Rebecca Gallagher, or Frugie as her readers call her, is a mom, wife and self proclaimed middle-aged drama queen. Since no movie or stage will have her, she constantly uses every day life moments to capture the art of entertainment. Such as, spilling her tea down her shirt, tripping over the dog, running into doors, dancing in her own music videos. She writes on her humor blog, Frugalista Blog and has contributed to other parenting web sites as well. She will do anything for a croissant and hopes Daniel Craig will call her to be the next Bond girl. Rebecca is also a contributing author to the books I Just Want to Pee Alone and I Just Want To Be Alone (I Just Want To Pee Alone) Vol. 2.
