Welcome to Wif & Hub (now with Bub). Our blog is many things – an outlet for a couple who loves to write, a way to share what’s going on with friends and family, a place to post recipes and home renovations, and a way to document our lives. Wif has a bad memory, so it’s sorta necessary. We welcome your comments and suggestions for our blog and are happy to have you join the conversation. Thanks for stopping by!
Wife, mother, doctoral student, assistant director, homeowner, researcher, daughter, in no particular order.
I am a full-time assistant director of a multidisciplinary undergraduate program at a large public research university and a candidate for a doctorate in education policy. Friends and foes have described me as flamboyant, passionate, intimidating; my dissertation advisor says I’m “too friendly.” I’ve also recently become a mom, own an under renovation DC rowhouse with Hub and love to cook. This blog is to keep me honest about my dissertation, my work, and of course, my cooking.
What about Bob! Hahaha! What, you think that’s funny? Well, it’s not. I’m sick of it. Sick of hearing about it. Sick of people thinking that they’re creative because they can identify a subpar Richard Dreyfus/Bill Murray joint with my name in it. You think women named “Pearl” want to be reminded of “Pearl Harbor”?
The movie, obviously, not the event. Writing about the event would be in bad taste. But anyway. I’m rambling. And I apologize about before. The whole “What About Bob” fiasco. Then Pearl Harbor? What was that about?
Anyway, let’s start again. I’m Bob. I’m Cole’s husband. But she calls me “Hub” on this blog. Even though it’s stupid. And I asked her not to. Yet she keeps doing it. What’s up with that, right? I mean, I’d like to know what Metro stop she lives near, so I could ask her where she gets off.
Of course, I live with her. We own a house together, that we are renovating together. I know exactly where she lives. I guess that was just rhetorical. Kind of mean though, huh? I love her so much. I hope she’s not mad at me. It’s just a stupid name. A really stupid name, but still…
So I’m supposed to introduce myself. I’m an attorney by trade. My hobbies include cooking, gardening, reading, lots of golf, making out with our dog, making out with our cat, and fixing up our beautiful old house. I work on Capitol Hill for a Congressional agency. The Hill is a weird little place, but the work is interesting, and it pays a couple of the bills. The rest are accruing interest with Bank of America.
I look forward to getting to know you better, Internets. Up till now, you’ve only been providing me with entertainment, cheap household items, and hours of mindless surfing. Now I get to be a small part of this giant distraction. Huzzah!
Bubus is our baby.
We think he rocks. This is because he is totally awesome, and not because we are biologically compelled to love him.
