I am a writer, and about as outgoing and nice as that personality type allows, which is to say I'm introverted but nice. I'm opinionated but I've thought about those opinions longer than the average American. It takes me a while to come out of my shell with new people, but once I do, I like to think I'm rather delightful.
On trips, I need to have about 12 good books, which means Kindle has been a godsend. I especially like science fiction and fantasy like Philip K. Dick & Neil Gaiman. I'm from New Orleans so I'm a fan of rich, spicy foods. I'm a huge music geek, esp. late 70s punk rock/new wave, and early 90s alternative rock and Britpop.
So far I haven't been out of America, but I'm planning on it and desperately want to.
