Boy George, at least when I was really young. It took me awhile to figure out that she was a he. Though I realize now it was fitting. Me liking someone who was being themselves in the face who knows what. I am a bit embarrassed to say what I actually thought lyrics to Karma Chameleon actually were.

A dog, Tess. The world’s most expensive adorable lap warmer. I used to have cats, then I married a man who is crazy allergic to them. So now I stalk people’s cats on Instagram.
Learning how to say fuck it to my home town. Realizing I wasn’t going to let that place and what happened to me there define me. I realized later on that I should have tried to stay friends and keep in touch with the people who saw through my bullshit and were my friends anyway. However, I am not sure I could have ever made it if I had stayed there.

Learning how to write a semi complicated SQL query on my own.
I would spy on my daughter at school. She’s a tough nut to crack, and I would love to see what drives her when she’s not around us.
Being my friend.

I can count and say please & thank you in most of the European languages. I can say a bit more in Spanish. I used to be able to swear in Italian.
What is your all time favorite joke?
