Only in San Francisco…

…the most unique place on earth !!

born & raised

Hi! I was born and raised in San Francisco [the Sunset district, specifically]. One of the last true San Francisco Natives, in fact I’m third generation on both sides of my family. I went through hell in the Catholic School system [kindergarden through high school], lucky me. Yes, I’m a bit of a whack job. I’ve never left the Bay Area other than to travel, other than that, I’ve lived in SF, Daly City, San Bruno, back to SF, then way the f*ck up to Santa Rosa, back to SF, and now in Marin. I’ll be back to SF soon enough though. I’ll probably never live anywhere else unless some wonderful man sweeps me off my feet and convinces me I’ll be better off with him than my beloved City.

  • My best feature: my brown eyes.
  • I am very observant. Almost too observant sometimes. I notice things I wish I hadn’t.
  • My apartment is messy 70% of the time; clean 20% of the time and somewhere in between 10% of the time.
  • I believe the mistakes I’ve made have given me great character.
  • I love doing things for people… so much so that it drives me crazy sometimes.
  • When I was a kid, I remember panicking when I lost my mom in a department store.
  • I’d do the same thing when I’d lose my daughter in a department store.
  • I never got in trouble in school.
  • I wore glasses and had curly hair in grammar school and refused to get braces because I just knew I’d be the BIGGEST dork in school, then!
  • I’ve been to Dallas, Austin, Denver, Las Vegas, Utah, Chile, all over California, Washington D.C. drove through North and South Carolina, Chattanooga, GA, a few cities in Florida, Vancouver, Canada, and Seattle a few times.
  • I would like to go to Italy, France, Greece, Hawaii, Australia, Thailand, Mexico, or back to Canada, would be my first choices… after I conquer those, I’d be up for anywhere else.
  • I’m very quiet at party settings, but get me one-on-one and I just won’t shut up.
  • I hate eggplant.
  • I’ve only tried to straighten my hair three times in all my 36 years.
  • I have psoriasis. I’ve had it about 9 years now. The doctors just tell me it’s from stress.
  • I have a few scars, my parents rushed me to the hospital for the scar on my left eyebrow from a coffee table corner, a scar on my left knee from falling at one of my mom’s friend’s houses and landed on one of those fake red rocks, my dad rushed me when I fell down some stairs at his friends house and the nose piece of my glasses when into my forehead (he thought it was my brain gushing out), when he got into a fender bender and I slide to the floor of his huge E l Dorado car, hours later my arm hurt so bad we had to leave in the middle of a movie to go wait at general hospital for four hours to get a brace on my left arm for a fractured wrist. (What’s up with all the left side?)
  • I love to dance to 70’s and 80’s pop.
  • It takes me a long time to make a decision and once I’ve made it, I still doubt it.
  • When I was a kid, I took a week of tap dance lessons, an hour of ice skating lessons, six months of piano, one day of ballet, and the first time I went to take swimming lessons at age 13, I peed in my pants on the way to the locker room.
  • I wouldn’t say I have an OCD, but I do check the stove before I leave the house. Sometimes when I get to the car, I may have to run back in the house to check. Sometimes I check twice because I’ve forgotten that I checked but then realized once I’ve checked that I had already checked the first time.
  • I spend way too much time on chat.
  • I’ve had two major surgeries, a cesarean section and gall bladder.
  • When I was about 9, I was walking on the beach with some friends; a wave came, knocked me down,and stole my brand new tennis shoes. I was so scared that my mom was going to be mad I didn’t even care how wet I was.
