Also, I'm a recent-ish home owner, which means I spend a lot of time aspiring to tear down walls and renovate whole rooms of my house over the course of a weekend on what I imagine will be no more than a $14 budget. In reality, though, most weekends I can rarely motivate to even clean my shower.
I see on here that a lot of you dudes love the outdoors. Me, too. I love the outdoors, in the sense that I love sitting on a patio any time it's actually nice out. In the event that a live creature from the outdoors creeps near me, I will napalm the hell out of that thing.
I do not camp. Ever.
I think I'm anti-hunting in general, but I'm not a vegetarian. I know, I know - the meat comes from somewhere, I just prefer not to dwell on it.
That said, I am very into local restaurants and locally-sourced food (just, you know, not "slaughtered in back" kind of sourced).
I'm anti-chain restaurants, in general. If you try to make me go to an Olive Garden, I will spit at you. (But if you happen to once see me sitting across the room enjoying the endless salad bowl with my mother, let us never speak of it.)
I like perusing OKC profiles and thinking to myself, “that lady’s robe hanging on the bathroom door in this guy’s mirrored selfie profile pic … I wonder if it’s his mom’s. Or sister’s. Or elderly grandmother’s. There’s no way it’s his wife’s or girlfriend’s because that would just be … well, stupid.”
But it’s great to see so many men in Richmond caring for / cohabitating with female relatives! Family should be first.
Other things about me:
- I like passionate conversation about almost anything, but especially politics, media, social justice, and the annoyance of Gen-Yers who have no appreciation for how hard life was in the 90s, when we were all bundled up in flannel regardless of season and paying actual money for long distance – on a land line.
- I like dive bars, independent restaurants, Fan spots and good wine.
- I can parallel park you under the table.
- I heart boys with good grammar.
I write for a living, in a full-time I get paid for it kind of way, which is a pretty sweet job.
Beyond that, I hang with friends, dote on my two nieces whom I adore, and pin the hell out of home renovation projects.
That said, I also read the "Twilight" series. Judge me. Go ahead, judge me fellas, just as I judge your senseless love of "On the Road."
Movies: "Friday" is my favorite film of all time ... well, it and "Life is Beautiful" - so basically, stupid comedies and intense dramas. These days I'm far more partial to good TV and I love: "The West Wing," Arrested Development," "Scandal," "The Daily Show," "Frontline," Buffy, "Girls" - and, again, too many to name.
4. Friends & Family.
6. A sledgehammer.
But so I wonder, if I tear down the wall where it sits, will my house explode? It is actually connected to anything? Do I have to have it removed by some sort of "professional" (read: my friend's husband who seems kind of handy) or can I just tear into it and hope for the best?
