What is Eaddy Made?

My name is Stephanie Eaddy and I am a Georgia peach, transplanted to Alaska, and later adopted by Baltimore. If you were to meet my mother (an impossible mix of grace, love, and obstinance), my father (an Army vet who damn near invented the scorched earth philosophy), or my older sister (an all around badass who is at once an ally and an antagonist), you’d soon realize that Eaddy children are not so much raised as we are forged. Someone once had the nerve to tell me that I sounded just like my father. They meant it as an insult. I took it as a compliment. I survived the gauntlet. I passed every test. I was forged. I am Eaddy Made.

EaddyMade.com is your source for a fun and intelligent take on the world today. Whatever is happening, I’ve probably got something to say about it. From pop culture to politics and everything in between, I’ve got a lot to say and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram can’t hold me so I say it here. Welcome to the party!

In addition to sharing my thoughts, opinions, and jokes, I provide website development, writing and editing, and other consulting services to small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals looking start their own entities. If you would like to access my expertise in any of these areas, please review my credentials on the Help Me Help You page and feel free to contact me.


Stephanie Says
The Velvet Underground

Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why she’s given half her life, to people she hates now
Stephanie says when answering the phone
What country shall I say is calling from across the world
But she’s not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her ’cause it’s all in her mind
It’s all in her mind
Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why it is thought she’s the door She can’t be the room
Stephanie says but doesn’t hang up the phone
What sea shell sea is calling from across the world
But she’s not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska
Between worlds so the people ask her ’cause it’s all in her mind
It’s all in her mind
She asks you is it good or bad
It’s such an icy feeling it’s so cold in Alaska,
it’s so cold in Alaska, it’s so cold in Alaska
