My voice is very trans-atlantic.
I appear "non-threatening".
"Your mouth. It always appears contemptuous. Even when you're smiling. Even when you're being tender. (Which is actually a lovely juxtaposition.)"

I very much enjoy good food but to me it seems cliche and perhaps even unnecessary to make a list involving tapas, sushi, etc. I'm allergic to onion and most peppers that being said beyond the scope of limitation inherent in those categories I'm in favor of adventure-eating and dining for pleasure. I'll throw down.
Burlesque (or anything tastefully charged with sexual tension), stand-up comedy, lectures, (especially with ones that touch closely to existential thought, human relationships, or the many nuances of healthcare) and fully immersive art exhibits or performances (think Sleep No More, Then She Fell, etc) are all excellent ways to spend one's time and am dutiful to that end often.
Anything tender, anything ruthless, anything that makes me feel infinite.
I spend many conversations with people wondering if I'll ever be tolerant enough to truly accept other opinions that are different from my own. There's a lot of hypocrisy that goes along with being intolerant of people that are intolerant.
But I am the sort that chooses Atonement over The Notebook. Furthermore, Gone Girl ahead of them both.
Also, I negotiate with my alarm clock.
