I was born in southwest Ohio, raised in northeast Texas, attended high school and college in northwest Ohio, and now live in northeast Illinois. Lost? Join the club.
My parents gave me a name that means "Peaceful Warrior". I don't think they realized this contridiction at the time; Mom just wanted my initials to match Dad's.
I have a younger brother born exactly three years after me to the day, but we are polar opposites. More importantly he co-created two beautiful children for me to spoil rotten.
About the queer thing. First of all, I am. Secondly, get over it. Every single person on this planet is different from everyone else. No two people, not even twins, have the exact same appearance, experiences, or perspective. The sooner you realize you're not the center of the universe, the happier you'll be. Thirdly, this does not mean I'm looking for a partner. I've had a couple. They were great. I might yet have another, but if I don't, it's all good. "Happily Ever After" is a lie created to occupy the masses with thoughts of romance, so those in control can manipulate reality to their whim. There are tons of people in my life who love me. I don't feel lonely, and I feel complete without someone else to "complete me".
Obviously I like to rant. Anything else ya' wanna know about me, check out my interests list, read my journal, or just ask me. "Anonymous" readers are currently allowed to post comments to my journal entries, but please note, all unidentified posts are subject to deletion. I promise I won't bite until you beg for it.
