Enough About Me, What Do YOU Think About Me?

Have I mentioned my hearty dislike of memes? Oooo, I really don’t like them. For starters, I already have a head full of nonsense just waiting to get out, and at the root of it all, I’m not a joiner.

I’d like very much to sit with Jessica at the Baekerei Munding in Innsbruck over big servings of cake and coffee. And because Jessica asked, I will do her #$%&@*$ meme.

Also, because it’s about why I’m fabulous.
