    I did not know that AG was the hottest girl in the nonprofit sector – but now that you mention it – wearing hot pink shades and flip flops in front of a watermelon stand is pretty damn hot.

    While I do agree that she is a pretty darn good cook – my favorite is her penchant for holiday moonshine – BTW, where the hell is my stash this year?

    Also, Anna G. you have a book?
