I'm the single mother of a son who attends the University of Virginia. Although Virginia no longer registers voters by party, I registered to vote as a Democrat at a time when it was. My son is also a Democrat (as is my mother). I'm also the mother of: a 2 year old tuxedo kitty named Spartacus (who's very appropriately named); a 15 year old Border Collie named Susie; and a 7 month old Old English Sheepdog / Australian Shepherd mix named Livia. My son named the Border Collie when he was 5; otherwise, she'd have a Roman name like the others. I was a Latin / Classical Civilization double major in college (Mary Washington), which accounts for my fondness for Roman names (although my son, a history major, suggested we continue the tradition when we got Spartacus). I collect books, and have thousands of first editions, including some by Dickens and Hawthorne, and am an avid movie fan.
