Here From The Fearful Adventurer?


You might be here because you were browsing a blog called The Fearful Adventurer, in which Torre DeRoche (fellow ball grower!) referred to me as an  irreverent, offbeat, and unexpectedly hilarious therapist and bereavement counselor. I guess that’s what happens when you write a story about your vagina, and enter said story in her writing competition.

If you think that’s weird,  how weird is Torre DeRoche for selecting my vagina-themed essay as 1 of 5 “notable” entries in a competition against 72 non-vagina related essays? SHE’S the wacky one, not me! ;)


I’m at work today, which means I’m doing the serious work of NOT being irreverant, offbeat, or vagina-focused as I support grieving families. But I snuck out for sec, just to welcome any new visitors and give you links to some of my favorite articles from the archives:

    I’ve just spent the last two hours reading various posts on your blog. I’m so in love with you, your voice, your outlook. And then I discovered that you’re an INFP, like me, and now I’m wondering if I’m simply falling in love with my own reflection? Oh well… I’m off to read more.

      Yay, Team INFP! Speaking of being in love with your own reflection, Srini told me about your competition a while back but I wasn’t sure if I’d join because I was so busy at the time. But then I heard your interview on Blogcast FM, loved your personality a ton, found your pro-balls site, and fell in love with you some more. Looking forward to digging into your archives (and the BOOK!!).
