I'm the analytical flower child, the outdoor-enthusiast with (hella) urban flare, the vigilant environmentalist with a car, the East-Coast-small-liberal-arts-school-educated farmer. I am the NPR-listening, bike-to-work promoting, surfing-climbing-camping, liberal values-toting human that you've come to expect from any good San Francisco girl. But I'm the appropriate chameleon; I'll show up to a party, bejeweled and citified with salt on my eyelashes and dirt under my fingernails.
Sneakers, Some Kind of Wonderful, Clue, Goonies, Better off Dead... seeing a pattern? yeah, okay, I love all kinds of movies, but if you ask me for my favorites, I'm going to rattle off your standard, 80's coming-of-age classics because truthfully, they feel like home and they never disappoint. Oh, and obviously Dazed and Confused, the Princess Bride, and Bring it On...
Led Zeppelin, the Police, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, CSNY, Bob Dylan, Gillian Welch, Wilco, Del McCoury, David Grisman, Beck, Pearl Jam, Prince, U2, most of what happened in the 80's... I know, there it is again.
Bi-rite salted caramel, avocados, peaches, sushi, cabbage in all of its brilliant forms, pupusas, Primavera salsa, la Taqueria burritos, veggies from my farm. Thanks to my profession, and the city that raised me, I'm slightly entrenched in the sustainable food movement...

And let this not rule out my Texan admirers; I definitely have SA pride, visit my family there once a year, and own (and regularly sport) the appropriate accoutrement to prove it.
