... because a girl can't read or write or eat dessert all the time

Hi, I'm Mary.  I'm a writer who gave up knitting years ago because there were only so many hours in the day and carpal tunnel braces in the house.  But knitting, like the UnDead, has crept back again. And this time I'm doing wrist exercises.

The Non-Knitting Burning Questions

What should I wear tomorrow?

If I spend three hours baking bread instead of walking twenty minutes to the store and back and then writing for two and a half hours, am I still being productive? (answer: of course!)

If I went for another job, which ones are more exciting than sitting in a chair typing?

Who can possibly save my brain, right now? and maybe give me something to listen to while I cook.  Anybody?

Speaking of which - what should I cook?

Should I buy this non-book item?  What do other customers say about it?

Is there someplace I can hear the whole song before I download it?

Ooooh, and while I'm here, can I see Christopher Walken tapdancing again?

I wonder whether IKEA has anything new to get this place organized once and for all?
