1. Please tell us a little about yourself. Age, locale, work, family, whatever you'd like to share.

Hi! I'm known as Punkin at Dimensions. I am 51, live near Abilene, TX. I work as an Item Processing Specialist for the First Financial Bankshares group. I am married and we'll celebrate our 30th anniversary this coming November. We live in the country and have 10 cats! Also, I graduated from Abilene Christian University in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science in Social Work. Hubby and I have formed a non-profit organization (BEK Foundation) to aid families that have lost everything due to disaster (flood, fire, etc.).

2. Tell us a bit about your relationship with food. Are you a 'foodie' and, if so, what do you think makes you a foodie? I posted that I was a foodee (versus a feedee) long ago on the Weight Board. I love food. My favorite channel on t.v. is The Food Network. I inherited my love of food from my Mom. My step-Dad once commented that we talk about food way too much.

4. Is there a special food, or type of food that would elect you president of its fan club? Oooo, that's a toughie. I have so many loves! Currently, it would probably be pasta! I love pasta in all forms. You can do so many things with pasta. I love it in salads, as a main dish, side dish...I even have a fruit salad that includes pasta - that dish alone is almost a dessert.

5. What is the freakiest or most fun food fact about you? I'll choose freaky. I often fantasize about being the last person alive and running amok in both a candy story and a bakery (can you tell I love sweets!).

6. Do you like to cook? Do you have a dish or dishes you consider your specialties? I love to cook, but, most of the time I don't. I used to bake cookies by the dozen during the holidays and my hubby says I'm the dessert and veggie expert in our house.

7. Do you think more about food or sex? (this might help with the "are you a foodie" question, above) As I get older, food is becoming more important to me.


I'll add that Dimensions is the only place I feel totally free to discuss my love of food. My family doesn't encourage this side of me as they believe I need to lose weight.
