My self-summary
After a decade or so in Manhattan I've ended up in the suburbs down here in Princeton - never a specific plan, but after 6 years or so the NYC withdrawl is under control and mediated by periodic endurance of the North East Corridor line. I'm an ex-pat Brit, firmly settled this side of the pond (I now come equipped with a pointlessly large house with an unkempt garden), but with certain birthright features: irony, sometime fondness for odd sports (cricket, rugby, cycling), urge to know what's happening outside the US as much as inside. My accent, like much of the rest of me is decidedly less pure than it used to be, although allegedly it makes itself known from time to time, and I sometimes come out with a strange idiom or two. Bob's Your Uncle. The last person that guessed it (an NYC cab driver) came pretty close but still thought I was antipodean rather than Brit - I spent 9 months in NZ so I'll grant him that. The Brits themselves are entirely confused. About my accent, anyway.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now ? Telling myself I should sit myself down in front of the Mac and chip away at the photo backlog. (I'm a Mac zealot). Wondering if my Netflix queue is large enough yet to become sentient. Setting my alarm clock for implausibly early hours so I can get out and catch the good light. Wondering if the sidewalks have rolled up in Princeton yet or if I can sprint down Route 1 for sushi.
I’m really good at
....not finding self-promotion particularly enticing. Photography. Bird ID. Science.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm 6'2" with long red(-ish) hair. I'm guessing it's one of those. The long hair is kind of an anachronism these days, but inertia is currently trumping any alternatives. If I'm out the 800mm f5.6 attracts a certain amount of attention, and I'm often attached to it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(A) Snow Crash. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Atonement. Middlesex. Suspecting that I won't be adding The Confusion to this list even if I ever finish it (B) Three Days of the Condor. Blade Runner. Apocalypse Now. Diva. Good Night and Good Luck. Michael Clayton. A cast of thousands as also-rans - Memento, The Limey, Alien(s), Trois Couleurs Blue.... (C) Cream, Rolling Stones, White Stripes, some bluegrass and alt country, but I'm more into alternative rock and currently enjoying bits of Arcade Fire (D) Sushi. Steak. Indian. Thai.
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen, ATP. I've moved continents more than once, so that tends to reduce what you have down to a subset: camera(s), passport, sunscreen (I'm a redhead), a Mac. Or right now, several cameras and several Macs - a product of being too sedentary. Never losing the attachment to the natural environment that some bird calling outside my window distracts me from all this technological overkill.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why oh why didn't I take the blue pill ?
Photography, birding, motivations, emotions, simplicity, best time to replace the sugar solution in the hummingbird feeder, or at the moment when to refill the seed feeder.
On a typical Friday night I am
in NYC, or not; the 40,000 photo backlog; recharging batteries (literal and metaphorical) for Saturday's excursion. Suppressing the urge to drive down to DC and annihilate some Birthers that keep calling my land line.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private = private. However if you're particularly drawn to this section, I'll say that something resonates in this quote from Hugh Laurie: "I equate happiness with contentment, and contentment with complacency, and complacency with impending disaster." in a NY Times piece I read.
