It's when I get comfortable with people that my best traits emerge.
Also my Spanish/castellano is not okay. It is damn good. You would be surprised...

One of my favorite things to do in Seattle is the Decibel Festival. Another is SIFF. Readings at Elliott Bay are fun. SAM and other Seattle museums.
I am ridiculously happy with my paella pan. My favorite Seattle restaurants are Ocho and Westward, and I will eat sushi nearly any time. This is the best food city I have ever lived in!
