Another yuppie ITP snob joins metblogs

Hi y’all. Abby here, new metblogs contributor, previous frequent commenter (see? you, too, can be an Author!). I’m a rabid reader of Atlanta food news; eat and drink out entirely too often for someone who loves to cook; am a regular (albeit totally fair-weather) bicycle commuter; live in Cabbagetown; work in Midtown; get mildly up in arms about state transportation and local crime issues; and think that Atlanta just needs a lil bit more transit, density, street food, bike cops, and beaches. Also have a penchant for the parenthetical and make too many lists.

I grew up in the Atlanta burbs and am still a little bitter about it, to the point that my coworkers know that it’s going to take a serious draw for me to meet them anywhere north of 14th. I grew up with a big Cajun family and am really, really picky about gumbo. Went to New Orleans for school, came back to Atlanta 7 years ago, living downtown, on Ponce, and now in c-town. I do love this city, but it’s a love that has grown on me. Unlike everybody on the internets, I don’t have a blog, so my full online attention will be directed here! Hooray!

    You make “ITP Snob” sound like it’s a bad thing. :)

    Haha nah, not at all ;) I do venture otp on occasion, but like I said, it takes something seriously good. And I mean yuppie in the young(ish), urban, employed person sense of the word.
