Describe yourself in five or fewer words
Fashionably late, terminally chill, fluid
Describe your ideal day
Give me a late start accompanied by a big brunch with a new view with my partner and I'm happy as hell. Follow that up with a neighborhood stroll or a walk through nature before a bit of serious downtime (Europeans know what's up). Cap it off with dinner, drinks, and games with friends late into the evening. Can't beat it.
What's your favorite book and why?
Jurassic Park. I've read it too many times to count. No idea why. I guess I was so preoccupied with whether or not I could, I didn't stop to think if I should.
If you could time-travel back to a single point in history, where would you go and why?
In the spirit of my previous answer, I would absolutely love to see our prehistoric planet up close and personal. If popular media is any indication, I'm sure that would end terribly... but what an epic way to go.
If you could be any animal other than human for a day, what would you be and why?
Honestly? My dog seems to have it pretty good. Not to say I don't love my busy life but can you imagine a day where very little truly matters beyond a few good sniffs, scratches, and snoozes? Maybe that's telling, haha.
