I've been a "groupie" of the Tongariki chapter for far too long. It's time I take the plunge and pledge. I hope the Tongariki's have good things to say about me!

So what else do I need to do next or what do you need to know about me?

I find goats to be quite cute and amazing critters. I've also recently learned of a goat rescue group, called Goats of Anarchy, that purposely saves goats with special needs.

Mhmm, the "Goats of Anarchy" I've seen ran through Liberty City breaking windows and burning carts. Then they climbed into the trees and spat seeds at people.

Well....I'm a chemist and a crazy cat lady, who has always found the chemistry cat memes (http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/chemistry-cat) to be rather amusing. When I was trying to come up with my FOM board name, I wanted something relevant about me, in Hawaiian. I'm also into knitting and other fiber crafts, but at least according to Google Translate there is no Hawaiian word for knitting.

As for other things about me, my job as a chemist is a bit interesting, and not all test tubes and beakers. I work for a medical device manufacturer that makes breast prosthetics. So basically, I make boobs for a living.

But for the main reason why I'm here, I have become a tiki-phile the past few years. It started as a love for 50s / 60s kitsch when I was in high school. I didn't even know what tiki was back then outside of it being kitsch-y / retro. One year for Christmas, my parents gifted me 2 of the Shag party and tiki cocktail books, as well as a generic set of tiki glasses, which I still have. That probably started the tiki itch. Then when I was house hunting in 2009 with my husband (antipants), we fell in love with mid-century modern style homes, and eventually bought one in Atlanta. Now that we had this retro home, it meant filling it with some kitsch and modern furniture. As I dived into all things mid-century modern, tiki started to become a part of that, and snowballed from there.

Somehow Mr. antipants found FOM, and joined. I've been a bit of a tiki groupie since then, but it's now time for me to *hopefully* become official.
