    i've seen addy box (hartford convention center, or whatever it's called. they confiscated ALL of my lighters but left me with about 20 books of matches. wouldn't let me bring my knitting needles in, yeah, i knit EVERYWHERE, but allowed me to wear my claw ring in. that claw ring is far more dangerous than any knitting needles i own). was a good match though. addy is a friend of a friend so i've known her a while. not well mind you, but i sure wouldn't want to mess with her.

    Addy is pretty mellow -- outside the ring as I have encountered her ... have seen her in some rough bouts and tonight's promises to be action packed ...
