Even MORE information

I’m Raisin Girl.  My handle comes from a Tori Amos song, Cornflake Girl (Never was a Cornflake Girl, thought that was a good solution, hangin with the Raisin Girls…), which was inspired by a piece Alice Walker wrote on female genital mutilation.  Both Amos and Walker are huge inspirations to me.

A few things about me:

I love: my two beautiful children, talking too much, singing poorly, peaceful rebellion, Memphis, music music music, grits, romance, zombies, reading, writing, photography, sincerity, being spontaneous, laughing too loud, beards, street art, being irreverent, good beer, long emails, paisley patterns, romance, sweet tea, chosen family, hot weather, the smell of wet concrete, and individuality

I hate: cats, figs, insensitivity, gossip, the fear of commitment, bigotry, judgment, homophobia, dog slobber, frogs, full-fat milk, Vegas, incessant pen-clicking, being cold, narrow-mindedness, hatred, metal folding chairs, whiskey, following the rules, the rebel flag, ESPN, and sports in general

If there’s anything you else you want to know, ask via blog comment or any other medium in which we may be “friends”.  I really do love to talk about how fabulous I am.

This blog is a collection of lists and letters, rants and raves, pictures and quotes, and other things I find interesting, funny, or tragic.  Join in if you like, introduce yourself, give your two cents.  I’m even more interested in you than I am in myself.

    We recently set a new website online which could interest you. It’s called http://www.YourLastMusic.com.
    On this website you can create a list of songs you want to have played at your funeral.
    Than you have the choice to make it public or send it only to the ones who care about you.
    The site is still in beta phase. We would be happy if you could test the website and tell us what you think about.
    Thanks in advance.

    Oh no…I just subscribed to your blog before reading your “about” and have discovered that you hate cats and dog slobber. I am really going to have to rethink our “friendship” now ;P

      Hahaha! Well, if it makes you feel better, I dislike cats because I’m highly allergic. I love dogs, but smaller dogs. Big dogs slobber a lot and get on my nerves – my parents have two German Shepherds, and I try to love them but they are all smelly and like to touch me a lot. Lol.

      Thanks for subscribing, and for your thoughts on yesterday’s post! That’s something I hadn’t considered, but it is a very interesting – and likely – scenario. :/
