I like to be around people that are childlike, but not childish.
I mentor an amazing little girl through Big Brothers Big Sisters.
I love the mountains.
I haven't had cable in over 15 years.
I think people who start most sentences with "I" are likely selfish jerks.
I sing and dance all the time because music makes life better.
Since the age of 22, I have left the US at least three times a year; traveling helps me better understand myself and humans in general.
I think Stanley Kubrick, Danny Boyle and Wes Anderson make rad films.
If you are a good/interesting/beautiful person I'd like to have you in my life.
Movies I watch again and again: Heavenly Creatures, The Goonies, Empire Records, Once, Amelie, 28 Days Later, Rushmore, Full Metal Jacket, The Usual Suspects, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Pan's Labyrinth, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Labyrinth, The Silence of the Lambs, Leon: The Professional, American History X, The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride, Shaun of the Dead, Office Space, The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I love Hitchcock and old Disney (Bedknobs and Broomsticks!) flicks, all the Peanuts movies and anything that makes you feel good or think long after the movie ends.
Authors/Books to get lost in: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and all Lewis Carroll books/poetry/puzzles, Chuck Palahniuk, Oscar Wilde (perhaps more for his lifestyle than his actual writings), Kurt Vonnegut (especially Mother Night), Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss (serious genius), Bill Watterson, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Fahrenheit 451, The Road, The Secret Garden...
Food: I am a vegetarian that eats a lot of red meat. And sadly, I have Celiac Disease which means gluten actually tries to kill me. Worst food allergy ever.
