Things to know about me:
A word on virtues. Niceness is not a virtue. It is indicative, instead, either that you are insincere or that you lack intellect sufficient to make proper judgments. Virtues I do recognize? Loyalty, wit, compassion, grace. Virtues I admire (but cannot claim as my own)? Patience. And the ability to adhere to a budget.
I am often told that things are rather black and white with me. In that spirit, things which I love and things which I loathe.
My love abides for: coffee, the Phillies, Opening Day, quizzo, bloody marys, Philadelphia, sarcasm, cooking, Dorothy Parker, Mummers, puppies, Galway, Wii, and a stupefying number of shameful television programs.
My disdain is boundless for: Septa, people who lack a fundamental self-awareness, the wedding-industrial complex and the poor souls sucked therein, and New York.
