My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Elvis Costello absolutely had me in mind when he wrote these lyrics:

She's the sweetest and the sauciest
The loveliest and the naughtiest
She's Miss Buenos Aires in a world of lacy lingerie

However, I was never Miss Buenos Aires. I did compete in the Miss San Gennaro Festival by singing "Volare" Alex Chilton style! And lost.

As you can tell, I'm clever and have impeccable taste in music. And I'm fearless enough to sing offkey in Italian in front of a crowd of drunken old men.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mild-mannered music industry worker by day... crimefighter by night! I really should have been a 1960s gal detective or spy. Instead, I fill my non-working days and nights going to dive or tiki bars, record and vintage shopping, hiking, doing Pilates or ballet or road tripping. I belong to the Los Angeles Conservancy and am hoping to volunteer with the Art Deco Society. I also have goal of going on every Esotouric offered.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding adventure and finding trouble.

I'm a fabulous cook (especially Italian), but also a fabulous restaurant-goer. I'm a great hiker, as I pack plenty of snacks and have never gone missing in Griffith Park. I'm a pop-culture geek who will kick your ass at Trivial Pursuit and Rock & Roll Jeopardy, and am a gracious loser who will smile when accepting the stale prawn crisps at Fox & Hound's quiz night.

I am the reigning champion of KISS Mini-Golf (and I don't even like KISS) and am undefeated (17 rounds) of Connect Four at Tony's Darts Away.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'd like to say my dazzling smile or astonishing intellect, but I think my legs make the first impression, as they're usually clad in fishnets. Actually, it's my mouth, or what comes out of it. I'm a bit sassy and sarcastic. My rapier wit can be used for good or evil.

I love to curl up with true crime novels, pulp fiction and old Hollywood biographies. Of course, my James Cain, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandlers share the shelves with Jane Austen. I refuse to buy e-books, as I'm tactile and honestly prefer to pour over dusty stacks lorded over by a cat. I can't wait to start poring over The Kept Girl, which is based on Chandler and true events. More so, I'm working on my first novel. Non-fiction. Truth is stranger than fiction.

I'm addicted to film noir, especially Double Indemnity, along with nearly anything with Humphrey Bogart or Robert Mitchum. I also love dark comedies and have no shame in admitting my guilty pleasure viewing is Ladies And Gentlemen The Fabulous Stains or Valley Girl. Other favorites include Sunset Boulevard, Breakfast At Tiffany's, Sixteen Candles, Heathers, Roadside Prophets, Foxes, Gregory's Girl, The Man With The Golden Arm, Suburbia, Teresa's Tattoo, Office Space, In A Lonely Place, Maltese Falcon, The Usual Suspects, Whatever Happened To Baby Jane?, The Sentinel (the 1970s horror film, not the action flick), Happiness, Sid & Nancy, Starstruck ( the '80s Aussie flick, not the Disney one), Dream For An Insomniac, Night Of The Comet, An Education, Waterloo Bridge (the remake) and Atonement.

I'm trying to watch as little television as possible, unless it is educational or culturally enriching. I'm trying to rationalize It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia reruns into that paradigm. Currently watching The Strain and Intruders while awaiting the return of Revenge and Downton Abbey. Also curious if Gracepoint will hold up to Broadchurch, but that's probably a conversation best accompanied with a pint.

I seem to lean toward a lot of garage, mod, Northern Soul and Eurotrash music, but my tastes are pretty eclectic. Looking forward to seeing Belle & Sebastian, Lily Allen, Spoon, Afghan Whigs and New Pornographers and I'm hoping to score a Jake Bugg ticket.

I love sushi, dim sum, Devil Dogs, bread, seafood, pasta and pie. I recently discovered fish tacos are not whole little fishies with head and bone intact and are quite delicious (not from SoCal, can you tell?). But nothing can compare to the simplistic deliciousness of a bacon-wrapped hot dog... except maybe a lamb burger from Alcove or my latest obsession: Mouls et frites.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Record collection (and my boxes of cassettes to go with my Sony Walkman that still works and is much more waterproof than an iPhone)
Lip gloss
My Shaun Cassidy doll. The guitar is a secret message decoder!
Double-stick tape (you never know)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
that my first kiss was to "This World Over" by XTC and what the soundtrack will be for my next one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hitting happy hour or hiking. Occasionally UCB.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I was kicked out of cheerleading camp for wearing a Dead Kennedys tee shirt.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are spontaneous, thoughtful, intelligent and funny. If you are driven* and accomplished, but don't take yourself too seriously.

*By driven, I mean assertive and goal oriented. Not squired about by Uber or previous girlfriends. Please have a car and a valid driver license.

You like to take architecture tours, spend weekends at Pappy & Harriet's or Joshua Tree Inn, or just actually leave your apartment.

Also, having an in for Ride reunion tickets for NY or London wouldn't hurt...

Please do not message if you are under 30 and looking for a cougar. Also, please stay away if you are a vegan who judges one's decision to eat meat or wear leather. Telling a woman she'd "be more attractive if she didn't consume animal flesh" isn't really a charming icebreaker. However, if you do know of a soy ricotta cheese substitute, let me know!
