Hello new friends!

I am a children's librarian, grad student, amateur home bartender, traveler, school bus driver, bird watcher, anxiety & depression sufferer, Honda s2k enthusiast, fan of all things Dr. Who, lover of cuss words and snark, and Mother of Dragons. Ok, not dragons, per se, more like little floofy, wiggly dogmuffins.

I have always loved reading and have to pick my purse for the day based on how big a book I plan to lug around. Some of my favorite books & authors include: To Kill a Mockingbird, the Harry Potter series, the Game of Thrones books, Neil Gaiman, Rosamund Lupton, Three Times Lucky, Gail Carson Levine, Patricia C. Wrede, Gordon Korman, and The Blogess- Jenny Lawson.

My go-to cocktail is a perfect manhattan, but I'm happy with a glass of scotch or even a beer if I'm feeling skinny. I don't care much for sweet drinks, but prefer a balanced, boozy treat. I'm a little obsessed with the history of cocktails from "Professor" Jerry Thomas to modern heroes like Dale Degroff. In case you're wondering (and I know you're not) 641.874 is where you'll find "cocktails" in the Dewey Decimal System. I haven't the foggiest about the Library of Congress  classification because that shit is confusing.

I like my coffee like I like my men...

bitter.
