I'm a girl of contrasts. I like to dress up for fine dining or the theatre and get filthy gardening in the rain (or a having a garden hose fight. I'm flexible.) I enjoy traveling near and far and getting cozy on my couch with my slanket (don't judge!), a cat or four, and my Netflix queue. I might jump on public benches and belt show tunes to stunned passers-by, and I might try to be invisible. I reenact history-as-a-fantasy and, as often as possible, indulge in modern luxury. My major passion is cooking. Specifically, I research and try to re-create pre-1600 recipes from around the world. I can also cook up a steak that is so good that you'll never want to grill again. Two things I fantasize about are someone taking me on a vacation I don't have to plan and a bookcase wall that pivots to reveal a secret lair.
And I'm attached. Happily. I'd love to make new friends, though - especially those who like cooking, gardening, and British teevee/movies.
Shows: The Amazing Race, Top Chef, Masterchef, Bluebloods, Major Crimes, and a bunch of stuff I won't admit to. (Sunglasses off.) Still mourning the loss of CSI: Miami. (Sunglasses on.)
Music: The playlist currently contains: electro, neo, and classic swing; 80s/90s techno; opera; bluegrass; Broadway (but not ALW - ick!); and odd covers of other songs ("Mr. Crowley" as a tango, anyone?).
Food: Nearly everything.
