Diary of a Mad Accountant

I'll admit it--I'm a twentysomething yuppie from Chicago, IL. When I'm not at work slaving away at my accounting job, I can be found watching Mike (my husband) play PS2, crosswording obessively, thinking about planning my next trip abroad, wondering what the hell the next "organize my life" project is, or watching movies marketed towards 13 year old girls with Katie, my best friend.

I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and I'm both desperately waiting for and dreading the final book to be released (because that means the series will be over!). In the meantime, I'm in the process of reading a whole bunch of different novels to catch up on books that are classics (from "A Handmaiden's Tale" to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and everything inbetween). Suggestions for new books are always welcome!

I'm competitive to a fault, organized, and high-strung. My friends have likened me to Monica Geller on several occasions and it's a fair cop.

I did NaNoWriMo in 2004 and 2005 when I wrote the first half (2004, 57,468 words) and the second half (2005, 61,767 words) of a mystery thriller called "The Delusory Cure". It ended up being 119,235 words long, and I finished the damn book! Now I have to edit the monster. But putting that aside, I'm doing NaNo again this year, but doing a book that's more rom-com (romantic comedy) than anything, about a dysfunctional workplace.
