Attempting to avoid cliches in describing who I am, what I do, my
passions and hobbies, I'm just a gal from a small town in northern
Maine who moved to DC years ago (after a stint in Boston) trying to
figure things out & having a little (or a lot) of fun along the
Or perhaps, better stated in 140 characters or less:
a little bit country, a little bit city, fan of pink but never in
sports, lover of all accents, including Canadian.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to turn my passion into gainful employment; picking up the
tab; dreaming about more stamps in my passport; geeking out over
ancestry stuff; discovering the hidden gems of DC and planning my
I've travelled to one of the few places left on the this planet
that most will never have the opportunity to visit. What's your
guess? Hint: its a developed country.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, sometimes at my own expense.
Balancing being a sports fan (Caps season ticket holder) and being
a woman. I may get a mani/pedi on a regular basis but I will NEVER
be caught wearing pink to a game.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just a few highlights:
Movies: Fever Pitch (mostly for the accents), The Departed, The
Town, Miracle, Dirty Dancing, Mighty Ducks, Wedding Crashers,
TV: Mad Men, Big Bang Theory, Friends, 30 Rock, Always Sunny...,
How I Met Your Mother, True Blood, Downton Abbey, West Wing and
Books: Lovely Bones, Summer Sisters, True Prep, Born Standing Up,
Bossypants, Emperor of Maladies, Blink, Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Music: I actually like just about anything, INCLUDING country. I
also firmly believe that "September" by Earth, Wind & Fire gets
the party started EVERY.TIME.
The six things I could never do without
Music, especially when the windows are down
Lazy Sunday evenings
Sun, but not the DC humidity
Short list: bacon, long-haul flights, puppies, flip flops, happy
hours, hydrangeas, potato blossom festival, turtle cheesecake, 4th
of July, stick shift sports cars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That the movie "Devil wears Prada" with a few minor changes &
location change could be about my life. I'm not exaggerating. I was
once asked to find a pair of lost keys on the National Mall, after
25,000+ people had been on the grounds. Once found, I had to hand
deliever them to the spa.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is a tough night and I'm usually more inclined to head home,
relax and get a good nights sleep. What I don't do on Friday,
though, I make up for on Saturday and Sunday.
You should message me if
You realize the importance of using the word wicked to describe
anything awesome. Or can at least appreciate it/humor me.
