I'm just an average person living an average life. I eat, drink, work, sleep, repeat. What you will find here are the things that remind me that life is not always so average.

I live in a suburb of Washington, DC. I am a systems administrator/network engineer/whatever-they-want-me-to-be for a large government contracting company. I get to work in the city which is fantastic.

I love any kind of EDM as well as most rock, some pop and hiphop and r&b; (the latter three are a recent development thanks to XM Radio). I attend Northern Virginia Community College, usually one credit at a time. Otherwise I'd never sleep. I try to go out to Cubik every so often but again with the sleep.

I have a husband (Paul), a dog (Bonita), local family (Mom, Mama y Papa), and lots of distant family (some in Dallas, some in California, most in Spain). My husband and I are looking to move to Spain (moving BACK for him) come Summer/Fall of 2006.

Maybe I'm not so average after all...

One of the girls I work with sells Mary Kay cosmetics. I was helping
her with some IT stuff yesterday and while she was on the phone working
with tech support for her side of things, I looked through a catalog.
They had some AWESOME bronze stuff and I've been meaning to get some.
Bronzing lip gloss, bronzing EYESHADOW.. so I bought $50 worth of stuff.
She brought in the stuff to me today. Included were two compacts to put
my stuff into, some additional eyeshadows and two lipsticks - $66
additional for FREE!! I'm so excited. ;)
