Meet Olive. She is a 28 year old librarian from Portland, Oregon who enjoys baking shortbread, drinking black coffee and reading the newspaper. She is a fierce realist, but never comes across as harsh because she has a penchant for wearing fuzzy sweater twin sets from the 1960s. Olive likes to wear sensible shoes, because she walks to work and thinks they make people take her seriously.
If you haven't yet noticed, Olive is actually me wearing a pair of cat-eye glasses. I bought them at an antique store last summer, and sadly never got around to getting prescription lenses put in them. But you bet that once I do, Olive will be making a comeback.
