i like having conversations about substantial [& fascinating!] things & experiencing beautiful forms of art, life, adventures, et cetera. but i'm new to the city & not entirely sure where to find such things in these here environs.
i'm afraid i am not looking for sex or romance. strictly platonic!
(i've never been adept at moderation.)
among other things.
what I wish they knew simultaneously: that me being shy has absolutely NOTHING to do with my self-esteem. i'm introspective, dammit...not ashamed! make the distinction!
(if my hair isn't pinned up, though, that usually takes the cake.)
Film: anything by Ingmar Bergman, Luis Buñuel, Akira Kurosawa, Woody Allen, & others...i'll watch anything that's in the Criterion Collection (or American Film Archives) at least once. favorite films include Wings of Desire & the Saragossa Manuscript. i watch the 1931 Threepenny Opera when i'm bummed out.
Shows, in absolutely no order whatsoever: Community, Parks & Recreation, Northern Exposure, Monty Python, Kids in the Hall, 30 Rock, Louie, MythBusters, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, that neat recent British revamping of the Sherlock Holmes series, & anything written by Aaron Sorkin. also, TED.com is my homepage...i love TEDtalks.
Food: going through a big spinach and kale phase right now. avocados are wonderful. i like to make green smoothies...i have narcolepsy. long story short, the only way for me to eat food during the day without falling asleep is via smoothie.
