2016 has been a great year so far--went to Cuba, sold some books, taking an Alaskan cruise, moving from Williamsburg to the Village--excited to see what comes next.
Here's a collection of things that I think I am:
Loyal friend. Voracious reader. Frequent flyer. Indiscriminate movie watcher. Bon vivant. Theatregoer. Fun instigator. Lindy hopper-in-training. Museum ambler. Football and basketball fan. Regular exerciser. Neighborhood explorer.
- Literary analysis (super useful, that one)
- Making friends wherever I go and keeping in touch with them
- Planning trips
Books: Middlesex, Pride and Prejudice, The Sun Also Rises, The Portable Dorothy Parker. And so. many. more.
Movies: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Wedding Crashers, The Princess Bride, Midnight in Paris. I tend to see more independent films but re-watch lighter fare.
TV: The Newsroom, Modern Family, and, if I'm being honest, Gilmore Girls.
Music: Current alternative like The Killers. The Indie Dance station on Pandora. 90's alternative/grunge like Nirvana and Veruca Salt. A smattering of everything else. And I won't start things off between us with a lie--I love Taylor Swift.
Food: Caesar salad, very rare steak, and French fries would be my last-meal menu, but I love trying new foods/cuisines/restaurants. Pizza and tasting menus: both excellent.
- Negronis in the summer and Manhattans in the winter
- Books, all the books
- Seeing a new place (preferably more than one) every year
- Theatres of all sorts
- Sunglasses (I have weirdly sensitive eyes)
And where to eat dinner this weekend.
