I am NOT a violinist, an ice skater, or a cocktail. Born and raised in Montana. Good with animals and men. I never appreciated my mom when I was a kid, but am becoming just like her. Sorry, mom. I am recognized for having one of the rudest potty mouths around on both a regional and national level, and for being extremely loud. Especially when I drink. I like vodka and small-batch bourbon straight up, with an occasional foray into single-malt scotch. Contributions in kind eagerly accepted.
