- cookie dough, Trader Joe's, seeing plays, sleeping in, eating out, French macarons, cheese, fountain pens, my fast car, good classical radio, my seven nieces and nephews, single malt Scotches, the OED, Oxford commas, putting only 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:
– Running the Marathon marathon, hiking in Sequoia National Park, seeing a mind–blowingly amazing production of Hamlet, swimming in Crater Lake, and floating in the Dead Sea.
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". I dress like Sam Seaborn and Stephen Colbert for work; have sung Bach's B Minor, Mahler's 8th, and Mozart's Requiem; and I love this clip starring Rowlf the Dog.
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.
