10 Things About Us

Postby Tay on Mon Apr 16, 2007 7:34 am

I thought it might be fun if we all posted 10 things about ourselves so we might better get to know each other. If you want to post more than 10, don't let anyone stop you. I just thought 10 was a good number to start with.

  1. I'm 37 years old.
  2. I was a floral designer, now I'm webmistress, host and designer.
  3. I have been perpetually engaged since 1997 (neither of us is in any great hurry).
  4. I am owned by 2 cats.
  5. I'm not a fan of the "isms" (racism, sexism, elitism, etc.).
  6. Bad writing and bad editing drive me apeshitty.
  7. I love yoga.
  8. I believe in standing up for your principles. No qualifiers. Your real friends will always respect your opinion, even if they don't agree with it. If not, they aren't really friends.
  9. I like to laugh.
  10. I LOVE music. Everything about music.

Who's next? :D
