My name is Linsey and this is my website.
I started uncouth heathen in May 2007. And here I am. Still alive.
I live in Seattle, Washington with my (awesome) dog Augustus Pullo (Gus) and my other (awesome) dog Bella, who will also answer to Carol for reasons unknown.
In 2014 my best friend, Cassie, moved in with me. This made life amazing and complicated because, in addition to being best friends, we’re also romantically involved off and on. And off. And on.
I used to have a cat, Ducati, but he passed away on June 19, 2013 at age 14. He’s buried in my yard where Gus enjoys peeing every morning.
During the day I work in downtown Seattle in a law office. During the evening, I work hard for the money.
I grew up in Shoreline, Washington just north of Seattle. I have an older brother (who has a son) and an older sister (who has a husband and a son). I also have two parents, still married after something like 400 years. They drive me crazy but I love the shit out of my family.
In sixth grade I started to think I might have the gay, but when you’re 12 years old and you go to a Catholic grade school and you don’t know anyone who is gay and your religious sex education text book says homosexuals are perverts who will go to hell, you start understand that there is really no other option than to keep that little bit of information to yourself. It is safe to say that at a very young age I learned there are a lot of things not to be shared with other people. Consequently, I am fiercely guarded. At the same time, it has taught me that where I lack trust in other people, I have ultimate trust in my ability to manage whatever difficulties come my way. However, I long deeply to shed all these protective layers and discover the person I have hidden away from the rest of the world. That’s sort of what this place is about. Sometimes.
In the spring of 1999 I moved to Japan for several months because I fell in love with a girl I met online. She was living in Tokyo for a year on a grant and I decided that it made perfect sense to leave my life and follow my heart. She was the first person to ever break my heart, but not the last. Despite the devastating consequences, I have looked back at that experience with great affection, because I learned that following my heart would lead me to some unbelievable places both in the world and within myself.
Shortly after returning I had a one night stand with my good friend’s best friend, Janie. A couple years after that, Janie and I started dating. After four years together we went to Las Vegas and got ourselves gay married. In May of 2010, Janie and I split up after 8 years together, which was emotionally difficult and challenging and required so much paperwork that I decided that I’m never getting divorced ever again. The next time I get married will be forever or until I’m murdered in my sleep. Or maybe I’ll just spend the rest of my life alone, all alone, feeling unloved and unwanted but able to sit on whatever part of the couch I feel like.
I like to talk a lot about things like my personal JOURNEY, spirituality, my soul, my heart, love and my evolving philosophies on life. It can get annoying, but I try to make up for it by eating too much sugar, drinking too much caffeine and then going completely nuts and talking a lot of nonsense.
If there is one thing I love more than cupcakes, it’s laughing. And talking. And making out. That’s three things, I realize, but they are all equally important to me.
I like sushi, Diet Pepsi, camping, fishing, late nights, singing in the car, Meryl Streep and Las Vegas.
I don’t like guilt trips, waking up early, vampires, peach schnapps, being ignored or cooked peas and carrots.
