Minneapolis, Minnesota
Bridging the gap between computers and pretty dresses.
Interests: Deborah. I like caves and crystals. I am a picky purse collector, art adorer, necklace hoarder. I like to play host and bake things of a vegan nature. I could say I am a crazy cat lady but I don't think there's anything crazy about loving cats. I love to travel and decorate my house, though I have to do it when money allows like the mere mortal I am. Dresses are my clothing of choice with things I make to match. Books are my Gods. Comics my Goddesses. Legos, female actions figures and unicorns. Getting ready to publish my first Young Adult Novel and My First Story Book. Welcome!

Two weeks ago on continuing the tours of Minnesota Wine, I went out to Next Chapter Winery in New Prague, MN. It was a gloomy day so it was nice to sit inside and talk to the bartender about the winery. They run on solar power. One of the owners... Continue reading

I have very mixed feelings about something like Wizard World. I am a big supporter of all geek things because I know without the big movies and shows there wouldn't be more geeky things. But I am not a big supporter of paying to meet celebrities. I simply feel that... Continue reading
