My self-summary
I like: literature, how hilarious people look on vespas, waistcoats, running, James Brown's approach to life, that Duchamp died laughing, fireplaces, clam chowder, sushi, films so terrible they transcend their awfulness, Dave Berman, rivers, prizes.

I dislike: bus tours, discrimination, commercials, and daylight savings time.
What I’m doing with my life
Making the most of it!
I’m really good at
Writing, walking, telling a story, making soup, luxuriating.
The first things people usually notice about me
You'd have to ask them.

A Good Book

Coffee

A Laugh

Stimulating Conversation

Music

A Drink
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the juiciest celebrity gossip , how to lead a life of leisure without committing crimes or starving to death, and dance parties.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking, going to a gig, catching a movie then drinking. Hanging out with friends in general.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ahhh....let's not admit it.
