About Me



A visit to another lady’s blog inspired me to make an About Me page.
(So I copied and pasted her list, and filled in my own information)

I hope this will give some insight to me and my little blog.



  • Name: Barbara Ann. This was before the Beach Boy’s song AND the Regent’s version.
  • Aliases: Xerraire
  • Birthday: May 11 Which, if you believe in that kind of thing (I don’t), makes me a Taurus. Some might say I have a Taurean stubbornness, and I suppose I do, but only when I deeply believe in something. I pick my battles. I have been told I have a sensitive sense of justice, I think that says it well.
  • Birthplace: Baltimore, Maryland.
  • Residence: Good question. Where IS my residence? Currently I am bouncing between Maryland, USA and Perth, Australia.
  • Languages: English, Spanish, Catalan, and believe it or not, I am slowly, very slowly, looking to add Russian to the list!
  • Occupation: Freelance for Web & Graphic Design, Portrait and Event Photography.
  • Education: High School, Some College, Art, Piano and Spanish Classes in Sabadell, Spain. Life, has also been a good teacher and the lessons are never ending.
  • Hobbies: Photography, art, music, graphic arts, Terragen Art
  • Politics: Follow the money trail to know what’s what.
  • Religion: My best friend was born in a manger.
  • Cuisine: My mom’s cooking of course! I miss her fudge, her chipped beef gravy, pancakes, and her traditional dishes.  I like Mediterranean cuisine. I make a grand Paella, Catalan cuisine, and tapas. I guess my favorite dish is “Fideos a la Casola” but I can be equally happy eating a pop tart. 🙂
  • Soundtrack: Oh, visit my list of music » HERE
  • Favorite color: Peach, mint greens, pastel yellows…
  • Favorite flowers: Pink fairy orchids, Everlasting daisies, and Banksias of Australia are very alluring.
  • Favorite season: Autumn, I don’t get to see it much any more.
  • Favorite drinks: Diet soda.
  • Addictions: Ok so I am a Candy Crush Christian woman with a mild diet soda addiction. Throw in a little WoW, too.
  • Favorite flavor: Anything maple!
  • Favorite scents: Vanilla Lace from Victoria Secret, Sand and Sable,  and once I used to use an amazing fragrance called Entrissé, sadly it’s no longer available.
  • Favorite place to be: Where ever my loved ones are. Which sometimes tears me in half.
  • Aversions: lies, phonies, close spaces, disrespect, laziness, those who never listen, mainstream media, sexism, racism, narcissism, passive aggression, and apathy.
