i was vegetarian for 23 years... and for some reason started eating seafood. i'm all about giving into temptation.
i grew up on 70s rock and roll, campy sci-fi and left wing liberalism.
i sometimes snort when i laugh.
my super hero name would be SuperAwesome. Totally.
delicious bird is almost a translation of my real name.
i believe in altered states, be it from a night of live music, a night of making love, or a night of heavy conversation. all three in one night would be sublime.
when i'm happy i wake up singing old Stevie Wonder songs, although occasionally "Chopping Broccoli" from SNL pops in.
i'd rather have deeply personal often inappropriate conversations than make small talk.
i take responsibility.
i'm honest, even when it's challenging or painful.
i dream of plane crashes, zombies (before they were "cool"), little girls wielding machetes, falling off edges into the dark abyss, and saving the world.
i cry at all of the really sappy movies.
i'm a terrible dancer, but i love having dance parties.
i have the long term memory of an elephant, but the short term memory of whatever is the opposite of an elephant.
i wanted to be Indiana Jones as a kid. now i'd just like to date him, circa Temple of Doom.
i smell good. i make my own perfume so no one else smells like me.
i believe in doing what drives you, even if it is considered taboo.
i often get lost in a tangent, but if you stay with me, i usually find my way back to the beginning.
i can listen to radiohead, beethoven, frank sinatra, tool, old dirty bastard, patsy cline and toto all with equal amounts of passion. music can bring out every emotion within me.
the idea of being in love scares the hell out of me and i can’t imagine anything more wonderful.
(they usually have a little bit of my blood in them... hand grated!)
but more than likely it's that i often wear my long hair in two braids. you'd be surprised by how many old men have told me that i remind them of the girl who sat in front of them in primary school, and how they would dip her pigtails into their inkwells. :)

Yes, I watch tv. Usually by binge watching a full series at a time ---Legion, the OA, Westworld, Stranger Things, Daredevil, Fargo, Game of Thrones, The Leftovers, Walking Dead, and I will always have a soft spot for Buffy.
my musical taste is pretty far reaching.

I love food, and those who cook well. Although I don't eat meat, i have no issues sticking my hands in some ground beef to make you a hamburger. my happy place can sometimes be found in a banana and peanut butter sandwich. i could easily be sustained on cioppino, cornichons, and parmigiano (but not together). Justin's dark chocolate peanut butter cups are divine.
traveling as often as possible
a big comfy bed
