That being said, I would be delighted to get out of my work bubble and meet totally awesome people who don't necessarily do what I do for a living.
*teaching--I love figuring out how each of my students learn
*putting together Ikea furniture. Give me a bottle of wine, some particleboard with pre-drilled holes, and a set of wordless directions and I'm in heaven
*Making those old-timey, prohibition era cocktails
I guess you'd have to ask them...?
This stuff makes me tick. Here is a compendium--in no particular order--of music that gets me hot and bothered:
The Kinks, The Pixies, The Stones, The Smiths, The Talking Heads, Brian Eno, Robyn Hitchcock, The Breeders, Roxy Music, The Who, Stevie Wonder, the Boss (ever since I turned 30--who knows why) Todd Rundgren, Nico, The Velvet Underground, Captain Beefheart, Bill Evans, Steely Dan (used to be ironic--can't really say that so much anymore), Mahler, Benjamin Britten, Neil Young, David Bowie, Joy Division, Otis Redding, Paul Simon, Tōru Takemitsu, The Magnetic Fields, Tears for Fears, Elton John, Nina Simone, Prokofiev, Fleetwood Mac (especially Stevie Nicks' songs), Donovan, Frank Zappa, Piazzolla, Charles Mingus, Black Sabbath, Jim O'Rourke, blah blah blah...
I end up reading too many books at once. And because of this, slowly. Some authors I love: Jeffery Eugenides, Julian Barnes, Michael Chabon, Oliver Sacks, David Sedaris, Billy Collins. I've also got a lot of New Yorkers lying around but usually only manage to read the movie reviews consistently.
My #1 hobby--both cooking it myself and dining out. A red letter evening is one involving a splurge on a good tasting menu. I love Spanish, French, Italian, Greek, Thai, Middle eastern, and Indian food. I do not love Chinese food. I like what's good and sometimes what's good are vanilla mini cupcakes from the Safeway.
I take my coffee black and my Martinis with gin.
Annie Hall, Broadcast News, Flirting with Disaster, Withnail and I, Walkabout, MASH, 80's Brat Pack stuff, Bringing Up Baby, I Heart Huckabees, The Last Picture Show, Adam's Rib, The Philadelphia Story, The Women, Almost Famous, Before Sunrise, Manchurian Candidate, Rushmore, Rear Window, Tootsie, Waiting for Guffman.
The Hour, Slings and Arrows, The Wire, Party Down, Arrested Development, Freaks and Geeks, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, So You Think You Can Dance, 30 Rock, Twin Peaks, Friday Night Lights, Downton Abbey, Parks and Rec, Kids in the Hall, The State, Blackadder, Fashion Police (guilty pleasure).
Other things I heart:
*Animals. My mom was the president of one of the SPCA's in Philly and I grew up with a menagerie.
*I have a nice little vinyl collection which began when my Cool Uncle bequeathed some pretty great 60/70s albums to me when I was a kid
*I have very little shame when it comes to dancing/singing in public even though I'm probably not very good at either of these things. My karaoke stylings range from David Bowie to Tears For Fears to the Beastie Boys.
*Someday I want to visit the following places: Spain, San Sebastien, Provence, Alaska, Melbourne, Indonesia, and Vietnam
*The Phillies; I root for them like a good native of the city of brotherly love
*Hiking/camping in the great outdoors. Other than this I'm not super active (no, I will probably NOT go running with you, just to be clear) and I pretty much suck at most sports except for shuffleboard, but I will get bloodthirsty over a game of Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit.
the snooze button
free podcasts while driving
my sweet but neurotic dog and my two adorable (and sometimes asshole) cats
and a close 7th: the cut-and-paste function (I'm lazy)
Whatever music I performed last week. It swims around in my head relentlessly until the next one gets lodged in there and replaces it.
Crossword clues I can't solve
*I'm a night owl, although it doesn't always jive with my job or the rest of the world for that matter. When left to my own devices I get super productive at about 1am and then completely loose track of time.
*In my secret life, I sometimes sing back-up in a Steely Dan cover band. I realize this is perhaps more than just a little embarrassing. It sure is fun though.
Bonus: if you look, or can croon, like Bryan Ferry circa the early 1970's, please please message me immediately.
