Hello, readers! Are you a lurker? Do you read my blog without leaving a comment? Do you pop in to check on me without saying hello? Now’s your chance to come out of hiding and tell me more about yourself… It’s National Delurking Day! (Please, leave a comment even if you see this post any time over the next few days).

Inquiring minds want to know:

  • Who are you and where do you live? (I’m Mary and I live in Toronto.)
  • Do I know you in real life?
  • Do you have a blog? (Um, yeah)
  • Who is your celebrity doppelganger? (I’m told I look like Natalie Wood.)
  • What did you have for breakfast today? (Greek yogurt and honey parfait.)
  • What are you craving at this very second? (A vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting.)
  • Which books are on your bedside table? (Bill Bryson’s “At Home”, Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair,” “Sesame Street Bedtime Stories”, Ian McEwan’s “Solar”, Jonathan Franzen’s “Freedom”, “Goodnight Moon”, “Moo, Baa, Lalala.”
  • What’s the last great meal you had? (Mine was at Martin Picard’s Au Pied de Cochon restaurant in Montreal: gnocchi, tomato tartlet, bison short rib, poutine, poudding chomeur. It was a veritable taste awakening.)

Even if you answer only one of the questions above, or simply say hello, I’d love to hear from you! Come out, come out, wherever you are!
