Hi! My name is Elizabeth. Lots of people call me Eli and that's okay, though I prefer eli. It looks cooler, especially in cursive.
I'm obsessed with dogs. It's okay. I know this about myself. I'm the crazy dog lady, and I'm okay with that. I think it's a healthy level of crazy. Of course, most people that are crazy think that.
We had a collie growing up. My parents got him when they found out they were having me so we were about the same age. He was my best friend. I had friends, but it always seemed like they moved away. He was always there. He died when I was 12. My sister and I cried. I don't know that we cried too much, but we were not allowed to have another dog. This, I think, is where the obsession comes from. We wanted another dog, but couldn't have one. Guess what we both have now. Dog(s). Guess what we spend a lot of time and energy on. Dog(s).
Today, I have Henri. He has his own 'About Henri' page so I won't repeat myself a bunch. I don't have any children yet, so, yes, he is my baby. We're a package deal. He's still young and active and so we spend a lot of time together, wearing him out, or at least down to a slightly more manageable level.
I like other things, too! I have many obsessions! I like to do many artsy fartsy things. I see things and I think, 'I can make that!' Sometimes I can. I like music. I like to play guitar, though I need to spend more time on it to really do it well. I like to read. I like to watch tv, especially cartoons. I like toys, especially those that I grew up on. I don't know. I like a lot of things. I don't have time to do them all.
If we all wore shirts that advertised who we were, and this was the only way that people could decide if they wanted to get to know you or not, mine would say, 'Everything you'd expect, everything you wouldn't.' I don't know how well it would work, but I think it's pretty accurate.
