~^ this mel's life ^~ diary of a mod housewife?

Actor/singer/dancer. Wife. Daughter. Friend. Secretary. Pisces. Foodie. Music Junkie. Southerner by birth. New Yorker by naturalization. Adoptee. Jewess. Liberal Democrat. But, most importantly, PERSON.

"You may be asking yourself � what is a mod housewife? It is a woman being dragged kicking and screaming into adulthood... Stuck in the netherworld between bohemia and suburbia, between set lists and shopping lists. You've probably seen her at the supermarket with her kid in a grocery cart, headphones blasting Elastica while she debates the merits of low-fat granola bars vs. Snackwells. Maybe you've seen her pushing a toddler in a swing, with a fading ink stamp on her hand from some club the night before... She still wants to rock, and still knows how. She understands compromise. But she's not ready to give in ... yet." ~ Amy Rigby, the inspiration
