I am 51 and female. I live in Manhattan and have two kittens, Swiffy and Squeeky. They are sisters, adopted from a wonderful rescue group in Philadelphia. I saw them posted on petfinder.
I am an attorney but not practicing right now. My main legal interests are litigation, real estate and insurance.
I travel frequently. I love Maine, South Carolina, and cruises. I also like traveling internationally. Greece and Turkey have been my favorite locations so far! I am hoping to travel once the pandemic really slows down on a river cruise and/ or another safari (this time to Botswana to the Okavango Delta).
I love love love love cooking and cookbooks, especially cookbooks with southern, Cajun, creole cuisine. I also love international cuisines. I'm remodeled my kitchen so I have so much more prep space and I love it. I think I have far too many gadgets and knick knacks in my kitchen than anyone could ever have or need. It's out of control but secretly, I enjoy having it all.
I love makeup and skincare as well as face masks! I hate nail polish though.
I like photography and antiques especially Asian Art. I love going to auctions when I have time!
I like James Taylor and listen to Howard Stern.
I watch far too much reality tv. I LOVE Married at First Sight! I also love cop and cooking shows like OP Live/ Live PD, Cops, all the Law and Order franchises, 60 Days In, Hells Kitchen, The Great British Baking Show, The Kitchen, The Lost Kitchen, Cooks Country, and Americas Test Kitchen….any show with my favorite chefs like Ina Garten, Jacques Pepin, and Julia Child (love the really old episodes especially).
I keep up on the news, government and politics a lot. I watch and read the news daily. Sometimes some of the nonsense going on in all the branches frustrates me so much that I need a mini break from watching and reading. My Masters is in Politics and Government so I don’t stray too far from ‘keeping up’ even though I know our system is failing in some areas.
I like all types of food but hate mushrooms, nuts and cauliflower!. I never met an oatmeal chocolate chip treat I did not like. Milk Chocolate and peanut butter combined are the best things in life.
I never got into stickers or scrap booking. I had to look up what Washi is. I am also far from crafty and don't color in adult color books. I would be terrible at that!
I do love candles, wax tarts and sometimes those Reed/ oil combo bottle diffuser things.
I was recently diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis and I have been living with IBS for quite a long time. If you have either / both and have any great suggestions especially regarding low FODMAP foods and high FODMAP food substitutions, I would really appreciate it.
I am Jewish so I don't celebrate Christmas. However, there is nothing more beautiful, in my opinion, than Manhattan during Christmas time. I love walking throughout Manhattan and checking out the decorated store windows.
Happy New Year everyone!
