My self-summary
I travel. Not as much as I'd like...but I'm getting there. I've been out of the country once this year; a mad dash road trip to Tofino on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I try to make it to at least one city festival a season, preferably the Italian Market Festival (because there are cannolis to be bought).

I like to pretend that I'm a city person tried & true. But the truth is, for the right reason, I'd move away from this glorious city in a heartbeat. I love the woods too much to never live there.

I take pictures of everything. It's almost embarrassing. I don't care. I wish I wrote more and read less. I don't drink much, but when I do, I'm hilarious (or so I'm told). I hate using "I" in paragraphs, but sometimes you have to. I hate ending sentences in prepositions but sometimes I'm lazy. Running is my form of exercise. I'm often put to shame when someone 30 years my senior breezes by me. I'm not a vegetarian but I don't eat meat much. Hamburgers are my downfall.

I don't have any pets but my basil plant will spruce up your pasta sauce. I call him Basil.

But I digress. None of this matters unless you have someone special to share it with.

After all, aren't we all just looking for someone to help carry Ikea furniture or groceries up a flight of stairs?

Perhaps I could be of assistance? After all, I happen to be awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
- I like to take photographs. Ok, I like to take a lot of photographs.

- "I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good."

- Recently? Road trips.

- In an effort to live healthier, I've recently given up coffee & cigarettes.

- Ruminating on life's mysteries after a 6 hour Spotify binge.

- Waiting for a decades old TV series DVD disc to arrive by mail from Netflix.
I’m really good at
- making people laugh, in any situation (including inappropriate ones).
- I like to think I'm above average at photography.
- Picking out greeting cards. Usually can get it on the first try. You're jealous.
- Making dogs smile.
The first things people usually notice about me
An older lady at WaWa once commented on my eyes. On a separate occasion, two women in an elevator said I smelled nice. I believe it was "I'm sorry, but you smell REALLY good."

I was also told I had good posture once. WTF?

Besides that, I'd have to say my glasses (zort).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books. I love to read but haven't found anything recently that peaks my interest. What I read, regularly: Tolkein, Harry Potter, Hunter S. Thompson, Vonnegut, David Sedaris, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Idiot, The Beach, A Farewall to Arms, Philip K. Dick, My Uncle Oswald.

I'm currently reading my way through the collected works of Chuck Palaho, Chuck Palahun, Chuck Palaaldhflahdlajfjdfkajf. I'm on Monster now.

Movies: I love movies and will give every one a chance.

Current Netflix & general new boob tubery: Broad City, The Office, 30 Rock (I love Tina Fey's brain), FRIENDS, Seinfeld, Family Guy, King of The Hill, old Nick at Night, Portlandia, Parks & Recreation, Breaking Bad, Girls, The Walking Dead, HIMYM, Hell on Wheels, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Twin Peaks, Alone in The Wilderness, Planet Earth, Futurama, Ken Burns, Marco Polo, Wilfred, The Americans.

Music: I like all types of music. British Invasion, Garage rock, pop rock, folk rock, psychedelic rock, progressive rock, punk rock post-punk, alt rock, indie rock. So yea, pretty much anything guitar driven.

Food: Italian is my all time favorite. Pistachios (or as I call them, smismachios).
The six things I could never do without
Pizza, Netflix, My Dog (although I think she's an evil genius trapped in a dog's body), My camera, My burgeoning library, Vanilla Lattes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I won a $300 million jackpot, I'd have Colin Hanks star in every Tom Hanks movie remake. (Update: someone may be trying to steal my idea: http://www.starwipe.com/list/12-photos-tom-hanks-will-make-you-say-im-pretty-su-1095)

Early onset grumpiness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Checking out a band for my job or hanging out with friends. Or, if I don't feel like anything, watching movies while editing photos. Sometimes driving to my hometown to see my mom, bro, and pup.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"If I told you things I did before, told you how I used to be; would you go along with someone like me? If you knew my story, word for word, had all of my history; would you go along with someone like me?"

I'm shorter than the world's tallest cow: http://www.wifr.com/home/headlines/Local-Cow-Now-Holds-World-Record-279064071.html
You should message me if
...you're so inclined. I think I'm pretty interesting so we'll probably have something to talk about.
...you're Tina Fey.
...you want to enjoy my hair while it lasts.
