My life revolves around a menu. Usually dinner.
I have hair the color of Rock & Rye, on purpose. If you haven’t heard of Faygo pop, made right here in Michigan, I’m not interested in being your friend.
I’m what one might call feisty. This includes, but is not limited to, being an anxious, super social and fun, geek/nerd/jock/fair queen-type hybrid, overachiever, can’t-say-no-non-profit volunteer junkie, petite syrah (sirah) lush, dirty martini drinker, beer snob (unless I’m tubing down a river, in which case it’s PBR-or screwdrivers from an OJ bottle), foodie, crazy about my dog Walter (#walterthewonderdog for all of you Tweeps), madly addicted to lip gloss and sunscreen, a hopeless romantic, a liberal, a communications professor, PR professional, and a vegetarian, well, vegan-ish. I run for fun, okay, not really fun, mostly so I can stuff my face with delish musings from home and professional kitchens.
I work for a pretty rad PR shop in Grand Rapids, write for a FUN regional magazine, and in my spare time I am a doctoral candidate in public policy, and teach PR/Comm to newbie professionals–hey someone should love/teach/coach those monsters, may as well be me.
I post here about once a week, some successes and some failures. Most of them delicious. If you are interested in me as a real person, follow my rants on Twitter via @adriwall; however, it’s not for the faint of heart.
