About Me


Keep reading

I’m C.

I write sometimes, when other stuff doesn’t get in the way. When I’m not writing I’m usually jobbing, parenting, schooling, or surfing the Internet for new things to be fascinated by.

I’m either hypoglycemic or half zombie. My parents figured this out when I was a toddler and they caught me staring straight at the sun with hugely dilated pupils. I may or may not have also been drooling at the time.

I may or may not sometimes drool now.

When I was young I vowed I wouldn’t ever get married, then this guy came along and he was all right with my drooling problem so I said OK. We were twenty years old at the time. That’s what you get for setting your aspirations Full Speed Ahead to Crazy Cat Lady Status: some jerk will come along and screw up your plans.

Our collision

I inadvertently met my husband through my first blog. He’s a zombie too, so it works out well between us.

Here’s what he thinks you should know about me:

Q: What makes your wife sad?

A: Piles, my piles [of random stuff]. Also, war movies based on true stories.

Q: What was your wife like as a child?

A: OCD, probably a bit bossy. But very cute.

Q: What makes you proud of your wife?

A: Her independence.

Q: How are you and your wife different?

A: I like breaking the rules.

Q: Where is your wife’s favorite place to go?

A: “Where’s the good food?  Where’s the good sh*t happenin’?  That’s where we’ll be, yo!”

Q: If your wife were a character, which one would she be?

A: Full Metal Bitch.

Peas in a Pod, Psychos of a Feather

Our path wound a bit, then we landed in Texas where we both now work in the software industry.

We recently made a human. Online he goes by J, and he’s pretty fantastic. He’s also a handful and a half, so he clearly takes after both of us.

Here we are with our tiny human.

These are our canine sidekicks, Molly and Gromit. She eats furniture and he’s afraid of mylar balloons, so don’t expect too much from them.

Hi hi

I’m an ISTJ and a first-born. Gromit The Dog is a first-born too, but he and I are nothing alike except for the drooling thing, I guess.

I’m actually kinda boring, but I try to hide that by doing cool stuff and trying to experience new things. I’ve been in two nationally televised TV commercials and two video games (winding up with an imdb page out of the deal!), I was once an honored guest in a Masonic hall (there were bagpipes!), and when I visited LA I ended up in an elevator with this guy (but he was an Internet sensation at the time, I swear!).

I have lived in Oklahoma, Illinois, Texas, California, Washington State, and France. I’m pretty content with life back here in Texas as long as it looks the other way when I have an occasional fling with California.

I’ve never lived in Louisiana, but I do always drown my pizza in Louisiana hot sauce. What does it meeeean?

Silly zombies, they think they can dance!

I’m obsessed with natural disasters and I used to dream of becoming a storm chaser. I’d still love to give it a shot sometime, so if you happened to wander upon my blog while you were looking for a less irritating crew member for your storm chaser TV show please sign me up and don’t tell my husband so that I can blame it on you.

Also, I lied to you with that “cat lady” bit. They make me sneeze. Cat ladies, that is.

Find me on twitter if you want more of my randomness.

  1. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.


    1. Grow up? Who said anything about growing up? 😉

      I’m 26 and most days I feel like an old lady. Maybe that’s why I’m so goofy in my blog.


      1. Well, turns out I’m older than you, so maybe growing up is overrated. I guess some of us never do. I still think you’re a great writer and I love your style. Very entertaining and honest.
