Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Me, in Ten Seconds*

I was born in 1969, on the cusp betwixt Sagittarius and Scorpio. Ye shall know me by my confusing accent, like everything else about me, a bit of this, a bit of that. I am a proud Newfoundlander (please do not call me a Newfie), but am dug deep into Arkansas red dirt. I met my love on a Liz Phair BBS.** My father was a poet. My mother is a lawyer. My eyes are green. I like a nice syrah. I am willful, intense, self-absorbed, an incorrigible smartypants.

But I will make you love me, supposing it kills us both.

*ten seconds in my Newfoundland accent; ten minutes in mid-southern drawl.

**He would tell you I am "a mess". Also something about a "tiger" and a "tail."

blogme2007 rude of me not to mention the source of this meme: the legendary Mochamomma

Whew, almost slipped on the "Newfie" comment. So, what kind of accent DO you get when you cross that and a mid-southern drawl? The publics can't wait to find out!

Excellent! I feel like I know so much already. I am also composing one of these but my crazy perfectionist tendencies are getting in the way. Now that there is the story of my life.

Born in 1968. And also ex-Canadian but from the other side of the country. Actually, originally from South Africa but that's a whole -nother story. Just found you via Finslippy, so hello! I'll be reading. - Sue at nobaddays (

My speech will sound thus: Pardon, but you look like a green-eyed smartypants tiger I've been looking for.

Then, you will love me. Yes. It will kill.

I love Liz Phair and a nice syrah too! I just heard you comment in the "It's Your Passion, Not Size, That Matters" and really like your ideas about not having folks tromp through our "breakables" on our web sites.
