Juanita Coulson has been filking since the early 1950s, when she first set Heinlein's Grand Canal, Green Hills of Earth, and other Future History ditties to music and wrote a few original songs of her own. Through the decades, she has filked in hotel hallways, elevator lobbies, room parties, the roof of a HolidayDome sauna, etc. etc. etc.; until filking started getting respect and we started getting actual rooms reserved for our use at cons. She has accumulated several awards, somehow ending up in the Filk Hall of Fame (her words, it's really richly deserved- Ed.), is recognized as a Den Mother, and as an OVFF Grandmistress. Intends to keep it up until the lungs, or something else equally vital- might give out.

She also notes that she has been working at Wal-Mart for about 7 months now, which should equate to some sort of Chinese curse.
