My self-summary
I'm strangely optimistic about my life and about things in general, when I'm really stressed or overworked I find I can be easily delighted by little things like finding a new favorite coffee shop, but in general what I live for is spending time with folks I'm close to doing fun things or catching up with each other over a drink or meal.
What I’m doing with my life
What *am* I doing with my life? Trying not to forget that you only get one chance at it and enjoying it enough not to be reminded of that often.
I’m really good at
Well, it's definitely not writing on-line personals. Hmm. Oh, I'm really really good in the kitchen. Shopping at one of Seattle's many local markets, buying produce, meats, flowers and sundries from different small shop keepers, and then cooking at home for a meal with friends with music in the background is as close as I've gotten to pure bliss...with the exception of you know...
The first things people usually notice about me
Interesting question: I'm going to pose this to my friends. Stay tuned.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many favorite books to mention. A couple that I just finished that blew my mind are 1) Justin Torres, We the Animals; 2) Glenway Wescott, The Pilgrim Hawk; 3) Colm Toibin, Story of the Night. I can spend hours also reading recipe books if they include pictures of the food. A couple movies that have stood the test of time: My Beautiful Laundrette; Cinema Paradiso; anything by Satyajit Ray; Sophie's Choice
The six things I could never do without
friends, books and bookstores, sun, diverse eateries and restaurants, movies and good tv serials, airplanes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social inequality and what "equality" really means and looks like. (That sounds kind of geeky or esoteric. Sadly I really do think about this all the time!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, renting a movie, or having a dinner with friends.
You should message me if
you've suffered through this and actually read to the end.
