I'm trying to visit all 50 states, but I'm only at 18. I'm not even half-way there, so I guess I should continue going to the gym so I don't drop dead before I get this done. My goal for this year is: have more fun. I like a good outing -- LA has tons of them -- but I'm also pretty happy BBQing and watching college football with friends (Go Bruins!). I can't wait to get over to the Science Center and look at the Space Shuttle, and I am working on perfecting my mac and cheese recipe. My goal for the winter is to finally learn to ski. I am prepared to suck at it.
I'm trying to bring back "boss" as slang for "great." I love old buildings, delicious sandwiches, cheese, coffee, wine, sports, and politics. I secretly think Colbert is funnier than Jon Stewart.
I am a loyal, honest, even-keeled person, who's close with her family (they live here, too -- I'm a third generation Los Angeleno. We do exist!) Family's important to me -- the one you're born into, and the one you make for yourself (including friends). I'm a (working) writer. I've written some books, and do a lot of general pop culture writing.
I'm looking for a stable, funny, educated, smart dude who likes sports, understands the appeal of the occasional dive bar, likes to travel, enjoys a cold beer and a spicy taco, and is politically liberal.
Finally, I like parenthesis. (Obviously.)
