2002, but I kept visiting my other friends in Toronto, and it's clear that Drew & I still have strong feelings for each other. Damned immigration laws, too much time and money needed, too impatient... grr...

I'm also with the FIOWOL group (Fandom Is A Way Of Life) as compared to FIJAGDH (Fandom Is Just a God Damned Hobby), and this is referring to my love of science-fiction. I also consider myself an aspiring writer, rather than somebody who writes. Now, if only I could get off my lazy butt... I have dreams of winning a Hugo award for best science fiction novel. After attending a few Worldcons, this became quite a bit easier to imagine. Impossible dream? Sure... but isn't that what science-fiction is all about?

"Beam me up, Scotty. There's no intelligent life down here."
"Beam me down, Scotty. There's no intelligent life on this ship!"
"Beam me sideways, Scotty. Nobody here knows which way is up!"
"Hell, just beam me, Scotty!"
"Jim Beam up, Scotty."
"Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes..."
