About

I am Cynthia Lee Schaum, a Software engineer by trade, MMORPG enthusiast, parrot and cat lover the rest of the time.  Currently playing Guild Wars 2 and absolutely loving it!  Shelved  Lord of the Rings Online, Star Wars: The Old Republic and the original Guild Wars, after a long history with World of Warcraft, Warhammer Online, City of Heroes, a bunch I can’t even remember, and Everquest II and I, and to really date myself, MUDs such as Abandoned Reality and Forever’s End .  Proud mama of Bandit the Nanday Conure, Merlin the Bronze-Wing Pionus, two wonderfully extraordinary cats, Nekoka and Sassafrass, and last but not least, my son Anthony.

Tony gave me the Wazeau handle when we got our first internet dialup connection back in the olden days. I’ve loved animals and especially birds my whole life. He was taking French in school. He is a very bad speller. Hence Wazeau instead of Oiseau. Pronounced Waz-OH!
