Me

16. Soon to graduate high school. I live in central California, which has more of the heat and less of the glamor and pretty scenery of the rest of the state. I am stunningly average. I wear glasses and I have brown hair. I don't know why you would care about that, but if you do, there it is. My best friends are two gay boys, I write for my school's literary magazine, I can man a spotlight and speak a little French. I nearly always write in cursive; drink soda and practically nothing else; wear Maybe Baby perfume, ballet flats and Vans checkered slip-ons almost exclusively. I like dark chocolate and denim, am constantly lending people money, and get chai tea frappuccinos from Starbucks. I'm trying to stop biting my cuticles, I have two younger brothers and a cat, and I'm good at word and trivia games, but not crossword puzzles.

That's basically it. Except for:

Favorites

Television: I am a terrible television whore. It is probably my favorite thing in the entire world, which I realize is very sad. I obsess over it. I treat the first month of the fall season like a marathon; it's something you have to prepare for. There are magazines and reviews to read and previews to watch...Anyway, I watch The Office, 30 Rock, the Black Donnellys, Friday Night Lights, My Name is Earl, Entourage, Big Love, Veronica Mars, How I Met Your Mother, Knights of Prosperity when they first air. I like, shamefully, Girls Next Door. Project Runway and America's Next Top Model. I like British comedies like Spaced, Extras, and the original Office. Also canceled shows like Arrested Development, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, NewsRadio, the first season of The O.C., and all the Sherman-Palladino episodes of Gilmore Girls. I also love reruns of MASH, and I adore Jeopardy!

Movies: Billy Elliot is still my favorite, although I also love Breakfast at Tiffany's, Annie Hall, A League of Their Own, Brokeback Mountain, About a Boy, High Fidelity, Bridget Jones's Diary, Almost Famous, Terms of Endearment, St. Elmo's Fire, the Breakfast Club, The Way We Were, Funny Girl, Wet Hot American Summer, Mean Girls, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Stand By Me, Valley Girl, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Clueless, Heathers, West Side Story, Pleasantville, the Virgin Suicides, When Harry Met Sally, Welcome to the Dollhouse, Moulin Rouge, Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Mad Hot Ballroom, Spellbound, This is Spinal Tap, To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, Election, Brick, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Pan's Labyrinth, Volver, Notes on a Scandal...

Music: Right now I really like Tegan and Sara, Rilo Kiley, Jenny Lewis by herself, Fiona Apple, Ben Folds/Five, Ben Kweller, Ben Lee, Camera Obscura, Catherine Feeny, Chris Holmes, Arctic Monkeys, Andrew Bird, Brand New, the Decemberists, the Weakerthans, Elvis Costello, Fountains of Wayne, Jack's Mannequin, the Killers, Lily Allen, the New Pornographers, the Postal Service, Regina Spektor, Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens, We Are Scientists--that kind of thing. But I also love songs from musicals like West Side Story, Once Upon a Mattress, Rent, the Sound of Music, the Wedding Singer, Funny Girl, etc.; and cheesy '60s and'80s pop songs.

Songs, in particular: "Dear Mr. Supercomputer" by Sufjan Stevens, "Leash" by the Weakerthans, "Ruby" by Kaiser Chiefs, "A Better Son/Daughter" by Rilo Kiley, "Measuring Cups" by Andrew Bird, "John Wayne Gacy, Jr" by Sufjan Stevens, "The Charging Sky" by Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins, "Room 8" by Rilo Kiley, "Grace Kelly" by Mika, "Mass Romantic" by the New Pornographers, "Take Me Anywhere" by Tegan and Sara, "Brightest" by Copeland, "Decatur" by Sufjan Stevens, "Kill the Messenger" by Jack's Mannequin, "Uncorrected Proofs" by the Weakerthans, and "Living Room" by Tegan and Sara.

Books: I read David Sedaris, Chuck Klosterman, and Truman Capote a lot. I've started reading Sylvia Plath, too; The Bell Jar is now one of my favorite books. I also really love Ross O'Carroll-Kelly; I think those are so funny, but I haven't gotten to read any of those books since I went to Ireland two years ago.
