I am compelled to try new Root Beer and Ginger Ale. I own a sousaphone, and I should polish it more often, but it is in good repair. I read voraciously and I'm always happy to discover a new author I enjoy. I occasionally get excited enough about the prospect of a peanut butter sandwich to chant a little song while making it. Mysterious Galaxies is my favorite bookstore and if you like mystery, science fiction, or fantasy, I heartily recommend checking it out.
I'm Jewish. Mostly culturally, I don't really believe in G-d, but I like going to synagogue now and then. I observe the fast of Yom Kippur and the fast of the first born son, even if I don't go to services. Judaism is part of my heritage and it's not something I'm looking to give up, even though it isn't my faith. Really, if people didn't have fun following entirely arbitrary rules now and then, why do we have games like Simon Says and Red Light Green light? I do pick and choose- There's a lot of misogyny that I don't want to see perpetuated to future generations, but other traditions are good fun.
For movies, if it has the Muppets, there's a good chance I enjoy it. Groundhogs Day is probably my favorite Holiday movie. And True Stories will always be a bit of childhood nostalgia for me.
Shows: Daily Show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Rachel Maddow. I am still disappointed that the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore was cancelled.
Music: They Might be Giants, Suzanne Vega, Liz Phair, Talking Heads, Paul Simon, Indigo Girls, also most things a good high school symphonic band might play, such as Holst, Gershwin, Copeland, etc.
Food: I prefer to eat foods that have not been boiled. I just don't really enjoy the texture of most boiled foods.
Science Fiction/Fantasy - and I'm counting that as one, just like the book stores.
Paper and Pencil (or something to approximate paper and pencil).
Friends or acquaintances.
Clothing, I can do without shoes now and then, but I definitely need clothes. I sunburn far too easily to go without.
A watch. I feel kind of naked without mine.
I'm looking for a friend. A person I can trade books with. Someone to talk with, about news of the day, food, anything at all, maybe nothing. Games are a natural part of conversation, she appreciates alliteration and assonance. She's lethally clever, maybe dangerous in other ways too, I don't know.
Someone to bounce ideas off of, to create worlds with, to explore with, even if said exploring doesn't involve leaving the house.
