-I've met both George Clooney and Leo DiCaprio. George put his arm around my shoulders. It was amazing.
-I strongly believe that fake maple syrup is an abomination.
-Music is a big part of my life. (See my faves below.) While it's by no means a deal-breaker, I've noticed that the people I've gotten along best with share a similar taste in music.
-I performed craniosurgery on a mouse once. Don't worry - it was for research.
-I really, really wish I could like red wine, but I just can't wrap my head around the whole lukewarm beverage thing. But sangria - yes please!
-5 years ago I was in the audience for a taping of The Colbert Report and caught one of the WristStrong bracelets that Stephen flung into the crowd. So the two of us kind of have a connection.
-I hate Nutella.
-I'm also the only person I know of who prefers muffin bottoms to muffin tops. Soft and fluffy!!
-My favorite drink is a Moscow Mule.
-I am head-over-heels in love with Brian Williams. It makes me very, very sad that my evening classes prevent me from watching NBC Nightly News.
*Update: I realize Brian may have a bit of an issue with truth-telling, and I am coming to terms with this. I am also trying to adjust to the idea that he is not returning to the Nightly News anchor desk. Please allow me some privacy during this difficult time.
I'm looking for someone I can be myself around. That's terribly cliche, I know, but I've encountered a number of people around whom I've felt I had to put on some sort of act, and it is truly, utterly exhausting. I'm very independent and value my time to myself; but when I've had enough of that I want somebody I can explore the local bar and restaurant scene with, share a bottle of wine and play Scrabble with, and make me laugh so hard my sides hurt. I want to spend Saturday night out together, wake up late on Sunday, and do the crossword cuddled up in bed. Followed by brunch, of course. If these sound like things you'd be into - message me!
