The ABCs


My Facebook friend, Nate Hanley, posted this gem on his page the other night and because I love shit like this, I couldn’t resist answering it myself. But as I was about to add it to my Facebook author page, I thought to myself: this would make a great blog post. And since I haven’t been blogging lately as much as I would like, I’m doing just that – posting it to my blog. So check out my ABCs and then if you’re feeling super generous and chatty, share your own.

    • Juana, fellow Taureans unite! in a nutshell, you’re a baby with some babies…who aren’t letting you sleep, or put on underwear 🙂 but you love them anyway, your partner is a pain in the ass (I can SO relate on that one), you love to dance, you love to eat, you love to drink. We could totally hang. xx

      • Wow! You get me so completely from just one short post.

        Fellow Taureans unite! xo.


        I found a kindred spirit. Blogging is so nice this way.
