My self-summary
I read. I write. I join too many book clubs. I love museums (art, history or other). I love my job. I'm trying to love my gym - but it's a struggle. I take too many selfies. I could spend hours in a bookstore. I like all kinds of movies and live shows (even if I don't know the band). My idea of roughing it is a three-star hotel. I would rather wander around a city center than hike a nature trail, but you can still find me camping a few times each year. I love sun, sand and salt water. Summer is my favorite season. I study French and Arabic but never seem to get much better at either. I took years and years of Spanish classes and try to use it when I can. I'm fat. I'm fun. I'm happy. I get turned on by honesty and mutual respect. I'm a sex-positive, queer feminist. I'm voting for Hillary.

I like dinners, drinks, roller derby, indie cinema and the 9:30 Club. But we can start with coffee.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an analyst for a large global organization. Mostly writing and project management. Lots of editing. Good stuff.

My office is in Gaithersburg, so I'm often closer to DC than my home location would make it seem. Yes, my commute is awful. I telecommute a couple of days a week.

I have exactly one kid and one dog. I adore them both.
I’m really good at
Filling up blank pages. Seeing the bright side. Staying up too late. Sleeping in. Having brunch. Doing crossword puzzles.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. People always tell me that I have a great smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Bram Stoker's Dracula is the only book about vampires I need. The Unbearable Lightness of Being haunts me in the best possible way. I'm working my way through War and Peace at a snail's pace (6 years and counting). I love Austen and Atwood and Agatha (Christie).

Daniel Craig is my favorite Bond. Secretary is my favorite film. Any movie with the supernatural or superheroes will get me to the theater. Subtitles get me hot. I will always choose a horror movie (even a bad one) over a romantic comedy.

I live for Shark Week.

I know most of the lyrics to songs with my name in the title. I love a live show even if I don't know the band playing it. I've got a strange mix of feminist singer/songwriters and slightly misogynist hip-hop on my iPhone.

I like my beer dark, my coffee strong and my food spicy. Indian, Greek and Middle Eastern are favorites. I could eat a burrito or tacos every day, but I don't.
The six things I could never do without
Love and laughter. Family and friends. Lip balm and good coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things I should be doing that I'm not.

And things I'm doing that I shouldn't be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something fun (at least that's the goal).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I live with my parents. I like it.
You should message me if
You want to have a summer fling.
