Notes of a Native Reporter

Career news reporter, crime buff, Francophile, Mozart and Marley fan, chain-smoker, nerd, dropout, chronically underweight, sarcastic, black-wearing, stupid-risk-taking, Vermont native, animal loving, convertible-driving twenty-something...

Those are the things that haven't changed since I started on d-land in 2002.

The thing that has: The most amazing baby in the world, M.I.D., born Feb 13, 2007. I had to quit drinking. And when she started baby-swearing at me, I had to quit that, too.

My favorite diaries:

comments: A magazine person. But a news person at heart. ; )
doubleW profile - diary
comments: If I worked with him, I'd smack him. Luckily I don't, so I he just makes me laugh till I snort.
sixweasels profile - diary
comments: DO NOT READ with liquid in mouth. My computer is permanently damaged from the number of times I've spat diet coke across the screen reading Sixweasels. Oh, yeah, and I almost want a "weasel" now.
atsari profile - diary
comments: I'd like to slap her ex silly. Besides that -- reporter, livin' on the wild side, and a great person.
nacwolin profile - diary
comments: She likes crab cakes and kids' giggles. She'll make you happy. Pastors wives are NOT what you think they are! N is a purely phenomenal woman.

comments: Please update!
killkessa profile - diary
comments: I was hesitant to add anyone who is fairly unapologetic about having an eating disorder. But Killkessa is more than an eating disorder. She writes. She lives an ED, and she writes. I guess that is all I can say.
mia-baby profile - diary
comments: Another "please update"! Botanist. Essayist. Grew up the member of the only white family in a Labrador town without driveable roads. 18, thoughtful, introspective... and oh yeah, she has an ED too.

comments: A chick I can relate to. Have you ever been arrested because you were taking off your bra in the car in a traffic jam?
themoi profile - diary
comments: French, living in Ireland.Rocks my boat. Plus she's named Maud. ("Brave fIighter") In one of my favorite childhood books, Caroline didn't get a gun so she named her kettle "Maud." And used "Maud" to clock indians.
