Also, I keep remembering things and adding to this...
Now, on to the fun stuff:
I just moved to Louisville, and am looking forward to exploring my new city! Currently living in a 1905 Victorian shotgun house in the Portland area, which my friend Gill is redeveloping.
Sometimes I make myself laugh while walking down the street.
I'm compulsively honest and I'll always give you one of the olives in my martini.
I'm a geography geek. And a music geek. Oh, and a history geek. Ok, I am kind of a geek. But geeks are the new black.
My interests are eclectic, to say the least and range from having a serious case of wanderlust (I have every passport I have ever owned, including the one I shared with my mother, as an infant) to being a rather adventurous home cook to writing about film, music, sports and politics.
Baseball is as close as I get to religion, with Liverpool FC a very close second. That said, while I like sports, I don't watch them to the exclusion of most other things and I would never force them on anyone. At the end of the day, many other things are more important.
That said, I bet I could get you to at least appreciate both baseball and soccer.
Other things I am good at getting people to appreciate:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (NOT the movie), Everything else Joss, Babylon 5, Withnail & I, blue cheese, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Billy Bragg and a good martini.
I love to throw dinner parties.
I think my parents, for all their flaws, were amazing people. My mother passed away almost 7 years ago and in organizing her memorial and working as her literary executor, I feel like I got to know her all over again. And my dad? Words fail me. He was a singular individual.
I'm to the left of liberal. If you're anti-gay marriage or pro-death penalty, we're gonna have issues.
I think men should always dress appropriately (suits don't work in the woods and jeans don't work in Cannes) however, style is NOT "clothes deep." Either you got it, or you don't. I'd like to think I got it.
I love to cook and am serious about being an ethical omnivore. I need to know where my food comes from as often as possible.
My father was one of my heroes. 1 of the other 2 might shock you.
I travel every chance I get and will take you with me.
I take a lot of pictures (and used to develop them myself).
Oh, and when it comes down to it, I know you're going to be right most of the time. Guys are dumb.
And because we're dumb, we need a little help now and then and I don't have a problem accepting it. Mostly....
