I am Cynthia Lee Schaum, retired Software engineer, crocheter, MMORPG enthusiast, parrot, cat, and dog lover the rest of the time.  Currently playing Guild Wars 2 and still enjoying 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, my old Catahoula/labrador mix Christie, and last but not least, my son Anthony, his SO Danielle, and my three grandchildren Ronald, Londin, and Lilith.

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!

Now that I’m sort of retired, I make some additional funds pet sitting through Rover and selling crocheted shawls and scarfs on my Etsy store.
