i like to wear flip-flops all year long. pajamas are my best friend. and nothing beats a good pair of blue jeans. i'm not an elegant writer. but i can talk the ears off a brass monkey. i smile a lot. smiling is my favorite. and yes, one of my favorite movies is Elf. my favorite color may be pink. and i might like to sing in the shower, even though i can't carry a tune in a bucket. i can't help that i like some really bad 80's music, because i do. i like old hymns too, so i think that makes up for the bad 80's music.
