I'm sincere both in my self-deprecation and in my love of a good time. I mix the cerebral with the celebratory, mainly for my own entertainment. Though I may seem a tad less than gargantuan, do not be fooled. Beyond my raw, physical presence lies a cocktail conversationalist with a view to the kill. Think James Bond meets Willy Wonka meets Truman Capote, with some Rhoda Morgenstern for good measure. Well educated, frequently well inebriated, and sometimes well informed too. The execution is sometimes messy and often madcap, but always worth it.
What I’m doing with my life
Grad school, plotting my next move/look/sneer and writing, writing, writing. When not busy with the aforementioned, I can frequently be found analyzing, overanalyzing, or reading Proust and/or Valley of the Dolls.

I'll get to the music and food bit later. For now, suffice it to say that I like music and I love food.
