My self-summary
I deleted everything I wrote a few months ago because I feel like a different person since I created this profile. Better, more free, more in touch with solitude (working on that!) and really happy to have moved to the Northampton area. Tonight I was enjoying dinner with my friend and the guy next to me offered me a taste of his hot pepper tequila. I tried it and it was really spicy.
What I’m doing with my life
You mean other than working full time and parenting and co-parenting? Until I had children, I spent my free time checking out movies and films, going to theater and sometimes to the symphony, and doing a lot of hiking, reading, and gardening. Now I do some of that with them, and a lot of it when I can squeeze it in.
I’m really good at
cooking without a recipe, artsy craftsy things (but not art), landscaping and gardening, organizing my life (and the lives of others), helping my super smart friends do the crossword (I am usually just the scribe)
The first things people usually notice about me
You will see when you meet me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez will forever be my favorite book. I love William Faulker, Flannery O'Connor, Nora Zeal Hurston, (lots of southern writers here. not sure why), Herman Melville, George Saunders, the New Yorker, Harpers, The New York Times Book Review... I will read ANYTHING except horror or violent fiction (I used to read a lot of Steven King - been there, done that.)

Last year I read "Far from the Tree" by Andrew Solomon and am still talking about it to everyone who will listen. That's a must read for every parent. When I packed up my stuff for a recent move, I had almost 60 boxes of books. Sigh.

I'm about to start season six of Mad Men, am enjoying Freaks and Geeks, and over the years, my favorite shows have been the Sopranos, LOST, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Arrested Development before it tanked, and Veronica Mars. But it's cool if you don't know what those are - most haven't been on for a long, long time. At this point, it's a lot of Curious George. And Downton Abbey.... oh my gosh, how could I have forgotten Breaking Bad? Breaking Bad sums up everything I love. Meth labs, hot guys, and Malcolm in the Middle. (If you didn't get that as a joke, that's okay.)
Six things I could never do without
a bottle of water, books (all of them?), my camera
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I can pack for my children's lunches that they will actually eat
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays I have my children home with me, so romping in the backyard, going for a bike ride, and then crashing after bedtime - that's typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Probably will only admit this in person!
You should message me if
you love talking about the latest book you've read or movie you've seen and you want to tell me about it.
The two of us
