I’m really good at
... listening, baking, making reservations, poking stuff with a
stick, washing dishes, people watching, reading, brewing coffee,
trivial pursuit, waving stuff in front of my cat ...
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a really raspy voice. No it's not a cold. Nope not allergies
either. Not really a smoker. It's always been this way. Honest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Annie Proulx, John Irving, Ann Marie MacDonald, Joyce Carol Oates ,
J.D. Salinger and F. Scott Fitzgerald are some of my favorite
writers. I love short stories.
Love Netflix and going to the theater as well. Will see anything if
it has Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Bill Murray,
Wes Anderson, or Phillip Seymour Hoffman involved.
Live music when I can afford it! I listen the most often to Bob
Dylan, Sam Roberts Band, Kathleen Edwards, Rilo Kiley, Mary J.
Blige, Oasis, Adele, Shakira, Brandi Carlile, Ray LaMontange, Eric
Hutchinson, Amy Winehouse, Florence and the Machine, Phoenix,
Oh food - trying to do MUCH less sugar. Seafood's the go to but
roast chicken and vegetables is hard to top in the fall.
The six things I could never do without
1. Oh, love and support
2. My cat Esme
3. Diet Coke (down to four cans a day!)
4. Getting outside every day
5. Gross but probably a smartphone
6. Apparently I'm doing without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my family, my friends like anyone else. Plus my dissertation, my
work, my cat, the funny thing Stephen Colbert said last night, if I
left the back door unlocked, what I'm going to cook for dinner, if
the nail polish I just bought is the exact same shade of pink as of
all my other bottles of nail polish.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably drinking a beer. And it is most certainly not an IPA.
Hopefully I'm watching a concert or a game while doing this. Or at
least with someone fun.
