Marj Hatzell climbed Mount Everest, explored the Amazon and swam the English Channel. No, she didn’t really, but she’s the mother of two children with a variety of disabilities and diagnoses so SAME THING. It sounds good, though, doesn’t it?
You can also find her at her wildly unsuccessful,not-so-new, and oft-ignored blog, The Crazy Dog Lady.
If you get a headache while reading this because it’s jumping around too much, just put your hand on the wall, it stops the spins.
Random things about Marj:
Marj is not a writer but plays one on tv.
She goes to 11. Also? 42.
She’s got more energy than a chinchilla crossed with the Energizer Bunny.
Marj loves potatoes. And cheese. And potatoes with cheese. Come to think of it, She loves cheese with potatoes.
Marj prefers dogs over people. This means she has stellar social skills.
Things Marj likes: dogs, snow,reading, potatoes (did she say that again?Her bad), jeeps, cooking, sleeping, trees, plants, flowers, learning foreign languages, crossword puzzles, cryptograms, sudoku and logic puzzles, old movies, foreign films, teen dramadies, HGTV, and referring to herself in the third person.
Here’s stuff Marj doesn’t particularly love: lima beans, raw onions, cats (except dead ones), summer weather, mean people (they suck), getting any part of her body wet, the smell of cooked meat, birds chirping at 5am, and discussing politics and religion in polite company.
Why the “Domestic Goddess?”: When Marj began her career as a Stay-at-home-mom, she really resented papework that listed her occupation as “homemaker.” She did not make her home. Some guy named Carmen did. So, if there was a blank, She started checking off “self-employed” and writing “Domestic Engineer” or “Domestic Goddess” in its place.
Although she’s considering writing”The Very Embodiment of Pure Awesome” for her career for now on.
