I am the mum of 3. Two daughters. Had a son also - he would have been 21 this year. Killed by hit and run driver when he was 9.
My youngest made this website for me since the anniversary of Daniel's death was recent - 7 April - and his 21st birthday also passed - 14 May. She wanted to make her mum happy. http://www.freewebs.com/jackandianto/index.htm
Have 1 cat - Yami (dark).
Love to cosplay, read, sew, surf the net, and attend Sci-Fi / Horror / Anime Conventions. Do SCA sometimes (medieval reinactment group).
I am a military brat, my father was stationed in the US and Germany (pretty much US ... Germany ... US ... Germany ... US with some time off ... Puerto Rico also, born there ... a darling blonde haired blue eyed Maria (not that anymore! hair changed when I was 4 - now auburn / hazel eyes that are mostly green). Changed my name also - dropped the 2nd a. My mum saw West Side Story right before she had me and named me Maria ... I really hate it when people sing the Maria songs to me when we meet! Never have watched West Side Story - has to do with my pride. May smack someone if they keep doing that.
I was very sad when my dad turned down a tour in London :(. I so love the accents ... first time I heard a Scottish one (was 13 watching the Bay City Rollers on American Bandstand). Fantasy of mine since then was to have a bloke, preferably cute of course, what I would consider attractive, show up at my door in a kilt, take me out for a film and dinner. Has not happened.
Now absolutely mad for Torchwood and Doctor Who - thanks Michi!!!! Eldest daughter introduced me to the shows.
The absolute loves of my life are John Barrowman, Gareth David-Lloyd, Godzilla, Johnny Depp, and Adam Ant - if it ever happened that we could be friendly for a night - I would go home very happy :). Won't happen, but I can dream. Meeting John Barrowman or Gareth David Lloyd would make me happy also! Will be attending Comic Con - so maybe!
Maybe Gojira if I ever get to Tokyo. Would enjoy seeing where that was filmed and believe there is a museum.
I write, have since I was a teenager. Would be nice to get published. But never really tried to - so perhaps would explain why I have nothing in print.
