My self-summary
In a nutshell...
And in absolutely no particular order :)

I like... cookie dough, Trader Joe's, seeing plays, sleeping in, eating out, French macarons, cheese, fountain pens, having a fast car, classical music, my seven nieces and nephews, single malt Scotches, the OED, Oxford commas, putting exactly one space between sentences, office supplies, footnotes, thesauruses, The Beatles, 24-hour diners, daily newspapers, briefcases, Shakespeare, Unitarian Universalism, and donuts.

My bucket list includes:
Floating in the Dead Sea
Seeing a mind–blowingly amazing production of Hamlet
Running the Marathon marathon
Hiking to the tree named General Sherman in Sequoia National Park


If I could I'd make Groundhog Day a federal holiday; I loved law school; my family has a lot of redheads and women named "Cordelia"; I can milk a goat, fix your computer, take you shooting, and defend you in court when you're caught smoking crack. I'm an Eagle Scout, and my first cousin once removed wrote an entire book on the word "OK". For work I dress like Sam Seaborn, and Stephen Colbert, and Rob Lowe playing an actor playing a lawyer on TV. I've sung Bach's B Minor, Mahler's 8th, and Mozart's Requiem, and I love this clip starring Rowlf the Dog.

I believe in kindness. Also in mischief. Also in singing, especially when singing is not necessarily prescribed.

Going on a culinary tour of Italy... and France... and India... sounds awesome. I've taught juggling, run the NYC and Marine Corps marathons, skydived, hang glided, and circled the Beltway on a motorcycle; and though I've lived in DC for a while, I still think motorcades and helicopters are *way* cool.

Kudos if you:
Catch references to The Princess Bride or Monty Python skits
Sing out loud the songs that get stuck in your head
Can envision us in this wonderful Bollywood song and dance number
