About : McDiablo was born in the early 1980’s. She has a younger sister and brother—they are both taller than her. Her parents are also taller than her. She has lived in British Columbia and in the same house all her life.
McDiablo likes cats, not dogs, and ninja, not pirates. However, she adores her dictionary and thesaurus equally.
Due to an operation that removed a hunk of cheese (aka: a tumour) from her humerus bone, McDiablo now sets off metal detectors in airports. She is now one-quarter bionic and can deliver deadly shoulder checks.
While she is a recovering Slurpee-a-holic, McDiablo is far from quitting her T-shirt addiction. Her shirts are cooler than yours will ever hope to be. Some of her favourites include a Gangsta Shakespeare, handicap humour, and an X-ray of her ribcage.
In her spare time, McDiablo likes to write, draw, play Playstation 2 (or Coleco Vision if she’s feeling old school), read, listen to music, and hang out with Emerald. She also heads the top-secret-but-not-really ninja army, which is coming to kill you soon. Be on the lookout for them…which is pointless, really. They’re goddamn NINJA!

I always blank out when making lists like these. I'll wake up in the middle of the night and scream,
"I should have added THAT!". Zounds...
