About Me

    Advice section: Paint your world colorfully! Ya never know what's gonna happen next.... Don't let your dog run lose if you have no fence. There's no shame in being a virgin. Know where your napkin is before you stand up, especially if you intend to use it again. Bill Gates can't hear you from here, although it'd be nice if he did. Hit the bathroom *before* you get in the car. Even a 1% chance is still a chance. Read the instructions carefully, occaisionally they'll screw up. Know thyself. Trust in God. Keep the tie-dye, lose the high heels. Cheer like you mean it, don't swear if you don't. And ...Always set the timer to record a couple of minutes before and a couple of minutes afterwards in case the clocks decide to stop matching.
Rainbow Heron 1999

Origin of "Rainbow Heron":

In my junior year of high school, several of the guys I had been cheering with informally decided to officially formalize into a cheering group known as Da Baron Fans. When the time came to purchase our custom shirts, we each chose a name and a number for ourselves. Originally, I called myself "Blue Heron" in honor of our school colors. Within a month, I recognized that "Rainbow Heron" was more indicative of my personality when I used it in signing up for my first email account. The following year, I purchased a second shirt to reflect the change. Incidentally, the shirt says:


Hi y'all! My name is Aimée "Rainbow Heron" Anderson and I'm a misfit- that is to say, I don't fit into too traditional many catergories. I'm what you'd call a non-conformist, IXTX if you must know, although I'm not necessarily against tradition as long as it makes sense. I love the variety of life and the stability of home.

I was born in Washington D.C. and later moved to South Carolina, where I've been stuck for the better part of my life. My Yankeeness still comes out at odd times and can occaisionally get me into trouble. Up North, I was raised on the Smithsonian, blizzards, gridlock, multi-national classrooms, and the Nation's Capital was my backyard! Down South, I was raised on grits, sweet iced tea, Hurricane Hugo, and mosquitoes. The good news is I got family down here, the bad news is, I still get homesick for the bustling metropolis and dozens of museums.

It took me several years to warm up to the computer, and thankfully it has helped sustain me through some very difficult years. The reason I haven't been as digitally active lately is because I've gotten better! I hope I can still maintain a good real life/digital life balance in the upcoming years, but for now, please feel free to look around what's been building since May 29 1999!
