Neviana is updating her profile because she is dreading writing the next chapter of Tuesday's Gone. She will speak in third person limited because, at least at this moment, it is amusing; however, this may change at any time without warning. This is my profile and I can do whatever I want, damn it.
Name: Neviana Genovese
Age: Nevi is finally old enough to be considered un-cool by high school students. Or maybe she's just plain un-cool? The latter is certainly plausible.
Occupation: Unemployed philosophy BA. Wooo!
Activities: In her spare time, Nevi likes to jog through her neighborhood with her moronic canine companion, Bob. Who, incidentally, is a horrible running parter. She also enjoys philosophizing, arguing, listening to NPR, and more arguing.
Interests: Aren't dinosaurs hilarious?
Music: Almost anything and everything. She has currently resigned herself to listening to Brand New's Deja Entendu ... over, and over, and over, and may someday admit to herself that she thinks it's a decent album. She also enjoys obscure Canadian and Scottish indie rock, for some reason. On a related note, she would like to state that after learning that the band Mull Historical Society consisted, in fact, of only one guy, her view of the world as a safe and peaceful place was immediately and irrevocably shattered.
TV: Golden Girls, Frasier, Futurama, MST3K, and practically anything on Lifetime. I know. Shut up.
Favorite Movies: Vanilla Sky, practically every Disney movie ever made, Entropy, I Heart Huckabees, The Scent of Green Papaya, Die Hard, Gone Baby Gone, all the Bourne movies, and ANYTHING with Jeff Goldblum.
Books: Nevi enjoys reading Faulkner and e.e. cummings, and she finds the work of Katherine Anne Porter to be particularly riveting. She reads more Nietzsche and Heidegger than is healthy, and would start a bar fight with Sartre if given the chance. Just saying.
Question I Am Asked Most Frequently: "Did you just pull a banana out of your purse?" ...And let me just say that the answer is yes, but I have my reasons. Healthy food can be hard to come by sometimes, and you always need to be prepared, so I travel with...bananas. And granola bars, though I suppose that is not as strange.
Quotes: “I gave up on new poetry myself 30 years ago when most of it began to read like coded messages passing between lonely aliens in a hostile world.” -Russell Baker
"...Let nobody doubt that whoever stands in that much need of the cult of surfaces must at some time have reached beneath them with disastrous results." -Nietzsche
"An engineer, an experimental physicist, a theoretical physicist, and a philosopher were hiking through the hills of Scotland. Cresting the top of one hill, they see, on top of the next, a black sheep. The engineer says: "What do you know, the sheep in Scotland are black." "Well, some of the sheep in Scotland are black," replies the experimental physicist. The theoretical physicist considers this for a moment and says "Well, at least one of the sheep in Scotland is black." "Well," the philosopher responds, "on one side, anyway." -William Knorpp
