I've moved around quite a bit so far and traveled even more, but I really adore DC and think I want to make it my home. There are so many fascinating, passionate, smart people here. The weather's rotten, but it's a small price to pay for the conversation.
I'm generally good for a funny one-liner if you catch me in the right mood, which catches people's attention (especially if it's particularly inappropriate).
Movies.... Not to be repetitive, but movies are great! What's not to love about movies?! Ghost World is a long-standing favorite for me. I loved Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Elf and Love Actually make Christmas extra bonus awesome. And the new Star Trek? So great.
I like music, but I spend very little time thinking about it. I'm currently obsessed with Florence + The Machine.
Food: All of it. Except olives. Olives are vile.
Foreign policy, and foreign countries, and interesting places I had never heard of until very recently (Quick! Name the countries in which Bangui, Bujumbura, and Baku are located. No Google allowed.)
Running. (But I won't bore you with it - it's really not interesting to anyone else.)
People - friends and acquaintances and near strangers who made a strong impression. I'm an extrovert to the core, and I work a lot of things out by thinking through relationships, interactions, and conversations, real and constructed.
