Overworked graduate student. Archaeologist. Attracted to all things that are the color green. Propensity for randomness. Queen of sarcasm. Easily amused, entertained, and distracted. Made happy by climbing on rocks, playing music, and drinking red wine (preferably, complimented by a bowl of ice cream).

I'm a dive bar kind of girl.

Mostly because they are terrible, but also because they're damn obnoxious.

  • Kirstie Alley .. could any person be more whiny and annoying?
  • David Spade. Not Funny.
  • Joan Rivers. Ouch.
  • Nicole Richie (some people don't deserve to be famous)
  • Tim Allen: Home Improvement was possibly the worst TV show ever.
  • Bjork , for many reasons.
  • Tyra Banks. She defines the term superfreak, and not in a good way.
  • Kathy Griffin ... makes me want to scream.
  • Carrot Top. Do I even need to say anything here?!
  • Tom Green ... his poor parents.
  • the guy from 'Jackass' - hell, all of them.
  • Keanu Reeves (duhhh...)
  • Donald Trump: probably don't need to explain this either.
  • Cameron Diaz: Just a bad actress, really. Always sound...

I love traveling, and I love people watching in airports, but I am not a fan of actually flying. Not one bit.

  • Take-offs.
  • Landings.
  • Airplanes simply were not designed for tall people... so uncomfortable
  • ... because of the above, I am incapable of sleeping on planes
  • Screaming babies. Oh my god. Seriously people, they make sedatives for a reason.
  • Coughing, sniffling, itching people.
  • Strangers who really do not get the hint that are you not interested in talking to them about meaningless crap for the entirety of your flight.
  • Stupid peanuts.
  • That damned curtain they insist on closing to separate first class and coach.
  • I'm always cold on planes, no matter what...
