I’m ‘stina. I started this journal to keep up with friends that sort have been migrating around the internet since 1997. We all started at the official Buffy board--back when no one watched Buffy--and we’ve floated to a couple of sites and ended up here. I've picked up quite a number of new readers since I started this thing, so everyone sorta comes from everywhere.
Things that help make sense of my ramblings:
I’m also a health care geek. Have a Masters of Public Health. Most of my academic and all of my professional life has been dedicated to health care of some sort or another.
I have adorable dogs with dreadlocks down to the floor. Relampago was the older one; he was born on October 13, 1992 and died on August 20, 2008. Crianza was born on July 27, 2003 and died suddenly and sadly of lymphoma on January 5, 2011. Celosa is the current alpha female; she was born on December 27, 2008. And Fusilli is the baby. He was born on January 22, 2013. They are pulis, and this post can answer general questions about the breed in general and Relampago in particular.
My family has a ranch in central Texas, and I’ll post from time to time about our adventures there.
I read a lot, I watch a lot of movies. I don’t actually watch that much TV, but I do get hooked on the few shows that I do watch. I’m into the arts scene here in Houston on the boards of two organizations and helping out a lot for two others. I also give a lot of my time and money to Planned Parenthood.
I'm pretty tolerant of a lot, so it doesn't really matter that you have different views than me. I am also opinionated as hell so I may, er, challenge stuff.
NC-17? Not really, though at any given moment I could start talking about vibrators or blow jobs, so you've been warned.
That’s it, I think. I rant, I rave, I ramble. Read a few entries and you'll get the idea.
