I love tween girls and their unjaded, I-can-do-anything attitude that can disappear the second pimples pop up on their noses. I've been a Secretary at Honeywell (remember them?), Treasurer of a Political Action Committee (I was way too young to take full advantage of all the fun I could have had with that one) and VP of Sales at USA TODAY. I loved all my careers, but the best one is the one I discovered in the second half of my life... Founder of AK Tweens and AllyKatzz.com, the safe social networking site for tween girls... and being crowned "Tween Girl Expert" because I get to be forever "12" minus the pimples.

This Makes My Teeth Itch
When the dog walker wants to talk to me for 30 minutes about how much he loves dogs. If I had 30 minutes, I'd walk the dog.
