Introvert, but I have jokes.
Great parallel parker on the passenger's side, inexplicably horrible on the driver's side. Out of practice orchestra percussionist. Two people independent of each other said I had the personality of Josh from "West Wing." At least one of them meant it for a compliment.
Non-fiction: The New Jim Crow, Nixonland, The Submerged State, Family Properties (pretty much any book that makes me want to throw it across the room is doing its job), The 30 Years War, The Orientalist, Battle Cry of Freedom. Barbara Tuchman was probably my soul mate.
TV & movies: Game of Thrones, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Casablanca like anyone who has a heart, Royal Tenenbaums, Twin Peaks.
Albums for a desert island:
-Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited
-Van Morrison, Astral Weeks
-Neko Case, Blacklisted
-Tchaikovsky 6th Symphony.
-Either a Joan Baez best-of or the Clancy Brothers Live from Carnegie Hall.
Lately alternating Florence & the Machine, Billy Bragg (three chords and the truth), and Velvet Underground.
Recently, building Legos with my baby nephews!
