WARNING: This profile has become considerably longer than expected. The purpose is to give you the true picture of me.
Keep reading. You may find something interesting. Who am I?
Freelance reporter and political humor writer by day. Masked-vigilante superhero by night. Small business owner in my spare time.
I'm a free-spirited woman with a dry and sarcastic wit that I most likely learned from watching Monty Python as a child.
I can be a downright cynic, but more often than not try to stay grounded in reality.
I'm a tom-boy and a girly-girl in one.
I'm very confident in my professional life, a bit shy in the dating world, and sensitive in my personal life.
I am unapologetically stubborn and brutally honest.
I don't believe in horoscopes/zodiac, but for the sake of those that find it interesting, I'm a Virgo.
I do not sugar-coat, coddle or hold someone's hand just for the sake of sparing feelings. But, I will listen, hug and hold someone's hand when they need support.
I am a behind-the-scenes political activist. I may have been "front-lines" in protests and rallies at one time, but now I organize and participate in less obvious ways.
I'm an anomaly of sorts: I don't have cable or a dishwasher. I make much of my food from scratch. I still hand-write letters. Yet, I love (and crave) new technology.
I have a cat who thinks he's a dog.
I love discussing science, linguistics, religion and politics. And, I have a favorite bacteria and a favorite piece of punctuation.
I have a massive book collection, and have read 99 percent of it. I also wake up early to read the news before I leave for work.
I was raised Orthodox, have tried the Conservative movement and have finally landed in a religious realm I call "my own kind of Judaism."
I've quit smoking so many times I've lost count. After the last attempt, I've become a "closet" smoker again - my family doesn't know. Perhaps someday I'll quit again. Fun fact #62: I roll my own cigarettes.
I listen to NPR news religiously, and sometimes sit in my parking lot after I arrive home just to hear the end of a good story.
I love midnight monster movies. I have seen almost every zombie movie to date, including Hard Rock Zombies.
I have a political tattoo on my left inner wrist. I know the Jewish tradition and (interpretation of) law regarding tattoos. Despite begging from my mother, I have no intention of getting rid of it.
I eat a mostly vegetarian diet just because I love vegetables. I have nothing against eating meat.
I'm a true romantic.
I love dark chocolate with sea salt.
I cry at sad movies.
I swear like a sailor, so the saying goes.
I believe 100 percent that the Stanley Cup belongs in Detroit. We can still turn it around this year.
I believe that the smell of autumn is the best smell in the world. I like cooler weather. I love snow.
I am far from perfect - never will be perfect. Turns out, I'm only human.
