Relatively sane. Sometimes weird (but who isn't really?). Inconveniently indecisive. But definitely love pork, wine, and coffee. Sometimes my North Carolina shows, usually when I am drunk, and I am no stranger to drunkenness. I say dang, holy moly, and geez louise, seriously. Not that I avoid the hard stuff... But sometimes in the middle of a serious curse filled rant, I throw in a show stopping "DANG!" I find that more embarrassing than the profanity I sometimes spew. Cannot take a good picture to save my freaking life, but pretty cute, if I do say so myself...
Back in NYC after a lovely vacation to Charleston. Can I have a vacation once a month?
What I’m doing with my life
I have a super intense job that I love. I love my job... a lot. I'm
in the restaurant business and therefore have lots of opinions
about dining and service, etc. My job is my life... You cannot be
I’m really good at
Getting riled up about something that probably shouldn't rile
anyone up... and then ranting about it. I love ranting... Also,
crossword puzzles. bad trivia. sitting at bars. lists. making you
laugh when you really don't want to. Giving opinions. And also
listening without giving opinions. And laughing... Sometimes
inappropriately. Actually often inappropriately...
The first things people usually notice about me
Short hair. Big eyes. Arms akimbo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
One Hundred Years of Solitude, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Master
and Margarita, The His Dark Materials trilogy, The Secret History.
I love reading Murakami until the end... Why are his endings so
unsatisfying? I have been a terrible reader the last few years...
I'm working on fixing that.
Annie Hall, When Harry Met Sally, Lost in Translation, Princess
Bride (your's too, I know). I will watch Shawshank Redemption any
time I see it from any point in the movie... Just saw Birdman,
Michael Keaton was genius.
Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, The Wire, Six Feet Under,
Community, Parks and Recreation, Seinfeld reruns, and though it
hasn't been good in so long... Grey's Anatomy. I need that show to
get cancelled so I can stop caring. I watch too much TV... Netflix
and I have a very serious relationship.
I listen to podcasts more than music these days... WTF, Savage
Love, This American Life, Serial (like everyone), just discovered
Trying to catch up... Jason Isbell has recently reminded me that I
do love Southern singer/songwriters. Constant loves include Wilco,
The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, The Beatles, Magnetic Fields, Rilo
Kiley, The Flaming Lips, Bon Iver, Stephen Malkmus, Pavement, but
always looking for something new. Might be able to admit that I am
possibly starting to kind of understand the appeal of cheesy pop
Everything. I love food. But really I love the experience of dining
out. My favorite moment of a meal (and it doesn't always happen) is
when the food is put on the table and no one speaks for minutes
because the world has ceased to exist outside of their mouths. I
love and hate being in restaurants. I am trying to get better at
enjoying dinners at home. But I really don't cook. Can, but don't.
The six things I could never do without
A good bottle of wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my job. can I go one more week without a haircut or will I just
look like a Beatle? Is this online dating thing worth it? Beach
vacation? What is the next restaurant I need to go to? Pay for TV?
Where will I get my next cup of coffee? When do I get to retire to
New Orleans? Or Nashville? Or some other Southern city... Where
should I visit next? my job. Beer or wine?
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking it easy after a long week... Or blowing off steam after a
long week. Or working. I really could be doing just about
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had a tarot card reader in New Orleans call me a "sensual witch."
He also told me he was trying to look up my skirt for the entire
reading, so... There's that.
You should message me if
You are interested in the possibility of connecting with another
person. Not looking for hook-ups, but you don't need to bring an
engagement ring along.
