Well, I am nearing my 100th post, so I supposed it's time that I added an About Me page. In case you haven't noticed, I always have a lot to say, but how do you go about encapsulating your life in such a small space? In the absence of any better ideas, I turn to that paragon of journalistic excellence, the Washington Post Date Lab. Thank goodness, I will never be a candidate. I will, however, appropriate some of their interview questions.
How you're DC: I've lived here more than five years now, and have spent time in nearly every part of the city. DC is truly a unique place to live and I have enjoyed all of it, from the diverse people to the amazing ethnic restaurants.
How you're not DC: City driving makes me nuts. Also, although I find politics interesting and important, I don't buy into the lifestyle that often seems to accompany it.
Worst date ever: Once, after homecoming, my date asked if I had a good time, and when I responded in the affirmative, he said, "Well, at least one of us did."
Last book read: State of Wonder by Anne Patchett
Your type: Five foot six, blond hair, blue eyes...you know-like this guy.
Happiest when: Deeply involved in something I care about: playing with my kids, writing, conversing with my husband. Out for a walk in the city or the woods. Or when I'm playing Zelda on the Wii
Desert Island DVDs: Remember the Titans, any season of 30 Rock
Dream date: Visiting a new ethnic restaurant, followed by a movie that has lots of previews, and a nightcap at a bar serving reasonable priced microbrews.
So, that's a little bit about me. I'd tell you more, but then you'd have no reason to keep reading my blog. So, carry on...
