Not that Allergywoman is miffed, irked, seething or anything about her bio being deleted for being over the character limit, but she's miffed about her cute bio being gone forever because it's over 255 characters. So she's going to do her bio here. Feel free to ignore, as this is just rampant silliness, and no one needs that with all the good political news these days. Right?


Allergywoman was born in a small log hospital somewhere in the Midwest at some time, to '60s era liberals who actually didn't do drugs, so they remember the event well. Allergywoman doesn't, but she generally trusts them, so she assumes the above is true.

From an early age, Allergywoman was a voracious reader, who made it through the Wizard of Oz books at age six. (She actually read them afterward.) She continues to read just about anything she can get her hands on, other than biographies, sports, and Westerns.

Allergywoman's mind was corrupted by contact with our public school system, which caused her to become an Evangelical Christian for a while.

What? She kept her liberal political and social views, and eventually got better. Besides, it gave her great respect for Tony Campolo.

Eventually Allergywoman got married, spawned a huge flock of birds, became a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls/crushing ice/"doing research" on all sorts of things, deconverted from Christianity, reconverted to Paganism, antidisestablishmentariantated herself from the Democratic Party which is as a whole too conservative, and conceived a deep hatred for non-emergency use of cell phones.

You may be able to follow an Allergywoman on Twitter, but it is not this Allergywoman, who hates cell phones and will not own one.

Allergywoman loves good movies, great comedy in all media, books, small cute animals, and cooking. She hates being called worse than Saddam because she exercises her First Amendment rights, bad movies, spiders (which are evil), and most forms of censorship. Those who have called Allergywoman a "genius of comedy," a "brave new voice in our national dialogue," or a "grammar Nazi" simply because she cares about proper English usage and you don't, mostly don't exist. But she wishes they did. Other than the last one, I mean.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
