* I worship snow. Don't say bad things about it 'cuz I'll curse you.
* I have two sons (J and N); they are my family; the fact that they're cats is irrelevant - they give me more than humans ever could.
* I miss my Mom beyond words; if you still have family, tell them you love them now - tomorrow will be too late.
* I don't believe in turning the other cheek; you seek me, you'll find me.
* I WILL judge you if you mistreat animals, children, terminally ill folks, the elderly, and suicidal people, or support or find excuses for anyone who does.
* I have a strong soft spot for the women and men in the armed forces.
* I don't mince my words or sugarcoat shit. Ever.
* I despise grandstanding and hypocrisy; they're traits of a weak spirit.
* I don't believe in second chances where common sense should govern.
