Tell us a little bit about yourself:

I'm not your typical nineteen year old. I have decent grammar, spelling, I enjoy politics, reading, writing, and sports. I'd much rather spend my nights at home reading a book or playing online than going out to a party. I've always been a bit of a homebody, not because I don't have friends, but because I choose to. I'm outspoken and friendly, and I love people (especially Eliters).


What do you like to do away from the computer?

As mentioned above, I love to read, write, play sports, watch sports, hang out with friends and...talk on the phone, my mom aka jantrip can verify that one!


How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?

I learned about Eliters from my ex boyfriend, who signed up before I did...I joined 6 years ago.


How did you pick your Eliters' Name? Is this your one and only?

I just used one of my old email addresses and this is my 4th.


What is your preferred play site? and Why?

Hmm. My preferred playsite, that's really a tough question. I'd probably say Pogo, even if Yahoo Pool was the first league and only league I played in for a year or so. Cribbage Pogo was my home for the longest time, and I've met some wonderful people there, some of whom even came down to my house a few summers ago to visit myself and my mom. I do love Yahoo, Gin is my new home and the Eliters in there are wonderful. But Pogo, especially Cribbage, will always have a special place in my heart!


What made you keep coming back to Eliters?

The people and to be honest, it's damn addicting!


How long have you played games online?

I've been playing online games since I was about 9. Haha, I started playing slingo with my mom!


What games do you play? And what is your favorite game and why?

I play Crib, Gin, Pool, Doms, and Euchre. My favourite is definitely Crib, because I've met some amazing people in there, and I think it's the game I'm most skilled at, but Gin is a close close second.


Have you learned any new games since being a part of Eliters?

I have. When I first joined Eliters, at thirteen, the only game I knew how to play was Pool. And that was really the only game I knew how to play for a year. My mom taught me how to play Crib, and Doms as well as Gin and Euchre. And now I'm better than her at all of them!


What positions have you held in Eliters and is there anything that you

I've hosted in Cribbage Pogo and my highest position was AGL. I'm currently a SrTD in Gin Yahoo. I'd love to be a Hot Tourney Director.


Who is the one person that you can say has helped you the most here?

The one person? I'm going to have to say either my mom, or Fran aka nono from GinY. Its a tough choice.


In your opinion, what makes Eliters different from other leagues?

Well first of all, I said it the other night to my mom, Eliters REALLY is like a family. She commented on how some people that she didn't even know were concerned when she was in the hospital, and I said, that it was because we are like a family. The website is 100% better organized and is more functional. I love Eliters. It's fun, convenient and a good time all around.


What in your opinion is the best thing about Eliters?

The people, by far.


If you had one wish what would it be?

That's really tough....probably that no one would ever experience suffering.


If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about

Eliters is the place to be, whether you're a pro at your favourite game, or just learning, there's always someone here to help you.


What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player,

When peg4awin, cutiepie and runaway all came down to mine and my mom's place to stay. It was such an amazing time, and having them leave was the hardest thing. It was even better when Peg showed up wearing an Eliters shirt.


What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters.

I can't pick out just one thing, but there have been MANY, MANY fun nights in Crib Pogo. That lobby is party city.


What is the most embarrassing thing, (that you can talk about of course).

Probably having a bunch of Eliters forget I'm on webcam, and scratching my nose but it really looked like I was picking it...ugh, I wanted to die of embarrassment.


If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?

Britney Spears. I'd turn her life around for her in one day. Seriously.


You are stranded on a deserted island, no internet, no phone, no TV, walking

A mac computer...a girl can dream, can't she?


How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?

Well since I don't drive and I take the bus, I listen to my MP3 player, or just stare out the window.


What is your favorite book/author?

Ugh I can't just pick one. Either "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by George Orwell or "Devine Evil" by Nora Roberts. And those two are definitely my two favourite authors


What is your guiltiest pleasure?

The internet. I'd die without it.


When I grow up I want to be just like:

My mom - a strong, brave woman!


Any last words for our readers?

Eliters rocks!
