Where I am
I was born in CT, then I moved to MA for school, and remained "here" to work.
I have black hair, not brown, thank you!!!
Whud I like
I like strawberries, ocean waves, ballroom and Latin dancing, suspenseful
movies, photocopied collages, projecting trippy programs on walls, creeping around
in the dark, swimming, changing my clothes multiple times in the day, pulling the
covers over my head, barbecuing cheeseburgers and shish kebabs, picnics, tromping
through the woods, telling ridiculous tall tales and pizza pizza pizza.
Whud I do
If you wonder what I do at my job, well here's my
I'm a diagnostic
engineer. I go around breaking stuff. Did you ever see that commercial
where the AT&T guy says, "I like to break things!" And then he shoots
a lightning bolt out of a machine into a poor, helpless telephone?
I got to do that at my job to a few modems. It was exciting to hear
them go *SNAP!* as the electriciy exploded their little peabrains.
There were no visible sparks, and nothing actually caught fire. It
did smell a little bit odd.
Nifty things for your senses
Which reminds me, of all the good things there are out there to
smell...Here are some of my favorites:
Cookies or brownies or potpies from the oven
Fresh cut, green grass in the summer
Static electricity inside your sweater on a dry day.
Gasoline, reminds me of mowing the lawn. (see #2)
These are my sister Adriane's preferred smells:
Asphalt in the summer when it rains
Cynt Girl's Suggestion:
"Out of the water after swimming forever, you grab your towel
that's been on the beach in the sun and it smells warm and dry and nice :)"
The Body Shop vanilla oil
wood burning in Santa Barbara when it sinks to 40 degrees on winter nights (after it was 65 degrees
+earlier in the day)
the orange blossoms in my yard
Alexander (friend of Kathy Cross and now myself)
Very high on my personal list would be - besides the
already mentioned concrete in the rain and freshly
mawn lawn -
the smell of old books and of the the
screen i used to hide behind while my parents were
showing their slides on it, when i was small.
of course the slightly rotten iodine smell of small
Whud I look like

If you have anything else you like the smell of, e-mail me and
if I like it, too, I'll add it.
