    Margo

    [IMG]images/img/margo_bio.jpg[/IMG]

    Hometown: Oceanside, California
    Age: 40
    Marital Status: Divorced, three children
    Occupation: Purchasing Supervisor
    Hobbies: Decorating, entertaining and hanging out with my children
    Favorite Dinner Party Conversation Topic: Wonderful funny stories and anecdotes. Any topic that incites arguments or causes ill feelings is completely off limits.
    Favorite Foods: Sushi, olives, great cheese, crème brulee and a good steak.
    Handmade Object That You Are Most Proud Of: My headboard. I used a sheet of plywood and some 2 x 4s and attached them to form a headboard. Then I padded the wood with batting and covered it with a beautiful camel colored faux suede fabric. A dynamic look for only $25!

    Okay, now in Margo's world... who defines what is "wonderfully funny"?

    Anyone who makes a headboard with PLYWOOD deserves to have their glue gun confiscated.

    No, I never made one, but I've been thinking about it...there was a good one on Trading Spaces, I think Gen made it. I'll let you know how mine turns out, Texie.

    I like her food choices, and the headboard sounds clean and modern, if flimsy.

    Another 'Trading Spaces' type gal. A Dynamic Look for 25 Dollars! Kill me now!

    Plus, you have to be recognized as perfect before your marriage falls apart. Then when you talk about your estranged kids on TV like they are your best friends people will sort of be comfortably ensconsed in the lie.

    I'm conflicted about her food choices. Two of them are among the things I like least (sushi, olives) and two are among the things I like best (great cheese, creme brulee).

    I guess it comes down to this: what, in her opinion, constitutes great cheese?
