About



There are many (auto)biographies about me on the internet, most notably at my other sites. You will likely get more details from those places. Here, these are some random facts and interests about me that you may or may not already know, or may or may not be interested in. Read at your own risk. I’m pretty darn weird, if I’m to be completely honest with you and myself. Hehe.

  1. I have weird food issues: I don’t generally eat anything red (except for certain foods).
  2. I am very low key when it comes to style: I wear what’s comfortable and could give a damn whether or not I match.
  3. I was a whopping 99 pounds for the longest time (approximately 10 years) until I got pregnant at the end of October, 2007.

  6. I don’t lie, and I never cheat.
  7. I don’t play relationship games, whether it be with friends or with my lover.

  16. I adore children — all of ‘em, even the bratty, spoiled ones. Hehe.
