Also I manage a pie shop and drink a lot of coffee. But more whiskey.
Oh, and of course, DANCING DANCING DANCING DANCING.
Spending too much money on food and drink, whether it be indulging in a new restaurant experience or going wacky at Rainbow Market and making myself food for the next few days. I will eat most anything, but am particularly fond of Indian, Thai, and breakfast foods. More pragmatically speaking, though, I would truly perish if it were not for Mexican, which used to mean burritos but then I stopped eating gluten so now it's dinner plates and tacos.
I give a damn good massage.
I am patient, understanding and nonjudgmental, but also give people a lot of shit. It's okay, though, I can take it as well.
I'm REALLY good at laughing loudly enough to upset my friends' roommates as we stumble in late at night or while we're watching something that is funny on any level. Laughing is my coping mechanism and I feel all situations are appropriate for some sort of laughter.
Which reminds me, I am often vulgar, politically incorrect and offensive to those who just don't get it. But yeah I'm a feminist too.
I've been told I'm pretty good at playing guitar and singing but I'm perpetually under-practiced so I won't say more about that.
If I feel good, I'm great at finding beauty everywhere and being in love with the world. If I feel bad, I'm good at making my self-destruction into an event I still manage to enjoy.
Whereas I don't read enough books, I watch too much Hulu, which is easy with the renaissance of good tv lately, including Stewart and Colbert, SNL, 30 rock, Community, Louie, Parks and Rec...
Movies? This list is too hard because my memory is terrible. I like weird indie flicks, like Wristcutters and Waking Life. Finally just finished Donny Darko and it was incredible. I like weird epics like Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and Wings of Desire. I tend toward the arty and off-kilter but also Up made me cry a little bit. I took a film class at Berkeley that opened me up to a lot, but I haven't seen nearly enough of the classics so if you wanna watch some old movies...
And then there was Music, Oy. I used to be a snob and then I got over it. If you want we can argue over the viability of genres; I am happy to but here's a highly abstracted list in terms of my arbitrary blah blah--will probably add to it as I think of names:
Classics: Beatles, Zeppelin, Zappa, Velvet Underground, Bowie, Nina Simone, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Neil Young, Harry Nilsson, Paul Simon, Bill Withers, Pink Floyd...
Blues: old delta stuff like R.L. Burnside, Howling Wolf, etc.
Jazz: Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Brad Mehldau, Mile Davis...
EDM (I go to a lot of shows in this vein because I love dancing): Fake Blood, Jack Beats, my homies AndDrop!, Simian Mobile Disco, Boys Noize, Afro Jack, Four Tet, SBTRKT, MSTRKRFT...
Pop: Beyonce, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, that catchy-as-hell Macklemore song...
Hip Hop: People Under the Stairs, Das Racist, The Coup, Diggable Planets, but aside from the "underground" shit I once saw Snoop and Dre at Coachella and it melted my brain.
Indie (what I most actively listen to): Radiohead, radiohead, radiohead, Tame Impala, Alt-J, Ty Segall, St. Vincent, Tune-Yards, Bon Iver, LCD Soundsystem, Mark Ronsan, Simian (pre-Mobile Disco), Grizzly Bear, DJ Shadow, Sigur Rós, Deerhunter, Ratatat, Sufjan Stevens, Rufus Wainwright, Hercules and Love Affair, CocoRosie, TV on the Radio, Fiona Apple, Stereolab, Fleet Foxes, Andrew Bird, Amon Tobin, Fiery Furnaces, !!!, Little Dragon...
