Searching for Normalcy

"And finally, above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art…" – Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Because I really don’t feel like working right now but still have few minutes to kill before I can sign out for the day…


You get a new meme! (I know, but please, try to contain your excitement.)


A. Age: 42

B. Bed size: Queen.
C. Chore that you hate: Cleaning the bathroom.
D. Dogs: No pets currently, but we really want to get a puppy once we settle into our own place in WA. Fanless wants a St. Bernard; I want a Shiba Inu or American Eskimo. We’ll see what happens.
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee. Always coffee.
F. Favorite color: Black. I know, boring.
G. Gold or Silver: Preferably silver.
H. Height: 5’6", although for the majority of my life I could have sworn I was 5’7”.
I. Instruments you play: Ah, this is a good one. In high school I took a keyboard class as an elective. But I am completely tone-deaf. So the only things I actually learned to play were the “dun dun dun, dun dun dun…” from the theme song for “Halloween” and the intro to Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home.”
J. Job title: Oh lord, it’s such a made-up title it’s not even funny: Content Quality Specialist. It does not describe what I actually do in any way, shape or form.
K. Kids: None.
L. Live: Miami, FL
M. Mother’s name: Der… it’s Mom! (Seriously, my mom’s name is rather unique and I’d rather not share that info here for privacy reasons.)
N. Nicknames: Lou, Lulu, Balou, Balulu, lady, devil woman
O. Overnight hospital stays: I’ve had three extended hospital stays, all for different surgeries.
P. Pet peeves: This is a very, VERY long list. At the top, though? Rude people, bad drivers (gee, you think those two stem from living in South Florida??), people who don’t know the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’, and people who spell ‘ridiculous’ with an E (rediculous).
Q. Quote from a movie: “Wayne! I think we’ve established that "Ca-caw, ca-caw" and "Tookie, tookie" don’t work” (from Evolution. I love that movie.)
R. Right or left handed: Right handed.
S. Siblings: Yes, one older sister.
U. Underwear: Yes.
V. Vegetable you hate: Cucumber. Blecccchhhh!
W. What makes you run late: Traffic. My hair.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: All kinds. Chest, abdomen, leg and foot (broke my foot in the 5th grade), ankle (another childhood injury; luckily it was just a sprain), MRI, mammogram, dental. I think that’s it.
Y. Yummy food that you make: I think I make a really killer lasagna.
Z. Zoo animal: Oh, I love penguins! And little monkeys, like squirrel monkeys.
