I'd rather watch Die Hard than The Notebook. I never close
cabinets. I rarely twist the cap all the way shut. I squeeze the
toothpaste from the middle instead of the bottom. I take my shoes
off in the middle of the room and leave them there. I haven't made
my bed since I was in grade school. You will probably find my hair
attached to your clothes.
I love a guy who loves cats.
I'm an atheist (actually, a secular humanist, but few people know
what that is, so I usually just say atheist). I get a lot of
messages on this site from people who are clearly religious. It's
not that I have a problem with you, but you'll probably have a
problem with me.
I smoke pot every day (I like to tell people that my life is a Dr.
Dre album). I eat mushrooms every now and then. For some reason, a
lot of people think that "behavior" should have stopped by my age,
but it hasn't, and it probably won't any time soon. I rarely drink
more than a glass or two of wine. So I don't really "party" and I'm
not your typical drugged out loser. I'm more high-functioning than
any sober person you know.
I'm originally from Los Angeles and I go home often. I hope to live
there again one day.
What I’m doing with my life
I just started my Master's thesis (on Haruki Murakami, if you
care), so... writing writing writing. Heading to Japan in August to
do some "research" (which is mostly just a rationalization, let's
I write fiction (though not right now--see last sentence), and I've
been trying to get a final draft of my novel done for going on a

I'm a damn good home cook
I make the best mixed CDs ever. It usually takes me a week or two
because I really try to customize it for the person I'm making it
for, and I'll listen to hundreds of songs before I come up with a
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure. Probably my crazy hair, which has a mind of it's
If I'm wearing sandals or heels or something with no socks, I
notice that people tend to look at/read the tattoos on my feet
while trying to look like they're not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I hate questions like these because I don't think compatibility has
anything to do with book/music taste. I know enough douchebags with
good taste in music. Sure, similar interests are always a plus, but
I'm looking for good people, not good bands.
That being said, I really like music festivals.
The six things I could never do without
I think I could probably learn to live without most of the things
I've grown attached to, but here's some things that I really

If I'm in LA, I'm probably out with friends.
If I'm in SD, I'm probably watching Bill Maher.

I have a total straight-girl crush on Rachel Maddow
