About Me

So, I have noticed that I have a couple of new followers (welcome!). I have thus decided to make this little post introducing myself.

Hi! My name is Katie. I am a thirty-something living in northern Minnesota. I currently work in a call center (blech). I also like cats more than I like most people (see above).

I have been running this blog since 2013, but haven’t really been updating it seriously until this past January. The title, “Wrath Of The Bitch Queen,” is basically a play on the second World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath Of The Lich King. Because I am a fan of WoW, puns, and reclaiming the word “bitch.”

I am a huge nerd, and have been one for pretty much my entire life. I grew up watching numerous sci-fi series like Star Trek and Babylon 5, as well as a number of movies of the same genre. I also read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy novels, and have been very into video games since I was about 18. Those are the topics that I generally tend to blog about.

I currently have a PayPal site (which sometimes is in German for some reason), and a Ko-Fi link, for people who want to make a coffee-sized donation. I have also set my Patreon page back up.

Mythology Monday: How Cú Chulainn Got His Name

It’s that time of week again, and this week we’re going to take a look at a bit of Irish mythology. Specifically, I’m going to be talking about one of Ireland’s most well known cultural heroes, Cú Chulainn. More specifically, I’m going to be talking about how he came to be called Cu Chulainn in the first place.

Also, Cú Chulainn is not pronounced the way you think it is. Nothing in Irish is pronounced the way you think it is.

Tiers, and the changing thereof

Hello, friends!

You may have noticed that I’ve changed the tiers on my Patreon a little bit. I wasn’t particularly fond of the $5 tier, since nothing in it seemed all that great. With that, I decided to make post suggestions open to all patrons (well, all readers of the blog, really, but patrons get shot up to the front of the list). I also decided to offer a tangible reward for the second tier. Basically, that reward is that I will knit or crochet an item and send it to patrons who give $10/post or more. These would be smaller items, such as a hat, scarf, wrist warmers, or washcloths. Bigger items, such as blankets, would be a bit prohibitive in both cost of materials and shipping, unless it’s a small blanket for a baby or pet.

I’m thinking that this change makes things a little bit clearer, and would offer supporters a more tangible reward for their support.

Thanks, guys!
