intelligence test…

I’ve seldom felt like the smartest person in the room. I amend that. I don’t think I’ve ever felt like the smartest person in the room. I married a computer/math whiz, and, let’s face it, the math brain trumps the English brain every time. Nobody is impressed with my knowledge of grammar and my ability […]

bravo christina hendricks…

I just saw an interview online by a reporter in Sydney, Australia who asked Christina Hendricks about being an inspiration as a “full-figured” woman.
