She was a vixen when she went to school,
And though she be but little, she is fierce.

- William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

 Katie Knapp (formerly Kate Danemark) is a responsible adult with absolutely no vices whatsoever. Those have all been taken away by force. And yet, she is married.

Required to lead a healthy life, she now does nothing but exercise, eat whole grains and write prolifically for Rambles.NET. Anyone who wants to argue to the contrary will be asked to redirect their statements to the editor, who will assure them that he has indeed chained poor Katie to the keyboard with the expectation that she will write the bulk of Rambles.NET material for the foreseeable future. And do the ironing, too.

Katie is frightened.

She will doubtlessly avenge herself on the editor through poetry and countless domestic snares. In the meantime, she is building a protective wall around herself made up entirely of books, CDs, empty Pringles cans, lollipop wrappers and discarded children's toys.

Oh, and there's a dreamcatcher for pretty. And two very lovely rings (with bling!) that bind her forever to her editor in many unspeakable ways.

Editor's Note: Some of the above statements are lies.
