: PhiladelphiaHow do you identify?
: Queer femme -- I'm in a 4-year relationship with a generally straight dude. He rules.Interests/hobbies
: Coffee-making, coffee chemistry, coffee nerdery. Photography, in particular self-portraiture. Going to see lots of live music and gathering gumption to make my own. Riding my bike as much as possible. Learning the ins and outs of opening a business opening someone else's place, because I plan to open my own in the next year. Also, scouring thrift stores and flea markets for that lovely thing I can't pass up. Collecting: Raggedy Ann and Andy things, dead things, old things with charm, jewels of the costume variety, and records that are scratched but have fabulous album art. Fashion, passably, but not mainstream things very much. I also do more than the average amount of baking. Favourite books
: How about authors instead? Jeffrey Eugenides, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Thisbe Nissen, sometimes Augusten Burroughs, Tom Robbins, Carson McCullers, Henrik Ibsen, Zadie Smith, Anita Diamant. I collect books impulsively, mostly from flea markets and thrift stores, mostly about art and artists, photography, essay collections, historical collections, feminist collections from the 90's (awesomely hilarious at times), classics that I should have read in high school or college but only skimmed to write the assignment. I love books. I would trade books, actually, if someone wanted to do that.Favourite films
: The Royal Tenenabaums (ok, all of Wes Anderson), Shortbus + Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Love Actually, all the Nova specials on Netflix, all the historical documentaries on Netflix, all of the bad crime dramas on Netflix. Revenge of the Nerds, the Harry Potters, Clerks, terrible 80s films starring John Cusack, Joan Cusack, or Jeff Goldblum, Weird Science, Labyrinth, Doctor Who (I have a problem).Favourite music
: David Bowie, Dr. Dog, LCD Soundsystem (yes, still), Ponypants, Wanda Jackson and the other ladies of rockabilly, the Carter Family, Willie Nelson, Meryl Haggard, Hoots & Hellmouth, Peaches, Neko Case, Regina Spektor, Bon Iver, The Flaming Lips, Roky Erickson, Antony & the Johnsons, The Avett Brothers, SO MUCH MORE.
