A Getting To Know Me post...

Hi loves! I've noticed I have a whole lot of followers now, and I'm slowly but surely reading all your blogs and catching up on your stories.  I know if anyone were to find me now, it'd be a loooooot of backreading to do, so I thought I'd follow suit like so many others and post a bit of a bio blog.  I'm kinda stealing one of those survey email things and interjecting bandster bits... well without further ado:

Ang...I know where Ethan Hawke lives!! My aunt and I walked past him once on the street, she turned around and followed him and his kids into his house. So when you come to NYC, I'll take you to visit him! xoxo
