How about we… Chat and go from there.
How about we… see "Once", winner of the 2012 Tony Award® for Best Musical.
How about we… go to the Tom Sachs show at the Armory.
An awesome place I've visited:
the backroom of the Museum of Natural History, where I touched the fanged tentacle of the largest giant squid ever caught (at the time)!
My perfect Sunday:
wake up early, exercise, eat a huge salad, go to a museum, cook while the last of the old-school PBS cooking shows are on, eat dinner, drink wine, read.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Tampopo, the first (and finest) ramen western.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I was born in New York City and raised just a little outside of it. In high school, I did things I wasn't very good at -- oboe, track, etc. After graduating college, I decided I'd only do what I loved and discovered the joy of connecting others.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
The menus and ambiance of many corporate cafeterias. I once worked as an incognito critic. They're sort of fascinating.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
are completely altruistic. have a raffish, slippery intelligence. are family men.
For me, a first date no-no is:
gossiping. Who gossips with you gossips of you.
What I would bring to show and tell:
my A++ paper from Harold Bloom.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
how I pitched Emeril my cooking show idea on a plane back from Paris...and he liked it!
I secretly want to be:
an actress, a mycologist, an author.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
impactful, even if the road is hard.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Assuming I HAD to quit, probably go to culinary school or get my MFA.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I am terrified of low-flying birds (bad incident with a Mama Bird).
I want to come home to:
a healthy home-cooked meal with my guy, a cool clarifying drink, a good book.
