I am pretty detail-oriented so I have a long list of ways I could and have answered this question. I used to call myself a mutt because I am the product of 2 generations of military men who've found their wives overseas (Belgium during WWII and Japan during Vietnam). Part of my family has been in the U.S. since before it was the U.S. I could change the face of the Daughters of the American Revolution. My parents chose my name to reflect my English, Belgian and Japanese heritage. As I said, I'm detail-oriented, and now that I've started writing, I can't stop. You've probably stopped reading by now, especially since you now have to turn your head to read this. People say I'm hard to get to know - maybe it's because I make them work too hard. Actually, I think it's kind of funny. Hee hee.
