A little more about me
I am a pretty eclectic stew of stuff: I'm a 57 year old white gal who loves hip hop, drag racing, walking in the woods, some reality TV, yoga, alternative realities, science fiction, cheeseburgers, old amusement parks, Rev. Jesse Jackson, wearing sandals for as much of the year as possible, California, Art, and lemonade and animals. I don't deal well with passive aggressive and/or "unaware" people.
