My self-summary
So this is still old (like me). tl;dr: make me laugh and you've won me.

Now taking applicants for experienced or inexperienced crew for sailing (mis)adventures in scenic and historic Boston Harbor.

A friend recently (well, now it was a while ago. *sigh*) described me as "charmingly neurotic, funny, and well-rounded." That sounds about right, but she left-out successful and smart so she's "on notice" now.

Why take a stranger's word for it? Find out for yourself!

Things I enjoy: yoga, sailing, movies, music, (liberal) politics, weekends.

Things I do not enjoy: traffic, right-wingers, gloves, typing in all-caps, most vegetables (I'm getting better about that last one. But still. "You can't make friends with salad.")

So that's all a pretty dry list. I'm much more fun that this static page implies. Go ahead and shoot me an email. I can guarantee that I'll make you laugh at least once.

Bonus points if you can tell me your favorite Soprano. Bonus bonus points if it's mine. :)
What I’m doing with my life
What AM I doing with my life? That's a great question. Whatever it is, it must be working because I'm still here. I work way too hard. I hope it pays off.
I’m really good at
Cracking my gum loudly and repeatedly. The secret is to have a strong and flexible tongue. Draw your own conclusions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. You can let me know when I buy you a cocktail.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These are a few of my favorite things:
sailing, yoga, npr, pbs, tv (it's a problem), movies, music, booze, lower-case

Music deserves some refinement, maybe. I listen to music pretty much all the time. Here's a taste of what I like (in no order whatsoever):
Bjork, Sigur Ros, Neko Case, Rilo Kiley, The Rosebuds, Girl Talk, Silversun Pickups, Editors, Imogen Heap, Arcade Fire, Interpol, Pretty much anything on KEXP. Or anything that was on 'FNX in 1992. (Remember when 'FNX didn't suck?), the usual gay stuff (Madonna, showtunes), classical, opera, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, ummmm, I'm sure there's more. I like music.
The six things I could never do without
My kindle. Beer. Friends. Sailboats. Yoga. Ice cream.

I sleep with my kindle. I snuggle it like a teddy bear. Not even kidding.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about what I'd rather be doing. Unless I'm having fun. Then that's all I can think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting out of work as soon as I can so I can get to yoga class and then go meet-up with friends. Or, if they're not around, getting takeout and catching up on TiVo.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It is almost impossible for me to hear "Frosty the Snowman" without tearing-up. No, I don't care that "he'll be back again someday." I don't want him to have to leave! (Perhaps it's time to talk about this with a therapist.)
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to. I'll say something that will make you giggle. Probably. Or not. Life's a gamble.
