About Me

My name is Furf.  Obviously that is not my real name as no one in their right mind would choose that for the name of their child.  But no one except my family and co-workers call me by my real name, so we really don't need to go there, not now.  I have a set of amazing parents, and two awesome siblings that go hand in hand with my large and overwhelming extended family.  They are pretty awesome and provide tons of entertainment.  I have been lucky enough to find a man who not only loves me, but puts up with my nonsense and finds it (somewhat) endearing.  I have friends who make me laugh so hard I can't breathe and a job that I love.

I'm a bookworm from way back when although I have to admit I have been slacking on my reading.  I'm a video game fanatic and I can get pretty good at them.  Unless it's one of those games where all you do is run around with a gun in front of your face and then forget it, you're on your own those games make me want to vomit.

I don't drink coffee (seriously I think I've had 4 cups in my entire life and I didn't enjoy any of them) only tea.  Lately I've become a bit of a tea fanatic.  I consider it a mission in life to indulge in every type of tea possible.  To date, I haven't found a tea I don't like, although I have run in to a few I don't really care for, but they were still delicious.  Other things I like to incorporate into life are chocolate, wine and all things food.  After 10 days in Spain where I ate nothing but bread and french fries, I made it my mission to not be such a brat about food.  I now will try ALMOST anything that is set in front of me.  On my most recent trip overseas (Trinidad in 2008) I tried everything our hosts offered.  And it was amazing.

I am prone to migraines, bouts of anxiety, crying fits and getting car sick.  I'm one of those people who, in any given situation, be it a confrontation or wedding, will cry.  The migraines are (I think) genetic as my dad, brother sister and I all suffer from them, and they usually end up making me want to throw up and then hide in a dark closet.  The anxiety can be brought on by nothing or everything and I can usually talk myself down.  My car sickness is usually caused by three people.  My father, my brother or my boyfriend...aka 3 of the 4 most important men in my life.  FYI number 4 is my grandfather but I usually avoid driving with him.

There's much more to me, but I'm not going to give it all away in the About Me Post.  You're going to have to actually read my blog to find out more.
