I am: quick, occasionally humorous, and always thinking. I'm not: tall or hip.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to carve out my own little chunk of happiness. Working, figuring it all out, having it all.
I’m really good at
Making ridiculous historical or pop cultural references, getting lost in almost any city, making fun of movies, making fun of anything, trivia, being competitive, making up third part harmonies, getting odd looks while I'm singing in the car.
The first things people usually notice about me
"She's so hot she's making me sexist." Probably. Definitely that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read a lot of nonfiction British history, because I am definitely not super dorky. Lately I've been reading more fiction. Ask me about what I'm reading if you're into Book Talk.
Movies: Rebecca, Fargo, Arsenic and Old Lace, the Young Victoria, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Vertigo, Moon, the Shining. I love "old movies" and/or anything with a "spooky atmosphere." Oh, and obviously I like "quotation marks."
TV: Mad Men, Monty Python's Flying Circus, 30 Rock, Downton Abbey, Are You Being Served?, the Vicar of Dibley, the IT Crowd, Spaced, Lost, Parks and Recreation, Fargo (Season 2 is really enjoyable. Season 1 was a bit of a dud for me.), Kids in the Hall, various lowbrow reality competition shows.
Music: ELO, the Mamas and Papas, the Beatles, Harry Nilsson, Bob Dylan, most things 60s/70s, Travis, Elbow, Keane, and most things really.
*note: right now I, like the rest of the known pop cultural universe, am obsessed with the Hamilton soundtrack so.... there's that.
The six things I could never do without
Thinking, laughing, my family, sight, hearing, sleep. Blah blah, I
guess I could probably do without most things in a purely
survivalist sense. I'd be uncomfortable and bored, but meh.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why it seems like everyone in the grocery store line is explicitly there to slow me down.
On a typical Friday night I am
Basking on the glory of not having to go to work on Saturday.
You should message me if
Ok, for some reason based on my question/answers it says I'm conservative... That is wildly incorrect. But, the questions are pretty dumb, so... grains of salt and all that I suppose.
