Introduction If you are what you eat, then I am a loaf of really good crusty bread, a heck of a lot of cheese, with an increasing number of fruits and vegetables, topped off with ice cream. If not, I am a mid-40s woman who spent way too much of her youth with no clue what she wanted to do, let alone how to achieve it, who is finally getting her feet on solid ground.
Interests music, choral music, writing, reading, theater, travel, watching TV, Joss Whedon, Veronica Mars, karaoke, hanging out with my kids, politics, and reading better blogs than mine

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

the logic of this question does not resemble our earth logic
