I might have a rough exterior when you first meet me, but I'm very loving and caring once you get through it. I tend to like non-traditional people - crazy, weird, and quirky. People who have ideas that amuse and fascinate me.
A few summers ago, I drove cross country and back with my pit-bull, Melvin. It was quite an epic journey. The trip reminded me how good it feels to be out in nature. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm really a city person.
I love the Moth and This American Life and I want to make my own shows like that, but I get overwhelmed about where to start. I like talking to old people and hearing about how things used to be. I would time travel if I could.
I was raised Jewish and feel a connection to others who were also. But I am not religious or practicing.
I also enjoy food. Food is good.
I'm being a great dog mom.
I'm getting obsessed with projects in my house and garden. I want to replace all the ugly home depot doors in my house with salvaged doors, but sizing has proven to be a challenge. I haven't given up, though!
I'm making quilts (inspired by Gees Bend)
I often go antiquing on Sunday mornings.
Otherwise... good question - what AM I doing with my life??
Tv: all the usuals although I don't watch a ton - only streaming. The office, breaking bad, mad men, the wire, arrested dev, Louis ck, colbert, daily, curb, house of cards - basically i like it if it's funny, clever, and/or good.
Movies: besides goonies? oh, marx brothers!
Music: american routes, new orleans brass bands, regina spektor, leonard cohen, paul simon - and the patsy cline pandora station.
Food: baked mac and cheese is the ultimate best, but not so good for me. I love butter
How to turn junk into something cool.
Picture frames - I find cool ones at flea markets and thrift stores and I cut them down and reframe random stuff.
I also think a lot about education and how to set kids up for success in life. And community development.
I also think about guinea pigs because they are cute and squirrels because they are agile....and cute. Basically, I like rodents.
