Frequently Unasked Questions


REAL NAME: What is real? What is illusion? Who cares?

BIRTHDATE: November 8, 1971 (and yes…trust me…there IS life after 40…)


SEX: Sure. Why not? I have a few minutes.

GENDER: A boobed wonder

LIFE THEME IN A WORD: “Apocalypse”

SYMBOL: The silver apple is representative of a spiritual path I am walking with like-minded “sisters”. The wolf is, well, the wolf–learning, loyalty, and leadership. The three intertwined crescent moons I have borrowed from the heraldry of Diane de Poitiers as a symbol of all that is female.

STONES: Amethyst, amber, jade, citrine, moonstone, malachite

TOTEM ANIMALS: Dogs/wolves (physical) and rattlesnakes (metaphysical)

PATH: Second Discordian Reformed Church of Latter Day Gnostic Druids Twice Removed


ODD JOBS: Media maven, advocate and activist, court jester, thanatologist, web visionary, brain-to-pick at large, spirit dabbler

CAUSES CELEBRES: I’m giving what I can working for mental health awareness, elder health awareness, the American Diabetes Association (both of my parents are diabetics), the American Heart Association, breast cancer awareness, AIDS awareness, and incorporating all of these, the cause of health care. Oh, right…toss education and social reform in there, too, with a big dose of feminism.

HOBBIES: The odd and the strange, punk rock, things gothic, taphophilia, snakes, classical historical religious reconstruction, reading, cryptozoology, movies, gardening, lurking in shadowed places, and various arts and crafts related to occult practice…

PRIZED POSSESSION: The Buddha was right on this one. Attachment leads to suffering. We’re not unhappy because we don’t have fancy cars or cell phones or live-in concubines–we’re unhappy because we want these things. So I reply, “Prized possession? If I can possess it, it should not be prized. If I prize it, it cannot be possessed.” On the other hand, I could be full of it.

FAVORITE SPORTS/PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES: Snowboarding, dancing, skateboarding, hockey, soccer, basketball, and archaic weapons techniques

FAVORITE FOODS: Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Middle Eastern, buffalo wings, tea, apples, oatmeal, peanut butter

FAVORITE COLOR: Purple, red, and green

FAVORITE ARTIST: Gustav Mossa, Boris Viejo, James O’Barr, Charles Addams, Eric Bakke, Coop, any Dutch artists

DIRTY LITTLE SECRET: Ixnay. If I told you, it wouldn’t be my dirty little secret anymore, would it?

WORDS TO LIVE BY: “What doesn’t kill me will make me stronger. Or it may land me in court. It’s all good.”
