Rockin' the suburbs since 1976

Breaks the Name Game
7 September
I can be hard to figure out. I post sporadically. I like cupcakes, and Milton Glaser.

I never thought 5 years ago that I'd be married with a house and a dog, but here I am. My life is generally pretty normal, whatever that means, and I like it that way.

I've made many entries friends-only, but can always make new friends.

Before you consider friending me, you might want to read this first
