'Thirteen percent of the world's population has red hair'. Lori lives just outside the bustling metropolis of Toronto, Ontario where she is currently finishing her degree in media studies and diploma of journalism. She moonlights as a waitress in hopes of saving enough money to travel throughout Europe next summer.
Lori's pastimes include trying new flavours of soda and dousing herself in sparkle hairspray until her head resembles a disco ball seen only in the likes of drag queen bars. She enjoys reading the latest Olsen Twins gossip, surfing the net for pictures of people with really bad mullet haircuts, and randomly belting out classic 80's tunes when things get a bit too serious.
- Marissa Kristal
Marissa lives and works in the big apple NYC. She graduated with a BA in Journalism, and her passions include creative writing, travel and eating good food (and not so good food). She is also a keen dancer - hip hop, salsa, she may also be a Macarena queen on the sly.
Marissa would be perfect in a hostage situation - she would talk the bad guy down and have everyone released. The hostage taker would then treat everyone to pizza and soon would be sharing knitting pattern ideas with his new best friends - she's that good! Marissa's Blog
