I am pleased to be part of the resurrection of vaudeville. I'm a member of the Boston Circus Guild. Generally my acts are based on doing stuff with fire, but I want to start incorporating more sideshow, like glass walking and beds of nails. I have interesting insurance.
I quit smoking seven years ago. Maybe the most disappointing thing about being an ex smoker is that I don't look quite so much like Spider Jerusalem.
My favorite thing on NPR is This American Life.
As a child I wanted to be a vampire when I grew up. Obviously, that hasn't worked out so well.
I love nature and the natural sciences in the Victorian way, meaning that I love things in bell jars and I'm fascinated with zoology and biology and the like. I'm not so keen on tromping about and getting the nature all over me.
I love long, hot showers.
As I'm quite fond of Victoriana, I like Steampunk too.
My venus flytrap is named Hibbert. He is a constant disappointment to me (compared to other venus flytraps). However, none of my other plants, carnivorous or otherwise, have names.
I'm completely uninterested in sports. I don't hate them, but the periodic aggravation caused me by hordes of drunken sports fans has left me with a pretty strong negative association. I do have a couple friends who enjoy all things sporting. I think they're weird.
