Where do you live? I live in Georgia, Northeast of Atlanta, in a little old-timey, backward town that has quickly exploded into a disgusting urban sprawl that threatens to consume every last inch of available parking lot space (read, woods). Also, there are no sidewalks.
How old are you? I’m thirty-two. I’m thirty-two? Yes. Math still proves I’m no longer eighteen.
What are you really awesome at? I am really awesome at routinely beating myself up for unimportant things. Also, forgiving myself for beating myself up. I have a codependent abusive relationship with myself. That’s totally normal, right? Also, I make some awesome bread (except in the summer, when you pretty much have to bribe me to turn on the oven and we exist on goldfish crackers and cold waxed beans). I’m pretty good with my camera, and occasionally I write something decent.
What’s your favorite kind of cake? The kind that someone else made and is willing to share with me.
About my photo: This is a picture of me and my husband on my wedding day, which kind of generally sucked for various reasons, mainly because I would have rather skipped the ceremonial part and the guilt trip part and the spending money on a display of wealth and public avenue for personal attention part (which, I much prefer in the private sort of behind the scenes venue). ANYway. I just ate the damn cake. I’d like to say it was a semi-conscious feministic response to consumer culture and a rejection of the dominant-subjective relational constructs of man-and-wife, but really there just weren’t any forks, and we agreed we weren’t going to go all cake smash on each other, and the simplest way to eat cake is just to eat the damn cake.
What’s your unroast for the day? I didn’t leave the poopy diaper for Daddy to clean up when he came home today. I’m so nice.
