My self-summary
On weekends, excitement sparks up for me sometime in the early afternoon, when I've burned a new scar onto my forearm, and given the smoke alarm a fresh scare. Maybe I should be better at this: Julia is well-worn and dog eared right next to Mom's Joy of Cooking; Poor David Chang has had his spine broken since last year, held up by a half empty bottle of whiskey and bell jars stained by pickle juice; between the flour sifter and the pie weights, I have all of the useless equipment one needs to truly master basic baking.

Maybe I’m distracted. My friends are usually around reading the paper, and we’ve been working our way through hard cheeses and soft bubbles all afternoon. If it’s sunny, we are probably somewhere between dim sum and second lunch, so nap time is probably near.

To be honest, I’m probably not going to make it out to the bars, Bright Lights be damned. I turned eighty sometime during my sophomore year of college, and make no apologies for it.
What I’m doing with my life
Ping pong. I'm into it. Not because I'm good at it. I'm not. But I think I might be soon. In fact, its on my list of things that I should kick butt in -- like going to the Olympics for karate (yes, I know it's not an Olympic sport, but I'm not at the Olympic level anyway so it's fine). And singing karaoke, which I have never done in my entire life. Oh, I've gone -- I go all the time. My friends are great at it, and, you know, I want to fit in.
I’m really good at
I built a fish pond on my patio. Now, this sounds impressive, and I mean it to as it was a lot of effort. Unfortunately, when people find out that my pond is just a big planter filled with water and two goldfish, there tends to be a bit of a let down. But come on guys, I have pond in the east village. It's a little awesome.

Update: My original goldfish passed under unfortunate circumstances. The replacement fish ran away from home. I'm looking for a new hobby.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
After being raised by wolves on Staten Island I was left tone deaf and color blind. Thankfully congenital homosexuality has corrected most of those deficiencies over time, but my cultural and artistic choices are often brought to question.

I'm in a book club (blush) and a little concerned that my favorite books have all started with dead people resting on beds of plush, beautiful writing: Let the Great World Spin (Callum MCallun); Tinker (Paul Harding); Being Dead (Jim Crace); The Bridge of San Luis Ray (Thornton Wilder). I loved Patti Smith's "Just Kids", but Robert doesn't die until the end, so I put that in a different category. And Cormac McCarthy's books too -- people die all over the place, so its like an action flick; completely different.

Much to the despair of all my friends, I am simply unable to pick a movie that doesn't include a $100M budget and ungodly amounts of explosions. I think my more sophisticated choices have been Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, and The Incredibles. Yes, they are cartoons. I know. But so good!

I still love almost anything by Almodovar or Kubrick or Miyazaki, and occasionally stumble across tasteful work. I just saw Amour; good grief, that's why I watch kid's flicks.

My music collection is where people really start to wince. Somewhere between First Aid Kit and Perfume Genius I'm declared a suicidal lesbian. I still think Bob Dylan and Nina Simone are edgy.

Food. Now that is serious stuff. I've undertaken the responsibility to eat everything delicious in NYC, and to do it frequently. I really like wearing bow ties at restaurants with lots of Michelin stars, but I like it more when there is a secret amazing food court in the basement of a cracked out Flushing mall where nobody speaks English.
