The Apron Stage. Look for a daily post from one of us. We each take a weekday and often delegate Friday to a guest writer.

(Note: we’re very much still working out the glitches, be patient with us as we navigate the ins and outs of being the next big thing. Someday, you’ll tell your friends, “I read it back when it was in beta…”)

Lisa Piorczynski. I could tell you that I have a BA in French, an MA in TESOL and a job teaching English at Pace University. But you’d probably prefer to know that I chose my apartment based on its proximity to my favorite bakery, I blush easily and I still catch myself saying “if I die.” I also get Old Testament stories confused with ones from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. I’m not sure what this says about my spirituality, but I hope it doesn’t keep me out of heaven.

Louise Plummer. I am a woman of a certain age, which means my last period was some time during the first George Bush’s administration. I am married to Tom and we have four grown sons and almost a dozen grandchildren. I am an INFP on the Meyers-Briggs Personality Assessment. (You can take it online.) I am happiest in summer and gloomy in February. That’s when I take the Beck Depression Inventory to rate my gloominess. (You can take it online as well.) I also like taking those IQ tests that pop up now and then. I live in Utah and can see the world’s largest copper mine from my upstairs study window.

Sarah L. Olson. I recently graduated from law school in northern California and am currently practicing in Washington, DC. I also have an MA in Curriculum and Instruction, a BA in English Teaching, two parents, seven nieces and nephews, and two new suits.  Well, one and a half, I guess.  Also, now that I’m a professional, I’m trying to be more articulate and precise.  Ish.

Rebecca Smylie. I recently had a conversation with a tired women who complained about the women who “have it all together.” She actually used the phrase, “like yourself.” And so I admit that these days, in addition to being a retired educator and a stay-at-home mom, I spend most of my time keeping up appearances.
