I love language, learning and teaching. I also love laughing, and can't bring myself to take much too seriously. I'm deeply motivated by food and drink (shopping, cooking, and consuming), but more so by smart and stimulating conversation - I'm always looking for a new perspective on things. I love to travel, when I can afford it (best places I've been - Iceland, Peru, France). I recently went to Bangladesh for a friend's wedding, that was a heck of a journey.
I look great in a dress.
What else do you want to know?
I look taller than I am. I've got nice eyes. I'm a bit sarcastic. A bit.
Favorite movies: The Usual Suspects. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Superbad. The Big Lebowski. Memento. A Fish Called Wanda.
Favorite music: Metric. Beck. The Shins. Spoon. Franz Ferdinand. Aimee Mann. Talking Heads. The New Pornographers. Vampire Weekend.
Food: Beer! (What? That's a food...) Sushi. Veggies. Seafood. Cheese. Peanut butter. Omelettes. Burgers off the grill.
2) My phone - although I often neglect it, I dropped it in the toilet and had to spend a couple days without it recently, and I felt naked the whole time!
5) Netflix (sad, but true)
I spend lots of time thinking about language - lately, I keep thinking I want to make an app where you enter crazy shit that people say to see if it's ever been said before, "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously" style. I'm not sure if I'd be amazed at how much we repeat ourselves or how much we don't!
I like to go out and play, for food and drinks or game nights or movies or concerts or whatever, so I spend lots of time thinking about plans. What's showing at the A.R.T.? Where should we go for dinner tomorrow night? Anyone up for pub trivia this week? Maybe it's a good night for bowling? What new board game should I get?
