Last night I went to my first bellydance class after a summer-long hiatus. It was amazing!

Wow, I've always wanted to take a bellydance class. Even have a contact name/number to an awesome dancer/instructor. Just not enough hours in the day. But AND bling, what could be better?

The cost of the debt ceiling battle: $1.8 billion. Smaller less wasteful government, eh?
As Congress and the President have stumbled ever closer to the deadline for default, interest rates on short-term government paper have jumped.

Everyone needs more cowbell in their life. Here's a whole lot more from the classic Will Ferrell and crew SNL skit. Enjoy!
Due to a lack of cowbell online, I put up the only prescription: more cowbell! In this hilarious SNL skit, Blue Oyster Cult is recording their hit "Don't Fear the Reaper" along with cowbell-jammin' Wi...

Is there anything better than a pair of jeans that fit just right? Other than the first cool day of almost-fall to wear them on!

Someone at worked 'edited' my document and added two spaces between EVERY SENTENCE, when I had put only one. Because ONE is CORRECT! Argh! Now I have to go and undo all their changes/damage.

Writers should have to worry about details like this. The software (or a human editor) should make sure the final product (print or e-book) looks "right".

Climate science consultant. Writer of fiction and non-fiction
Author, marine science geek, gardener, mother. Barefoot whenever possible.

Ten random things about me:

  1. At the age of 6 or 7 (?) I proposed and debuted the role of Toto in a summer camp production of the Wizard of Oz.
  2. I have a naturally deep, scratchy voice, which prompted double- takes and comments from strangers when I was young: “Where did you get that voice?” (Occasionally, I told them I stole it).
  3. On a family trip to Senegal when I was 10, I was chased by a baboon wielding a dead parrot. My father had to scare him away.
  4. I pursued majors in bio and French in college and one of my professors tried to convince me to pursue a PhD in French lit. I can no longer read the papers I wrote back then.
  5. In 1997, shook hands with Nelson Mandela and attended a private speech he gave to the Independent World Commission on the Oceans in Capetown, South Africa.
  6. While recovering from a break-up in grad school, I learned to knit, spent a month brooding and completed a sweater. In the process, I developed a wool allergy and have never been able to wear it.
  7. Before my first pregnancy, I couldn’t stomach the smell or taste of tomatoes or olives. Now I love both.
  8. I was a certified aerobics instructor and taught kickboxing for U.S. Senate staffers until the tendons in my ankle said “stop!”
  9. Every car I’ve owned has had a manual transmission. My Dad taught me the basics of driving a stick during a test drive for my first car.
  10. Writing this list made me realize how many odd random things I could tell you - so I'm stopping now.
Bragging rights
My husband and I chose a common last name, Meitiv. (We couldn't stick the kids with Luttenberg-Lobkovsky!)
