um...Hi ...it's me
I don't even know if you can see that up there. That's MapLoco, which my friend from 360 rippa introduced me to. It's not like the BuddyMap some of you signed on the bottom to let me know you read me, this one let's me know who has been reading no matter what.
Here is what it said today.

I pretty much know that Hot Springs, SD is my aunt because I know she reads and for some reason it pops up Hot Springs. (Hi aunty)
I know my boy Jase pops up as being in Custer, SD. I don't know why Jase, but it does. I can figure that somewhere in Texas is a high school friend Emily a/k/a Baby because she told me she reads but she is too "bucky" to comment. Just teasing baby. nobody put's Baby in the corner.
Germany without a town I figure is Sarah, the most wonderful, beautiful 25 year old bitch on Earth who I would give my kidney to if it was worth 2 euros.
Hobbs, NM is Josie, who turned into a little blogging mistress herself.
Seattle is Lauri, the only Red sox fan I love besides Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Jimmy Fallon.
Miami is Lionel, the coolest cat on Earth....whassup Sucka?
Minnesota is usually my brother if the illiterate fool can find his way here. And sometimes it is Jaida my little sister who is finally done being a teenager but still too young to drink...haha. Happy birthday woman!
Tehran, Iran is my dear friend Cyrus whom I have known for quite a while....and sometimes it is my step-dad Behshid.
Oh...and Angie up in the northwest, I see you sometimes...Hi!
Anyways, other than that I don't really know who else reads. On Multiply it is wonderful because you can see everyone who visits.
Not that I am a page hit whore or anything. Nor do I care about comments because if I did i probably wouldn't even blog here and would strictly stay at Multiply.
I started this blog almost a year ago for the readers of my column to get to know me on a more personal level, and some of them know me more than that but still want to read me....like my crazy family.
Tomorrow will be a year since I started my column. My editor picked one of my most defiant, controversial entries to start me off with a bang and piss off bible thumpers and science guys. I didn't mean to piss anyone off...um...ok I did but it was only because I get pissed sometimes.
Sometimes I want to be more of the real me in my column, then I think maybe I should write more about issues affecting Indian country today, then I think but sometimes I want people to know more about life here, for real.
I am not perfect, nor am I even a perfectionist. I am not full blood or a saint. I am overweight (not for long) and need an extreme make-over.
I like to laugh, have fun, have a beer, watch sports and romantic comedies, cook, cuss, and care.
I have 4 bad ass kids who are my heart and life, one fat cat and I am for real.
sometimes I can show people who read the column that I DO care about issues that face our people, and sometimes I can just show them me...for who I am.
Thanks for reading, even after a year.
