Originally from a small town in Ireland, I've been gallivanting
around New York for almost six years at this stage, but haven't
lost the beguiling, bewildering brogue just yet :p
My interests are "mixed" to say the least. I have season theater
tickets, but enjoy the odd Yankies* game. I used to cook but
haven't for years so I eat out a lot, including once at Medieval
Times (and not for my sixth birthday). I love being in the city
during the week, and out of it at the weekends. I'm outgoing,
fiercely loyal, and (mostly) housebroken.
* A friend pointed out that I can't spell "yankees," but it seems

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether the "Buy her A-list" button works.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends (they're a fun lot). They are also
witty, loyal, generous, and handsome. And proof-read this blurb.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have varied (read as: "awful") taste in music. Years ago,
"hoodlums" broke into our apartment and selectively robbed my then
roommates' CDs, but not mine, from our shared rack. My collection,
