My self-summary
Yikes! Put on the spot.

I'm good at shmoozing in person, promise.

New York Nutshell: 3+ years in Brooklyn, teacher-turned-grad-student. Bookworm, beer-drinker, loves discussing politics and other grown up thingz but could also push that aside some low-brow giggles.
What I’m doing with my life
Turning my brain into mush by cramming all the books ever into it.
I’m really good at
-functioning while jet-lagged, whistling, baking cornbread, wearing matching socks, and doing voices while reading stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
My soul-piercing blue eyes and my apple bottom jeans.

Or, probably that I'm a confident lady person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I have worked at a few bookstores over the years and my interest range has widened because of it. Ask me what I'm reading...I'm always in the middle
of something!

Movies: I'm sorry to all you film buffs, but I'm not picky. My favorite B-list horror movie is The Descent, if that tells you anything.

Shows: Breaking Bad. I'm just watching the X-Files.

Music: I do love some 90's hiphop, rap, and boom bap. De La Soul, Big Pun, and Nice & Smooth are being consistently played these days. Pete Philly and Perquisite, Tor, RJD2, Ratatat, and Girltalk make me tap my foot. Justin Timberlake. TI. Big Boi. Frank Ocean. Johnny Polygon.
St. Vincent, Cold Speck, Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell. Mountain Man, Glasser, The Tallest Man on Earth. Jose Gonzalez.
I think maybe one consistent genre that gets played in a variety of moods and times is Jazz. Nothing really past the 70's/80s though...lots of Ella, Django, Bill Evans, and the like.

Food: It's yummy.
The six things I could never do without
1. My passport (family lives overseas and I travel to see them a lot).
2. Clothing that makes me warm in the winter.
3. The kind of book that is so good the pages turn on their own
4. Creativity (not necessarily my own)
5.The feeling of Sunday morning laziness
6. More warm clothing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Maybe not thinking about anything in particular, but daydreaming a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Meh, I don't like this question. Check out this creepy thing I just saw: http://www.wired.com/2014/09/ahhh-baby-no/#slide-id-1507801
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me the difference between a sheep and a goat and I will need to pause before I answer. Always, without fail, I need a moment to think.
You should message me if
You're not trying to be the coolest person ever. You're genuine and kind.

Social justice is yer thing.

Making dinner and playing scrabble sounds like an excellent [third or fourth, not first] date to you.

You're not going to send me this message or any other similar terrible message:
"My left leg is Christmas , my right leg is New Year's Eve ... Why don't you visit me in between ?​" <---actual message I received recently.........
