I enjoy going to Burning Man with my friends - they're really cool humans.
I am, finally, learning to cook things that aren't toast...
I hate stupidity, and evil. I'm not sure which is worse. Either way, I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. Except in my case, god is a flying spaghetti monster. And the altar, if memory serves, had a nice red check tablecloth on it, with a nice glass of the house red.
I'm happily married, but we just moved to Oakland (after about 10 years in SF), and I'm always up for meeting new people, particularly those in my new neighborhood(s). :)
I am bubbly, bodacious, and sassy
I'm pretty good with words, too, despite what you see here. I'm not Chekhov (nor even Chekov), but I talk pretty sometimes.
I can tell dirty jokes (I mean really, really, what-is-WRONG-with-that-FREAK filthy jokes) all day, every day. It's like a river of verbal sewage. I can't help it. Your mom taught me.
I can rattle on for hours about totally random things, until I notice that everyone has left, or fallen asleep. It's a public service, I think. Crowd dispersal.
I still love movies. So much so, that I installed a somewhat obscenely-large (but awesome, okay?) movie screen in my living room. But great movies deserve a proper viewing. In no particular order, off the top of my head, some favorites:
- Pulp Fiction
- The Usual Suspects
- Blade Runner
- Wings of Desire
- Romeo + Juliet (Baz Luhrmann's take from 1996)
- Punch-Drunk Love
- L.A. Confidential
- Beat the Devil
- Harold and Maude
- El Mariachi
- Repo Man
- The Big Sleep
- Y Tu Mama Tambien
- Withnail & I
- Big Night
Music is eclectic. I like shuffle play. I like singer/songwriters. I like blues, jazz, electronic, indie, rock, and some pop music. I like discovering new music. I can't listen to commercial radio, though - it's all KQED, all the time. Or else I'm streaming music online, or one of my own playlists...
Food is also eclectic. I like fancy food, I like street food, I like it raw & cooked, I like it foreign & domestic. I'll try just about anything once. Except balut. I know it's stupid, but I just don't know if I could get it down. :P
