OUTSIDE OF WORK

Liz's current hyperfixation is gardening, although you wouldn't know it to look at her garden, which could generously be called a work-in-progress.  Other hobbies include old movies, Agatha Christie mystery books, karaoke, whale-watching and exploring the Oregon coast, and playing D&D with friends.
