Husband and I have been married for a whole year and counting. I work for a local municipality as a GIS Technician (Geographic Information Systems- GIS- its like Google earth on steroids). I've got lots of cook books mostly so that I can flip through them and then make something up. I don't do realllly well at following recipe directions, I like to alter them and make stuff up as I go. Occasionally it doesn't turn out too well but most of the time I do OK. I have a great passion for things spatially related, which is how I ended up a Geographer. I think we should all be able to find our own state on a U.S. map- at a minimum. Also that everyone should be able to cook at least a few simple meals not only to sustain themselves but you do need to occasionally impress someone.
