My very first post...

...is this thing on? After lurking on others' blogs and journals for far too long, I've decided to get brave and dip my toe into the polluted, possibly overcrowded waters.

Who am I? Late thirties (or as I like to call it, holy God, how did I get this close to 40?), Seven Sisters grad, gainfully employed in a career that I never saw myself in, daughter, friend. Mainly, still trying to figure it all out. I feel like half of me is an adult, and the other half is still a teenager.

I love:

Ice cream: Should be one of the main food groups, if you ask me. I will also not turn down Rita's Water Ice, should you offer.

Tequila and vodka: My home is always stocked with ice cream (see above), tortilla chips, chocolate chips, tequila, and tequila. There may be nothing else in my pantry, but these are staples. Is it bad that I saw a Dunkin' Donuts commercial for the new Watermelon Coolata and all I could think about was taking one home and adding vodka? That's not the sign of a problem, is it?

New York City: If I won Powerball, I'd buy an apartment in Manhattan within 72 hours, I swear. (Oh, and a shore house. And enroll in grad school. But I totally digress...)

Nordstrom's: The day they opened in my town was the day my life changed. The clouds parted and the sun came out...

Purple: Well, duh, look at the page.

Music: Everything and anything - pop, R&B, country, oldies, show tunes, I could keep going. This also explains why I'm a die hard Glee fan.

Books: I read it ALL, from Serious Literature (ahem) to mysteries to Nora Roberts to non-fiction to Twilight - told you I was a teenager in disguise. The one who hooked me, though, was Nancy Drew, and I'm forever grateful. Taught me that smart, curious girls are always cool, and that problem-solving never goes out of style. When I was a kid, I was either reading a Nancy Drew or a Judy Blume book (my other heroine).

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where I conclude this message. Now I need to go out because I feel the strong craving for a Rita's mango ice.
