    oooo freaky but in a TOTALLY cool way! (eyes)

    ahhh Xena .. *abruptly breaks out in song*

    "Joxer the Mighty
    Roams through the countryside
    He never needs a place to hide
    With Gabby as his sidekick
    Fighting with her little stick
    Righting wrongs and singing songs
    Being mighty all day long
    He's Joxer—he's Joxer the Mighty!
    He's Joxer the Mighty
    He's really tidy
    Everybody likes him
    'Cause he has a funny grin
    Joxer the Mighty!"

    ah-ha! A gamer at heart I KNEW I liked you for a reason! And yay to lefties although I've now been converted.

    Well deserved award!

    I love your 7 things! You have amazing eyes! My best friend (and beta reader for my book) has 2 different color eyes, also... I find the phenomenon so interesting that my main character also has this trait! :)

    As for Xena... I have proudly carried the moniker of Kaleesto for years because of that very same reason! Loved that show.

    Nice to get to know you! :)

    Hi Clarissa :)

    Glad to see more Xena fans coming out of the woodwork!

    I like to give my characters unique eyes as well. ;)

  5. Oh wow! I used to love Xena Warrior Princess. Miss that show.
