You know those "About Me" sections on blogs where people describe themselves with a lot of casual detail?
My name is Cindy and I love my cats, Jane Austen, and junk food! I'd give up chocolate, but I'm not a quitter!
Admitting to addictions to harmless products: a key component of the blogger biography. (Substitute Diet Coke, coffee, frozen yogurt, or gummi bears for chocolate and you will also be on target.)
I don't know how you get around this. Obviously no one (normal) is going to share their real heart and soul on a blog. So we all look like cheesy lamesters, but at least we're cheesy lamesters in good company, yes?
So hey, I am Ru. That's not my real name - in fact, a grand total of two people in my real life have ever called me that, but I don't really want to be googlable. I write stories on my blog about my friends and family, all of whom have also been renamed at this point. I love zombie movies and cupcakes. I'm a nerdy former sorority girl, ex-Senate intern, lawyer, and aspiring writer.
And while I know I should hate ignorance, unkindness, and arrogance above all, my biggest point of rage in this world is people who insist on saying, "Really?!" multiple times after I inform them of something.
