I am a graduate student trying to finish up my Ph.D. I like to sew as a way to do something completely unrelated to school. I also love cats (especially my two!) and keeping tropical fish. I enjoy cooking (but not cleaning up) and reading. Perhaps because of these two interests, it should be no surprise that I enjoy reading cookbooks–not just the recipes, but the often ignored text, too. I wish I had a garden, but until I have a yard to put one in, I make do with containers on my patio. If you can't tell, I love living things.

I enjoy fiction, non-fiction, autobiographical fiction. Most things. Some of my favorites are:
There will always be a place in my heart for 80s music. I don't normally listen to country or rap music, although there are a few songs for each genre that I secretly love. Some of my favorites right now (although certainly not all, and in no particular order) are: * Dar Williams * Barenaked Ladies * Of Montreal * Chicago * Tori Amos * The Police * Bran Van 3000 * Rodrigo & Gabriela If we are a music swap together, don't worry too much about my taste in music. I love discovering new music!
