About Me

I am not your typical, everyday, run of the mill woman. Being normal is vastly overrated. I have the tendency to speak as a thought occurs to me, so I usually end up with my foot in my mouth most of the time. I am a sarcastic person for a great portion of my waking hours, and I find myself immensely amusing at times. I've learned that it's boring and tedious to take things too seriously. Hate is an enormous waste of energy, I’d much rather do other things. (Of course it goes without saying that there are things I dislike.) I find stupid people extremely irritating, but unfortunately they keep multiplying in staggering numbers.

I am a single mother of three. One girl, two boys. My kids are some the best you could ever hope to meet! Being a single mother is an undertaking all of its own. It’s a joy, heartache, wonder, pain in the ass, entertainment…you get the picture. The truth is I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I have recently become engaged to the one who completes and complements me in every way. I am still unsure as to the stroke of luck that came my way in the form of my fiance'- however, I'm not one to question fate.

I am a voracious reader and an avid movie goer. I like to be entertained. I love enlightening conversations, thunderstorms and warm, toasty fires. I enjoy learning new things, no matter what the topic. My music tastes are in a word: eclectic.

Vampires have always fascinated me, much like most things mysterious and unexplainable. I look forward to all the things you all know, teach away…


I’ve known her for 16 long, blackmail filled years. She not only knows what skeletons I have in my closet, she knows where the bodies are buried.

Though I’ve never met him personally, (This will be rectified in the near future, I hope.) he’s cool by association- just like me! ;-)


She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.
–Louisa May Alcott

Most people who have known me more than a day will say this is true of me. I love to read. Reading is, like going to the movies, an escape from the everyday humdrum of life for me. Conversely, it can also be the much needed dose of reality I need to put myself, my problems, and my life into perspective. I will read pretty much anything someone puts in front of me. I may not like every book I’ve read, but I will say I enjoy reading them. I love learning new things and what better way to learn then to read.

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
– Barbara Tuchman

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed on and digested.
– Francis Bacon

My reading choices vary greatly depending on the mood I am currently in. I prefer to read mysteries, thrillers, suspense, and paranormals and of course- being woman- romances. (So sue me- I like Nora Roberts!) I will read non-fiction if it is a subject that interests me, if someone recommends it, of if I feel it is something I should know. If a book can make you really think, even change the way you think- it’s worth it. Too many people are ignorant of a great many subjects and all they have to do is read to become a little more knowledgeable and hopefully, a little less judgmental.

Some books leave us free and some books make us free.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum -- of both books and money! But especially books, for books represent infinitely more than money. A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.
– Henry Miller

Seeing as I feel the way I do about books, it should be no surprise that I am currently going to school to get my Library Sciences degree. I am going to be a librarian. Eventually I will get my Master’s in reading, but that is a ways off still. I can’t think of a better way that I can contribute to society than to help people become aware of where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re headed- books do this.

For books are more than books, they are the life
The very heart and core of ages past,
The reason why men lived and worked and died,
The essence and quintessence of their lives.

– Amy Lowell

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
– Mark Twain


I like all kinds of music. Anything from rock to big band, indie to country, metal to classical.Music to include in the soundtrack of my life(In no particular order!): NIN, Korn, System of a Down, Green Day, waxapples, Hot Hot Heat, Foo Fighters, My Chemical Romance, Maroon 5, The Killers, Fall Out Boy, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Queensryche, No Doubt, Rooney, Yellow Card, Violent Femmes, Strokes, Evanescence, 30 Seconds to Mars, Blue October, Augustana, Michael Buble, Lifehouse, Aqualung, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Josh Grobin, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Taking Back Sunday, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts, The Unknown, Cheap Trick, Barry White, Al Green, Heatwave, Glenn Miller, Bach, Mozart... just to name a few! ;-) I am an eclectic music fan. Play me anything...

The song currently heard here is:
To Another World from The Looking Glass Wars soundtrack

Music is an essential part of my life. Just like a movie- my life has a soundtrack. Play me a song and if I know it, it will bring back memories-good or bad- of where I was.


I love going to the movies! They provide me with a much needed break from reality when I’m stressed or upset. Watching a character solve a world crisis, lose the love of their life and find love again, or just kicking ass can be exhilarating and maybe help me put things into perspective just a bit. The way I figure it is that no matter how bad I think I have it, someone out there has it worse. And if you’re not careful- you may just learn something… even if most of them are just made up.

These posters represent just a few of my favorites. If I was to put them all- we’d be here forever. =)


Since I am going to school I don't have a whole lot of time to watch TV. There are a few shows that I try not to miss... NCIS, Heroes, Numbers and Ghost Whisperer.

Just for Fun

Traditional Capricorn Traits
-Practical and prudent
-Ambitious and disciplined
-Patient and careful
-Humorous and reserved

On the dark side....
-Pessimistic and fatalistic
-Miserly and grudging

Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves. They are reliable workers in almost any profession they undertake. They are the major finishers of most projects started by the 'pioneering' signs; with firm stick-to-it-ness they quickly become the backbone of any company they work for.

Capricornians make of themselves, resourceful, determined managers; setting high standards for themselves and others. They strive always for honesty in their criticism of self, they respect discipline from above and demand it from those beneath them. In their methodical, tough, stubborn, unyielding way, they persist against personal hardship, putting their families and/or their work before their own needs and welfare to reach their objectives long after others have given up and fallen by the wayside. In fact when practical ability allied with the drive of ambition are required in employees to make a project succeed, Capricornians are the people to hire. They plan carefully to fulfill their ambitions (which often include becoming wealthy), they are economical without meanness, and able to achieve great results with minimum effort and expense. Because of their organizing ability they are able to work on several projects simultaneously.
They have a great respect for authority but may not, if they reach high rank, be willing to listen to other opinions on things they are directly responsible for. As the ranking authority figure in a given situation they expect their underlings to be as self disciplined as they themselves are, and to perform every task undertaken to the highest standard.

They are, nevertheless, fair as well as demanding. Among their equals they are not always the most pleasant of work fellows for they are reserved and too conservative, valuing tradition more than innovation, however valuable the latter, and they are often humorless. There is also a tendency to pessimism, melancholy and even unhappiness which many Capricornians are unable to keep to themselves, especially if they fail personally. In the extreme this trait can make them a very depressed individual; ecstatic happiness alternating with the most wretched kind of misery which is so subconsciously buried that he or she should seek help if such emotions become frequent. For the above reason, capable Capricorn should spend many hours in meditation, gathering the strength to control such inner emotions.

The swings in mood are not the only reason some Capricornians deserve the adjective based on their name - capricious. They can be surprisingly and suddenly witty and subtle for the quiet, reserved individuals they seem to be, and they also have a tendency to ruin things by unexpected and utterly irresponsible bouts of flippancy. In certain individuals in whom the characteristic is strong, the temptation to do this has to be resisted with iron self-control. Another unexpected quality in some Capricornians is an interest in the occult which persists in spite of their naturally skeptical turn of mind.

Their intellects are sometimes very subtle. They think profoundly and deeply, throughly exploring all possibilities before deciding on a 'safe' alternative. They have good memories and an insatiable yet methodical desire for knowledge. They are rational, logical and clearheaded, have good concentration, delight in debate in which they can show off their cleverness by luring their adversaries into traps and confounding them with logic.

In their personal relationships they are often ill-at-ease, if not downright unhappy. They are somewhat self-centered but not excessively so, wary and cautious around people they do not know very well, preferring not to meddle with others and in turn not to allow interference with themselves, thus they tend to attract people who do not understand them. Casual acquaintances they will treat with diplomacy, tact and, above all, reticence. They make few good friends but are intensely loyal to those they do make, and they can become bitter, and powerful enemies. They sometimes dislike the opposite sex and test the waters of affection gingerly before judging the temperature right for marriage. Once married, however, they are faithful, though inclined to jealousy. Most Capricornians marry for life.

Their occupations can include most professions that have to do with math or money and they are strongly attracted to music. They can be economists, financiers, bankers, speculators, contractors, managers and real estate brokers. They excel as bureaucrats, especially where projects demanding long-term planning and working are concerned, and their skill in debate and love of dialectic make them good politicians. They are excellent teachers, especially as principals of educational establishments where they have the authority to manage and organize without too much intimacy with the staff members. If working with their hands, they can become practical scientists, engineers, farmers and builders. The wit and flippancy which is characteristic of certain Capricornians may make some turn to entertainment as a career.
