My life has taken some twists and turns that I never, ever could have imagined (build an oil platform in a Louisiana swamp?). Sometimes you just say yes and drive over the crest of that insane San Francisco hill and trust that there's road on the other side and that it will take you in the general direction you want to go. Or at least somewhere pretty interesting.
In conversation: My Sconnie accent. I'll probably have a little upper-Midwestern lilt for the rest of my life.
Up close: Woah, your eyes are dark! Where are your pupils?
Movies: Into Temptation, most any Ken Burns documentary (The Civil War is a favorite), Good Will Hunting, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Social Network, Finding Nemo, Gone With the Wind, Rear Window, North by Northwest, Dead Poet's Society, Inherit the Wind
Shows: Mad Men, The League, Frasier, Game of Thrones (although the books are better, as always), Entourage, South Park, Archer, Downton Abbey, The Newsroom, Project Runway
Music: Depends on my mood. Currently on a Haim / Bastile / Mackelmore kick. Lots of pop/today's hits. I also like Everlast, Johnny Cash, Death Cab for Cutie, Eminem, Blink182, and my Temptations Pandora station.
Food: my dad's buttermilk pancakes, pomegranates, corn on the cob fresh from a roadside stand, sushi, homemade ice cream, and every pastry ever.
A pen and nice journal
Sugar (seriously, diabetes would be a fate worse than death for me)
Or I'm curled up on the couch under a blanket with Netflix and my knitting. But it's definitely one of these two things.
You like a good argument now and then.
You enjoy good beer and better food with great company.
