this is me in my biking get-up. my husband and i go on monthly critical mass bike rides with a group of local folks to promote alternative forms of transportation. i'm originally from the Midwest, but my husband & i moved down here to Miami, FL, where we are both in a PhD program in anthropology. for fun i watch lots and lots of movies, read novels, non-fiction, magazines, newspapers, graphic novels, catalogs, pretty much anything i can get my hands on, especially cookbooks. my pets are rita and nesta, nearly identical brother & sister littermates. they are the most co-dependent kitties i have ever known. very sweet, but a little too clingy sometimes. my pet peeves are the phrases, "i don't like it" followed by, "i've never had it".
