in her own words...

I will give up misery in a heart beat for a good time. I have no sense of humor. I know how to travel. Given enough time, I can produce a proper footnote. I only rarely finish this week's New Yorker before another one arrives. I been doing Atkins for more than seven years. With breaks for rebellion. I failed Marriage 101. If you're looking for nurturing, you will starve around me. I have boots and they can go for about twenty miles. But slowly. I love NYC. I'm part sophisticated-older-woman-of-the-world, part trouble-maker, part monk, part lazy slug. I'm frequently late, moderately competent, and generally curious. I have written in library books. There is a mysterious force that keeps me out of the gym. Not always, but . . . I'm an art historian--fourteenth-century Bohemia--working on a book about a chapel in a castle 30 km southwest of Prague. So I'm learning how to write a book and am forced to go to Prague for research. I'm curious about my contemporaries: what are we doing with our third acts. First, we should drink coffee and talk. Decide whether. Touch or recoil. Make a great movie or rip up the script. Be nervous and get wet or recoil. Learn something new. Always, no matter which way the movie goes, we'll learn something new. Laugh.

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
