I'm laid-back, affectionate, easy-going, open-minded, and quite social. I am perennially known as a connector among friends and friend groups. Sarcasm is a lifestyle and while I loved the warm, chilled-out nature of West Coast folks, I missed the East Coast grit and feel more at home here. I often say inappropriate things just to see how people will react - this did not always go over well in SF. However I did adopt the whole "healthy lifestyle" thing in California and run and bike a whole bunch.
Although somewhat dry on paper, in real life I often come off as overly enthusiastic, as I describe many of my favorites as "A-MAZING!!" (and get made fun of for it). I generally attend a whole mess of concerts every month and am excited to venture out of the city whenever possible. Basically addicted to new experience at all times - I have a hard time saying no to most harebrained schemes. One could say I'm the opposite of a couch potato. I live for spontaneity, especially around trips. If I'm making fun of you it probably means I like you.
Moving pictures: Mulholland Drive, Rushmore, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Donnie Darko, LA Story, Heat, Amelie, 12 Monkeys, Brick, A Serious Man, The Wire, Twin Peaks, Party Down. I may idolize David Lynch just a wee bit and I have a deep love for obscure British comedy. Completely obsessed with Black Mirror and High Maintenance right now. Veep as well.
I read voraciously. Some favorites: The Master and Margarita, House of Leaves, Cloud Atlas, Mysteries of Pittsburgh, Bel Canto, Time's Arrow, Lolita, The Girl on the Fridge.
I eat voraciously too. To all spicy foods, pickled things, and salty fish: get in my mouth immediately. Russ and Daughters forever and ever, amen.
