I'm a sassy Southern Lady with the added bonus of sarcasm and a gun hilarity!

The last ten years have been out of this world and many of you have had a part of it. The first time I met an internet friend outside of the internet. The mail I received from some of you that always made my day. The late night chats on msn. The phone calls at weird hours because I had a bad experience I had to talk through. Or the phone calls on a long trip because I was tired and couldn't stay awake while driving. The first time I truly started to fall for someone special. The many, many crazy conversations that entertained, encouraged, and sustained me through a myriad of insane situations, from college finals to moving to Asia out of the blue.
