The blonde is natural, although I decided to be a redhead for a while, and the tattoos are real. I'm a realist who tries to be more optimistic. I used to be a costumer/costume designer before I decided to switch to the business side of the arts.
I love the possibility that a blank sheet of paper holds just as you're about to write something. I'm a total grammar/spelling snob. I love to shop for school/office supplies. I love the accomplishment I feel when I can point to something and say, "I made that." I love the color cobalt blue with mad intensity. I love to have my picture taken and I cheese horribly.
I get lots of questions asking about my screen name. It's a derivation of a nickname I've had since high school. It is in no way related to any African or Caribbean religions, as fascinating as they are.
If you disagree with/don't like any of the following, we're probably going to have a bad time:
- Gay marriage/adoption
- A woman's right to choose
- Equal pay for equal work
- Healthcare reform
- Gender equality
As you may have guessed from the above, I'm pretty liberal politically. I'm friends with (and related to) lots of conservative people, but relationship-wise, that just doesn't fly.
Also, none of this, please:

As with the books, I really appreciate a movie that surprises me.

(D) I listen to everything except country and contemporary christian, but I've been listening to a lot of hip hop and R&B lately. I've also gotten into Muse and Florence and the Machine. I like music I can dance to, so some of my CD collection is a bit flaky, but it's so fun! I also know lots of rap lyrics, which amuses my friends endlessly when I sing along to the radio.
(D) Italian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, sushi, Mexican, standard American fare, and of course, dessert. I've recently become a more adventurous eater, but I'm still kind of picky about some things. I'm on a mission to find the best Mexican restaurant in DC. Lots of the ones I've been to have really heinous rice...
Really, who can choose a favorite? I love lots of things.
what to do in the big city...
What's with all the people into camping and hiking on this site?
3/17/15 Edit: Definitely going to hit up the pirate bar a few blocks from my apartment!
I'm pretty balls-out honest, so there's not much I'm not willing to admit. If I'm comfortable with you, I'm happy to share.
I LOVE a tall man, and I like to feel feminine next to my date. I'm definitely not a petite woman. I'm looking for a tall geek to cozy up with on the couch, but who will humor me by going out dancing once in a while.
