I cheer for: I cheer for the Minnesota Vikings without fail. It’s a disease.
Favorite office tradition: Our birthday celebrations. We’re each responsible for bringing treats for someone’s birthday. Most bring one of their homemade specialties. Others (like me) shop. As you would expect, we have some very creative chefs.
Every year I look forward to: The changing seasons. I like all six of them: spring, summer, autumn, early winter, winter and late winter.
