Greetings, all you cute sisters out there. I hope
you feel your time checking out this page is well
Just to make sure we're on the same page here,
we're looking for a wonderful, exciting friendship
and love affair with an eternal companion, right?
So, let's get down to business:

Can we just agree on that right now?
I love cats. My dear old kitty had to be put down
in 2001. I miss her.
Aside from the dull stuff that dominates my life,
I like making cookies, brownies, and other
goodies, watching TV (I'm a news junkie and love
