Bloggers PhotoMy Bio
Hello and thank you for stopping by to check out my bio. I recently moved to Southern CA from beautiful Victor, CO-Population 450 Elevation 9696 and I'm lovin' CA. The weather is lovely and the people are divine for the most part.

My husband and I won a car on Let's Make a Deal.  If you'd like to see our it is...

I have been married to my wonderful husband, KJ, for 13 years now.  We have a great Siamese cat, Tiki (named after Tiki Barber-Retired Giants RB).  And, yes, I love football-Go Broncos!!!

I decided to type out my “official” bucket list.  Some of the items on the list are…

*Go skydiving
*Jog a mile without stopping
*Watch a live fight (boxing) in Vegas
*Perform a standup comedy act
*Go to Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
*Volunteer at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving
*Memorize the symbols of all elements on the periodic *Pay for a random person's groceries
*Learn to belly dance
*Play one $500 hand of blackjack
*Come up with my own personal theme song
*Jump into a pool in an evening gown and stilettos

I joined poetry soup because I love poetry and I also had a goal (on my list) to win at least 3rd place in a poetry contest.  Thanks to Paula Swanson, I was able to cross that one off with a 1st Place win in her Yard Sale Contest.  I decided that since the poetrysoup gang is so warmhearted, I wanted to hang out here for good :)

Hi guys!  First, thanks to everyone who entered my contest.  I really loved your poems and not to sound cliché, it really was hard to judge.  There were a handful I really wanted to place but I took into consideration recent comments from people that it is better to place less people, so I tried.  Also, I didn’t include HMS as I normally do as recent comments indicated that people sometimes get insulted by HMs, and I’d certainly never like to insult anyone. 

For this contest…I did give preference to those acts that could be considered either genius or criminal.  I did place some higher (that were great) even though they didn’t meet that criteria exactly. 

Again, thanks to everyone who entered…and I’ll be working hard on thinking up my next challenge for you!
