Excited to start a great new job in Bristol, TN while I get my
groove back and adjust to being out of graduate school.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to have as much fun as possible and not take life TOO
I’m really good at
Baking, petting cats, quoting the Golden Girls, multitasking, and
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my expressive face, and my quirky sense of humor.
Addendum: facial hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read almost anything. I have a penchant for trashy mystery
novels, especially if they have recipes or talking animals. But I
also enjoy absurdist literature (My Cousin, My Gastroenterologist),
things about Nature (Mary Oliver's poetry, Ann Dillard's Pilgrim at
Tinker Creek), and books about music and culture. I also have a
growing collection of oddball cookbooks from the 1950s. I also just
read Crapalachia by Scott McClanahan and fell in love with
Food: I bake. A lot. So if we become friends, you'd better be able
to eat the occasional cookie, piece of cake, slice of bread, or
piece of candy without making a frenzied dash straight to the
Movies: Sunset Boulevard, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Clue,
When Harry Met Sally, Girls Will Be Girls, Steel Magnolias, Best In
Show, Dogtooth...basically if it is campy or depressing, I'm
TV: RuPaul's Drag Race, Golden Girls, Designing Women, Mary Tyler
Moore, Murder She Wrote, Toddlers and Tiaras, Clean House (Niecy
Nash and I would be best friends!).
And I really can't list my favorite music. It's what I study, I
play a few instruments, and I like far too much to discuss without
boring everyone slap to death.
The six things I could never do without
1. Good friends.
2. Good food.
3. Good music.
6. My glasses/contacts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My place in the Universe and what I'm having for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
I could be doing lots of things, really - out having an adult
beverage with friends, home slaving over my dissertation, baking a
cake, going out to a concert...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I have a beard simply because I am lazy.
You should message me if
You know who Diamanda Galas is.
You could buy me coffee.
You like pound cake.
You think I am interesting.
