It's just the picture that comes to mind. You are all petite ladies with long, straight blonde hair in my eyes. Unless your icon is of you, I just kind of think you all look alike. Like a giant Chaz army.

This is what you all look like


And I'm a redhead, so it's not even like I was thinking you all look like slightly different versions of me!

Also, everyone but Blue and Eddie are girls.
I'm (pleasantly) surprised that us redheads are so well represented here :D

About your dog(s): Well here at home I have a German Shepherd named Mammoth. He is my bestest buddy...we adopted him when I was 16 and he is 100 pounds of contradictions and drool. He has made it through a bout with oral melanoma, is completely blind, mostly deaf, and still rears up to put his paws on my shoulders when I get up in the mornings. My dad has a Catahoula Leopard dog named Bailey who is my running buddy and chaperone on all of my stupid adventures, as well as a Coton de Tulear named Liberty who supervises and criticizes everything I do!

Favorite book: The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
Favorite quote: Samo misljenje moze coveka spreciti da govori. (I think it translates to like "Only an opinion can keep someone from speaking.")

Favorite quote: Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says.

Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will...
