(Although in Canada we pronounce it 'aboot'.)

Dinah Gogina - \'dī\nə\-\gō\ˈjī-nə\ n. Rhymes with china vagina. A pseudonym for a nearly-40 mom who works full time and sporadically blogs. And I mean sporadically.

How Dinah Gogina got her name

I live in the Fraser Valley (just outside Vancouver) on the west coast of BC with my husband and daughter.

When I'm not crunching numbers at work I'm most likely loafing at the computer or opening the fridge to see if something magically appeared since the last time I looked (it never does but you never know). I should probably stop that. I love red wine and dark chocolate. I also love dairy products but they don't love me back.
