Don't ask, it popped in my head :P

This is easy, tell us a little about yourself that you don't mind sharing. We don't want to know what's in your closet.

~ My real name is Erica, I went by Rici in junior high and high school
~ I'm over 30
~ After 3 1/2 years I'm still not divorced <_<
~ I have 3 kids, my oldest is an identical mini-me and will be 10 in August
~ Second oldest turned 8 this year. She was born 2 1/2 months early and only weighed 3 pounds.
~ My youngest will be 7....:D wow, a few days after Christmas this year. He needs his arse beat. :P
~ I lost another baby, Gemini (my second alum here's name). She would've been 12 the same day Lexi turned 8. Both of them had the same complications, except Lexi lived. 3/13 is a birth and death day in this house.
~ I put myself back in college when I was getting ready to leave the jerk, talk about hard with the whole single mom, 3 small kids, full time student, only able to work part time, not fun, still isn't
~ I graduated last August with an Associates in Veterinary Technology. I take my national exam next month and I better pass, it cost $300.
~ Pets....I have a lot. Down to 4 cats now, lol, 2 dogs, snake, and some fish. Currently looking for sugar gliders for my awesome free iguana corner hut. And a tarantula for my son's spider fears
~ Not working right now....unemployment can kiss my arse since it's been 3 months and it's still being held in another state. So I'm stressed badly alot. My last job has me going to court to testify against the doctor, that should be just lovely.
~ The last month I've had a crash in the health department. We're waiting on blood tests in the next day or so, but both tests would be long term health issues with no cure. I don't know if I'll be able to work now that I got a degree besides being a vet receptionist. Depends on what it is and what kinds of meds I get. (that may be too personal for some of you, but many members on here already know anyhow).
~ I blame my obsession and love of wolves since I was little if I do have Lupus. (coincidentally, Rici has a child named Cameron Lupus too)
~ Yes, I'm a ginger and so are 2 of my kids. I can snap off when pushed hard enough. Leading to some of those long rants you've all seen me post in the announcements in the past.
~ My little family has started geocaching recently, and are always on the look-out for those evil muggles who may be spying. Though walking is not the best thing for me right now till I get on meds.

I have a friend who has Lupus. She is in her 60's now and takes a lot of meds. She worked for a long while and as far as I know she still does. I hope you are okay. My cousin had her own scare with possibly breast cancer but her biopsy came back benign(it is Lucy). Anyway, I may add more later. I have my own medical problems with PTSD from a year deployment to Afghanistan. I'm on disability now and trying to go to school. I have three kids: One when I was sixteen and gave him up for adoption to my aunt and uncle. One, a girl who is five and she lives in New Orleans and just had a new one about three weeks ago and he's wonderful!

- I'm nearly 22, and I like the fact that I'm pretty much exactly 10 years older than my character.
- I'm currently in college, looking to eventually begin work on a Masters and PhD in Graeco-Roman languages & literature.
- I have cat named Brody Kyo Destroyer Of Worlds, and a kitten on the way who will either be named Dobby The House Elf or Dalek Kaan.
- I'm moving into a new apartment in three days.
- Single, with no babies. Trying to keep it that way for as long as I can.
- Aside from geek stuff, I really like punk, hardcore, skramz, and real emo.
- I own the elder wand.

And to think I'm horrible to remember to take pills. I'm not a fan of being on meds, but I'm going to have to now. And congrats on the new baby!! I can no longer have anymore and I like it that way.

Yay for more animal professionals. I'm always willing to help with studying in that field. Since I took a nice long 10+ year break from school, I was able to focus better and get near straight A's for my kids to see and hopefully pick up off of. I tried right after high school....and college life got the better of me and I dropped out since I lost my scholarship.

Oh yeah and I'm a displaced Jersey girl and anyone in Indiana that knows me has seen my attitude. I think I snapped some ladies head off when she ran my credit and said I lived in Newark. She quickly shut up and went on reviewing the credit with no more mention of that false info. Yes, I watch Jersey Shore, I grew up on that beach and know it inside out. And I have nothing nice to say about those stupid Yanks on there. Or last season they added a noob who lives like 20 minutes from there to begin with and was playing the wanna be New Yorker :P *shuts up now*

- just got done watching the hellraiser movies, and think i wanna dress up as pinhead for halloween to scare the young kids :P
- i take meds and at times am loopy because of them...so if i make no sense when talking to you, that is why :P
- that is basically all about me :/

My brother graduated in 2005. Although he's going to be 24 because he started kindergarten late. Well, I always thought you were old or something! 23 isn't bad at all! *Is also Lexa, in case you forgot, since you do a lot :) *

Also, I stayed at my cousin in Hawaii has two kids and I just spent two weeks with them, so little kids are on my mind anyway. They just sound so annoying!

OH i know! I really should have written that my group and I pretended to kiss it. We went through the whole motion of dangling from the castle but covered our mouth with our hand before we kissed it. Oh trust me....we did our research :P

Oh yes. We had an awesome tour guide named Peter and he told us all about it. Though, I'm not really sure I would actually want to -kiss- a rock anyway. Common sense just screams that doing so wouldn't be a good idea...in my opinion at least

A secret...? Bahaha.

Real name is Tahirih. Apparently it's pronounced TO-he-ra, but I'd been pronouncing it ta-HEE-ree almost all my life. <_< Go figure. It's Persian (but I'm not Persian) and it means 'The Pure One,' (but I'm really anything but, as some of you who have gotten to talk to me OOC already know >:) ).

25.
Unmarried, no kids, living with boyfriend of 2(?) years. He thinks I'm a dork for being on this site, but I don't care. :D
Not planning to get married ever, not planning to have kids ever, but ya never know what the future holds sometimes.

We have a little handful in the form of our dog that we adopted from a shelter. Her real name's Peyton, but we've dubbed her all sorts of other things like Adora-pup, Peyton-butt, Sidebutt Honey, Honey-butt (she's got a big butt... :D), Puppen the First Queen of Puppenville, and Kicky McKickalot von Kickenstein von Kickenworth.

I'm full of potential... but too much of a slacker to really put any of it to good use. Plus a few other extenuating circumstances. :D

Oh lets see, where to begin . . .

- My name is Patricia but I'm called everything from Pate to Fat Pat, you get the picture, most of the lovely nicknames come from my family, which is rather large.

- I'm retired from the military, Navy to be exact.

- I have lived in San Diego, Belle Chasse, LA, and Andrews AFB, Maryland and never went out to sea except for 10 days, going in circles off the coast of San Diego on the USS Nimitz.

- Besides those places, when I was 16, I lived in Mexico for 3 years, loved that a lot. Even went to school in Mexico City but then went back to Hermosillo where my mom and dad lived.

- I have one son, who is 28 and he has one child and I love being a grandma!

- I have 3 ferrets and they are fun to watch, keep me on my toes

- I don't work and haven't since I left the Navy, retirement is wonderful, I also get disability from the VA so I don't ever have to work.

- I think next to Cheyenne Wolfhawk, I'm the oldest here but I'll catch her in August

- My sister thinks I'm silly to be doing this but I love HP and met my very dear friend, Aaliyah Franklin here. Can you believe she actually came to visit me from Germany, having only met on this site. She's a very wonderful person and I'm so glad to have met her in RL.

- Lucy Lindsay was my first character . . .

I guess that's about it for now, hasta luego!

Okay, so I will do this, but you can not laugh at me.

-My name is Elaine
-I am 50 years old
-I am married to a wonderful man, but they say the third times a charm. Course they also say three strikes and you are out.
-I have two of my own children and two step children.
-The oldest is 32 and the youngest is 20.
-I have 5 grandkids, and I too LOVE being a grandma. You think dads have it good, just wait for grandparenthood. Not only can you give them back, but you get to go home too!!
-I am a public high school teacher. I teach Mathematics and Computer Science. I know, Arithmancy came real easy for me.
-I love to travel. My husband and I have been on many car trips, and this summer we will be going to Hawaii. Next summer we will be hitting England, Ireland, and Scotland.
-I have no pets, as I am allergic.
-I am Celiac, which is an autoimmune disease. If I eat wheat, rye or barley, my intestines are eaten away by an acid that my body produces. IT is gross, and I did not discover that I had it until 4 years ago. I have been living with it all my life and didn't know. If you are ill and they can't figure it out, ask for a Celiac panel. It is just three blood tests that they run. It could help.
-I play at a variety of instruments including the harp, violin, viola, and several others. Right now it is the Ukulele. It is fun, but my fingers hurt from the strings.
-I am dyslexic. It was not discovered until I was an adult, and I have had to struggle with it. That is one of the reasons that I do not stay up late at night. It gets worse when I am tired. Being old means I can't stay up late too.

  • I grew up in Florida for 20 years
  • I moved to Louisiana to live with my birthmom April 14, 2010 (the day before my birthday)
  • I have FIVE brothers (25, 23, 19, 16 and 14) and one sister who wont talk to me because she thinks that I really am our sperm-donor. (LONG // confusing story)

  • I like to read just not too much.

  • I have ADHD...or as I like to call it ADOS (Attention Defficet Ohhh Shiny!!!)
  • I love, Love, LOVE theatre!!!! I can sing and act but I can't dance...
  • I am indeed obssesed with Harry Potter to the point that my family has told me to just not talk because HP is what will escape my lips (and now HO)
  • I am weird.
  • Usually I am the exact opposite of my character...I'm actually a very sweet girl who everyone wants to be around and I care about others more than myself
  • Although...Zelda is my alter ego. I have borderline multi personality disorder. Only difference is that I can control my other personality. Only one person got to witness Zelda in person, and I'm trying to keep it that way...

  • This is the first RPing website that I have ever been on
  • I signed up for HO because since I have been in LA I was either in the hospital or working and had yet to meet anyone in the area.
  • I hate going to the clubs and I am not a party person...I enjoy going to the bar and playing a game of pool with some bacardi in hand...
  • And Tamy, Hells and I are moving to Ireland in a couple years...we already have a few houses picked out...xD.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='xD' />
And...
Zelda Fitzgibbons and Stelleta O'Duffy are my only two character so far...
