This is the spot where I’d tell you more about me. This info will be forthcoming in the near future, but for now, pretty much the little “about” box to the right sums me up nicely.
I make my living writing so if you can take a moment to visit some of my work blogs like Suite101, Why Go? Las Vegas (formerly Las Vegas Logue) and Uptake’s Lodging Blog, and click on some of the articles and links, that would be super. It helps me pay the bills, including keeping this blog up and running. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
What else? I love traveling, especially road trips. I prefer seeing a live band vs. a noisy dance club. I love gadgets and other electronic items. I’m a life-long geek. Seriously…the end speech of Revenge of the Nerds makes me cry everytime. But then so does the ending of The Color Purple and any episode of “Extreme Home Makeover“.
I was born in Wisconsin, but moved with my mom to British Columbia (that would be in Canada for the map challenged) when I was four. We bounced around the province until we moved back to Wisconsin at age 9. I graduated from Baraboo Sr. High (go T-Birds!) in 1985. Yes, I’m that old. I’ve lived in Florida since 1995, but I still revert back to my Wisconsin roots every now and then. I’m a proud puppy mama to a terrier/chihuahua named Leeshka, whom I inherited following the passings of my mom and gramma.
I live with my best friend Rhonda. If we were gay we’d be the perfect couple, as we’ve known each other for twenty years. But alas, we both prefer men. Family-wise, I lost my mom in 2005 to cancer, my dad the following year, also to cancer, and then my beloved maternal gramma in 2007 at Christmas, so I no longer have any super close family. I do have two three brothers via my dad. We’re still getting to know each other, but I think they’re all pretty groovy. I also have a best friend, Jim, whom I consider to be like my brother – we joke we’re evil twins. He helped me get through high school, and for that I’ll always be grateful. I also have various family in the Czech Republic, but I’ve only met them once and that was like 25 years ago. I hope to remedy that in 2010.
I dunno – I’m really bad at self-bios. I’ll do a proper “100 things”-type bio in the near future, I promise.
Until then, thanks for visiting my blog.
