Kati is my name, asking questions is my game!
My motto: "Confusion is the mother of Wisdom." (Confusion tends to be promiscuous so the identity of Wisdom's father is open to speculation)
From foreign student in Kalamazoo (from Belgium via Hungary, Switzerland,France) to marrying young (to a Latvian via the UK) and disregarding my mother's frantic cables: "Can't you just live with him?" My mom was way ahead of her time and time proved that she knew best, but my two kids and now one grandkid are awesome, and so is my new partner of the last 29 years.
From sales clerk (at Steuben no less!) to fry cook, to cultural-social anthropologist/translator/teacher to writing blogs in the Northwest woods....
Like other Flysters I came to this site through reading the amazing posts following "Dear Prudence" on Slate. Yes, gossip is fascinating. It's actually the cornerstone of anthropology (even bones are gossips!), not to mention it helps keep abreast with our species' deepest concerns (Hey you! Stop laughing already!).
This blog is addressed and dedicated to all those who haven't stopped saying "why?" as they grew up, and even now refuse to take "Because!" for an answer
This blog will frequently start sentences with “But” as well as indulge in strange punctuation, occasional weird spelling and lots and lots of parentheses (Please be advised that any and all cussing will be in French).
