Hi! My name is Mindy. I am a nature lover, an atheist, and a dog owner. I exercise acerbic wit and dry humor, and despite being relatively laid back, I am quite good at using words to explain my position and can sound very harsh when people show no respect for my friends or I.
There is no telling what I will write about, here, because so many topics interest me, but I am sure atheism will be a main topic. I have been an atheist all my life, but some people I know do not even know that about me! My family does not approve, and I have few friends who really understand, yet I have a surprising support group of fellow atheists on twitter and that has somewhat led me here, so… Hello, all of you!
You do not have to be an atheist to read my blog or talk to me, but it helps to have an open mind. I will not be converted, so if that is your goal, let me tell you ahead of time: You are wasting your time! But it is yours, to waste.
I love animals, I expect them to be part of my postings, as well. Right now I just have my pit bull and one cat. My ferrets are in Tennessee with a friend, and I miss them desperately, but they are illegal pets here in California! My dog is a little over a year old and I found him and his brother and sisters in a garbage bag on the side of the road in Tennessee as newborns. Raising him has made me an advocate for the breed, but I will be the first to contend that these dogs are not for everyone and the key words to raising them right are exercise and socialization!
I can be a very strange cookie, but that side of me will probably be more expressed on twitter than here. Be warned if you follow me there: I curse like ten sailors and am extremely feisty!
