My self-summary
i am an introvert sort of trying to get out; joyful; very accepting of differences; big on improvising the day
What I’m doing with my life
i work in translation; seek the new and possibly the insolite; am interested in people's stories
I’m really good at
listening; reassuring; laughing; and today i'm adding to this list, because it seems to be more and more true: getting people off balance without trying
The first things people usually notice about me
that i remind them of someone. 80% of people say this upon first meeting me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Belle du Seigneur, Albert Cohen (and his other books); Emmanuel Carrère; Patrick Modiano; Émile Zola; Gabrielle Roy; Jean-Paul Sartre.
Breaking Bad. Kaamelott. Broadchurch, Happy Valley, Scott & Bailey, The Fall, and the other police procedurals that the English hold the secret of.
French films from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s incl.; Eastern European cinema; films involving sociopathic children ("The Bad Seed", "Children's Hour", like that).
All foods except mutton brain and eggplant
The six things I could never do without
my toothbrush; my comb; the sound of rain; the sight of trees; good reads; longer moments of peace of mind than of chaos
I spend a lot of time thinking about
injustice; cruelty; what makes us the way we are; what it might take for me to get writing again; chocolate
On a typical Friday night I am
having a glass of red, alone or with a friend, and relaxing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i subscribe to a strict zero-tolerance policy on puns, which are jokes without the punchline. frustrating. also, most other bons mots i'm wary of. they bring nothing to the table. on the table they are the pretty napkins you can't use cause they don't absorb
