I graduated from Texas State University with an English degree (in Creative Writing) and I firmly believe my diploma is my license to make up words at will. I (used to) work in advertising and common logic (and my company’s social media policy)
says said one shouldn’t mix the Web with work so I’ll just say I’m I was a proofing machine everywhere except here, where I (still) like to babble in long, incoherent sentences and split infinitives like checks.
I’ve traveled most of Europe (more so West than East) and I’ve lived in Cork, Berlin and Amsterdam. And Louisiana. (I will fight you if you try to tell me that’s not its own country.) I once pulled an intact obsidian blade from an excavation site in Romania that’s from the Aeneolithic-Bronze age, I’ve survived brain surgery, rode a mechanical bull in New Orleans and stabbed myself in the ass with my own knife. Not all at the same time.
I am fluent in several languages, but only in my sleep.

FACT: I’m 10 pounds more awesome on YouTube.
FACT: I’m here today because of a massive stroke of luck. I’m an aneurysm survivor.
New FACT: I’m pregnant. Please excuse the momentary pause in debauchery as I grow a little boy in my belly. (Due date: May 23, 2012.)
Updated FACT: Had that baby boy and OMG he’s awesome. Also, I’m no longer working in advertising so I should update that bio. And I will, but right now it’s more being in awe and snuggling the wee one like a proper first-time parent.
Even MORE Updated FACTS: Hi! I’m rescuing this blog from the despair of a WordPress file corruption. UPDATE YOUR WORDPRESS, FOLKS! I’m still hanging out with the little man, scribbling where I can and dipping my “Yes, And…” back in the pool. Life is good, y’all.
Ahem: You guys, I’ve had this blog for ELEVEN years! I drink much more champagne now than I do vodka, but ELEVEN YEARS! I think that deserves a toast. *CHEERS!*
