Raised primarily by my mother and grandmother, with appearances by my father. My mom read me Shakespeare and my dad read me comics - which explains how I became me. Now I'm a grad student and a teacher. I'm also madly obsessed with pugs, Mini Coopers, lip gloss, heels, documentaries, and penguins.
I also have some health issues, most notably lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and ulcerative colitis.
