Race: White

why have I always pictured you as being black
Maybe because of how interested and inspired I am by the civil rights movement.  Nope, I am definitely white.  I probably have some black ancestry somewhere, though.  We're all a mix of races in reality, but I just happen to be overwhelmingly more white than anything else.

I have to wonder if the "heading to Thailand for all the right reasons" disclaimer was inspired by opebo. Tongue

Beautifully written biography, Torie - you've had - and have - an interesting life.
