What I Do for Fun: Take selfies with my dog, make my own cheese, and drink a little too much whiskey for someone my height.
The Furry Members of My Household Are: I have two dogs, Angie and Kira, with whom I have very rich and fulfilling relationships. Then there is the cat. I don’t think he knows I’m here.
My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Angie, food, baking, ethanol, science.
My Pet Peeves Are: One day I will buy a turtle and I will name him “Peeve.” It’s going to be hilarious. Until then, my pet peeve is the term “chemical free.”
My Guilty Pleasures Are: Society tells me I should feel bad about genuinely loving fast-food, but I don’t have enough shame to feel guilt over it.
How I Deal with Cat/Dog Hair: Long conversations with my pets about how we simply can’t go on like this.
