I spend a lot of time thinking about

&
"Does the mind rule the body or does the body rule the mind? I don't know."

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

- I was born with two identically crooked pinkies

- I stopped watching "The New Girl" after that scene where Jess pretends to be Elvis at Nick's dad's funeral and I'm a happier person for it

- The best comic book movie was "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind"
You should message me if

- You know what you want and you get it
- You didn't vote for Trump and never would in a million years

Let's go to art shows or museums, hang out at the zoo or conservatory, eat delicious foods, watch great films, make cookies, and drink good beers.
