I feel very lucky that I love so many aspects of my life (job, home, friends), and I'm always up for trying new things. I must admit, I have a fairly high pop culture IQ, and plan to keep it that way (if you tell me you don't own a TV, I'll probably look at you as though you told me you were raised by wolves). My friends are incredulous at how fast I read (I can easily go through one trashy novel a day on vacation). My Dad was the reigning champion on several game shows. I will kick your butt at Trivial Pursuit. Also - I adopted a dog (a rescue mutt) a few years ago, and I'm in love! This is my 1st dog ever, and we're having a great time together. P.S. - my friends have told me to mention the rave reviews I receive anytime I serve up some of my homemade chicken soup & matzo balls.
