Pleasant Hill, California
A gazelle because I feel alive when I am "gazelling" down the field.
The starchy crop that is the fruit of the soil. You can scallop 'em, boil 'em, mash 'em, bake 'em, fry 'em. There are hash browns, gnocchi, tator tots. Au gratin and roasted. That--that's about it.
I collect gumball machines! Oh, and I have unfounded and unsustainable obsessions with the newest, most fandangled water bottles and mechanical pencils.
