My self-summary
I am Central American, which means I'm super loud, say ridiculous things and don't care if people are outraged by my incessant bilingual cursing.
I have the entire Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin catalog on my iPod.
I am a cake and TV FIEND and I toats dig facial hair.
I wish my life was like the movie "Click" before Adam Sandler's character realized it was a bad idea.
The story behind my screen name: My high school senior quote was an OKGo lyric: "Mediocre people do exceptional things all the time."
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a paper where I am one of the youngest people on staff, which is pretty cool because I'm surrounded by people who actually know what they are doing. I graduated from a state school few years ago and I had a bunch of really neat internships where I got to live and work in DC and the Bay Area. I like to write news, but one day I want to just morph into Tina Fey and write comedy, that'd be pretty rad.
I’m really good at
Pretending like I know how to dance.
Looking productive.
Lionel Richie, Tears for Fears and Tenacious D karaoke.
Getting lost.
Correcting people's grammar.
Being really bad at math.
Letting old issues of The New Yorker and Rolling Stone magazines pile up.
The first things people usually notice about me
My glorious smile that makes people weep tears of confusion and joy.
That I'm clever AF.
Oh, and my Jay Leno chin?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like music that gives me goosebumps, books that get me so riled up I fling them across the room, TV that makes me cringe with happiness and movies that force me to hold my urine for up to three hours. Oh and food that doesn't make me hurl or I am morally against eating (this is a very short list).
Currently obsessed with: 1989 (The Ryan Adams version).
Currently reading: "Zodiac" and "Ghettoside."
Currently REwatching The Wire and watching The X Files for the first time.
GOT, Breaking Bad, Fargo and Louie are the bee's knees.
Six things I could never do without
Dance parties
Friends to feel nostalgic with
Writing utensils
Burt's bees wax
Cuddly dogs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What NOT to say when I'm drunk.
Living on a ranch with 50 rescued dogs when I'm old and retired. (I will be a dog lady one day probs.)
How much of people's OKCupid profile is true.
I think in Facebook posts and tweets, so that.
Twilight Zone marathons.
My karaoke list.
My favorite Pink Floyd album (go ahead, ask me what it is)
My complete appreciation and adoration for Arcade Fire (and Canadians in general).
What book to read next.
Seeing the Taj Mahal.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hugging my German shepherd and cocker spaniel until they whimper in pain.
Watching this tacky, but respected, Spanish version of Judge Judy.
Adding to my growing Netflix queue of docs and/or at the Verdugo with my college buds hiding from drunken hipsters.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to myself a lot, and when I do, I refer to myself in the third person... using my last name.
I still buy CDs and pay for cable -__-

Check all that apply:

If you are impressed with the fact that I made David Sedaris laugh, I gave Eric Idle the senior discount even though he didn't qualify, I shook Lady Obama's hand and gave Chris Hardwick a high-five.
You can appreciate a girl with a sarcastic sense of humor and can hold your own in an epic battle of witty banter.
You want to go to the Natural History Museum or the La Brea Tar Pits (I'm a member!)
The two of us
