In the long run, I want to do theatrical lighting design. These days, I'm bouncing around the city being a techie extraordinaire. I spend a bunch of time on ladders trying to herd electrons, or bouncing photons into people's eyes. It's a fun job. Sometimes I have to wear a harness, so you know it's got to be pretty good!
Outside work, I play hearts, see theater, fiddle around with numbers and words, and cook.
My favorite word that I've found so far? Menagerie.
I make an excellent Sweet Potato and Ginger soup. I also mash an excellent potato.
Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Neal Stephenson, Haruki Murakami, Stephen Pinker... Orson Scott Card when he isn't crazy.
Books: The Sunne in Splendour, Next of Kin, Pedro Paramo, House of Spirits, 1984, Seven Daughters of Eve, Brights Passage (If you want to talk about that last one, so do I! I need me a book club...)
Brazil, Fantasia, A Fish Called Wanda, Snatch, The Impostors, 10 Things I Hate About You
Community, The Wire, Firefly, Arrested Development, Red Dwarf, Terriers, Spaced, Battlestar Galactica
Josh Ritter is basically my heart, but with facial hair and a guitar. Which is a kind of grizzly image when taken literally.
Other favorites: Belle and Sebastian, The Antlers, Owen Pallett, Sunset Rubdown, Wild Beasts, Tallest Man on Earth, Shearwater, Fleetwood Mac, Simon and Garfunkel,
For any world music fans, Alasdair Frasier and Natalie Haas have some jaw-dropping fiddle + cello arrangements. It's dizzying what they can do with just two instruments. Aaaa! On a similar note, East Wind by Andy Irvine and Davy Spillane is just thrilling. Top notch.
How? How does one pick? I will say that I didn't feel truly at home in the city until I found a place that sells Garam Masala. Scallions wind up in a *lot* of what I cook, and not just because I like saying, "Scallions!"
Also, and this is *not* an important thing to know about me: I don't like Jerusalem artichokes. I find it hard to express how deeply my hatred of jerusalem artichokes runs. I will tell you the story, if you ask.
I sometimes think about how mechanically, we're all marionettes. Bundles of levers and strings, rigged up very cleverly. Unlike the puppets, we're operated from the inside, and we're hung from our feet up, instead of our heads down. When I look at suspension bridges, I remember what it feels like to be on a ladder 18 feet in the air, holding a lighting instrument out at the end of reach. All that tension running across my arm, just the same as is running through the bridge's cables. I imagine what it would feel like to be a bridge. Probably like a *really* good stretch, all the time.
I have an unfortunate tendency to pun. I've recently been collecting drink names punning on famous published works. Examples:
Red Badge of Liquid Courage
The King Jameson's Imbible
The Wizard of 40 Oz.
Ethanol's Well that Ends Well.
Of Mice and Crème du Menthe
Bloody Mary Poppins
If any additions occur to you, I'd love to hear them.
It often strikes me that everybody is an ape, and we haven't forgotten how to behave like them. I say that with a lot of respect for apes. And people.
Or in with friends. Maybe playing board games.
Or, let's face it, in a theater pressing the 'GO' button at just the right time. Or swinging around a spotlight.
To the great wide internet... Hmm... The lesbian posse is partly responsible for this profile. Blame/praise will be shared accordingly.
Also, I'm usually pretty shy about being touchy/kissy with folks who haven't overtly invited it. I can't stand the thought of being invasive, so I wind up being a little overcautious to be sure I'm not.

You want to hear more literary-booze puns (oh believe me, there are more).
Something I said intrigued or enraged you.
You don't mind a man who is as feminist as you are. Unless you aren't at all feminist. I'm more feminist than that...
Or really, if you got a good vibe and want to see if it corresponds to good chats over coffee. I know a lot of tasty bruncheries...
Words of warning: Theater schedule gets crazy, and when I'm doing 15 hour days repeatedly, I tend to totally ignore this thing. Sorry if I take my time writing you back.
Also, I'm totally down to meet friends through this site (I've already made a few good friends on here), but if you write me, and I don't think I'll be interested in any sort of romantic whatever, I probably won't reply. If you want me to write you back because you think we'd be good buddies, and don't care too much about the kissing side of things, let me know.
