Madeline St. John


SWF seeks readers to share a few laughs:

About me:

I love the ocean and getting out every day to bike, run, kayak, hike or skate. I like to dance, listen to bands, and explore new places. I can't cook. Julia Child rolls over in her grave when I pick up a spatula. I'm not a huge movie fan, but I'll watch Point Break or Die Hard anytime they come on TV. I own Star Trek, the Matrix, and all six hours of the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. Yeah, baby. I listen to all types of music with a soft spot for cheesy lite hits from the seventies (who can deny the universal appeal of "Muskrat Love"?). Book I wish I could write: Confederacy of Dunces. I can admit that I'm a terrible driver. And I own way, way too many shoes. And, sometimes, I sing along to the muzak in dressing rooms.
