My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
More Abbi than Ilana.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a dabbler at heart, and love to learn new things - in the past few years, I've taken classes ranging from glassblowing to sixties-style go-go dancing, fiddle playing to hula-hooping, bread baking to burlesque. I've built up a nice little network of friends through these pursuits, and now I run into people I know all over town! When I moved here years ago, not knowing anybody, I never would have guessed that would be the case.

I'm a non-practicing lawyer - which I guess means that I solve puzzles, argue a little bit, and leave at 5.

Mmm, what else. I'm a 3-season bike commuter (once the snow hits, I wuss out), a sometime beer nerd (who isn't these days?) and I've got my act together (pretty much).

Let's talk about you...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Staying curious.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some of my all-time favorite books are Patti Smith's Just Kids, Jennifer Egan's A Visit from the Goon Squad (a must-read for scenesters of all stripes) and Madame Bovary (it's a classic, obviously, but it's also a surprisingly engaging read). Just finished a book of Tom Perrotta short stories and currently reading Jeffrey Eugenides' The Marriage Plot (don't be scared, it's not an instruction manual).

I have a terrible attention span for movies, but this year I really liked Grand Budapest Hotel, Obvious Child, They Came Together, Dear White People, Inherent Vice, and Whiplash. (Once I'm in the theater, I'm OK, but I always get distracted watching at home. Too many shiny things and flashing lights...)

I just started rewatching Twin Peaks - just as bizarre as I remembered! And I like my Sunday evening cable dramas - ideally, I'll be pulling some roasted deliciousness out of the oven just as Homeland or Mad Men comes on.

Puttering in the kitchen is one of my favorite ways to spend a wintry Sunday afternoon. Like any urbanite worth their fleur de sel, I like trying new restaurants too - sometimes a fancy place like 42 grams or Elizabeth, but usually I'm just out hunting the perfect burger. (I'm pretty sure it's at Au Cheval.)

Music could be a category all its own - I'm pretty obsessive. Some of my favorite shows last year were Sturgill Simpson, Nick Cave, Slowdive and Zola Jesus - and Riot Fest was an old punk's dream! Only a few shows on the books for 2015 so far: the Empty Bottle's Music. Frozen., Matthew E. White, Jenny Lewis, and Father John Misty. I feel my tastes stagnating a bit, so if you have any suggestions for bands to check out, I'm all ears! (Siiiiigh....terrible pun, womp)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
red lipstick, paperbacks, Spotify, running water, dogs and gluten.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
feeling quite lazy, but occasionally rallying to meet friends for bourbon and good conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't think I'm terribly good at...this. *gestures vaguely at OkC*

Even private-er? I don't care if I get good at this, as long as I get to meet some cool people along the way.

you're living an equally full, satisfying life and are ready to (try to) carve out some shared space in it.
