Professionally, I am a database-backed web site developer, not a baker.
I have a degree in math.
This is unrealated to my ability to multiply metric conversions in my head; that comes from having to calculate sales tax on my book purchases as a pre-teen.
My soft serve cone has jimmies on it; worder comes from a fawcet; Kandy Kakes and Krimpets are delicious; 55 is only a suggestion for the Sure-kill aka the Expressway. In short, I'm a Philadelphian.
I hate to cook.
I'm not thrilled with Thanksgiving, either.
Christmas has been my favorite holiday since childhood; I wrote my Confirmation Class term paper on it.
Valentine's Day is least favorite. Those expectations will mess you up for life.
I am a massive nerd. I've been a Dr. Who fan since my mother turned it on when I was nine, and now I go to conventions and cosplay (that's me in L.A. dressed as Sarah Jane Smith). I game. On line.
When I lived in Germany, I learned to drive a manual transmission, and much prefer it over an automatic.
Since 2008, I've had my motorcycle license. I ride a 125 cc scooter.
I also bike.
Other drivers make me very, very nervous.
Favorite way to kick it up? Crystal Hot Sauce.
Favorite way to spice it up? cardamom.
Favorite nut: my wacky family.
Least favorite nut: I try not to discuss fringe politics.
Least favorite nut, edible: walnuts. For years I thought I hated nuts. No, I just hate this bitter, nasty thing.
Tone deaf. This physically pains my husband, who had perfect pitch before he listened to all that metal in high school.
I do 99 percent the work on the website.
I rarely drink soda, but when I do, it's San Pellegrino Chinotto, which tastes like sweeter, non-alcoholic Campari.
