My nicknames are Uz, Uzzie, Uzmita, Uzeems, Uzzie Jeans, and Uzita. So if you still can’t pronounce my name correctly, feel free to use one of those.
I love talking about religion from a social and objective point of view and discussing its role and effects on our society.
I love learning about science and trying to wrap my head around complex concepts.
I love people and learning about them.
I love all marine creatures and am especially enamoured by whales.
I love food and chocolate-covered fruit.
I have six amazing best friends (one of them is my husband, Jim).
It makes my mind spin trying to fathom the size of our universe.
I love laughing and being silly.
I love paper.
I am grateful to science and animals for giving me a chance to live and be healthy.
I don’t do something just because everyone else is doing it. I am not a sheep.
I have become more of a skeptic over the past few years as a result of my increasing awareness of the amount of hokum in our everyday world. When I say hokum, I mean “mediums” who claim they can talk to dead relatives and read your “aura”, homeopathic remedies, astrology, televangelists and psychics. Oh yes, and I forgot Santa Claus and the tooth fairy. Don’t believe in them, either.
