I have a crippling addiction to lip balm.
I prefer biscuits to English muffins. I love the smell of citrus fruits. I don’t think there’s such a thing as “too many” pairs of socks. I struggle daily to remember to water my plants, but have no problem remembering birthdays (including family members’ dogs’ birthdays). I am a huge fan of the Oxford comma.
I am terrible at watercolor painting. I have pretty decent handwriting unless I’m in a hurry. I love grocery shopping and don’t mind waiting in a long line to check out.
I talk to strangers in hallways, bathrooms, elevators, and in line at the post office.
I have resisted learning how to play chess because I’m afraid I will be so terrible at it that my self esteem will be forever crushed. I am very good at Pictionary, both as a guesser and as a draw-er. I was happy when Arthur Chu finally lost on Jeopardy.
Unless there is something really exciting happening, I have a hard time staying up past 10:30. I love road trips and audio books. I mix limeade with my beer. If I start to read a book I have to finish it, even if it is terrible.
Future Me has an awesome life. She works in the sciences, probably keeps bees (and maybe goats), and gets her passport stamped at least once a year. Word on the street is she's run a marathon or two.
Seriously. You'll want to invite me to your next picnic.
Favorite Movie: I'll admit it - Lord of the Rings.
Shows: Outside of documentaries (I'm a sucker for anything from the history of cement to nature docs narrated by Attenborough), I love catching up on shows on Netflix and I'm guilty of loving cable shows Game of Thrones, The Knick, Eastbound and Down, and The Leftovers.
Food: I have a sweet tooth - I love ice cream!
Something to read
When I tried to outwit him and stop wearing underwear, he started eating the crotches of my pants.
Or if you can help me practice my French.
