So my favorite color is lime green and my favorite ice cream flavor is B&J's chubby hubby (NOT the annoyingly similarly named chunky monkey). My favorite cloud type is cumulonimbus, favorite diacritic mark is the umlaut and favorite meal is brunch. What more do you need to know?
*Update: my favorite color is now chartreuse. Lime green can suck it.
I'm a scientist. Typing that made me smile. My work is important but not everything. I really enjoy being active- especially yoga or capoeira and I spend as much time as I can designing and making my own clothes.
• being there for a friend
• underwatering the basil and then overwatering to compensate, thus ensuring it dies a slow and painful death
I'm sort of bad at but still enjoy
• making stuff
Books - too many! Ones that come to mind at the moment are: Hero with a Thousand Faces, The Cheese Monkeys, The Outsider, Man for Himself, Middlesex, The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales, anything Wodehouse
Movies - Life Aquatic, Death at a Funeral, Scent of Green Papaya, American Pimp, Big Lebowski (I once saw someone dressed as the Dude for Mardi Gras. It was the easiest costume ever. He just wandered around in ratty bathrobe and slippers, drinking a caucasian and saying stuff like "the Dude abides.")
Shows - The Smurfs. Except for the one where we find out that La Schtroumpfette started out as a fake evil smurf. How sad!
Music - Magnetic Fields, Mana, Zydepunks, Red Stick Ramblers, The National
Food - I'll try anything once. I'm on a quest for the best noodles in Chinatown. So far, Xian's famous foods is the hands-down winner.
How this city is nuts but I never want to leave.
Did I get enough done today?
What is it like to be a bat?
What's for dinner?
for smart, adventurous and highly opinionated.
Note: if your favorite book is The Alchemist, we will not get along. Just sayin'
