I am a music addict. And maybe a snob. I make no apologies, but do try to be open minded (successfully, sometimes).
I love dogs. For a year and a half I worked with them as a dog handler. I know way too much and may scare you. But I promise that I've never embroidered anything with a dog face, or anything like that. My dog, Prudence, is a sweet little Rottweiler. Bonus points for the name reference.
And I suppose I love traveling too, whenever I can manage to. I love road trips, especially when it involves bands and concerts.
I love to joke around and laugh whenever possible. Especially at myself.
I've always been a bit of a tomboy. I enjoy playing and watching most sports. My favorite sport to play is soccer, but to watch is baseball. I live in Cubs-land but am a born and raised White Sox fan (blame my dad).
Also always been a bit of an environmentalist. Don't use styrofoam around me. I'll definitely be annoyed and most likely say something...
I like proper grammar. I don't like when people use "words" like "u" and "ur," and don't know the difference between "their" and "there."
I make it a point to be upfront, open, and honest. And cynical. And sarcastic.
Oh, and I'm an avid people watcher. People make me laugh.
I am cynical, eclectic, and grounded
Movies...NOT romantic comedies. I love finding new independent films. I like a variety of kinds of movies, but find myself usually not liking blockbuster films. Some of my favorites are Spinal Tap, Donnie Darko, Almost Famous, Pride and Prejudice (A&E version), High Fidelity, 13 Conversations About One Thing, Amelie, Once, Across the Universe, The United States of Leland, Juno, Lost in Translation, The Royal Tenenbaums (Wes Anderson in general), A Very Long Engagement, V for Vendetta, and Vanilla Sky.
I listen to all different genres of music, but am very picky about what bands I like. I listen to a lot of alternative 80s music (XTC, The Smiths, R.E.M., Morrissey, Robyn Hitchcock, Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, The Cure, The Clash, Aztec Camera, etc), more mainstream alt rock (Muse, Radiohead, Wilco, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Live, Green Day, U2, etc), more recent indie type bands (Grandaddy, Camera Obscura, Field Music, Tokyo Police Club, Modest Mouse, Matthew Ryan, Sigur Ros, The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie, Bright Eyes, MGMT, Múm, etc), and of course, the best of the original pop rock (The Beatles, The Zombies, etc). I'm even occasionally up for a bit of world music or classical.
TV...I love anything involving Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (The Office BBC, Extras). Also love Flight of the Conchords, House, Coupling, 30 Rock, Battlestar Gallactica, Firefly, and Family Guy. And, of course, Doctor Who. The old ones for laughs, but David Tennant is my hero.
I love food from around the world. Thai, Indian, Sushi, Mexican, Mediterranean, Italian. I'm generally up for trying something new, but I don't eat much of any meat (occasionally chicken or turkey. That's it).
...you want to discuss the brilliance of R.E.M.'s "Life's Rich Pageant," or the incredible bass sounds on the latest Muse record, or how XTC are so clever with their bass and guitar interplay, or how Sigur Ros can truly take your emotional state and transform it without saying a word, or how the radio and Clear Channel killed the progress of music, or...you get the point.
