Coffee over tea. Waffles over pancakes. West over east. Hipster
over hippie. Less traveled over of least resistance. Rome over
Paris. Diet over regular. Sleeping in over getting the worm. Eggs
over hard. Bacon over everything.
What I’m doing with my life
I read and practice law. I do employment litigation. I defend bad
I spend lots of time in the kitchen, watch television of
questionable quality, and am obsessed with classic film.
I’m really good at
being a burgher. (Not the tasty sandwich.) Romance languages.
Discussing history from, oh, say, Bolshevism to the post-war German
economic miracle. Procrastinating, then getting shit done.
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe the ADHD (self-diagnosed). And of course my impossibly
well-appointed outfits telling of irresponsible consumerism.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If I read fiction, I go with pulp or hardboiled, like James M.
Cain. Otherwise, I like autobiographies of classic film stars.
Richard Burton's love letters to Liz Taylor. Anything on
I dabble in indie music, like lo-fi and alt-country. If it will
sound better on a record player, I'm happy. When I jog, I go with
bluegrass or 2Pac. When I cook, I go with standards or opera.
I wouldn't turn down a burger (the tasty sandwich). I vary between
extremes, like Asian street food and fried chicken, to delivery
diet and vegan desserts (my fave).
The six things I could never do without
yoga, milk, moisturizer, warm weather, a good blanket, access to good Chinese food
Easier to list things I could do without: art walks, insane crowds, narcissism.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Caribbean water and hipster chic
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not private per se, but nothing to brag about - I color, as in
coloring books. I just do it to relax.
You should message me if
you're very sarcastic, but not in a dick way.
