I am a lesbian. There--I said it. Sometimes I think I might be bisexual, but I'm pretty sure that I'm just a lesbian. I have been wanting to share this with you guys for years, but I didn't (out of fear). I'm still me, but if you have a prob... Read more

After writing my last blog, several Sparkers got the impression that I got a raise at work, and that's not true...I am a federal employee, and was sent home the day of the government shutdown, and was worried that I wouldn't be paid for that day... Read more
