making bad puns!
peeing in the woods
talking bob dylan
communicating/letting it all out
leading cheers at protests
(It's generally a turnoff when I see people with music/book/film tastes that are all white men.)
books: Ordinary People, Autobiography of Malcolm X, The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao, This Is How You Lose Her, The Toughest Indian in the World, The Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing, Middlesex, The Virgin Suicides (but NOT The Marriage Plot, we can talk about it), Beloved, Where the God of Love Hangs Out, Aloud: Poems from the Nuyorican Poetry Cafe, Love's Executioner, Cloud Atlas, Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies (apparently I love Thomas Cromwell)
plays: M. Butterfly, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Crucible, A Streetcar Named Desire, August: Osage County, Passing Strange, In the Heights
TV: arrested development, Glee, the sopranos, six feet under, the real l word, cooking channel and food network, jersey shore, double divas (i think this is on lifetime? oh god it's amazing: two atlanta women who own a lingerie shop, very feminist, body and sex positive, hilarious), duck dynasty, long island medium
food: Italian food is my go-to, for cooking and eating. While I am not Italian, I lived there for 3 months and it is officially my comfort food. Eggs of all sorts. Anything with tzatziki. Things cooked by Ina Garten and Jamie Oliver and Bobby Flay, key lime pie and generally anything with a graham cracker crust.
Also, if you haven't tried ajvar/pipiritsa, get on that!
a notebook/writing utensil
the classroom (whatever its form)
my dog, Moxie (who has sadly been left behind with my mom in NYC, so I guess I can do without him, but believe me it's rough/ruff)
There really needs to be more diversity in the "gender" and "sexual orientation" part of OKC. Well, I don't think about this a LOT but now that I'm back on the site, I'm going to be thinking of it every time I sign on!
I'm in the market for new friends just as much as romantic endeavors. Reach out for either reason. (A definite turn off is a one line message like "hey sexy" or "nice smile." If this is your style, probs best to try someone else).
