decaffeinated was born on a Wednesday and is thus full of woe. Growing up the child of a religious zealot (mom) and a devout capitalist (dad), decaffeinated has no problem relating to just about everyone, but her way of seeing the world is sometimes a little skewed. A middle child (in fact, not only a middle child, but the second girl in a lineup that includes a gorgeous older sister and a funny, tender-hearted younger brother), decaffeinated is good at playing the mediator and tries not to get overlooked. She loves books, dogs, writing, and her friends. A good cup of coffee never hurts, and she thinks her husband is pretty neat, too.
