Me is too big a question to answer all at once. I've been accused
of being cute, funny, charming, kind.. but I like to think that's
all just propaganda. I read too much, will talk with anyone about
anything, and will probably update this summary a dozen times
before I know what I really want to say.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on 2 big projects, 2 small ones and trying to teach myself
Russian. Eventually I'll get back to writing the novel that's been
trapped in my head for 3 years.
I’m really good at
Late night conversations about the mysteries of the universe and
the human condition. I'm also really good at making people feel at
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. I wish it was something else, I really do. People tell me
I have beautiful eyes, and I am always tempted to reply with "Gee,
thanks, I'll tell my mother you like them." They're genetic, I had
nothing to do with them.
... hm.. Maybe the first thing people notice about me is that I'm
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books... I read anything I can get my hands on. But to narrow that
list a bit. David Eddings is a genius, and I've recently discovered
a brilliant writer named Patrick Rothfuss (He's from Wisconsin).
I'm also madly in love with Mikhail Bulgakov.
Movies.. Shaun of the Dead, What Dreams May Come, Powder, and
Independence Day. And about 2 dozen more favorites, and hundreds
I'd watch again if I had the chance. I like foreign films and
usually think comedies are more stupid than funny. It's always nice
when one surprises me.
TV Shows.. I don't watch much TV. But Walking Dead on AMC is
Music.. Very eclectic tastes, my iPod freaks people out. Usually
it's a very good kind of freak out, like "Oh wow, where'd you find
this obscure gypsy cellist!" Classical, Jazz, World beats, really
anything that fits the mood.
Food.. Indian, Good Chinese, Sushi, Mexican, Italian, Soups my
mother used to make. I like variety, I'm not a meat and potatoes
The six things I could never do without
Books, Green spaces, Great conversations, The smell of fresh brewed
coffee, The feel of the sun on my face. And the random phone calls
from my daughter when she's seeking advice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Russian spelling tests. No really... Those are hard!
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late, then watching a movie, laughing with friends, and
playing on the computer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That enneagram test is wrong. I'm a type 5. There might be other
things I'd admit, but I'm selective with my audiences.
You should message me if
You have something interesting to say.
