My self-summary
i'm just a girl, standing in front of a computer, asking it to love her.

i was reared in brownstone brooklyn, schooled in a bubble on chicago's south side, seasoned on the mean streets of france where every cobblestone is an ankle begging to be twisted, and then burped out onto the avenues of my native town for several more years of hard and perpendicular surfaces. all of which has stoked an active fantasy life consisting mostly of tableaus involving me in settings of extreme natural beauty. so, california.
What I’m doing with my life
dipping a finger in every pot.

so, playing mancala and eating thalis
I’m really good at
making egg sandwiches, talking down people in hysterics, conducting invasive google searches, starting campfires with damp wood, using the turnstile instead of the emergency exit, quelling awkward situations, lobbing it back atcha
The first things people usually notice about me
that i'm half an hour late.

also that I'm gregarious
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
wharton, nabokov, roth, cather, carver, zizek, steinbeck, roberto bolano, borges, and herge. i really liked Snow Crash, and ditto for A Heart So White.

birdman, elizabethtown, loves of a blonde, the cook, the thief, his wife, and her lover, all the real girls, once upon a time in the west, until the end of the earth, hud.

togetherness, M*A*S*H, doc martin, the mindy project, bsg, star trek (save for DS9), the bachelor franchise, and all the rest of it

ryan adams, duran duran, pavement, metric, wild flag, bob dylan, the new pornographers, bruce springsteen, tom waits, wanda jackson, the hold steady, lucius, dvorak, and all the same podcasts as you. and i'm pretty undiscriminating when it comes to euro top 40 (see: but i haven't been listening to music lately? i don't know what that's about. i would totally be down for a listening party.

i like good olive oil, and fish served with the head still on. but also bodega tuna.

sour beers and whiskey sours.
The six things I could never do without
-a room with a view
-good water pressure
-drinkable table wine or a decent cuppa
-bready objects
-a good throw blanket
-solid meandering conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
million dollar ideas, things i cannot control, any marked change in the weather
On a typical Friday night I am
having drinks, maybe hamburgers
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm concerned about my life trajectory.
also, i sort of deeply believe the internet is killing our hearts and minds.
You should message me if
you always go swimming if a body of water is available

Or if you suspect we would have a lovely time! i really don't respond to blanket messages. this being said, I'm not looking to make a specific type of connection in particular... the internet is bad at communicating x factor, and who knows! if we don't have sexytime chemistry, maybe we can still get gindrunk and make up stories about the relationships of fellow bar patrons. or we can become fast friends who go touring wine country with our respective spouses and children when we are old and salt-and-peppered. alternatively, maybe we will make out against the side of a building and get reckless and be amazed.
