Some other random facts:
I love mango salsa and weird pizzas such as asiago and mushrooms.
I spent a total of 8 years in the Army.
I was a broadcast journalist and a print journalist… and a public affairs specialist… and my dumbass OIC’s all around bitch on deployment.
I love animals. You abuse them? I curbstomp your stupid ass.
I curse. Even in front of my kids.
I let my kids curse, as long as they know the difference between dropping the “F” bomb at home and behaving like civilized human beings in public.
I let my kids play “M” rated games and watch “R” and “NC-17″ rated moves. They are mature enough to handle it, and will ask questions freely and openly.
I was born in what once was known as the USSR. I came to the US when I was eight with my parents.
I had both my tonsils and adenoids taken out without anesthesia. The wonders of socialized medicine.
I like to have long conversations with strippers. Most of them aren’t as stupid as most of you will believe. I find them fascinating as people.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be Spider Man. I spent a lot of time trying to climb walls.
I also wanted to be an astronaut, a psychiatrist, a lawyer, a stock broker and a porn star. I became a Soldier.
I am not to be pigeonholed. I’m fiscally conservative. I believe in a small federal government. I believe in fiscal responsibility. I loathe politicians who like imposing their religious and moral views on me via government force. I loathe politicians. Period. I believe gays should have the same rights as straight people. I believe no politician has the right to tell us whom to love or with whom we’re “authorized” to spend the rest of our lives. I believe people should read, drink, eat or otherwise ingest what they feel is right, as long as they are adults, make their own decisions, do not impose those decisions on children, and do not harm anyone else with their actions.
I love my boyfriend, my kids, my pets and my friends and family.
I loathe racism and have a visceral reaction to it.
The worst thing anyone can do to me is lie.
I have very strong reactions to many things, and I will vent those reactions on here.
I don’t blog for anyone else but myself. If you are offended, please feel free to leave and not come back.
