Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am married with 3 children and 1 grandson.
What do you like to do away from the computer?
I enjoy bingo and watching every little movement my grandson makes, as I was so busy working and being a mom I didn't take the time to appreciate my own three while they were growing up.
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
I learned about Eliters in 2001, when my oldest daughter (cutiepie, aka Krystal) broke her neck in a car accident. We discovered the computer together and have been going ever since!
How did you pick your Eliter's name? Is this your one and only?
I chose my Eliter name because Krystal is well known and I already knew alot of the players, so it was easiest to be known as her mom. I had another Eliter name a few years ago - blue_noser, as we are from Nova Scotia.
What is your preferred playsite and why?
I am only comfortable with Yahoo right now. Who knows some day I might venture out further in the gaming world.
What made you keep coming back to Eliters?
I keep coming back to Eliters because of the way complete strangers accept you,welcome you, and make you feel special.
How long have you played games online?
I have played online for 6 years.
What games do you play? And what is your favorite game and why?
I play Crib, Gin, Euchre and Hearts. My favorite game is crib as my dad taught me it when I was 9 - it was always "Our" game together.
Have you learned any new games since being a part of Eliters?
Well - I have learned a bit about spades but it just seems to go over my head, lol
What positions have you held in Eliters and is there anything that you haven't done that
I hold no position in Eliters other than the "cute one's" mom.
Who is the one person that you can say has helped you the most here.
Krystal helped me the most, of course!
In your opinion, what makes Eliters different from other leagues?
After reading this question I just remembered I did try another league Royal something... years ago, but I did not feel comfortable or welcomed, so I gave them up after a few days.
What in your opinion is the best thing about Eliters?
If you had one wish what would it be?
Bring back the goldboxxxx!!!
If you could only use one sentence to describe the way you feel about Eliters, to a prospective new player, what would it be?
Be prepared for an unexpected new family!
What is the most memorable experience that you have had as a TD or a player, online or at a live event?
My most memorable experience was the first time I was told by a complete stranger what a nice daughter I had and congratulated me on how well I had raised her. That was very touching.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since joining Eliters?
One day I came online and there was a marriage proposal from an Eliter I had just meet. Sweet but funny.
What is the most embarrassing thing, (that you can talk about of course).
Being called hotties hot mom. Lol trust me we found her under a rock.
If you could be one person for a day, who would you be and why?
Oprah Winfrey! Only problem is I'm afraid I would bankrupt her giving her kazillions away to charities - which she does anyway.
You are stranded on a deserted island, no internet, no phone, no TV, walking along the beach, you come across...
If I were stranded on a dessert island, no phone no internet no tv, and I was walking along the beach - I'd better damn well come across and tall dark man!
How do you pass the time on your drive to and from work?
Cranking up the tunes!
What is your favorite book/author?
The Diary of Anne Frank.
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
My guiltiest pleasure WAS the goldboxxxx.sniff -now i have to spend time with the husband...how fair is that!
When I grow up I want to be just like:
I choose to never grow up - but..if I really have to grow up I would be honored to be just like my mom.
Any last words for our readers?
Well...if you are new to Elite, you're in for a very special journey. If you've been here for some time - you all are what makes this site worth coming back to everyday!
