I'm a big fan of an evening downtown for the lights, museums for the sights, but have no problem staying in nights to watch a movie and have some great conversation.
I love all forms of art - books, movies, music - and love to share my favourites with people, and find new ones. I'm totally hooked on music and love going to concerts.
One of the best things anyone has ever said about me is that I remind them of an old fashioned movie star.
Everything else blame on genetics and the rain.
I also have a music column that allows me to write about one of my passions.
I graduated Cum Laude from Metro with a journalism major and an English literature minor, so the written word is very important. I'd love to write for a music magazine like Stereogum or Rolling Stone, and work on my own fiction.
Cheering people up. Cheering people on.
I'm a really fast reader, so I go through books very quickly. I've been told I'm a gifted writer, and am always experimenting with different stories and forms.
Quoting applicable movies/lyrics/books at the drop of a hat.
I also am pretty good at being sarcastic, but never in a cruel way.

I love Mexican and Italian food, and am searching for the perfect cheeseburger.
