I would love to be a morning person, but I just can’t seem to get the hang of it! But I am working at it - breakfast/brunch still remains my favorite meal. That may be why my Keurig single cup coffee maker is my single favorite possession... I've been told I am most funny when I am most stressed out, and very animated when I talk (rave) about food. One quirk, if it can be called that really, is that, no matter where I am, I run into people I know often and randomly. My friends find it bizarre that I have run into people in the SanFran airport, my first night in Waikiki, in my hotel lobby in Florence, seated next to me at a Mets game, or just standing next to me downtown on the 6 platform. I read a lot - some favorites include anything by Mark Twain, Love in the Time of Cholera, and this one biography of Ben Franklin that was great. I also love college football – it's a family tradition and we all get into it, heading to most games for our team! I tend to be very observant and notice just about everything around me - some days that is exhausting, but most days it is exhilarating.
