I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

Bio Fail

I've been trying to write a short bio for Yahoo! Canada. All weekend.

Even though I often blog about my life, summing up who I am and what I do "all professional-like" has proven to be a tricky task. ("Tricky" as in "should be the plot of Mission: Impossible 5."

I read this aloud last night and realized that, no, this will not do:

Every day, from the comfort of her couch — "Don't worry, I put on pants," she claims — Nadine Kalinauskas writes good-news and lifestyle stories for Yahoo! Canada. In what she dubs "the least cynical writing career ever," she also writes dating advice for eHarmony and maintains her own blog, Nadine at Home.

Nadine has written about everything from celebrity footwear and entertainment gossip to lingerie news and wedding planning. The pop-culture junkie also endured a short stint as a trivia-question writer during which she learned way too much about soap-opera couples and Justin Bieber's tattoos. (You want her on your team on trivia night.)

When she's not at her computer, Nadine can be found testing Jamie Oliver recipes, wishing it were always Christmas, and naming inanimate objects.

She lives in Toronto with her husband, Matthew, and her piano named Doug.

Sigh. I'm doomed.
