What’s cooking, good looking?

I’m a person with great visions. Sort of. I’m the kind of person that drifts away into her own thoughts pretty often, dreaming about a future that has yet to become realistic. But, as Nike taught me well, I do believe that impossible is nothing (wait, or was that Adidas?)

Thus, I do have some things cooking in the pot. Whether they get spoiled or cooked to perfection, is yet to be discovered. It’s not smart to take risks, it’s stupid. Guess what DIESEL so wisely taught me? BE STUPID. And so…
