A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework, and anything else I can think of.
Can I just say how much fun I am having with this one? I'm a foodie, and always interested in Russia, and this excursion/memoir of Russian food and custom is a scream and a half. The exploration of how and why Russians drink, not to mention the proper way to drink (drinking alone is a no-no) is both very sad and riotously funny.
