me: cheeky, fun-loving, and independent lady with a good sense of humor and a great sense of rhythm (according to my kindergarten teacher-funny story). i love to dance (that is a huge understatement). i love music and enjoy catching a show when i can wrangle someone to go with me. i am a bit of a political junkie - sources - npr, nytimes and the pbs newshour (i want mark shields to be my grandpa). i love to travel. i'm no rock climber, but i do need to get my exercise in - bikram yoga (i'm a hot sweaty mess), weights, spinning, and tennis are my regime. i love competitive sports - just went to see the warriors in the playoffs - went to the 2014 world series - bucket list items - olympics and world cup!
more than anything else, i value my relationships with family and friends. my parents are from great britain and are still (happily?) married after 47 years. i grew up catholic - no longer practicing, but the catholic guilt remains ;-) i spend a lot of time with my sister and my three nephews. i love them to pieces. i also feel really lucky to have great friends from every stage of my life. i've been friends with my best friend since we were five!
you: a kind, funny, smart, and perhaps irreverent man, who won't be embarrassed when i start singing into my finger microphone, who wants to travel the world, go to the gym or on a hike, and head to a show or a game. someone who can make me laugh and who will laugh at/with me! someone who values family and friends. good with a bbq is plus!
music - arcade fire, the shins, the decemberists, jt, jayz, new order, the cure, the smiths, depeche mode.
tv- i'm not afraid to admit that i own and watch television. some favs, mr. robot, mad men, breaking bad, house of cards, homeland, arrested development, parks and rec, the daily show.
movies - royal tenenbaums, garden state, the breakfast club, the princess bride, dirty dancing. coincidence that they all have great soundtracks?
exercise - yoga, weight training, hiking, spinning
a good cup of tea (pg tips preferred!) and a good book
yes, that's seven, six is a random number anyway!

please don't message if you are looking for a pen pal - who has time for that?
