What's one recipe you make really well that you would serve to guests?<br><br><br><br><b>Although I think it's nothing special, my mom is always asking me to come over and make hummus for her guests. Personally I think my vegan chili is pretty amazing- my stepdad upon tasting it said, "This is the leanest beef I've ever had!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"></b><br><br><br><br>
Are you a morning person or a night person?<br><br><br><br><b>NIGHT. It is almost impossible to make my body sleep when the sun is down.</b><br><br><br><br>
What was the worst day of your life?<br><br><br><br><b>Maybe the day I got arrested for shoplifting when I was 14. My mom transferred me to a different high school and cut me off from my best friend. Boo hoo!</b><br><br><br><br>

You do emergency relief work, right? How did you get into that?<br><br><br><br><b>Yes, I do relief, evacuation, preparedness, and rebuilding. Are you ready for a story? Haha. Well on August 30th of last year, against the better wishes of my parents and the news and radio, I emptied my savings account into my wallet and went up to Reunion Arena in Dallas, with a friend and by my own accord. I immediately turned into a different person, started barking orders, making nametags, and getting the donations organized. There were several thousand evacs, Red Cross and independent volunteers, people making donations, it was a madhouse. Later on the news, I saw the signs I made- "Womens' Clothing Size Medium...Baby Stuff, etc". It was neat!<br><br><br><br>
While I was working at Reunion, my godmother called and said, "My friend owns an apartment complex and has agreed to take in 100 people to stay in empty apartments. They've just been bussed over but they don't have food, clothes, toiletries, furniture, anything. Do you know where I can get all that?<br><br><br><br>
That was it for me. I left Reunion Arena as soon as things were under control and went immediately to the apartment complex, where I interviewed each family and then went to work spending my savings on immediate necessities for them, including taxi-ing them around town to look for lost relatives. I started an independant relief drive, and a huge mega-church came in to help me, that drive lasted about 3 weeks.<br><br><br><br>
After that, the opportunities just came to me on their own. Most of my "jobs" I have heard about from my dad- he knows a lot of people and spreads my name around a lot. FEMA heard about me a month after Katrina and I was hired on to do evacuation driving for Rita. I lived in rural Louisiana for a month in my FEMA evac van. When I got back from that, a church in Dallas asked if I would go on regular trips to Gulfport, Mississippi for relief at first and then rebuilding later. That is what I am focusing on right now. I'm also going to New Orleans this weekend for the one year anniversary of Katrina, but I'm just going with my best friend for fun.</b><br><br><br><br>
What do you like to eat for breakfast?<br><br><br><br><b>This will be a little less complicated. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> I only eat smoothies for breakfast, and if I don't have access to a blender, I eat lots and lots of fruit. My favorite smoothie is papaya, mango, blueberry, flax oil, and strawberry.</b>

<br><br><br>
Minimally. I'm pretty bad about losing things so I just have the jewelry in my piercings and my wedding ring. I LOVE my wedding ring! It was made during the Civil War and passed down through my husband's family. It's very simple- looks like two tiny gold strings twisted together and then soldered shut in a circle. It's easy to tell that it's very old and very handmade.

Are you a neat freak or a messy bessy.<br><br><br><br><b>I'm such a slob, it's disgusting. You'd think a couple of 16 year olds lived in our studio. My sister-in-law comes over and helps me clean twice a month.</b><br><br><br><br>
