About Author

This summer, the one thing I absolutely, positively cannot live without is...
"My headphones. When it's nice out, I love to listen to music while exploring new parts of the city and just wander about...And, okay, I might also occasionally pretend to be listening to music when people ask me for directions (but that's probably because I don't know where I'm going either — downtown confuses me!)"

Current food obsession...
"I'm pretty much always obsessed with food, so this isn't exactly 'current,' but right now, as I write in this very moment, I could really go for truffle french fries with chipotle mayo or another equally awesome sauce. I love condiments, and the french fry is my favorite vehicle."

Next up on my Netflix is...
"Anything with Elizabeth Banks or Prime, which *shout-out to Netflix* should be available in streaming. Meryl Streep plus Uma Thurman plus Bryan Greenberg? Yes, please!

Latest guilty pleasure...
"I pride myself on having impeccably strong hands that can open any sized can or jar, no matter how tightly the lid is screwed on. So, I'm really into buying anything twist-top: hair masks, artichokes, candles. Seriously, I'm like a human can-opener."

The one song I can listen to over and over...and over to is...
"'Mind Your Manners' by Chiddy Bang. I love songs that have kids or choirs singing in the chorus."

My must-have cheap thrill...
"In the summer it's iced coffee — I have yet to master making it on my own. But, I also cannot live without my notebook. I write everything from reminders to jokes in it. Call me a modern-day Harriet The Spy."
