About me

Industry Banking
Location United States
Introduction I live in North Carolina, somewhere between the ocean and the mountains, and I work for a financial institution. I'm politically plaid, leaning towards red. I like to bake, and I love to read about baking. I have a short temper and a smart mouth, and a most immoderate fondness for chocolate. I read, do cross-stitch, knit, and put my feet up a lot. I live in a 1920's bungalow with one husband, two enthusiastic dogs, two mildly irritated cats, one fearless kitten, and an ungodly amount of electronica.
