About GeminiGoddess

I’m Tara.  I’m married to Greg.  I’m mommy to Mirabelle and Hana, and stepmom to A (15 yr old boy) and E (11 yr old girl).  We live in Oregon.  I’m a stay at home mom at this juncture in my life, and I often miss interacting with the outside world.  How much Noggin can one person watch without wanting to punch Moose A. Moose in the face?  This is a good way for me to have a conversation with someone, even if it’s just with the voice in my head.

Here’s a little bit about my lifestyle.  Let’s just be honest.  I really want to be a hippie.  Not a hairy, patchouli wearing, stoned hippie (no offense – I love those kinds of hippies too!); but a natural, earthy, organic, garden growing, attachment parenting, homeschooling, peace mongering, domestice goddess, midwifing, healer hippie.  I’m about half way there.  I’ll let you know when I think I’ve attained that status.  Let me just say that despite wanting to be all of the aforementioned, I have no problem with letting my kids watch Noggin, eat sugar, and have some plastic toys.  It’s all about balance and moderation for us.  You could drive yourself crazy trying to be the perfect green/natural family.  I have better things to do, thank you very much.

Here are 25 random, silly, possibly interesting things about me.  Nice to meet you 🙂 I hope you enjoy my blog…

I am in a beautiful, happy, monogamous relationship with my soulmate, who happens to be a male. However, I am bisexual so I really got lucky because he could have been a she and then I would have to deal with discrimination every day of my life in this country, which makes me sad for all GLBT people dealing with it. My beautiful, intelligent, caring husband assures me that this is the last major hold out for the judgmental bigots of the world and that we have to have hope in light of this auspicious day (for future reference today is the day MY president, Barack Obama, was sworn into office).

I want to do things that matter in the world. I want to contribute something to the world that is pure, and true, and of real value. That is why I am a mother. That is why I am a healer. That is why I want to be a midwife.

Having my two babies is the most awe inspiring, profound, wonderful, and amazing thing that has ever happened to me. Their existence has expanded my capacity to love, my understanding, and my awareness, and it has made me love my husband even more than I did the day I married him, which I didn’t think was possible at the time, but oh baby, it is! There is nothing more touching than looking at them and remembering how they were literally created out of our love and our desire to create something beautiful together. We did it my love, we did it beyond our wildest dreams!

I am actually excited about the prospect of turning 30. Yay!

I can’t stop smiling as I watch Obama speaking today.

I can’t sit still. I have to be tapping a toe, twirling a pen, or playing solitaire on my iPod (my newest obsession – before that it was Sudoku).

I can wear a size 8 again after two babies. And Victoria’s Secret finally has pants that are long enough to fit me. Hallelujah I can buy pants that fit!

I snort when I laugh really hard.

I always wanted to be a ballerina and it is the one and only thing I am still mad about from my childhood. Isn’t that funny? I’m pissed that Michael wouldn’t let me take ballet but I’m not mad that he almost killed me…whatever, we all have issues, right? I just live vicariously through my own daughter now, lol. And no, it is not lost on me that I am way too tall to be a ballerina. My petulant, five year old self does not care. The heart wants what the heart wants people!

My favorite vegetable is spinach.

My favorite fruit is banana.

My favorite color is lavender.

My favorite smell is lavender.

I could never decide what my favorite genre of music was until now, and it is *drum roll please*…folk.

I think it’s funny that I’m always cold and my favorite thing to have is icecream, and my husband is always hot and his favorite thing to have is coffee. Go figure.

I have 6 siblings. And we’re not even Catholic! Ba-dum-bum.

Even though I frequently vacation in the pot growing capitol of the world, I still have never gotten high. Maybe I’ll save that one for my 30th birthday. Yep, I just decided.

I can do tricks with my feet. The next time you see me, ask me and I’ll be glad to show you.

I hate having anything on my feet. My mom and my husband both bought me slippers and I never wear them. Good thing Greg and I have the same size feet, b/c he is now wearing the moccasin slippers he gave me. Merry Christmas! 😉

When I get drunk I start stripping. I guess I hate to have anything on my anything.

My middle name is Ranae, and for about 5 seconds in middle school I tried to go by it because I didn’t like Tara. Say whaaaaaat? Tara rocks!

I am a book whore. I have no willpower. Someday they will find my lifeless body buried under a pile of books I got trapped under after my “to read” pile fell over on top of me as I was sleeping…

I think Jack Black is hilarious.

I get all of my energy late at night. Which is why I am typing this at 12:39 AM.

I hate cell phones! Fuck! I just want a phone to be a damn phone. What’s with all this gadgety shit? Blinky-blinky, fancy-schmancy, texting, camera, music/movie playing, internet surfing shit. What’s next, a phone that is also a dildo? Now there’s a feature I’d use 🙂


  1. Fucking hilarious. If you make a dildo phone I will be first in line for the preduct trials!!

  2. I love you, cousin! Your blog is great.

  3. I love your site. Keep it up !
