My mentor, who probably knows me better than anyone, called me the following:
"self-depricating ironic feminist type"
"short, brown and opinionated"
Drinking coffee, reading, writing
Making eye contact with strangers on the train
Coffee/drinks/food and conversation with friends
Going to talks, events, etc.
Projecting my voice
Bruising the banana/peach/avocado I brought into work
Accidentally staring off into people's crotches on the train
Oh, and lipstick.

What I should write next
That sounds mean, but 90% of the messages I get are from people who think that "hi :)" or "How was your day?" or a compliment is enough to warrant a response. I am, more than anything else, interested in conversation.
That also sounded a little mean. Oh well.
