What should you know about BigKat? I'm married to a fabulous man that I refer to as TheDog, we have two children. Our daughter is XanBear and our son is TheBird. We are all addicted to reading. I'm so addicted I can't see print without reading it. Of course this means I have a two book a day habit. And because I can't get enough of the printed word I teach writing to K-8th graders and of course to my own children. My daughter, consequently is a published poet. My son isn't published--yet. The picture you see (Thanks Texas Wren)is of TheBird, XanBear and in the middle the newest addition to our family Ranger a 1 year old border collie mix that we adopted from the Humane Society.

I am sweet and a little bit naughty. I am one of the few clinically proven aphrodisiacs. Sometimes I can seem a little hard, but show warmth and I soon melt. What Flavour Are You?
We homeschool our children through a program run by the local school district. This program is also where I teach. I have a Ph.d. in political science from Vanderbilt University since my original career plans involved spending my life as an academic. I outgrew those plans and am now content to be a professional mother who teaches and runs a program dedicated to educating people about the environment. The program currently focuses on the life cycle of salmon.

I'm just registering books as they pass within reach of the computer. My goal is to register the entire collection as 1)that will give me a record someplace of everything I have or that has passed through my hands 2)I don't mind lending books from my permanant collection providing they come home again and 3) Just because it gets space in my permanant collection today doesn't say anything about its fate next week. My reading is dominated by Fantasy/Science Fiction and Mystery stories but I'll read anything except Horror. I also share the house with two cats (or do they share it with me?) I've never actually seen them reading but they like to sleep on books.
I do trade books on occassion and have been known to trade internationally. My resolution has been that a book cannot come into my house to stay without another book moving out. It hasn't helped me reduce the number of books in the house but at least I'm holding the line now!
|You scored as The Librarian. You're the Librarian! Once a wizard, now an Orang-utan (due to an unfortunate magical accident), you refuse to be turned back for a few reasons: In this form, it's easier to reach the shelves and hold more books; having

My philosophy is that if you've traded books with me or found one of my releases, that makes you a BC friend so I add you to my friend list. Of course, this could change if the list starts growing unweildy.
