Homegrown Texan

Born and raised in Texas, I've found the home of my heart and soul in the Pacific Northwest. I love trees, cool weather, and rain. I'm a back to basics kind of gal just trying to raise my family and find a bit of time to slow down in this hectic life.

Since I have so many new WONDERFUL friends on LiveJournal I thought this would be fun!! I also would like to know my older LJ friends much better!!

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."

2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better ! If I already know you well, expect the questions may be a little more intimate! *

3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Well, I guess all's well that ends well.  I was quite peeved when [info]lovemonster posted about the National Pork Board going after a breastfeeding activist who was selling pro-breastfeeding shirts with a slant on a popular pork advertisement.  I wasn't really upset that they were trying to protect their slogan (although I think it's silly, because I think it can only help, and certainly can't hurt them).  What upset me was the manner in which they issued the cease and desist, including implying that using the phrase cast a negative tone on pork (how is breastfeeding negative???) and that the woman was promoting some kind of adult breastfeeding fetish (ok, that's how..but HTF did they draw that conclusion???).

Anyway, since I griped on a number of message boards about this, I feel I should also do my part to publicize the resolution.
