My self-summary
I work too much, live alone and sort of like it that way. But I think it might be time to make a reasonable effort to change.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a newspaper reporter. Yes, we still exist. When I'm not doing that, I'm reading children's books, skating, planning travel in the U.S. or panicking about driving.
I’m really good at
talking, thinking, arguing, listening, trouble-shooting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I sound like I'm British. I am, it's just complicated.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Arthur at the Crossing-Places, Journey to the River Sea, Charlotte Sometimes, Coram Boy, The Book Thief, Gulliver's Travels, The Moonstone, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Decline and Fall, A Home at the End of the World, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, Tales of the City, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, Oranges are not the Only Fruit, Wise Children.

A Matter of Life and Death, His Girl Friday, Show Me Love, All About My Mother, Yours, Mine and Ours, Igby Goes Down, Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, The Cutting Edge, Chariots of Fire, A League of their Own, Glee, Press Gang, The West Wing, The Wire.

Billy Bragg, Ani DiFranco, Bob Dylan, Placebo, Taylor Swift, U2. (I don't pretend to have serious music preferences.)

Muffins, quickbreads, cookies, cakes. Currently working on perfecting the macaroni and cheese bake, peanut noodles, scrambled eggs and spaghetti puttanesca.
The six things I could never do without
Cardigans, coffee, gin, green spaces, my little sister, sunlight.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I'm supposed to be doing next, and whether I should relax more.
On a typical Friday night I am
late out of work, ignoring the gym and drinking with friends in my backyard.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be a gold star lesbian, but I drifted.
You should message me if
you've got good chat and love what you do (for fun or for a living.)
