I work as an editor in a small publishing company. Is it stereotypical that I ended up there, considering I was an English major? I also knit. A lot. I make a mean scarf. I'm planning on opening an Etsy shop soon so I can sell them.
I love to read, but I don't love the Kindle. I just can't get into ebooks ... usually I get the ebook samples to decide if I should buy the physical book.
My dog is awesome (but I'm biased).
I am a bit of a nerd and a Nintendo fangirl. Sadly, I haven't had much time for video games lately. I am a huge fan of animation, traditional more than computer generated. Most of my DVDs are Disney movies or British dramas (love me some Downton Abbey and BBC classic book adaptations).
Disneyland is one of my favorite places. Ever. It's hard to go wrong with Disney.
I'm also involved in various charities. Mostly through my church, but also some animal rescues. Oh, and I chop off a foot of hair for Locks of Love every two years or so.
I'd like to say I'm really good at video games, but as soon I say that someone is going to wipe the floor with me in Super Smash Bros. and make me eat my words.
I've also been told I have a nice smile, but that could just be something people say.
Music: Really anything except rap. I'm not a huge fan of hip hop/club music and Country, but I listen to them on occasion. The Fray, Switchfoot, and the Video Games Live soundtracks are currently on my playlist...
Movies: Pick a Disney movie. Almost any Disney movie. Aladdin is my #1 favorite. Up, Indiana Jones 1 and 3, Star Wars Episode 4,5,6, Rudy, Office Space, BBC period dramas, and Ghostbusters round out the list of top favorites.
Shows: Person of Interest, Fringe (although this season hasn't been very good), Shark Tank, Masterpiece Classic, Twilight Zone, I Love Lucy
Food: Pizza, Cookies (any kind of dessert really), Salmon
Video Games: Myst, The Legend of Zelda Series (with Ocarina of Time being my personal favorite followed closely by Majora's Mask), Portal, Paper Mario, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
Board Games: Clue, Cranium
My watch (well I can go without it, but I'd rather not)
Writing Utensil and Notebook
Caffeine (although I'm working on cutting back)
... so, yeah, I am a big chicken.
Really, though, I tend to not respond to messages that just say "Hi" or "Hey babe." Feel free to send such messages, but just know I probably won't answer them. :)
