Unloves: Typical "Washington" conversation, humidity, and anchovies.
Also: a half-decent cook, proficient at making mix tapes (yes, they're still mixtapes in my head), a excellent sense of direction, and great at pretending I'm good at things.

Is it wrong to say I don't read books often? Is that uncool? I think I'm still a little burned out from grad school so I tend to go for articles and long-reads right now. Scientific American, Cook's Illustrated, and the Drinks Business all the time.
I listen to NPR daily. I used to think I had a Marketplace addiction. I'm okay with that.
