Welcome to the "Who's Who of WAMAS"! The purpose of this column is to promote the social aspect of WAMAS. In this issue we have the pleasure of highlighting the personal sides of two of our fantastic sponsors!

marinescene.jpgMelissa Sutton, Manager of Marine Scene Q: Tell us about yourself in a list of 5 descriptive words or terms.Melissa: Fun, adventurous, honest, friendly, shortQ: What's in your life besides this hobby?Melissa: My family, my friends and my pets. Q: How do you balance your hobby life with real life (if you do)?Melissa: I work for a LFS and get to enjoy one of my hobbies each day. I surround myself with family and friends and those who share some of my same hobbies, I try not to let stress outweigh good times. Pretty much I just try and enjoy each day to its fullest. Q: Is your hobby interest and time affected by WAF/SoFR-AF ("wife acceptance factor"/significant other, family, roommate acceptance factor")? Please explain.Melissa: I'm single so my hobbies are not really affected by anyone, just my bank account.Q: What hobbies do you have besides reefing?Melissa: Other hobbies include SCUBA, wakeboarding, photography, craft making, traveling, baking and just trying new things. Q: What pets do you have other than what is in your tank?Melissa: I have had many pets throughout my life including birds, rodents, lizards, dogs, cats, and aquaria. I currently have 3 cats. Q: Compare your life or existence to life in a reef aquarium.Melissa: ?Q: What tank creature do you most resemble and why (describe in a way that tells something about you)?Melissa: My first thought would probably be a shark (I know not tank suitable) because I am often misunderstood. I am strong willed and don't let anyone get in my way. For fun I had my staff/coworkers answer it for me and this is what they said:"Lionfish because you're sneaky""Sexy Shrimp because you can dance!""Blue Ring Octopus because you're unique, interesting, rare and deadly to anyone that torments you.""Venomous Urchin because no one messes with you; mess with MES and you get the spines!""Powder Blue Tang because you're the boss.""Sun Coral because you're pretty during the day but fully blossom at night."Q: What do you get from WAMAS other than information and cheap stuff?Melissa: Because I am a vendor member I do not post much other than the normal specials. The information is great and I have met new people through the boards.Q: What types of WAMAS social activities are you interested in or have suggestions for? Are you up to initiating, facilitating, or hosting a WAMAS social activity in the future, and what might it be?Melissa: Continued support of our LFS'sQ: Give a one-sentence random statement about either yourself or anything at all.Melissa: I don't talk much but if you get me on a topic I'm really interested in you can't shut me up. Q: And finally.... Do you own an official WAMAS thong? Would you be willing to model the WAMAS thong at the next meeting? http://www.cafepress.com/wamas.8579056Melissa: Bring it on!
