Searching for Normalcy

"And finally, above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art…" – Felix Gonzalez-Torres

About Me July 18, 2009

  • I am almost always running late, no matter how early I start getting ready for something. It’s usually because I get caught up watching something on TV, or checking email, or looking through Google Reader, and I lose all track of time.
  • I am a night owl – always have been – and rarely fall asleep before 2AM. Unless I’ve taken allergy pills.
  • I think mushrooms are slimy and disgusting and I try to avoid all foods with mushrooms in them.
  • I have an amazing boyfriend that I love more than anything in the world. He is hilarious and sweet and affectionate and my best friend.
  • I get annoyed when people ask when said boyfriend and I are planning to get married. We are perfectly, happily, contentedly UN-married.
  • I could eat chicken fried rice from the Thai restaurant down the street every single day. It is that delicious.
  • My favorite color is black. I am perfectly aware that is not an actual color.
  • I love lists. I make lists for everything. Case in point, this list.
  • I detest dumb pop music like Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. My favorite band is The Cure.
  • I never miss a single episode of Criminal Minds and Law & Order:SVU.
  • My birthday is 7/17. My favorite number is 7.
  • I have been working from home since August 2005 and I love it.
  • I am obsessed with notebooks and pens. One of my favorite websites to online shop is
  • I am pro-gay marriage and gay adoption.
  • I hate people who brag about having money or material possessions. Same goes for name-droppers.
  • I love when my boyfriend calls me “Lulu.” It makes my heart happy.
  • I am trying really hard to stop cursing. So far, it hasn’t worked.
  • My favorite drinks are Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper and Cherry Coke Zero.
  • I belong to a Book Club I meet with regularly. Because of them I have read books I wouldn’t normally even pick up. I’m glad for this.
  • I also love photography and scrapbooking. I carry my camera with me all the time because you never know when a photo op will arise.
  • I hate wearing makeup now because I used to wear it every day for 15 years, when I was working in a corporate office. Now I only wear  it for special occasions, like weddings and parties.
  • Same goes for high heels.
