My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
FALL 08 UPDATE: Decidedly seriously involved with a wonderful old friend. I'm leaving this profile up strictly to keep touch with some previously met folks (and my brother's potential dates, heh heh). I am entirely, happily monogamous, say what you will. Good luck, and may the Gods smile upon you as they've been smiling upon me!

---------------OLD PROFILE FOLLOWS---------------------------
My job is to confuse you by confounding the stereotypes you will want to apply to me. My writing teacher taught me to show, not tell, though, so I guess you'll have to wait until I can show you.

I'm curious about almost everything... I haven't had enough long bike rides recently... I should also mention socialism utopia dystopia linguistics Harper's Weekly and oh yeah, I'm Pagan. To be more specific, I'm a priestess in the Lukumi tradition.

I read obsessively. Constantly. In lieu of tv. This means that I can hold forth on many a topic, but if you expect me to know the names of current shows, you'll just be disappointed.

I seek a way to fight for social justice that feels like it might even work. In the meantime, I content myself with being a revolutionary cheerleader, which means I'm rabble-rousing on the airwaves. Yeah, college radio!

I did gay marriage before it was legal here. Gay divorce before it was in. Then almost married a man --across continents, religion and race-- before language (language, of all things!!) did us in. Now I'm just interested in meeting someone new to share an intellectually stimulating or at least a pithy conversation over the beverage of their choice.

Aww, who am I kidding? I would like to have someone to cuddle up with in bed at night, too.

Bueno, ahora parece que la compu como que no quiere dejarme dormir. Me esta señalando algo nuevo, me dice que estoy obligada a llenar el formulario en español (cosa que jamás me habia pedido antes). Después, después, ok?!

'Tou cansaaaaaaada e não quero escrever maiiiiiiiis Deixo colocar um pouco de Renato Russo: "Se fosse só sentir saudade Mas tem sempre algo mais Seja como for E' uma dor que dói no peito Pode rir agora Que estou sozinho Mas não venha me roubar....

Escreve LOGO se vc reconhece a canção.

I am zany, nugiperous, and strangely insatiable
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In my volunteer work: creating a space on FM radio for Latino voices and music.

Studying my ass off.

En el trabajo: soy intérprete en uno de los hospitales más famosos de Boston. Tremendo trabajo, tremenda responsabilidad.

En la emisora de radio: soy miembro de un grupo que produce un programa bilingüe de notícias, música y historias de las américas.

En el tiempo que sobra: estoy tomando clases para quizás un día poder ejercer nueva carrera de enfermera especialista. A ver!

No emprego: trabalho de intérprete num dos hospitais mais famosos de Boston. É um trabalho forte, difícil, com alta responsabilidade, mas um trabalho que afinal adoro fazer. O problema é que não paga muito bem. Bom, isso e um par de outras coisinhas, mas disso falamos depois.

Na rádio: faço parte dum grupinho de estudantes e activistas comunitárias que produz um programa bilingüe, uma combinação de música, novedades, y historias dos povos das américas.

No tempo que sobra: me preparo para lançar nova carreira de enfermeira especialista, o que a gente chama aquí de "Nurse Practitioner." Vai ser f---, mesmo, mas quero mudar tudo, fazer alguma mudança enorme na minha vida, já é tempo mesmo. Deve saber do que estou falando, né?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
imitating sounds. Not just those sequences of otherwise meaningless sounds that we assign significance to (which we call language), but birdsong and caterwauls and the sound of the doors closing on the Red Line, which always makes me think of the first few notes of a Mozart sonata that I play.

You may have noticed I am also really good at free-association. This is usually because there are just too many things I want to talk about at once.

I'm good at befriending kids. It probably has nothing to do with how I osla yllaer evah nuf gnilleps ffuts sdrawkcab. Or maybe it does.

falar demais por não ter nada a dizer
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People think I'm about 10 years younger than I actually am. The other day someone was wrong by 20 years. No, really! I am ebullient. I enjoy using fancy words like 'ebullient.' If you see me on three different occasions, you may notice that I wear three completely different styles of clothing (vaguely hipster-androgy-butch, low-femme, ritual white). At large parties, I am paradoxically part wallflower and part ham.

sei, la. Diga la o q vc acha, ué!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Ah, books. Let's limit it to novels: The Sparrow. His Dark Materials. Native Tongue. Speaker for the Dead. The Fifth Sacred Thing. Doomsday Book. Cryptonomicon. Any Ursula LeGuin. I read the first 4 Harry Potter books and then I stopped because I couldn't get my hands on any more UK versions and I refused to read the American ones. Yeah, I know. Don't tell me how it ends.

Movies: the list of films I want to see is far, far longer than the ones I have. If I had the time and money, I would go see almost every film they show at the MFA. The BLIFF, the Palestinian Film Festival, the Jewish Film Festival, these are the places I usually manage to see movies. Otherwise it just doesn't happen, despite my best intentions. But I saw "Road to Guantanamo" and it struck me as one of the best, most topical films of the decade. But maybe this is because of what I said before about not seeing a lot of films?

My musical tastes are all over the map: proto-punk, Joy Division, Bauhaus, Gang of Four, salsa dura, musica cubana, MPB, pagode, forro, Brazilian electronica, axe, bhangra, rai, shaabi, gypsy music like Tarif de Haidouks but also Gogol Bordello , bluegrass, Celtic trad-rock and so on, not to mention Rachmaninoff, Debussy, Chopin and Beethoven. Usually, if I haven't heard the stuff, I'll be open to listening to it at least once. Recently discovered The National --now obsessed. That voice!! My God-!!

I didn't even try to list the foods that interest me. I am the consummate adventurer in the restaurant. I am the first one in the brand-new hole-in-the-wall on the block. I like serendipity with my meals. I appreciate slow food, vegetarian cooking, and churrasco a rodizio as much as Ethiopian, North African and Caribbean cooking.

Um livro bem escrito. Um documental bem artistico. Qualquer música pós-punque. Frango a cebola, com farofa e couve. Aiiii meu deus!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Used book stores. Public libraries. Singing. The ocean. Imagination. And hope. I have tried doing without hope, but I don't think it can be done.

Livrarias (de livros usados principalmente, mas os novos sao bons tambem) O sistema de bibliotecas publicas e gratis dos EUA, o qual me parece uma das unicas coisas que fizemos corretamente neste pais. O canto. O mar. A imaginacao. E a esperanca. Tentei sobreviver sem esperanca, mas acho que eh impossivel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether or not my lack of direct action against the Bush administration constitutes complicity.

How to authentically live my life while combining my religious and political beliefs.

When I will ever read all the damned books in my house.

The air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow.

bastante coisas. Coisas demais. Preciso deixar de pensar de vez em quando. Assim talvez poderia ateh descansar um pouco.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
burnin' up the airwaves! and then staying up far too late reading obscure analyses of Marxist theory, Afro-Cuban folklore, or Martin Meridith's phenomenal The Fate of Africa. Not qualifying for any of the Peanut Labs surveys.

estou no ar. Sintoniza-se.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
