Hurray. Or whatever.
Honestly? I hate these things. I can never think of good things to say. I read other people's and I'm all like, "Wow! That is so interesting!" and I go to write mine and I'm like, "Man, I suck butt."
I guess I could start with the basics.
I'm Stephanie Snowe.
Stephanie R. Snowe, if you want to be exact.
Which you might.
I was born on October 15th, 1975. So whatever day you read this, subtract that day from it and that's how old I am.
On March 21st, 1998 at the age of twenty-two, I became the mother of twins. If I ever doubted there was a God, I did not after I had them. Their names are Boy Child and Girl Child. They are, without a doubt, the absolute best people alive. They have enriched my life in ways I can't even begin to explain. They are also the most hilarious people to ever exist, ever, and therefore I write about them a lot. But don't think I'm a mommy blogger or anything because my kids shit does, in fact, stink and I say a lot of curse words.
The story of the beginning of their life is pretty weird and convoluted. You can read about it here, sort of and a little bit about the backstory is here. It's long and hurty and I don't like to get into it all that much and I guess that's why I've never written about the whole thing. It's really just a part of me now and not something I think about a whole lot. I've written more about it, but I don't get that much into it.
I also never say my kid's names.
I married Jason: He for Whom This Blog Is Named on July 12th, 2003. I call the blog what I do because I am constantly saying, "Jason. For the love of God." I'm usually rolling my eyes when I say this.
Jason is, among other things, my best friend, the best possible father I could ever hope Boy Child and Girl Child to have, and a really snappy dresser. He and I met when we both lived in North Carolina and we got married there too. We moved to Tennessee after we'd been married a little over a year. Jason is from Connecticut originally so it's been really interesting watching him adapt to the Southern way of life. For example:
Jason: "Do I need to buy a truck?"
Stephanie: "Jason. For the love of God".
We have a dog, her name is Ginger. She is the absolute shiznit.
I'm fat but I work out all the freaking time and I have really pretty green eyes and absolutely banging hair.
I love television, particularly stupid crap that I really shouldn't watching since I'm an adult. Like old reruns of "Beverly Hills 90210" and "The Hills" and "Engaged and Underage" and crap like that. I think TiVo is God's gift to the Earth. For reals.
I have a therapist who I call Big Jim. He's the absolute best therapist alive. I credit him with saving my life.
I'm still trying to figure out my place in this world and who I am supposed to be. I've been accused of being very honest in my writing, and that's true. I don't see any point in not being honest if you don't have anything to hide. Which I don't. Pretty much the only topic that I consider off-limits is my own sex-life. I just don't think anyone needs to know that. Also? I respect my husband and how very private he is. It took him a while to just get used to me having a blog and even now, he does not read it, ever. I'm kind of glad he doesn't and I can't really explain why.
Some of my favorite posts are here, here, and here. These are a pretty good representative of my life, my writing, and who I am.
I love email and try to respond to everyone, unless you are crazy. A little crazy is good. Wanting to stalk me is bad.
Email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh and my first book is coming out on February 3rd, 2009.
I'm pretty freaking stoked about that.
