Have you ever sat around in a group circle and realized that all conversation around you has ceased?  And then there is one person who tries to fill the silence with an awkward story or rather unfunny joke?  Which rarely elicits more than a one syllable laugh.  Yeah, that person is me.

So I figure that I might as well take my material to a more friendly venue.  So here I am!

Several things you should know:

  1. I visited my 7th continent in 2012.  And followed up with trips to India and the UK.  Next we are planning trips to HI and then to the Galapagos Islands.
  2. I’m married to my wonderful husband who puts up with me even when I whine and get upset about crazy things, like having my dirty clothes gone through piece by piece by customs agents in Washington DC.  He also has all 7 continents in one passport.  But then the passport expired.  And now he has no claim to fame.
  3. I have a dog named Kizzy and a new puppy named Kazoo.  We named her Kazoo because she sounds like a kazoo.  I also happen to know from experience that penguins make the same noises – if you need a real-life impression.
    Anyway, their social lives are better than mine.  They have someone who walks them and they ride the short bus to doggie daycare where they play with all of their friends and come home exhausted.  They also have someone who delivers fresh grass to our balcony every week.  None of these people are me.
  4. Pluto is a planet.  No matter what you may have heard.

    I was a Communications major too, with an emphasis on journalism. Shortly after graduation I figured out that there was no way I could be a reporter (I did some freelance work), but fell into editing for dental magazines, then medical magazines, and finally medical writing with the occasional editing work. I love to write. My dream is to write a book one day and maybe I will. I’ve started one about my experiences with my mom’s illness and death, I also have an idea for a fiction book. I have my blog, which has helped me to heal from my mom’s death. To me, it’s the most important writing I’ve ever done. ~Kathy

    • I think you would be great at writing a book! And since you have recorded your thoughts in blog form, I think it would be easy to refer to them for inspirations. But alas, life always gets in the way of time-consuming projects like books. (I was going to be the next great romance-novel writer – my guilty reading pleasure)

    Pluto was discovered in the town next to my hometown, destination of many, many school field trips as a child. The attempts to discredit it as a planet will never fly with me. 🙂
