My self-summary
I like to read. I prefer vanilla ice cream to chocolate, coke to pepsi, and waffle fries over the ordinary kind. My favorite meal is brunch. I ask a lot of questions.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it. Traveling when I can, spending time with the people I care about, reading, trying to be a better person. Also working because I like to eat and have a place to live and wifi.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, telling stories, reading maps (handy when the GPS goes out!), planning vacations and remembering useless details. I'm also excellent at kissing!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really not sure. Maybe my laugh, which can be quite loud. I think that's a good thing!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All-time favorite book is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I just finished reading Bobby Orr's autobiography. I'm currently reading a book about life for servants in the Victorian era. Next up is Gretsky's book, "99 Stories of the Game", which I'm really looking forward to.

I don't watch a ton of movies. I'm a huge Disney fan, I've seen and enjoyed most of their recent films. But otherwise, I generally see a movie when someone else wants to. I'm just tagging along. Hidden Figures was really wonderful, that's the most recent thing I've seen.

TV: During the NHL season, hockey if at all possible. Otherwise, not a whole lot of TV. Reruns of Downton Abbey and West Wing. Archer, Portlandia, aad muchSteven Universe as possible. But really, hockey more than anything else. Sharks or Leafs, preferably.

Music: Sleater-Kinney, Pixies, lots of Broadway cast recordings (esp. Hamilton and Jesus Christ Superstar), lots of novelty music (Arrogant Worms, Tom Lehrer).

I love all food, but especially Mexican, Thai and Indian. My favorite dessert is key lime pie, followed closely by cheesecake. I'm also a pretty good cook, when I try. Lately my Blue Apron subscription has me trying, which has been really nice.

There's no category for podcasts here, which is just wrong. I'm an avid listener. Lately, it's mostly hockey podcasts: Marek vs Wyshinski, Puck Soup, The Steve Dangle Podcast; and a few Disney podcasts: The DisUnplugged, The Be Our Guest Podcast and WDW Prep To Go.
Six things I could never do without
1. Friends and family, especially the friends who have become my extended family. I don't see my parents and sister often, but I've been adopted by lovely people here. They make my life significantly more fulfilling, and fun.

2. A sense of humor: If I couldn't laugh, I don't know what I would do. I've learned to roll with the punches, but it's good to be able to laugh even when things are rough.

3. New people. Particularly friendly ones. I love going out alone and striking up conversations with strangers.

4. Hockey. I adore the Sharks and their collection of beautiful beards. I do not love their power play, but hopefully that'll be better next season. Leafs are my #2, and watching the baby hockey players tear it up this season has been deeply satisfying.

5. The ability to travel! I love exploring new places. I took a cruise to Bermuda last fall, and it was amazing. This year, it's Disney World with the family. And in 2019, an Eastern Caribbean cruise!

6. Benadryl. I have a cat, and he's awesome and I love him. But I'm allergic to him, so if I'm out of benadryl, I'm in for a bad time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The people I love. The trips I'm planning to take, the things I meant to do but didn't, the people I need to call. When the next opportunity to go to brunch will be. Whether or not Burnsie's beard is long enough to be braided. How exactly the NHL intends to punish players who go to the Olympics with the support of their team owner because do you really think that Ovi will be bothered by his contract being voided or something? That's basically sending him to the KHL and getting him a raise.

Also, what I'm going to during the lockout. Because let's face it, it's coming.
On a typical Friday night I am
likely hermiting at home and recovering from the week. Probably watching Steven Universe or hockey and brushing the cat. Or hanging out with the boyfriend, his wife and their kids for dinner and some games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I see a therapist once a month. I'm on an unending mission to improve myself!
You should message me if
If you're actually willing to meet in person. I like chatting here, but I would like to meet face to face before too long. It's much easier to figure out if something is worth pursuing when you meet in the real world.

If you like hanging out and writing letters to Claudia Tenney about your concerns as a constituent.

If you want to talk hockey. Because my god can I go on about my team, and I probably want to know all about yours.

I'm pretty easy going and I like meeting new people. If you think we'd get along, please message!
The two of us
