I am good mixture of brainy and fun I am told. Educated, cultured and love intellectualism but also having one-too-many cocktails and fun too.
non-work--thinking, going to new restaurant, drinking a new wine, connecting with friends. Reading a new book-right now, "The End of the Affair" by Graham Greene.
Cooking and baking an elaborate dinner for you. Cuisine of your choice :)
Making people feel comfortable, bringing people together and telling funny stories.They do involve a lot of tangents but apparently they are entertaining.
Oh and I am chatty...
Jeanette Winterson etc
Music: Ramones, Clash, Gossip, Serge Gainsbourg, Patti Smith, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Radiohead, Lucinda Williams, Galactic, Cocorosie, Antony and the Johnsons, Gilberto, World Music
Bossa Nova, Tribe called Quest, Black Sheep etc.
Food-um, all of it (except for fast food). Ok, despite loathing the word 'foodie" I admit to being one -- I love reading about food, consuming it, cooking, baking, learning about it, etc. It's definitely high on my list of passions. Favorites: Italian, Japanese and Mediterranean. I have been cooking lots of Turkish food recently but Italian and French desserts are my speciality.
Movies - I watch a lot of them. I tend to gravitate towards independent and foreign films..Agnes Varda. Recently loved "A Separation" and La Grande Belezza (The Great Beauty.") Love any social issue documentaries.
Smelly French and Italian Cheeses
Wine and a good Negroni cocktail. Oh make that all Campari-based drinks!
Passion, sensuality and affection.
The Ocean and the Beach.
The future,,,what gives life meaning and purpose,?
human behavior-what motivates people to act in the ways they do?
The messed up state of the world-poverty, injustice, social justice issues.
Wow, this makes me sound really heavy which I am not. :) I also think about plenty of inconsequential stuff, too, like what I want to bake and why the perfect lip gloss color is so elusive.
that's for sure...
