About Me

Hello!  My name is Melissa, more commonly known as either Measi or Mel on the web.  I’m a fortysomething New Englander by way of college, although I was born and raised in the Rockies.  I’m married to a fellow geek named Erich, Mom to an adorable little boy named Max, and we’re owned by five very eccentric cats, plus one kitten that we deny we own (it’s our housemate’s cat. Really).

You’ll normally find me wandering through bits and pieces of the web (and I’ve been in quite a few places over the years, depending on my interests): World of Warcraft, cross stitching forums, fountain pens, snail mail, LiveJournal, Doctor Who and X-Files fandom communities, Pagan sites, Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter.

In past years, I used Diary-X, Diaryland, and Blogger to write. I’ve now found myself more comfortable in WordPress on my own website, and I’m trying to develop the blog I used to write in frequently. Comments are love – please drop me a line even if it’s just to let me know you’re reading.

“Geeky Witch” came about when I was in a very devout stage of my Pagan faith. I’m not as active as I used to be – the faith structure is still there, but actual practice has been on a bit of a… walkabout… the past couple years. It’s not a bad thing. I think that I’m just meant to be focusing on more corporeal/material matters these days, rather than the spiritual.

Other things, I’ll let you learn about me via my entries. It’s probably the better (and more accurate) way to meet me.

    Hi Mel,

    Just joined your stitch along and glad to be here! I am also a fellow Rhode Islander. Howdy neighbor! 🙂

    I am so sorry for your loss. Melissa can I give this obituary to the Billings paper? Tom is revered here in Billings.
