Diamonds or pearls? Depends on the situation. Pearls make anything and everything look classier, but diamonds if the situation demands.

What is your favorite TV show? I only watch TV when I am doing something else and I want the background noise. But I find CSI fascinating. Or any show involving surgery, gore and blood.
What did you have for breakfast this morning? Half of a leftover sandwich from yesterday. I am not the pickiest eater in the world.
Biggest Fear? Failure to live up to my potential, things being thrown at my head and becoming a three hundred pound woman with cats.

What is your favorite cuisine? Seafood. Especially in independant restaurants that are creative with their cooking.

Favorite clothing store? Where to begin? Bananna Republic, White & Black, J. Crew and Ralph Lauren
Where would you like to retire to? Annapolis. Right on the water.
Favorite time of day? Right about seven in the evening. When the air is still fresh, the light is changing and everything just seems beautiful. Even in the winter.
Where were you born? Laurel. Which, in essence, much to my chagrin, makes me a "local" girl.

This odd narrative is my life. I ended up in Pittsburgh, of all places--from the beach. I have no hobbies, other than cooking excessively and eating microwave popcorn. I enjoy shopping, the Food network, hiding the remote so the Food network cannot be turned off, find ethnic food stores and restaurants and reading voraciously. My life is decidedly pedestrian.

I worked in the car business where I was required to be ruthless and soul-less wench, which is when I started this project. Since then, I've kept it up because secretly, I've always wanted to join the military. Every male in my mother's family has joined and I quietly entertain thoughts of joining. I haven't yet and don't know if I ever will, but sending the troops cookies keeps me sane. it makes me think I still have a shred of human kindness left in my withering soul. it's a small way for me to salute the men and women who are brave enough to fight for freedom. And makes me feel like I'm contributing toward troop morale--even if I'm not. So if you want to help, send me addresses of troops you know stationed overseas. you may also contribute toward the cost of chocolate chips, but don't feel obligated, that link is here only by request.
