My self-summary
The way to my heart?

Wit, in all its (w)iterations.

fine print: INFJ.

Also, I don't drink. Sorry!😩
What I’m doing with my life
Writing comedy and not comedy, taking pictures (, walking dogs for fun and profit, composing music, drinking coffee, listening to stand-up comedy, reading books, reviews of books, and reviews of reviews of books, listening to podcasts...about books. And death.
I’m really good at
Avoiding clichés like the plague. Ha!
Interpreting tone in everyday speech.
Calling my mom every Tuesday.
Word nerding.
De-escalating arguments.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Interviews in the Paris Review are perennial favorites. Recently read and learned a lot from Didion's Play It As It Lays. Creepy. Just finished reading Where'd You Go Bernadette which I enjoyed. Now I'm reading Avid Reader, influential book editor (and former The New Yorker editor) Robert Gottlieb's recently published memoir. Inside baseball for sure but it's great! Just started reading Submission by Michel Houellebecq. I'll let you know...
I read some Chekhov plays a while back. They're a little on-the-nose. "Anya Petrovna. I'm so depressed because of my conflicted feelings for the Governess Sasha Alexyavich. It's all so unfortunate and I'm the only one to blame and yet why do I lash out at everyone? And why won't anyone loan me any more money even though it's known throughout the village that I never pay my lenders in a timely manner or at all?" Condensed, paraphrased Chekhov. You're welcome.

I have strong feelings about movies. Or as I sometimes refer to them - films. Favorite directors? Cronenberg, Akerman, Resnais, Rohmer, Desplechin, Denis, Lynne Ramsay among many others.

Fleabag on Amazon Prime is fantastic! I also love Difficult People on Hulu. Other favorites include Mr. Show, You're the Worst, Master of None, 30Rock and Bob's Burgers among many others. Garth Marenghi's Dark Place is a hoot and a half! YouTube it!

Over the years I've listened to a lot of jazz and progressive rock and pop from the 70s through the 90s but these days I don't listen to much music at all. It's embarrassing how much music I don't listen to. Update 11/19/16: listening to a lot of New Pornographers lately. Every one of their records is great but I come back most frequently to their debut Mass Romantic for its exuberance.

I like strong flavors. Indian is my favorite. I am also not opposed to hoagies.

I've been a stand up comedy nerd for years. Favorites include Paul F. Tompkins, Maria Bamford, Patton Oswalt among many others.
Six things I could never do without
A sense of porpoise.
Raised eyebrows for emphasis.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Snappy comebacks. Three years after the fact.
How big and complex the world is.
Interpersonal power dynamics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Gilmore Girls. Always.
You should message me if
You want to talk about the Human Condition. And eat cheese.
The two of us
