I've written for as long as I can remember. Quite literally, before I had the words, I wrote stories with pictures. I think that goes a long way toward explaining my affinity for comic books and films. I fully admit to being sort of scattered in my interests. I'm a bit of a nerd and a complete cinephile. There are few things I won't watch -from obscure arthouse docs to the most asinine big budget comedies (although I tend not to like B&W westerns).
As a kid, my most serious and enduring aspiration was to be a veterinarian. That is, until calculus and chemistry royally kicked my ass in college. That's when I discovered I am a prime candidate for the first seat (right behind the driver) on the short bus. Word to the wise, don't ever ask me to help you calculate the tip or tell you the sale price. I'll just make you lament the value of education in America (and potentially cost you money).
I think that admission is a viable choice for the "Most private thing I'm willing to admit" entry (but I told you here, bonus!)
Currently, I'm back in school (finally) plotting a complete career change.
My favorite film...not sure, don't think I have one. I've seen too many at this point. As a child, my step-dad's BFF owned a video store (it was like my own personal cinematic candy store - can you say R-rated movie marathons?!?!) As a result, we owned over 500 movies ourselves, plus the numerous other hundreds at my disposal. So picking just a few is really tough for me:
When Harry Met Sally
The Running Man
Rocky Horror Picture Show
You've Got Mail
A Few Good Men
Disney's Robin Hood (animated)
Beverly Hills Cop I/II
All About Eve
The Hunt for Red October
The Lost Boys
The Color Purple
Casino Royale (2006)
The Princess Bride
Coming to America
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Jumping Jack Flash
Imitation of Life (1950)
A Patch of Blue
Almost all of the John Grisham adaptations...
TV: I watch more than I should admit- Assorted L&Os (SVU, UK, etc.), Game of Thrones, Scandal, House of Cards (US), The Good Wife, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Americans, Archer, The New Girl, Homeland (at the urging of family and friends), Assorted Marvel TV properties, Sleepy Hollow, Fargo, The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, Grey's...
Musically, I tend to be more of a generalist. A survey of my iPod would uncover a preponderance of R&B/Hip Hop and 80's Pop but I'm open to all sorts of music. I'm completely willing to be musically educated.
...a blanket (I can't stand to be cold)
pen and paper (I am a writer after all)
sugar (in any form, I have a crazy *insane* sweet tooth)
A good book
BONUS: I made up my H.S. yearbook-quote and gave it a random attribution (for legitimacy).
You think I'm pretty cute.
You can appreciate a little self-deprecating humor.
You've discovered that dinner with friends is always a good time.
You enjoy the actual experience of movie-going (cool theater, warm tub 'o popcorn, giant screen, someone to share it all with).
You love a good conversation, a bad joke or a great book.
...And especially if you have something interesting to say- I love that!
