I believe that life is miraculous and every waking moment is a gift
filled with endless possibilities, and that you only have to walk
toward what you want. But, as a wise man once told me, when trying
to jump a chasm, try not to do it in two leaps.
I believe in compassion. I believe that having compassion for
others, showing empathy, and mercy, is the most endearing quality
that a human being can have, and that's what melts my heart.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm at a good place in my life, and looking forward to a new
I’m really good at
at making something out of nothing, I enjoy making art from found
objects, and I'm amazing at making shadow puppets. I'm also really
good at using my turn signals! I'm a firm believer that the world
would be a better place if everyone else did too.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my voice, people always compliment me on it. A few weeks ago a
phone salesman actually stopped mid-pitch to tell me that my sultry
voice was "buttering (his) bread", haha!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love post-apocalyptic present-day science fiction (for
example, Lucifer's Hammer and Mister Touch), socio-political tomes
like the Story of B, and Ishmael, and anything written by
Movies: This runs the gambit! There are so many good films, like
Ghandi, or Kill Bill (let's cut to the chase: anything Quentin
Tarantino), but I also like metaphysical stuff (like Mindwalk) and
I love thrillers. My childhood favorite was Bedknobs and
Broomsticks. Anything thought-provoking.
Shows: Buffy, Angel, Torchwood, Doctor Who. 'Nuff said.
Music: (Deep breath) Unaccompanied cello (Yo-Yo Ma), Appalachian
& Blue Grass, Folk music (Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Willie Nelson,
Townes Van Zant), Classic. I like both kinds of music: country and
Food: The spicier the better! Indian, Mexican, Mediterranean,
comfort food (what's better than macaroni and cheese? Oh.. bacon
mac & cheese).
The six things I could never do without
Bedtime stories on my iPod
The daily news (MSNBC)
Rocks and minerals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I would survive the Apocalypse. I also think about world peace,
kittens, and glitter.
On a typical Friday night I am
pouring a glass of wine, grabbing a book, and decompressing from
the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I saw a UFO once (for real). I did. And I was with a group
of people, and it was a clear summer night, and it was massive,
slow moving, and we were all standing there watching it as it moved
from East to West and then disappeared. It was the most
extraordinary thing I'd ever seen. If I had been alone, it would
have been terrifying.
PS: no, we weren't high.
PPS: I can't believe I admitted that.
You should message me if
you have most of your teeth and no criminal record (I'm raising my
