Hey you guys. I’m Mary Beth, but you can call me MB (everyone else does). I also answer to supa — get it, supa mb? — because long boring story short I up and used it for my first ever online internet webmail account, which is still active, and where you are welcome to send spam and hate mail (knock yourself out): firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have a problem with parentheses, and maybe with overlong sentences.
I live in
Baltimore a small town near Pittsburgh. I live with my stunningly handsome and intelligent husband, Iain, and our frighteningly brilliant children: Owen, who’s 6, and Cormac, who’s 3, and Molly, who is but a wee toddler right now, but still freakishly smart, I assure you. Oh, I assure-hure-hure-hure you. We don’t have any pets unless you count dust bunnies, and maybe you should, because ours like to hold euchre tournaments under the bed on Friday nights.
What I do: Newspapers. Surprise! They’re not technically dead yet. When I’m not newspapering I am at home during daylight hours being a stay-at-home mom, which means I haven’t run away to join the circus. YET. I’m not very good at the SAHM thing but then again, no one’s arrested me so far.
I’m a Midwesterner at heart; I’m a Libra; I’m a college grad. I enjoy a good cardigan sweater. I dislike peas. And NASCAR. And sports. I have three fake teeth.
It’s nice to meet you.
About this site
I have been blogging in some form since 2002; Supafine has been around since March of 2003. Everything you could want was available in the archives, which were thoughtfully arranged by category, by tag, and by date, until I took them down in a fit of embarrassment. I find every previously written word of mine extremely embarrassing. It’s like reading your old diary: You don’t do it, because you know you’ll hate yourself in the morning. Best to shove it back under the mattress and pretend your imaginary dog ate it.
I started out writing about my job and my butt; switched to writing about my pregnancy and then my baby and then my second pregnancy and then my second baby and now, well, God only knows what. Stay tuned! Or not. The third pregnancy kind of knocked me on my ass and there’s not much in the way of what we call CONTENT here any more.
Supafine! in the news: Best Online Addiction in the Baltimore City Paper’s 2003 “Best Of Baltimore;” Part of Urbanite Magazine’s July ‘05 feature, Baltimore’s Online Neighborhood. Back when it was special to be a “blogger.”
Those mentions are so cutely and quaintly out of date that I now leave them up like your mom leaves your senior portrait hanging in the stairwell.
