Cynthia is an avowed news, music and pop culture junkie. Born at Walter Reed Army Hospital, Cynthia loves calling the Connecticut shoreline home. Cynthia says she enjoys spending her Sunday afternoons on WEBE because the music and the people make it fun. For Cynthia, life is about living and being a great mom to her son, John. To quote one of her favorite songs (Faith Hill's "The Secret of Life") she believes: "The secret of life is gettin' up early...the secret of life is stayin' up late. The secret of life is try not to hurry, but don't wait." She's not.
Favorite song EVER: Don Henley - Boys of Summer

A double bill of Loverboy and Billy Idol...somewhere around 1982/83

Do you play an instrument?
I used to play the piano when I was a kid...does that count? I sing a mean 'concert for one' in my car.

Anything from Monty Python, Mel Brooks or John Hughes; The Quiet Man, The Color Purple, The Commitments, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Full Metal Jacket, The Green Mile, Idiocracy
Just about anything from BBC America, History Channel, Nat Geo, Food Network or HGTV; Walking Dead, Grey's Anatomy. I watch the Twilight Zone marathon EVERY year.
Do you have guilty pleasures?
Reality TV and I DVR "The Bold & the Beautiful" every day (I think of both as 'mental cotton candy.')

Moonshine. Yes, you read that right.

Cooking, BBQ, Photography, Volunteering, Adventure Racing (Rugged Maniac, Warrior Dash, the Spartan, I made it halfway through the Tough Mudder in 2012), Food adventuring (know of any good game dinners?), mediation and reading books (the ones with paper).
San Diego Chargers (my hometown team - will love them forever), maybe the Houston Astros (In part because I'm still mad at the Padres over the strike in '81)
