So, this is my About Me page! I'm excited.
Birthdate: October 12, 1979
Location: That would be the lovely city of Dallas in the lovely state of Texas. I know you're jealous.
Dwelling: I live by myself in a small but lovely apartment in Dallas. My apartment used to be the place where all the swingin' singles would live, but I live there because it's not in the ghetto and has a washer and dryer!
Job: I am a caption editor! Basically, I do closed captioning for the hearing impaired. That means I watch and caption everything from late seventies Match Games to Scrubs that will air the next day. Yeah, I know, it is pretty awesome.
Affiliation: I have a degree in journalism from the University of North Texas.
Attachments: There is a cast page for your enjoyment, but here is a quick list of those important to me:
My boyfriend, Josh, who I have been with since December 2005.
My mommy, who I talk to many times a day.
My dad, who is a generous asshole.
My brother, who is gay and richer than Bill Gates.
Various friends that I don't have many of because I've lost contact with them since they moved far, far away.
I picked this name, LasVegasLiz, not because of the actual location but because of what Las Vegas represents to me. I love going to Vegas. When my plane lands there or when my car inches into the city limits, I can't help but smile. It just makes me happy. There's something so wild and sophisticated about the city, yet so trashy and depressing at the same time. And yes, that's how I feel about myself most of the time!
Previously, I was also located here. There, I was a 21 year old dumbass that had no idea what was coming. I'm proud of those entries, I'm a little jealous of those entries, and I'm ashamed of those entries. I also resided here, when I lived in Austin in 2003. That was a learning experience and it's there for all to see! Yay.
It is important to know that I have had a deep and passionate love for Axl Rose and Guns N Roses since 1991. I've tried my hardest to get over it, but to no avail. I went to a GN'R concert in 2001 that just might have been the crowning acheivement of my lifetime. I also once stood in the front row of a Velvet Revolver concert where I got close and personal with most members of the band.
I am a writer. That's just who I am, and who I will always be. I love dogs. I love rock music and headbanging and driving fast and wearing Vixen nail polish and wearing Doc Martens. I have polycystic ovarian disease. I love Dr. Pepper, mexican food, cheesecake ice cream with peanut butter cups, and movie popcorn. I love rain. I love movies. I love commentary on DVDs. My mom once said I was an unsafe driver. My dad once said I drive by Braille. I love to gamble, although I'm not very good at it. I wear Obsession and I have been for years because I like it.
And other stuff.
