Why Crista From The Block you ask?

I have held the name Crista From The Block* in my title page on myspace for years! The title is more appropriate than you will ever know. To HELP you better understand (you will never understand in full - so stop trying!!) I thought I would share a few random facts about myself. Here it goes:

1. I live in a predominantly African-American neighborhood, but I once had four room-mates here who were from three different countries.

2. You can understand religion? - I’m impressed!

3. MUST HAVE MEAT! Although I did work in a meat processing plan for a few months many years ago, and that experience came close to changing my mind.

5. I am a few years older than a few years older than a few years older than you. In other words, I am so old that I wouldn’t even consider asking you out on a date. And if you asked me, I’d be looking around for the hidden cameras. But hey, blogging is ageless, and non-committal.

9. At first glance, I thought you said "I go to a saloon (non-redneck)..." I think it was only the part about waxing that made me read it again. Glad to know you don't have anything against rednecks!

11. I refuse to wear any jewelry.

18. My cat used to have this problem. Maybe we can hook them up on a date together since they have so much in common.

19. See number eleven.

23. I very rarely go to gay bars, but several months ago I went to one for business purposes. I knew two people there (a patron and the bartender).

27. I prefer to steal other’s lists and expand upon them.

34. I am Sagittarius, often mistaken as mentally insane.


A. I was once elected Vice-President of my College International Student’s Organization.

B. I have met people from over forty-five different countries while living here in little old Fort Wayne, Indiana.

C. I once ran for United States Congress.

D. I can look at an unlabeled map of the world and name nearly every country on it.

E. I once bought a house for less than $3,000.

F. I have found that some of the same things that Canadians have told me they like about my country are the same things that I like about their country.

G. I have discovered that the average Canadian is much calmer than the average American (and the Canadians seem to agree with me on this.)

H. I find it odd that Canadians get mad when I refer to myself as an American, yet that is how they frequently refer to me.

I. On several occasions, I have done things that should have gotten me killed.

J. I hate mustard and mayonnaise.

K. I love to play black-jack at casinos.

L. I drink whiskey, and brandy - but not nearly as much as I used to.

M. I once accidently started a fire inside the Sears Tower in Chicago.

N. While visiting Israel as a child, I nearly sparked a riot inside the caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls are kept.

O. When I look over this list, I realize that the later part of number thirty-four above may be far more accurate than I would like to admit.
