Personal Quote Never pay retail. Never sleep in makeup. Never let 'em see ya sweat. And NEVER, EVER say "It is what it is," cuz it ain't.
About Me I'm a little* quirky & naturally drawn to other quirky people.
*Trans.: EXTREMELY! ;-D
Interests Nutrition & health, fitness, children, spirituality, self-improvement
Hobbies Riding, camping, reading, writing
Music 80's New Wave, Classic Rock, Electronica (My son's band The Glide on myspace theglidemusic is the BEST! When he makes it big, he's buyin' me a place ON the beach!)
Movies Wizard of Oz, ET, Billy Elliott
TV Dexter, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me... and I confess a bit of an addiction to extremely lame reality shows like Rock of Love (I know... but step 1 is ADMITTING it!)
Books I could use this question to make myself appear ever so intellectual, but I adore trashy, fun, fast-moving novels & uplifting non-fiction & books about writing (I read more about writing than I actually write!)
Likes Crazy, fun people; music & dancing; appetizers; motorcycles & scooters; books; babies & children; thrift shops.
Dislikes Superficiality & phoniness; mean spirited people; brussel sprouts; bee-yotches; closed-mindedness
Vices I smoke. There, I've said it: I smoke & I am therefore the devil incarnate. I know I need to quit (the patches I bought will expire in 3 months!). I will never be rid of my cheese addiction, cholesterol be damned. Wine & non-sweet cocktails. Salty crunchy everything. Some reality TV...
Virtues Please. If I have any, that's for someone ELSE to decide.
