I’m really good at
some parts of my job, like handling cranky customers/clients, engaging strangers in conversation, keeping a neutral tone of voice even when the other person is clearly... confused.

drawing, but I'm really lazy about it...and it haunts me.

finding cool stuff at thrift stores and estate sales. I have lots of great mismatched dishes that are each pleasing in their own way and I am a slave to my love for beautiful old illustrated books

playing games. Like dominoes and cribbage and gin. Poker is good, but I really hate Monopoly. Also I'm pretty sure I could win one of those game shows.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sunny disposition. I can be disgustingly cheerful. Way too much smiling and laughing. That doesn't mean I don't get sad, angry, upset, or frustrated. I just don't think it's fair to take it out on other people. That's what I'm going for, anyway.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Blade Runner, Across the Universe, Fight Club, The American President, Hitchcock, anything with Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn, Pan's Labyrinth,

Books: BA in English so I have read many classics and love some of them (William Blake, W. B. Yeats, Dylan Thomas, Matthew Arnold ("Dover Beach") mythology and the Arthurian legend.) Mostly now I read sci-fi/speculative fiction. Favorite authors include China Mieville, Neil Gaimen, Tad Williams, Scott Lynch, William Gibson, Stephen Donaldson, Dan Simmons, Gabriel Garcia-Marquez. Enjoy some gratuitous steam-punk zombie apocalypse stuff.

TV shows: Dr. Who, lots of British stuff, Sherlock, Luther, Weeds, Californication, Jon Stewart, MSNBC,

Music: All the 60's/70's psychedelic, hippie, free-love, end-the-war-now, rock and roll. Motown. Panic at the Disco, They Might Be Giants, Presidents of the United States of America, Sarah Jaffe, Dave Matthews ("Crash Into Me"), Counting Crows, Peter Gabriel, Roxy Music, Sting and The Police, Elvis Costello, David Bowie, Squeeze, Sufjan Stevens, Cowboy Junkies, Joni Mitchell, Deathcab for Cutie, 10,000 Maniacs, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Regina Specter. Wolfmother.

The six things I could never do without
NPR, access to good books (and a pair of cute reading glasses,) comfortable shoes, cotton clothes, and that really good crunchy ice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a receptionist of sorts. It's a lot harder than you think. I'll just say this. Since I have had this job, I have developed a strange aversion to talking on the phone. I call my mom every night...but only because she is 98 and it makes her feel good...and she gave me life. We have very little to say to each other, but it's the least I can do for her. Still, I don't want any long conversations on the phone. I prefer texting, thank you very much.
