About me

SONYA: Resident of the DMV…and my incessant thoughts. Always hungry. Comedy craver. Ice cream freak. Reality TV show junkie. Slightly opinionated. Rarely wrong. Part Lisa Simpson. Part Sue Sylvester. Part Meredith Grey. Renowned chef and baker…avid gardener…pet lover…sometimes liar. Effortlessly forgetful. Always hungry. Blindly hopeful. Easily embarrassed (NOT). Eerily observant. Searching for something. Disregarding parallelism. Chronically tardy. Ruthlessly impatient. Surprisingly affectionate. Unnecessarily long-winded.

To learn more about me and my blog, check out my very first post In the beginning… and also Sonya’s Favorite Things – Part 1. You can also follow me on Twitter: @foolishmagnet and Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/magnetforfoolishness.

And I welcome feedback. As long as it’s nice. magnetforfoolishness@gmail.com

  1. Alright, I’m a fan. But I’m fan for totally narcissistic reasons- if it weren’t for the “Renowned chef and baker” part, I’d think we’re probably the same person. Looks like you’re just a few months in; so I’m subscribing now so I can say, I ‘knew’ her when…


  2. So Sonya, i gather from what you’ve said, that you’re all things to all men and possibly women, kids and animals too.
    You’re the world girl!!..

    Great blog! I love the name also. I find a lot of similarities in myself. (Unfortunately though it’s sometimes me who initiates the foolishness.Ha!)
    Kudos on your blog and Bon Courage!

    Hi! I’m Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a diet/fitness app and online website. I found your blog today and it captured my interest!

    I’m contacting you b/c we’re about to release a fitness tracker (similar to FitBit) early next year, and are looking for bloggers who would be interested in getting 1 for free to review when it is out (negative or positive).

    Would you be interested in doing this? You can email me at: sue (at) slimkicker (com) with ‘Review’ in the email heading if you are.

    For your info, our online website SlimKicker basically turns your diet/fitness goals into a fun level-up game. The tracker will work in conjunction the website, and allow people to track calories burned and number of steps they walk automatically. The more they exercise, the more points they rack up! That’s basically how it will work.

    Anyway, hope to hear back either way…

    – Sue

    • Ok so a whopping 1.5 years later, I’m just now reading your message. I’m sure you’ve finished the first (and probably the second, and third…) phases of your project. But if there are still opportunities to assist with this initiative, I’m interested in learning more about them. Please advise.
