Miss Ginsu: About/Bio

 

Yes, you really do want this.

Would a ceviche in the light of bright day tickle the palate so sweetly?

Presenting... the evening's hand-written menu, deftly snatched up and tucked away by my delightful dining companion.

Charmingly erratic capitalization and punctuation left intact. My own garden-variety dining annotation included.
