I’m not a mystery. I like to write. I have definite opinions on things, and I try to be consistent at all times.  At times I use invective that would make the weaker sort soil their panties, but I do try to be polite to all visitors unless they really piss me off.

A few random facts about me courtesy of Facebook:

5. Do you get nervous before a doctor appointment ? Yes

6. What do you think of hot dogs?  Meh.

7. Do you give money or other things to panhandlers?  Only if they hold up cool signs or entertain me in some way.

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Coffee

9. Can you do push ups? Yes, but not recently due to shoulder surgery.

10. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?  My white gold and diamond heart pendant, which is one of very few things that doesn’t make me break out in rashes.

11. What is your favorite hobby?  Blogging

12. Do you have A. D. D ?   Mild

13. Do you wear glasses/contacts?   Nope

14. Middle name: Nickole

19.  Do you own slippers?  Yes, they’re pig slippers given to me by my friend Jess

20. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? No, they’re slippery and cold

21. Can you whistle? Yes.

22. Would you be a pirate? Only if I didn’t have to hack off a limb or poke out an eye to have a peg leg and an eye patch.  Oh, and no parrots. Not fond of birds.

25. Worst injury you’ve ever had?  Torn ACL, MCL and Meniscus in my right knee that required surgery and screws; torn labrum in my right shoulder that still hasn’t healed correctly, and I still don’t have full range of motion in that arm.

26. Do you have any tattoos? Nope

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.

Any questions?

    I will hit your FB page too, and send a friend request. I am “Frankie Cee” there. You may have seen my widget in the center column at TAH offering military designs in my Cafepress shop.

    I don’t know where you live, but you certainly have the Republican Party in FL pegged, as well as ACU and Al Cardenas. I live in FL and can tell you its worse than what you think. The FL GOP party is lead by RINOs and socialists. This article on Red State, which shows you are right.

    Mar 29, 2013 @ 12:24:08

    Need your help!

    Here is the Situation: There is a person who has the same Name as I, this person from NJ is being blogged as a phony by many people there is a Photo of him at his wedding in uniform with awards he did not earn (Stolen Valor) and there is another side to this, Paul Tillson from OR. here is the repercussions to Paul Tillson from Oregon, from the actions from Paul Tillson from New Jersey, I’ll start with a little about me, Paul Tillson for OR. I served in the United States Army from 1982 to 1990 with a break in service when I served in the Oregon Army National Guard, so I have one Honorable Discharge from the National Guard and two Honorable Discharges from the Regular Army the last was a medical discharge for injury sustained in the line of duty (No Purple heart) my Disability percentage allowed me to go to college under the Veterans administration’s Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation program, and I received my BS in MIS, when I graduated our economy was failing and Jobs are difficult to obtain, so I started my own IT company that is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and does On Line Computer Repair.

    So here is my dilemma: when a prospective client Google’s my name “Paul Tillson” their are many links to the Paul Tillson from NJ and unless had seen me because they would know he is not me, they could easily assume that this person in NJ is me, and I know that would not do business with that person. Because my Company can repair computers remotely, we can repair a computer anywhere as long as the computer can connect to the Internet (if it can’t then we instruct on how to connect).

    Solutions: Change my name? (I like my name), hire people to blog about my company and include my name, to make his name drop on his ranking? (can be expensive), I know I can add a photo of myself, and add my middle name to my website, create a drive for Facebook Likes on http://www.pcwebfix.com so my Facebook Friends can click the like button there.

    HI, Nicki! I would like to contact you about possibly posting about my dissertation on your site. I am trying to reach out to veterans for a study about marriage and alcohol. Is there a way that I can contact you? Thanks! CJ

      Hi, CJ – drop me an email at ialeksandrovnaATyahoo.com

      Offhand, it doesn’t exactly sound like something I usually deal with on this site, but drop an email anyway.

    Hello!! Thank you for your posts on Absolute Auto Sales! I purchased a 2007 yukon – financing fell through and they are holding $3000.00 deposit of mines and refusing to give me a refund. Please keep me updated on your situation.

      The final outcome is that he didn’t give me any kind of information. I had to research everything myself. I wound up getting rid of the piece of shit lemon he sold me 5 months after I bought it. Traded it in for a Jeep. Thank god. $5000 in repairs in five months. No thanks.

    Asiago and mushroom? That doesn’t sound strange, that sounds pretty awesome–especially if you accidentally spilled evenly over the surface sweet peppers, vidalia onions, finely chopped garlic and bacon. Or not.

    Your writing “voice” sounds familiar (albeit more conversational.) Have I read you?

      Now I’m hungry!!! OMG that sounds awesome!

      Not sure if you’ve read me. I used to write gun rights quite a bit more.
