Welcome to my Blog!
I'm Ami, and if you've seen my profile, you know I'm a 27 year old girl from Michigan, and what some of my hobbies and interests are.But there is a lot more to me than can be said in the limited space available in the profile.
As it says on the bio, my name is Ami. But that is just online. In real life, it is not my name, but my nickname. I am a 27 year old girl, and my birthday is June 9, 1978. I was born in Michigan, and live in the suburbs of Detroit.
I'm 5'1 (yes, I'm a shorty!) & I'm not telling my weight until I lose A LOT of it (LOL!) I'm Konkani (Don't know what that is? Look it up online!) I've got dark brown eyes & chest-length jet-black hair. I have 2 piercings in each ear & one in my nose. I'm kind of shy & quiet at first, but once I get to know someone, I'm more outgoing & fun. I'm often talkative, but I'm also very sensitive & a caring listener.

I am a self-professed TV addict (LOL!), and proud of it!
As such, I have tons of favorite TV shows. Currently, my top faves are: "7th Heaven", "Strong Medicine", "Law & Order SVU", "Gilmore Girls", "General Hospital", "One Life to Live", "ER", "Reba", "The Simpsons", and the Benjamin Bratt & later Chris Noth (the episodes with Jill Hennessy and S. Epatha Merkerson) years of "Law & Order".
Also when it was on, I loved “Third Watch", "The Division", “Friends", "The Practice", "The Guardian", "Judging Amy", "Homicide - Life on the Street" (the last 2 seasons only), "Boston Public", "State of Grace", "Party of Five", "Beverly Hills 90210", "Any Day Now", "The Huntress" "NYPD Blue" (the Jimmy Smits years) and "Profiler".
Being an 80's child (born in 1978) I also love a lot of TV shows from the mid to late 80's like "Punky Brewster", "Webster", "Perfect Strangers", "Mr. Belvedere", "Who's the Boss?", "The Cosby Show", "Family Ties", "Growing Pains", and "Just the Ten of Us" to name a few. There are some more, whose names I can't think of off the top of my head.
I told you I was a TV addict! LOL!
Also, I love to read and write (especially poetry and fanfiction) and I've got many stories posted on Fanfiction.Net which are listed on my profile page at:
I wanted to start a blog for a while, but since I wasn't sure how to start, and what to put in it, I kept putting it off.
But after surfing through some other blogs, I decided to just take the plunge!
So, in July, I started a blog on Friendster, but despite posting frequently in the beginning, I could not seem to attract any comments, and more to the point, I was wondering if anyone was ever even reading it. In all these months, I have had only 1 comment to my posts.
After reading an article in the local paper about this website, I thought I'd start a blog here, instead.This blog will be a collection of different interesting websites, articles, and other odds and ends, both on the Internet AND off-line, as well as my thoughts and opinions on those and other subjects.
