Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

A little more about me

I've resisted but I've never been good at bucking peer pressure, so here ya go!

1. Do you still have tonsils?
Yep, and I'm reminded of that fact at least once a year.

2. Would you bungee jump?
Absolutely not. I went to a water park once that has those near vertical slides. I was scared to DEATH to go down this thing, but did anyway. I was so terrified I almost passed out going down it. Once I got to the bottom, my bathing suit bottom was now my bathing suit top, and my top, where did that go?

3. If You Could Do Anything In The World For A Living What Would It Be?
Something that requires very, very little time and whose pay is inversely proportionate to the amount I time I spend working

4. How many tattoos do you have?
one, a homemade DK (for dead kennedy's) on my right upper arm. It really doesn't count though, most people assume it is pen on my arm. Red pen.

5. Your favorite fictional animal?
haha, a Liger

6. One person that never fails to make you laugh?

7. Do you consider yourself well organized?
I am anal and organized to the point of despair for everyone close to me. My organization needs a techo-tweak though, I write everything down on paper. You should see my's very organized but the notebook thing is almost embarrassing

8. Any Addictions?
I've actually been to chemical dependency treatment for fentanyl and benzodiazepines. Maybe some day I will elaborate more on that.

News? What the hell is news? I'm completely out of the loop on this one.

16. What is the best thing about your job?
I write for a living! haha, just kidding, I mean, I do write for a living, but it is technical writing so it really doesn't count. I draw for a living, too. It is extremely low key, no pressure, punch in, punch out, work 40 hours or 10 hours of overtime we don't care kind of job. It is great.

17. Have you ever gone to therapy?
um, ya, I was forced to and I hated every stinkin minute of it.

18. If you could have one super power what would it be?
