Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Married with 4 chihuahuas and 2 cats - living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I love Cherry Coke and Chinese food, good books and scary movies!
What other interests or hobbies do you have (other than Eliters of course)?
I love watching horror flicks, waiting for Shutter Island to come out, it looks good. I like to draw too, mostly Disney stuff.
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
A group of us from pogo always played spades in the wild blue yonder, which is where SpadP holds their tournaments. I joined September 2005.
How did you pick your Eliters' Name - does it have any special significance?
It was already my pogo ID. Before hurricane Katrina claimed them all, I collected angels - that is where my ID came from.
Tell us something unique or interesting about yourself that we are unlikely to know
I recently went to Petsmart Academy in New Orleans for a month to learn how to groom dogs. It's hard to believe the economy is in a downfall when you see all the money people spend on pet grooming.
What makes Eliters special?
Everyone in Eliters is what makes it special.
What games do you play? Are there any other games you would like to try?
SpadP, PoolP, GinP -- one day I will learn BGP and CribP.
What is your absolute favorite game - and who taught you to play?
Spades, my family taught me to play.
Do you currently hold any position in Eliters? Is there any other particular position you might be interested in?
HA of SpadP, I am thinking about PSTD for Pogo but can't do both at the same time... decisions decisions.
What is your proudest achievement in life?
I would have to say not losing my mind after Hurricane Katrina, 6 weeks without electricity, running water and AC will drive a person crazy!
What is the most important thing for you in tournament play?
If you could offer one suggestion to improve Eliters, what would it be?
Well, since it does not look like they will put a stop to letting people play in more than one tourney at once, my suggestion would be to make the criteria for TD of the month fair for all 3 game sites, or make it so that one TD from each game site can have the award every month. Seems to me that almost every month Yahoo is the winner, would be nice to see Pogo and Game Desire TDS also have this award.
If you had one wish what would it be?
I would love to travel! Alaska and Australia would be my first visits.
If you could use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?
Since there are tons of games in 3 different sites that run 24/7 I am sure you will find a few that you love to play in.
What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?
Every time I host or play is pretty memorable, we know how to have a good time and share laughs. One night that really stands out is when Di (runaway) was half asleep and calling us all funny names... Angel = Anel, Bumper = Humper, it was pretty funny and pretty late which made it even funnier of course. Gotta love those 24 hour marathons, they bring out the crazy in people!
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?
Hosting a Battle of the Sexes event a few months ago, I was having trouble getting enough guys in (go figure) but had 10 or 12 ladies playing already... about 10 minutes after the tourney should have started we finally got 6 male players and I typed ''WTF GUYS'' instead of ''WTG GUYS’’... it was pretty funny!
What is the most embarrassing thing, that you can talk about of course
Hmmm, one night during a midnight mirrors tourney I let them play the entire tourney before we realized they had the wrong partners! As a TD that is pretty embarrassing.
If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?
Oprah... so I could buy the real me everything I ever wanted with her money!
You are given five minutes to evacuate your house, the kids and pets are safe - which three items would you grab?
Well the first 3 minutes I would layer on as many clothes as I could and the last 2 minutes I would grab the computer, flat screen and the box of paper work and photos that can’t be left behind.
How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?
Radio; usually listening to Kidd Cradick in the morning, they are crazy.
Name your three favorite movies.
Wow this is a hard one because I love movies so much... if I had to pick my favorites they would probably be... Interview with the Vampire, 50 first dates, Fun with Dick and Jane, The Count of Monte Cristo, Guess Who.. and Meet the Fockers, oh and all the Spiderman Flicks....
Do you have any particular heroes?
Josephine Bosarge -- my grandmother.
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
All that yummy fried Chinese food!
When I grow up I want to be just like:
A Disney Princess, they get the man, get the money, get the castle, and everything else they want!
Any last words for our readers?
Sure, Spades Pogo is the best league in Eliters and you should all stop what you’re doing and enter the next tourney!
