I am a visual artist in many ways -- graphic designer professionally, but also a fairly accomplished amateur photographer. (Slowly trying to go pro.) I used to do pottery, and still make jewelry & have a lot of interest in interior decorating & in general just making my life visually interesting.
I'm a pretty accomplished cyclist -- I'm not super fast racing material, but I can ride for long distances & generally do pass most people on the bike trail.
I tend to read fiction mostly -- some favorite authors are Barbara Kingsolver, Christopher Moore, Bill Bryson, etc -- but I am constantly looking for great books & usually have several going at once. A few all-time favorite novels:
The Bean Trees - Barbara Kingsolver
The Princess Bride - William Goldman (yep, the one the movie was based on -- if you loved the movie, you'll love the book even more!)
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer (INCREDIBLE - poignant, quirky, funny, amazing)
The Sparrow - Mary Doria Russell (an incredible sci-fi / spiritual / sociological novel - ask me to tell you about it later. MUST READ.)
The Harry Potter books (Yep, really. Read them three times. If you have a problem with that, we probably won't get each other. :} )
Favorite movies -- Pixar can do no wrong, I love them ALL. Other faves include Field of Dreams, The Guru, Waking Ned Devine, Cinema Paradiso, Sound of Music (hey, it's a classic! and I'm a singer!). I like everything from comedies, to drama, to foreign films -- not big on slashers & violent films in general are tough for me.
TV - lately, into How I Met Your Mother. Also a fan of Project Runway (my only reality tv vice, although I occasionally get sucked into the singing shows). And of course I love Glee! Because, duh, I'm a singer! :) The Firefly series was awesome, and loved Star Trek TNG back in the day. Will & Grace, Ugly Betty, Friends...etc.
Food -- I'm a vegetarian, but within that framework will eat pretty much any cuisine! (I find that French & seafood restaurants rarely have much to offer me, but I do well most other places. Except for, you know, steakhouses. ;} ) Particularly love ethnic foods -- sometimes I think I could almost live on Indian & Thai alone.
Great food (I'm not a total foodie, but love to cook, entertain, & eat)
My amazing family and friends
My beautiful, spunky daughter
I've also been thinking lately about how I really don't fit into any boxes. I have pink hair, but I'm not a punk rocker. I'm not a geek or a nerd, but I'm not a hipster, either. I'm bubbly, but also down to earth. Sometimes I feel like I don't fit in anywhere, and sometimes I feel like I fit in everywhere. I guess I just defy definition. :)
