A look at the masterminds behind this lil' site...
Psst! We could never have done with without very some cool writers. Want to learn more about our featured writers? Then click here.
What would we do without our party girl, Christine??? She's always up for a good time (hey, not in that way), but can also be a deep and introspective writer. Which makes for an interesting mix. Her tales of dating and poetry reveal a sensitive and emotional young woman, who is not afraid to share her deepest secrets. She is also partial to karaoke and sappy 80's love songs, although if you ask her she'll probably deny it.
Alias/Nom de Plume: C. Ho.
What's in My CD Player Right Now: "Veronica Mars" Original Soundtrack, Gnarls Barkley, Snow Patrol
What's on My TiVo Right Now: I don't have TiVo, but if I did, my list would include "Veronica Mars," "America's Next Top Model," "Degrassi: The Next Generation," and my new passion, "The Office."
Three Things I Can't Live Without: Writing implements, my big fat wallet, and The Weather Network.
Freakiest Fact: I don't know how to whistle. I've never watched E.T.. And my thumb nails are different sizes.
If I Were a Character on "Sex & The City," I'd Be: Miranda all the way.
Best Pick-up Line: I'm horrible at lines due to a lack of suaveness and keeping a straight face while repeating them, but I'd like to think that I would incorporate the word "wonky" in there somehow.
When People Think of This, I'm the First Person That Pops Up: Meat, alcohol, and bizarre phobias.
In Five Years I'll Be: Hopefully writing away, and still a Happygrrl.
What Inspires Me: Compassion, kindness, understanding (there's never enough of it), and a bottle of oaky red wine.

Michelle demonstrated her love for writing by publishing a very personal 'zine for 4 years, I Got Coffee Breath. It dealt with her loves, crushes and exes, and gave readers a snapshot of her life through her quirky yet insightful anecdotes. She is a self-proclaimed '70s "funkdafied chick" who rarely sports anything that wasn't previously worn. Yes, she is the consummate retro shopper. Michelle is known for her laughter - which usually precedes her - and is always ready to offer a smile. Michelle suffers from Ornithophobia, which she gets teased about a lot.

Celeb Crushes: Marlon Wayans and Cedric the Entertainer.
Guiltiest Pleasure: I unashamedly love Clueless and White Chicks.
