The Grotto - the apartment - garden-level - I share with Lex.
Lex (aka Lex-a-licious, Lexmeister, the Lexster...and yes, occasionally he's totally annoyed with me) - my roommate, confidant, non-husband, heterosexual life mate (if we were same sex and not gay). Committed life partners without marriage and/or sex.
|This is what I think Lex looks like. He won't let me take pictures of him...probably because he knows I'll post them on the blog.|
Acr0nym (or Matt as I refer to him in the linked post) - BFF and additional non-husband. Apparently, I collect them. We don't live together or have sex. Aside from Lex, he is my most beloved friend, confidant, heterosexual life partner. If I don't see him, I, at the very least, talk to him via chat or phone every single day.
|Acr0nym...it was really dark so forgive the grain.|
Vinny - aka The Wonder Cat, The Guerrilla Terrorist Cat, occasionally Turd Blossom or Love Bug.
|Subtle move to get me to pay attention to him. Yes, he is full grown here.|
Blind Betsy - My mom.
|Me and Blind Betsy|
Not to be confused with...
Bomb Betsy (aka Magnetica Bombastic) - one of my friends and a member of...
The Ducks and Puppies - a group of fabulous, mostly single, irreverent friends consisting of: Devo Was Right, Owen, Bomb Betsy, Sean & Mo (or S&M), and Sarah Williams

The Divatologist - I can't put her into words as well as she can. Lovely friend and occasional partner in wine and crime.
Peej (aka The Social Instigator) - friend and occasional partner in wine and crime.
|Peej and Peej on a stick|
Spux - friend and occasional partner in coffee klatches, explorations in art, wine/beer/shots, and crime.
|Spux w/panties on his head|
modchen and #himself (aka the bats in my belfry) - upstairs neighbors and occasional partners in wine and crime. I occasionally blog about their cats.

Andy (or Andrew) - ex-fiance, now deceased. He died just as I started this blog and I still talk about him on a relatively regular basis. His passing quickly changed the direction of this blog from a lighthearted, irreverent place to containing a bookmark of some of the most keening grief I've ever felt.
There are many many more cast members but those should, hopefully, keep you straight-ish.
