As shown by my name, I am shy and a bit of an introvert. Once I feel comfortable around someone, they may wish I returned to that shy personality. When comfortable with you, I talk...a lot.
I grew up in Maryland, moved out of the area for a while, then moved back about 5 years ago. I moved to Baltimore from DC about a year ago. It is such a cool little city and I am totally smitten. I am no longer making the ridiculous Baltimore to DC commute, but found a job a little closer to home. I have so much more times for activities!
I have a coffee addiction that rivals Lorelai Gilmore or Dave Nelson.
Outside of work, I homebrew, normally in fruity or honey varieties. I'm a huge hockey fan and have realized it is the only time I watch proper tv, as my cable box always seems to be on CSN. Now that I am no longer commuting 4 hour a day, I think I need to take up more hobbies to fill up my time.
Playing darts after 1.5 beers. Proven to be the sweet spot of a game of cricket or 301.
Remembering what other movie or TV show "that guy" has appeared.
Firefly, Buffy, IT Crowd, Parks and Rec, Eureka, and Warehouse 13. I'm a huge Whedon nerd, even enjoying Dollhouse. My favorite TV show of all time is Gilmore Girls. It is my go to marathon.
Admittedly, I do not watch as many movies as I would like. I would not go so far to say that my favorite movie is books, though. Movies that I can watch over and over are the Before... movies with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delphy, LoTR and Amelie.
Books:I always have my kindle or a comic or two in my purse. I'm drawn to sci fi/fantasy, generally. I love the Harry Potter books, anything by Ursula Leguin or Margaret Atwood and the Belegariad/Mallorean. Plus tons more. Oh! also travel literature. I have to reread Blue Highways at least once a year.
Music: I love Belle and Sebastian, The Decemberists, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Tori Amos, Rilo Kiley. I am always up for seeing a show, especially because DC/Baltimore have so many great venues.
Food: I am open to anything. I love finding new restaurants and trying new things. The only thing I can think that I do not like (may incur the wrath of the women's health industry with this) is yogurt. As a condiment, yes, as a potential lunch, yick. I also love scotch, the peatier the better! Does it taste a little like dirt? Yes? Sign me up!
This is not a criticism if you happen to have one. I truly do not understand it.
