My non-aquatic interests include poodles, urban dictionary, and finding creative ways to prepare and consume garbanzo beans (latest development: chickpea tacos).
My mother once said that I use too many exclamation points in my writing, so I'm trying to scale back!
Long-term goal: create the militant wing of the Salvation Army
I will happily admit to owning "Snakes on a Plane" on DVD. I love watching documentaries of any variety, which frequently results in fervent topic-specific internet searches. Also on this list: the rare film that will make me cry (I include "Toy Story 3" and "Bridesmaids" in this tear-jerker category, so I have the feeling my definition of "sad" is slightly off-kilter).
I read too many food blogs to be able to pick a favorite food, but I am currently obsessed with the toppings bar at 16 Handles (not the froyo, just the toppings). As a result of growing up in a New York-Jewish household, I take lots of comfort in fried potatoes, briny/pickled items, and cured meats of any variety. I will dump half a bottle of hot sauce on almost anything, and I will not put butter in my coffee (the NYTimes says that's a thing?).
