I feel a little odd introducing myself to the internet, but this is usually where newbies start, so...yes. Raised in Iowa, transplanted myself to Denver six years ago, have a cute six and a half year old, vote Democrat, dislike Obama, and I bake really awesome cookies. (And if you have health insurance, I'm single.) <--- this is awesome. Actually, a lot of these smileys are awesome. I just may have to make myself comfortable.
