February 14, 2006This lady comes packed with Gummy Beary juice and the bounce to prove it! Beware pervs for ladies in martial arts, she's got more toned shoulders than you!
February 4, 2006I couldnt imagine a better sense of patience and care for one's friends.....
A woman who told me to return to a party at 3 in the morning as she began to disassemble an entire stage setup, assuming that i was going to actually leave her to do it herself.
A woman whose compassion for her loved ones show as regularly and as clearly in life as the colors red and gold in her costume when she performs.
If ever i had a big sister to watch out for me, it was and continues to be more than ever, Anna Maltese.
From silly Tomfoolery to Wushu Kick assery-
My world has a bit more personality and comfort knowing that Anna is around.

First was my uncle, who I hung out with every day after school when I was a kid. Then my grandfather, who together with my grandmother raised me as his own daughter. (This is the most excruciating loss, and that is all I can say on the subject.)
Now it's my estranged father - who I've not seen for twenty years.
I've usually told people who as... read more

'Course, with all that spare time I've got, it's only taken a month or three to finally get around to doing this. As luck would have it, the cold bug got ahold of me and has forced me to take the weekend off. So, here goes. Enjoy, my friends!Sun, October 8, 2006 - 2:13 PM permalink - 5 comments
