Bad words will be spoken here. Not right now. But if you read my blog (please do!) you are likely to see the occasional swear word or obscenity. I don't want you to be surprised. But I do use the word "asshole" on the front page, so it really shouldn't be a surprise. I'm a forty-ish, middle-class suburban Mom. I've been married for two decades to the same Russian man (though he has an identical twin back in Russia so I hope it's been the same man all this time). I speak Russian fluently though I am not Russian. It's a long story. I like to describe myself as "delightfully eccentric". No one else has ever described me that way, so that may just be wishful thinking on my part. Things I do not like in no particular order-- clowns, mean people and aliens (the extraterrestrial kind; I'm married to the other kind). I love humor and word-play and absurdity. I've been described as "endearingly wacko" and I'm not even offended. That phrase should probably go on my tombstone. Except I want to be cremated so I probably won't have a tombstone. You know what I mean though.
