(New update - not changing screen name (I don't feel like I should ever be an A-list member of anything) - and I'm now in New Haven, so show me around.)
I've always thought of myself as a dreamer, an optimist and the kind of person who goes after what he wants. Things that I am not: a quitter, a wallflower, disloyal. What I am is patient. Tolerant. Committed to my family and my close friends. I can make you empanadas from scratch. Chances are I can also make you laugh. A lot.
As for books, when I'm not buried in a newspaper, I'm usually reading non-fiction. I love a good biography, but I think the best ones are written by people who are not ghost-writing them in conjunction with their subject. Autobiographies are great, but they can leave a lot out. That's why I would have loved it if someone could have filled out all these sections for me.
Good coffee (I don't put DD's in that category, sorry)
