I arrived in Washingtontown in Spring '09, but nope, I'm not in politics! I am an activist to benefit all species, most certainly including people (I volunteered for a couple of years or so with Food Not Bombs, though it's been a while since I've been involved). I am serious and responsible when I need to be but like to enjoy "the kid in me" whenever I can get away with it. I am generous. I need a partner in this life; a partner in crime, as they say...a partner in fun, a partner in love, a partner in life. (Or best three out of five?) I'm a nurturer...with edge. I am vegan. I am Jewish in background and culture but *mostly* secular in practice. I have two formerly stray cats who are my loves. I am SO not a sports fan--playing or watching. (Hint if you want to start a conversation: Ask me how I broke my leg in a game of "Ultimate Frisbee." BUT, as you can see in my pics, I'm totally into OTHER outdoorsy activities!) I've got a biting wit, often sarcastic, often dorky, and, well, everything in between!
Also, after more than a decade in PR for an international nonprofit, involving calls to multiple media organizations within media markets in the United States and Canada on a daily basis, I have gotten really, really damned good at recognizing area codes from throughout. Try me!
Seriously, though...I'm short? I'm often sporting a full beard? (I like it, but it's ultimately unimportant and totally negotiable if you don't. :)
MOVIES: My favorite movie of all time is one that's based on a Parker Bros. board game--"Clue." Others include Back to School, The Grapes of Wrath, etc. More from the last few years, Role Models, Forgetting Sarah Marshall...
"Into the Wild" struck a chord. I may very well live happily in cities the rest of my life, but I kinda want to move to Alaska, actually. (And, yes, I *have* been there!)
TV: I'm kind-of addicted to MSNBC primetime on weeknights. There are also The Daily Show and Colbert Report, South Park, Bob's Burgers. Sometimes I check out The History Channel, and so on.
MUSIC: I love "modern rock," classic rock, old blues/folk (like, from around the 40s but even some earlier), etc. Favorite artists include Nirvana (<3 Kurt), generally older R.E.M., Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnston, much of what's on modern rock radio... I was a DJ at my college radio station and managed to define my show's "genre" to allow me to play all of this, playing "modern rock and it's influences." (I've also discovered that I hate some of my friends for having dragged me to so many Adams Morgan and other clubs that I actually--God help me--like some of that music, especially Ke$ha. Oy.)
I don't typically go to shows too frequently, but some awesome shows in the last couple of years included CHUCK fuckin' BERRY (his name has to be said that way; it's the law. No, seriously--it's one thing that both Boehner's House and Reid's Senate passed overwhelmingly, signed into law by Obama), Little Richard, Rise Against (at an annoyingly huge venue, but I was at least at the front), Anti-Flag (at the front of the small Rock n' Roll Hotel venue; there's nothing like being right up against the stage at a small venue!), Gaslight Anthem, I personally handed a drink to Thurston Moore while right up to the stage at the Black Cat...etc.
FOOD: Being that I am vegan, I clearly do not eat anything other than cardboard.
...that's a joke. I love Indian, Chinese, Thai, Mexican (or is it more Tex-Mex that I'm into...), Ethiopian, pastas, etc. Keep the "for-the-vegan" raw carrot and celery sticks away from me...I'm vegan; I'm not a RABBIT! I also love veganized American fare; 'veggie burgers' are fine but I'm speaking more about my awesome creamy mac n' cheeze, fried 'chikin,' etc. I like to do some moderate cooking. I don't want to give the impression that I'm an accomplished chef and I'll cook some multi-course meal for our third or fourth date or whatever, but...I like to tinker around.
I also can't figure out in what context it became a stylish, appropriate look to have a crease in one's slacks. WHY exactly is that supposed to look good, now...?
Here's a conversation starter--remember how I said above that I really dislike sports? Ask me how I managed to break my leg during a "non-contact" game of Ultimate Frisbee.
On a more serious level:
LONG-TERM: I really want to get married and raise a little Jewish family. I'd always figured I'd do that thing. I'm getting too old for this not-doing-that-thing thing. Let me know if that's something you're looking for, too, and...we'll take it from there?
SHORT-TERM: If you're not looking for the marriage/kids or otherwise serious/long-term thing, and I've still got this profile up with the pesky "Single" denotation, and you like what you see...by all means, send me a message!
