Re: A new Member! :)

Welcome! I remember one time in college we were two months into the semester before I realized I was the only female in an engineering class I was taking (and only because it was pointed out to me)! I guess I was fortunate that my environment was such that I did not feel excluded. Or maybe I was so ...

Re: What major life experience changed you?

Probably about 12 or 13. Yeah, by that age you question stuff around you more than you blindly believe. For me, I'd say having kids. Changed my plans, my goals, my priorities.

Re: What's your favorite national anthem?

I don't like this question, so I'll substitute my own and answer that.

Re: have you had lobster?

First I was picky, and I didn't want lobster. Then I learned to love shrimp, realized I still hate crab, and I never went back. I've never had lobster. Is it like gigantic crawfish? I think lobster is closer to shrimp than crab in consistency, and different from both in flavor. I don't know that I'...
