I am Judy Anderson, yclept yduJ. yduJ rhymes with fudge, and is always capitalized as above, even at the start of a sentence.
A brief history: I've been on the
information superhighway since it was a goat track.
Oh my god I'm a mother! How did that
happen? Not only that, for a while I was the maintainer of the website for
the local MOMS Club!
Eek. How domestic!
Even more domestically, I decided to store my
recipes online. Bon appetit! (Maybe I shouldn't have, because
many of them are uncredited, and I stole them from somewhere, but
copied them here for convenience. Some are original creations,
though, and some are in fact credited.)
I used to spend too much time on MUDs. Specifically I'm an administrator of
There were a number of others which I used to hang out on, but they've
pretty much all disappeared.
On occasion, I write up interesting experiences I've had. In addition
to these below I'm highlighting, I have a number of vacation travelogues.
I've also been
writing less formal reports on my DreamWidth blog, so the
above haven't been getting updated as often as previously. I used
LiveJournal originally, before it turned into a pit of slime.
I've been on Twitter but
now that it is also turning into a pit of slime, migrating to
I've even been published!I've also written a lot of MOO documentation.
My housemate Valerie
wrote a poem
for my late cat, Frankie (RIP March 1998). Sadly, my longest living cat, Mottle,
who was the best cat on the planet, is no longer with us (RIP 9/13/03).
I had gotten a "backup cat", Squeak, but unfortunately
she also failed to stay out of the road (RIP 9/17/02). I was catless
for about 9 months until I got a new cat named Tilly,
but unfortunately she didn't work out. I found a new home for her,
and then in March 2006 ended up with two more new kitties, Tawny and Chloe. September is a bad month
for cats. Tawny was hit by a car after only six months (RIP 9/21/06).
Chloe reveled in the remaining single-cat household, but
four years later, my daughter wanted a kitten, so in July 2010 we took
delivery of an 8 week old kitten whom she named Tiptoe. (Chloe predictably didn't like her.)
Unfortunately, Tiptoe was hit by a car at age 2 (RIP 10/13/12).
Chloe was indeed destined to be in a single-cat household, until her
death at age 14, of lung cancer (RIP 2/20/19).
In 2021 I got two geriatric cats,
Jetty. Jetty only
lasted a couple of months (RIP 3/23/21). Downy is still with us, and hopefully for
a while still, cross fingers!
Valerie also wrote up our Winter Solstice ritual.
Before I had kids, I used to have non-net hobbies as well, including Western Square Dancing and sailing on my

My former housemate Tim has a
journal in which he has photos of me and other housemates and our
house, among other things.
