Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I deleted everything I wrote a few months ago because I feel like a
different person since I created this profile. Better, more free,
more in touch with solitude (working on that!) and really happy to
have moved to the Northampton area. Tonight I was enjoying dinner
with my friend and the guy next to me offered me a taste of his hot
pepper tequila. I tried it and it was really spicy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
You mean other than working full time and parenting and
co-parenting? Until I had children, I spent my free time checking
out movies and films, going to theater and sometimes to the

Last year I read "Far from the Tree" by Andrew Solomon and am still
talking about it to everyone who will listen. That's a must read
for every parent. When I packed up my stuff for a recent move, I
had almost 60 boxes of books. Sigh.
I'm about to start season six of Mad Men, am enjoying Freaks and
Geeks, and over the years, my favorite shows have been the
Sopranos, LOST, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Arrested
Development before it tanked, and Veronica Mars. But it's cool if
you don't know what those are - most haven't been on for a long,
long time. At this point, it's a lot of Curious George. And Downton
Abbey.... oh my gosh, how could I have forgotten Breaking Bad?
Breaking Bad sums up everything I love. Meth labs, hot guys, and
Malcolm in the Middle. (If you didn't get that as a joke, that's
