About Me

Life is a grand adventure! I’m a wife, daughter, sister, friend.  I have two cats.  I like to run, read, and write. I’ve begun writing about running elsewhere, so I use this blog to write about other things that amuse or interest me.

I like gadget-y things and all manner of distractions on the interwebs.  I do Android, not iPhone.  I do Kindle, not Nook.  I do PC, not Mac.

I grew up in Texas, but live in New York City.  I know it’s true that you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t Texas out of the girl.  As a hobby, I research my family’s genealogy to learn where I came from.

I wear Chucks until they get holes.  I like my pants too long or too short and I almost only wear black.  I am pierced and tattooed.  I am a Christian. (Not that kind.)

Some good quotes:

Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word. .. A Texan outside of Texas is a foreigner.  — John Steinbeck

In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get  through you. — W. H. Auden
