    Hi Glen!
    Long story short: Born in NYC, moved to Hawai’i after college, returned to the Northeast but couldn’t afford Manhattan so tried Boston, then decided to escape the cold for awhile in the mid-atlantic south. Sounds like you also like the East Coast 🙂 Thanks for the nod!

    Stumbled into your blog because of “Facebook” essay. (very funny) Continued to read because of the photo of the black and white cookie. Living on the West coast, it’s not the East coast bagels or pizza for which I yearn, but the “half moons.” Yum.

    I have enjoyed reading your humorous take on the events of the world. I have added you to my blog roll, if that’s okay. I think you have a profound understanding of Obama’s health care plan. Perhaps, everyone would if they would all just stop watching him on T.V.! LOL. Take care.

    Molly, I just read your interview with Jennifer Aniston in Happy Women Magazine. I think it was very distastful, to say the least. I know you won’t go far in your career when you pick on people and are so very negative. You should find another job.

    And if you want to pick on people, take a look at yourself and work on that first.
