Wine & cheese

September 24, 2004

A gorgeous spread of wine, cheese & fruit at Seth & Stella’s My friends and I have been indulging ourselves. We play poker, drink beer and eat doritos.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
