There's not much to say about me in a Bio that anyone would be interested in reading!  I'm independent, antisocial to the extreme, and stubborn as a mule.  People irritate me to death to the point where the ideal job for me would be a park ranger in Barrow, Alaska.  The fewer people, the better!  I spend nearly all my free time playing online games, with the rest of my time divided between reading books (currently re-reading the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind for the 4th time), writing poetry (I have several published), doing genealogy research (traced my family back to 400 AD so far), or watching TV (crime/drama; Criminal Minds, NCIS, CSI, Law & Order SVU, etc.).

I love cats, horses, McDonald's french fries, Diet Mountain Dew, Sour Cream & Onion potation chips, peace & quiet, good movies, Gerard Butler, my laptop, New Balance sneakers, footie pajamas, Jeep Grand Cherokees, and 1969 Chevrolet Chevelles.

I can't stand people, liars, hypocrites, social networking, celebrities, reality TV, talk shows, extreme temperatures (hot or cold), coffee of any kind, poodles, snakes, crowds, dark colored soft drinks, chocolate (except white), racists of other races (seems there are more of those than there are racist Caucasians), politics, and other people's children.
