There's a constant struggle between my inner bohemian and my inner June Cleaver.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to bring back Livejournal.
(Writing/kid wrangling/paper peddling/antique book organizing. Living my dream of being a starving artist for a minute while I complete my childcare training.)
I’m really good at
Run on sentences and sentence fragments. Finding the silver lining.
Dancing. Remembering completely insignificant details and the
lyrics to everysongever.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably the red glasses, or the fact that I'm usually
doublefisting a bottle of champagne and a cup of coffee.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I have a major obsession with Richard Brautigan. I own a copy of the wildly popular What You Can Do To Avoid Aids by Magic Johnson. It's brilliant, I promise you. Anyway... Beat Generation, Tom Robbins, classics, Roald Dahl, non-fiction about music/artists/writers, and I'm a sucker for poetry. And Perks will forever be one of my favourites. (Worst list ever. I own about 900 books. I want to list them all.)
Movies: Elf, Annie Hall, Over The Top, The Way We Were. Mumblecore & Mumblegore. Uncomfortable character studies. All horror, Christmas movies (Hallmark Channel 4 lyfe,) 90's rom coms.
Shows: Anything that was created for high school girls, and the Twilight Zone.
Music: The Mountain Goats, Saetia, Kind Of Like Spitting, The Eels, Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Father John Misty, Jeffrey Lewis, Goth Brooks, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra. And forever and always Saves the Day, Knapsack, Brand New, Mineral, Taking Back Sunday, Get Up Kids, Reggie, and all those other bands I listened to during the good part of high school. And T Swift. Obv.
Food: Brunch. Sushi. Peanut butter and bananas. I put spinach and mushrooms on/in almost everything. Butternut squash bisque is probably the greatest thing ever. And almond joy ice cream is my biggest weakness. No meat or poultry because I value the lives of land creatures more than I do sea creatures.
The six things I could never do without
Composition notebooks, cheap champagne and expensive coffee, old musty books, sing-a-longs, live music, and my familyfriendskittens.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's happening around me, except in choreographed song and
And how much I love facial hair.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Tell All Your Friends will forever be one of my favourite albums.
You should message me if
You want to make me a mixtape.
