I'm the consummate bookworm. I am graduate student in American literature and have been pursuing college degrees for the last 10 years(!). I am a lover of coffee, chocolate, and good (cheap) wines. I have no pets, but have a wonderful husband. I can knit, but am limited to scarves at the moment. I think that the best kind of help in the kitchen is no help at all. I am officially addicted to coffee, gum, and chocolate.
