I live up in Rogers Park and really love it. I have a pit bull and have become an advocate on behalf of the breed. I am a little nerdy, a little girly, a little hippie/treehugger. I love reading, going to movies, trying new restaurants, and walking along the shore of Lake Michigan. My newest hobby is genealogy - I've always loved history but not the "this war happened on these dates" kind taught in school, more in an everyday, "what was life like for people back then?" way and old census records and immigration paperwork make it very real and accessible.
I'm looking for dates and maybe a relationship. Looking for a man, NOT a boy - please see Mindy Kaling's thoughts on the matter because she explains it so well.
Movies: Everything from light fluffy chick flicks to Best Picture nominees. Except horror. No horror movies. My all-time favorite may be Memento, up there with Lars and the Real Girl, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, (500) Days of Summer, and In Bruges. I also like some fluffier movies - Mean Girls, Clueless, 10 Things I Hate About You. My favorite Pixar movie is Finding Nemo.
TV Shows: 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Flight of the Conchords, Big Bang Theory, Community, How I Met Your Mother, the Mindy Project. I've been progressing through the Amazon Originals and I loved The Man in the High Castle. Working through Mozart in the Jungle now.
Music: Beatles, Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds (Five), showtunes. Lately I've been into the Plain White T's and Sara Bareilles.
Food: I'm a vegetarian, but other than that I'm not very picky. I love Indian, Thai and Mexican in the winter. Sushi and salads in the summer. I love anything with eggplant, mango or avocado. I have a major sweet tooth and a slight addiction to Starbucks' iced cinnamon dolce lattes. My favorite dessert is creme brulee.
