This is the original Miss C., at least as far as our tier on the family tree is concerned. She also happens to be my soul mate. She's like the sister I always had... who lived somewhere between and eight hour drive and an eight hour flight away. She's my partner in crime, comrade in insanity, and purveyor of all things awesome. As of today, this planet has been graced with her presence for 25 years.
We will not touch upon how weird it is to me that the main character in my childhood is now a quarter of a century old. That would be selfish.
Ana and I have brought madness, soundtracks, an utter absence of logic, and high-quality, type-written, pre-pubescent smut to most of the United States and parts of South America, including one median, one balcony, one castle, and one hovel. We're just that awesome.
Well, Ana is that awesome. I mostly try to emulate her.
Happy and blessed birthday to my oldest and bestest friend!
