Lots of sugar, and a Schwinn.

My hope is to one day own a dreamy cupcake shop (and be the next Alice Munro, of course). As the 15 Tri-met bus crawled up Belmont tonight on the way home from my lovely (but still very practical) day job downtown, I cracked open a fresh Willamette Week and read about a lady who is my new hero (sorry, Alice - Munro and Waters - you'll always be in my heart). This wonder woman, according to WW "was burnt out on fund raising for local nonprofits and had a 'Third-of-life crisis,' which helped her settle on her true love: baking cookies." But get this - she does business from her bike. She's trying to head up her own cookie CSA ( CSA = Community Supported Agriculture; cookies might not qualify, but I'm going to sign up and eat the cookies, not quival).

Brave New Brownie, indeed. Read more about Lulu's Confections here.

Very inspiring. A few years ago I thought my truly calling in life might be making cheese -- but alas, I'm in public relations.

I suspect you make plenty of cheese in your job, dear :)...

Is it weird that we want to be the same person when we grow up?
