Thought it might be time, after all these entries, to put together a cast page. Besides, I'm having trouble keeping track of the pseuds.
Kaetchen: moi. For the German-impaired out there, it means kitten. This was a nickname from Tall Guy. 29, living in Northern California, working for a big university. Knitter, jewelry maker, former self-employed caterer and personal chef. Art history buff. Fading skills in German and Japanese. Only child. Female tech geek.
Art Teacher: Friends since high school. Gnostic scholar. Teaches art to high schoolers. Lives in an incredible house on the edge of a cliff. Gay. Makes me think and laugh and learn new yoga. The most loving human I've ever known.
Mom and Dad: Legally separated but not divorced. Live about two hours apart. Still hang out together frequently. Still fight like mofos.
Miss Beek: Bestest of bestest girlfriends. We've known each other since college. Half Pakinistani, half honky. Most accepting born-again Christian of all time.
Cec: Miss Beek's roommate, a bright and difficult friend. On-again-off-again with boyfriend Asshole Bartender. Grad student in school counseling.
Whoolie: Friends since junior year of high school. Poet. Frighteningly smart. Writes and designs advertising for a financial firm.
Momma Guerin: Friends since college. Mother of Siana, partner to Trouble. Got knocked up in Belize. Dated Steve (see below) for about three years. Bi.
Siana: Momma Guerin's new daughter. Born June 2003.
Steve: Positively the best guy friend you could ever have. Sandy blond, very good looking. Mechanic. Dated Momma Guerin until Momma went bi. Now dating Ally.
Ally: Steve's girl. Fucking gorgeous and a rack that we all envy. Comes across as ditzy but don't let that fool you - it's an act. Beautiful, funny and insightful.
Dante: Our political activist, works for the Living Wage Campaign in town. Addicted to horseback riding. Also dated Steve for a while. Now dating Red Steve.
Red Steve: Dante's guy. Works for one of the local unions. Somewhat unknown, but seems good so far.
Beautiful: One of Whoolie's best friends, fantastic-looking and fucked-up woman. Engaged to Steve B. Can be a great friend or a raving bitch depending on the day.
Steve B.: I love this guy. Beautiful's fiancee. Amazingly sweet and good looking - if they ever break up, I'm keeping *him*. Gives excellent advice to everyone but himself. Works like a dog to support Beautiful.
Miss A: Engaged to Fish Guy. Close friends with Whoolie and Beautiful. Born and raised in Hong Kong. Loves to party, but can also be insightful. Makes me laaaaugh.
Fish Guy: Engaged to Miss A. Dated Miss Beek a good while back. Has two distinct personalities: one's fun and sweet, the other is bitchy like a woman. Don't piss him off.
Tall Guy: My college boyfriend. 6'7" and about 240, most of which is muscle. Yes, yum. Now has an M.A. in Linguistics from UCLA. Speaks English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, some Japanese, some Dutch and some Norwegian. Tutors professionally and is adjunct faculty at our alma mater. All's forgiven now; he lives locally.
Nom de Plume: Long-distance friend. I wanted more; he's not ready. Bright, funny, big hearted. Geeky in the right way.
J: the ex that matters. First real love since high school. Japanese-American, Nisei generation. Runs the cafe part of a local junior college's culinary program. Photographer. Anti-social to an extreme degree. Initial breakup caused by his cheating with an ex. Final breakup because he has the emotional learning curve of a guppy. Our done date was May 2003.
T: The ex J cheated with. Maybe the only person on earth I'd cheerfully beat into a pulp. Has a 16 year-old daughter; her presence has kept me from really being a bitch sometimes.
