…and maybe that’s why only about eight people have acknowledged my existance, even though I try to be a considerate, thoughtful poster on most occassions (had a scuffle in the Pit recently, but hey, it’s what it’s for, right?).
Anyway, I’m not bitchin’, just feelin’ kind of lonely.
My name is Anna Belle and I live on the KY/IN border. I’m thirty-something, :D, have one child (a beautiful daughter) and am in my last year of my long, part-time pursuit of my undergaduate degree. Hoorah! It’s almost over. I’m trying to be a respectable writer, but am kept so busy by parenting & school that I’ve found little time for submitting my work. Soon, I hope to have time. I plan on taking a year off before I pursue a graduate degree (hopefully an MFA). My plan is to have something to fall back on (teaching at a university, hopefully). I’m single and content that way. I’m worse than athiest; I am completely apathetic on the subject of spiritual enlightment.
I love literature and movies, am shamefully a big Law & Order fan. I miss Homicide: Life on the Streets.
I’ve been a fan of Cecil for fifteen! years. As a teen, I dwelt long hours on the Carnal Knowledge sections of the original Straight Dope books, where I learned about hamster stuffing (I’ve never tried and shudder at the thought) and that a coke douche is not birth control but can dissolve meat over a 24-48 hour period. Cool, eh?
I am pleased to meet all of you. I have found my experience here to be enlightening in so many ways, and have enjoyed the humor (especially Scylla’s blimp story and the 1920’s style death rays thread–too funny.) Thank you if you made it this far in my ramblings.
