A little background on me

While my friends and family already know more about me than I ever needed them to, I realized that there are people out there who don't know me. Therefore, this dramatic life change of moving to Alaska may not seem so dramatic until you digest a few facts in my food fight existence.

I was born in California and have lived here all my life. I'm 31 years old now. I was born in May, so I think summer sun is in my blood. I'm also a twiglet, as my best friend likes to call me, so winter times can be a trial in keeping warm.

I don't travel much. I just... don't travel all that well. I get car sick easy and I refuse to fly. Boats I can handle as long as we're not too far from a shore. I have a fear of drowning. Hey, I'm a Taurus. I like to have my hooves planted solidly in the dirt. I'd roll in mud if I had the opportunity. It's wonderful for the skin!

The farthest I have been from home is LA (Disneyland trip with my family), Reno (massage classes), and somewhere in Washington State (visiting family).

I hope you are starting to see why moving to Alaska has totally flabbergasted most of the people who know me.

Now, I can hear you shrieking, "Why oh why is she wanting to move to a state that's on the other side of Canada where winter temps will be in the single digits on a warm day and only 70s in the summer? Is she insane?"

Well, if you look my blog over carefully, you'd see that I've already admitted to that.

As to other reasons, they do exist. But I need to go back to work. I'll post about those tomorrow. Maybe. (Grabs paper and pen, mumbling about finding at least one @#%# good reason before tomorrow.)

Wait, is this thing still on?

What can I say? I know everybody from around here wants out, but you're getting farther out than any of us! But seriously, may you both find all the happiness you want and deserve. It's gratifying to see good people rewarded.
(On another note, curse Blogger for refusing to capitalize proper names on comments. It's almost physically painful to see, especially for someone in our line of work!! :( )

Well, at least now I now it's done on purpose and not something that I was messing up!

Well, someone has to break the El Dorado County curse. I think this will definitely do it!

I admit to some confusion here. Some comments are clearly ads, but others I'm not sure what is begin said. Was it a mistaken comment meant for another blog? I'm not exactly sure how to answer.

But I wish to acknowledge those who comment on my posts, so here goes:

Anonymous One: Viagra. Cool.

Anonymous Two: I used to have big commutes in California. After having short commutes in Alaska (10 min to work, tops), I wouldn't recommend anyone commuting that long at any time of day! Or night!

Anonymous Three (repeated): I know absolutely nothing about shoes, except that I like Under Armour sneakers. Do what moves you.

Anonymous Four: Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Goodbye! Come again!
