A warm welcome to new followers of my blog. Glad to have you here.
Notice: I’m outspoken, blunt at times, affable most of the time (but do not suffer fools), and am not Christian (a lot of my family/friends are, though).
My most potent weapon are my words and my acid tongue when I get riled over something—Paul can attest to that. He calls it verbal (or written) napalm. I also curse at times and, as a typical Sagittarian sun sign (with a Virgo rising and a Gemini moon), it can be an interesting and oft-confusing ride at times. I often open my mouth (or type things out) without thinking that I might inadvertently offend someone.
One rule I have that will not bend is that this is my blog, and thus is my virtual home. This means I say what I want, post what I want, and do not ask for nor require your approval to share unvarnished, raw thoughts or posts here. If you start problems or attack other commenters here, I will delete your comments and you. So keep things nice and polite. Instead of getting butthurt or stirring up shit with me, it’s best to ignore my posts for a while, scroll on by, or unfriend me if you’re bothered over something I post. I am who I am and, at 49, I’m not changing who I am to avoid making you feel uncomfortable
Here’s what you need to know: I’m an ex-Army brat, a professional writer and editor (17 years as of this month), pagan (for 30 years), pro-choice, pro-gay marriage (I have a gay brother and numerous gay friends who are like family to me), independent liberal (and a proud American!), not big on guns (though if you want ’em, I don’t want to take ’em away, unless you shouldn’t have them for obvious reasons), love swords/daggers/katana/sharp gadgets, intrigued by Samurai, a Japanophile, into Eastern philosophy/social psychology (I minored in philosophy and majored in communication & psychology in college), curous about what causes abnormal behavior (esp. sociopaths/psychopaths), a nocturnal soul, and a paranormal investigator (for 9 years).
Since I’m a professional copy editor, I do get wigged out over misused apostrophes and misuses of your/you’re or there/their, etc. Take it with a grain of salt, though. We all make mistakes; in fact, I make them frequently! Nobody is perfect, after all. ;-)
If you message or e-mail me, I answer as I can. When I’m working or involved in creative projects, I do not answer personal messages or texts until I’m ready. Unless you pay to retain me 24/7, you will have to learn patience *grin* Unless it’s bleeding or on fire, or if I’m otherwise engaged, ya gotta wait.
There’s more, but that’ll give you an idea of who I am and what you should expect. That way if you can’t handle who I am, you can run for the hills now! *snicker* Otherwise, I hope you decide to stay so we can have fun and laughs together.
P.S.—I also know I’m verbose *shrugs*
