Cultivating new interests (when I dive in, I go deep--sometimes "research" deep).
Strategizing/planning (details, details, details . . . I'm good at getting you in line).
Cuddling (don't message me if you are not advanced at snuggling).
Expressing myself in print (not making much of a case for myself here, I realize, but not interested in posturing as super 'quippy & cool'--feels a bit unapproachable to me).
Conversation. I find everyone interesting (note to poseurs & ego maniacs: you are fascinating, but I'll only read about you ;) .
Matchmaking: books & the people who will love them.
Loving and appreciating the people in my life; told I'm quite a good friend.
Overusing parentheses (and no longer feeling self-conscious about it).
Don't spend much time watching television, but old favorites are as follows: Charlie Rose (god, what I'd give to be his water glass--or the guest glass); Keeping Up Appearances (British humor--often superior); Twin Peaks; & BTVS.
Movies: Up for anything and enjoy most, though I'll say I'm happiest with indie films and local theaters. Did my 1st Music Box of Horrors in 2012--made it 18 hours straight (nope, didn't even 'rest my eyes'). For some reason, the imagery from 'The Beyond' is still stuck. Planning another attempt. (UPDATE: missed it twice -- but on the 2015 calendar).
Radio: NPR junkie (Sound Opinion, Wait Wait, TAL, Bob Edwards Weekend, Prairie Home Companion--look, I'm a nerd of sorts, & happy that way), but my forever fav is RadioLab (you are men after my own heart, Jad & Robert).
Music: Pretty open here, but my crush for the last few years is Joan As Policewoman. Fun fact: Didn't plan on it, but I have a favorite opera! Love Lyric's Next student tixs.
& I take The New Yorker and Mental Floss (did you know octopuses can run?!?).
How can I read all these books before I die? I can't choose!
Why is "Hip to Be Square" omitted from Huey Lewis & The News' greatest hits album?
Smudged my glasses again, already?
Or, very soon, hope to be enjoying evening pool hours in the setting sun, with cooling temps and a well-disguised glass of wine in hand (shhhh -- libations not allowed on deck).
Okay, fine. I own both seasons of Pee Wee's Playhouse including the Playhouse Xmas special. It's art, okay. Really. It is. Even PBS agrees: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/beauty-is-embarrassing/film.html
Closeted romantic. Would still like to meet someone special and learn to take care of one another.
Listening to 87.7 MeTV FM makes me smile.
And . . . sometimes I still buy compact discs.
You have loved an animal.
You live in Chicago or somewhere quite nearby.
You make mistakes.
You know how to apologize.
You agree: West Side Story? Most uncomfortable musical ever.
You find this kinda wonderful:
