I'm a 30-something Latina, mother of one, wife and leftist who takes her politics seriously and her literature even more so -- but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy a good laugh. I'm a total dork at heart.

I have a couple of blogs I rarely update, but they involve food and design.

About 90% of my entries are "Friends Only" because I like being open with a small group of people.

The End.
