    Have you ever heard of Jasonville?

    Yes? Either you're one of the five people who live there or you've got family who fits into that category.

    No? It's small commune of meth labs in Southwest Indiana, and my current place of residence. Hello from there!

    When not going undercover on various writing forums (okay, just the one...) my name is Kristen. I enjoy cats, various caffeinated drinks, reading, rainy days, scary stuff, old stuff, recipe shows, and writing. And my cats. I used to be a member of the site, but after undergoing a few years of absence and a handful of email changes, I decided to make a new account.

    I'm also a college noob.

    That's everything I can think of. Fire away!

    Welcome!

    Did you stick the reference to "meth labs" in there just to see if people were really reading your intro post?

    Anyway, welcome!

    Hello, all! Thanks for the reading material. And the meth labs are quite commonplace around here, so I forgot how jarring that would be to a non-Jasonvillian? But I suppose it's a good thing you were taken aback by it.

    Anyone like haunted houses?

    Welcome back. I'm sure Jasonville has nothing on Missouri when it comes to meth labs. I believe two of the nearby counties where I live are the top meth producers in the country.

    I like watching shows about haunted houses. I don't know about actually going in one, though.

    Thank you again all! And I asked about haunted houses because my boyfriend owns one, and I've had the privilege of being an actor for the past couple years Great fun!

    Welcome!! I might enjoy rainy days too but being from Aridzona I've only read about them in books and seen them in movies. I could however throw a rock in any direction and hit a meth lab so I can relate. Can wait to see you in the SYW forum.
